Created in 1965, Habit Rouge was the first oriental fragrance for men in perfumery. From the moment of its launch, this tribute to Guerlain's passion for the dressage of horses created an element of surprise with its scents of sensual and bold vanilla. An oriental that is by turns citrusy, warm and accented with vanilla, it expresses the genius of contrast and well-mastered emotions.
Habit Rouge incarnates a man who is enamoured of refinement and capable of all manner of audacity. He lives his life fervently and distinguishes himself with a trail of extreme sensuality.
With its modern geometry and mastery of form, Habit Rouge has an eternally elegant French appeal.
Dynamic, passionate, audacious.
Bitterness becomes freshness, playing on refined harmonies of lime and bitter orange. Its spicy, sophisticated heart, warmed by patchouli, rests on a base where leather mellows under the creamy caress of benzoin and vanilla with a rebellious touch.
The first oriental men's fragrance, Habit Rouge is considered at Guerlain to be the "Shalimar for men".
It is crafted around favourite materials (bergamot, vanilla, patchouli, tonka bean), which we find in the Guerlinade.
The Guerlinade, the sensual olfactory seal of Guerlain creations, gives Habit Rouge a perfectly inimitable style.
