The first ambery fragrance for men, Habit Rouge pays homage to the art of equestrianism, to human skill and animal strength.
With Habit Rouge L’Instinct, Guerlain’s legendary fragrance for men has been reinvented in a spirit of freedom and power. The spirit of an untamed horse whose vigour and strength have inspired a new eau de toilette intense.
Habit Rouge L’Instinct breathes an air of freedom over the legend by reinterpreting its iconic signature: hemp exalts rose, sending a daring thrill through the iconic patchouli, vanilla and leather accord.
"HABIT ROUGE IS THE FRAGRANCE THAT TRANSCENDS ALL GENERATIONS. WITH HABIT ROUGE L’INSTINCT, I WANTED TO BRING A SPIRIT OF FREEDOM TO THE ORIGINAL GARMENT, LETTING THE FRAGRANCE BREAK FREE OF ITS SHACKLES AND GALLOP OFF. I WANTED TO HEAR THE SOUNDS OF PANTING AND HOOVES." Delphine Jelk, Guerlain Perfumer
