In spite of the fact that this is a flanker of Guerlain Homme launched in 2008, this perfume looks more promising to me. Guerlain Homme L’Eau was introduced in 2010 as a citrus aromatic fragrance, having as responsible with creation the Guerlain house perfumer, Thierry Wasser. The more interesting facet of this fragrance comes from the detail that in here, the citrus character is more pronounced compared to the original. Feels like this refreshing and stylish Eau de Toilette was designed to convey comfort during the cold winters, as a result bringing the nature closer and inspiring you into revealing your wildest side.
The construction of Guerlain Homme L’Eau brings more energy and brightness into the picture compared to the nature of its predecessor. The opening of the fragrance is build upon notes of bergamot and grapefruit; then, the heart follows with a replica of the characteristic accords from Guerlain Homme: geranium and mint. The dry down, comes with a woody notes that is combined with moss accords and rum for a typical emotion.
Similar to the original, the bottle of Guerlain Homme L’Eau was also created by a team from Pininfarina Design. This time, the frozen soft green color of the bottle represents better the citrus aroma that encloses the liquid and evokes the notion of freshness. Even tough I was not a fan of the original, this time Guerlain Homme L’Eau seems quite interesting and could be an idea for the winter time of the year or early spring, with its reinterpreted fresh and cold aromas that confer a more natural aspect to the final result.
