Patricia De Nicolaï On Habit Rouge

Patricia De Nicolaï has Guerlain flowing through her veins: she is the great-granddaughter of Pierre Guerlain and the niece of Jean-Paul Guerlain. So it's fitting that I begin my week-long tribute to Habit Rouge with her. This is what she had to say when I asked for her thoughts on the fragrance.

"As you may imagine, Habit Rouge is very particular to me. It reminds me of my childhood with my grandfather and father who both used to wear it. It was – and it still is! – very powerful for an eau de toilette, easily identifiable, with a warm and overwhelming sweet, leather-amber facet. A facet which was very modern at the time, which created a real olfactory style, inspiring loads of different fragrances which followed. As the first, very strong and long lasting eau de toilette for men, we could even say that Habit Rouge was the oud of the sixties!"

Stay tuned for more Habit Rouge quotes...
