Naturally, Miss Dior Eau Fraîche couldn't live up to either of those fragrances. Lately my relationship with Dior has felt like a bad marriage. Remembering the early days of the romance — Diorella, vintage Diorling, my beloved Miss Dior, vintage Dioressence — I keep going back hoping to...

launched Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisée, a flanker of a flanker: Guerlain Homme begat Guerlain Homme L'Eau and now we have Homme L'Eau Boisée. (Hey, Guerlain, what about a NEW men's fragrance...and let this "idea" rest?) Homme L'Eau Boisée was developed by Thierry Wasser; his goal — to...
