I own the EDT and have sampled the EDC numerous times. The EDC is FAR superior to the EDC, in my opinion. I like the EDT, but it's got a harshness, and soapy astringency that is a little annoying. I smell absolutely no similarities at all between the EDT and EDC. They may as well have given them different names. The EDC is a great warm, dark smooth floral fougere that smells like pipe tobacco smoke on fabric. Awesome stuff. The EDT to me smells almost like a powerhouse fragrance, with brutal top notes that practically will puncture your sinuses, and tons of oakmoss. Good stuff, but nowhere near as good as the EDC, IMO.
