I suppose it depends. They work better for different situations IMO. LIDGE seems to go over better with a bit more "mature" women (think like late 30's early 40's), while DHI smells a bit younger. Don't get me wrong, the Guerlain doesn't smell dated, but it does have sort of a waxy quality that people in my age group (mid to late 20's) might not appreciate as much as DHI.
I would say the Guerlain is a bit more formal and the DHI is more fun. But that's just to me. Even though I have both, I really don't wear either all that often, but do enjoy them when I do. It would be hard to pick one as I enjoy different aspects of each.
Neither I would consider a personal favorite
though, compared to many of my other bottles. If forced to pick a "winner" of the two, I'd probably take DHI, but like I said, they each serve a different purpose, so I'd probably select the Dior based on its versatility and my age.
I don't find LIDGE feminine though.
