Gucci Envy or Dolce Gabbana pour Homme?
I like them both, but my b/f is allergic to D&G PH, there's something in it that makes him sneeze non-stop over the top notes and something that makes my nose itch too. Envy seems to be softer.
Envy, even though i also like D&G. Envy is just so smooth and dark. First cool day here in a while so i just put some on for the evening.
Top Five: Oud Wood, Aventus, Kyoto, Rose 31, Tam Dao
These are two totally different beasts, but I'd go with Envy. Something about D&G is a bit cloying to me. Having said that you have to be easy on the trigger finger with Envy, as a little goes a long way.
Sampling Envy today for the first time.
Nice ... think I smell fig leaf in there ... let's see the drydown ...
Envy; Dolce & Gabbana PH is a one note theme.
All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Envy definitely. It's in my top 3. It has awesome longevity and sillage. Even after a whole night of dancing, sweating, and sitting in a room full of smokers I could still smell it on me when I woke up the next morning. How many fragrances can you say that about?
Dolce and Gabbana is a much better and more versatile scent IMHO

I like both, and they are very different, but given a choice I'd take D&G in a heartbeat. I love the black pepper note in D&G.
Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

D & G smells like a glass of lemon juice with a cigar stubbed out in it.
jeez thats a difficult one. I love both very much. it actually depends on whether I am feeling more extroverted (D&G) or introverted (Envy)...I guess. Something about the spicy sweet incensy feel of Envy makes it more personal a scent than D&G pH...not that it takes away anything from the lovely tobacco/coumarin/citrus feel of the latter.
and your point would be...actually, that made me LOL...though I wouldn't go to that extreme (stubbed cigars stink...you always let them burn out on their own), the mix of lemon and tobacco is what I enjoy about this one...doesn't seem like it should work, but I enjoy it...Originally Posted by Ballardbeau
anyways, succinct and clever was Ballardbeau's "review"...
I cannot stand either one but if I had to choose, go with envy.
Never smelled Envy...but & ADORE D&B. I'm saving this one for cooler weather & I can't wait. But...I'll give Envy a try sometime so I can give a more unbiased answer.

I have both, like both. Very different fragrances. I prefer Envy slightly.
I have both and think both are really good, but I prefer Envy. *Then again, I'm a nut for spices. *I was going to say I find the Dolce & Gabbana pretty linear, but I find the same is pretty much true of Envy. *Both have their place, but I find Envy evokes more nocturnality, more cool, more rhythm, like good jazz music, more romance & poetry. *
No doubt about it: Go for ENVY!
D&G is annoying...
Yup, I choose Envy for all those reasons!Originally Posted by Yvan
ENVY is better!!!! [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif]
This description beautifully summarizes my own thoughts on the matter. Thank you.Originally Posted by Yvan
I tried Envy today, and I fell in love immediately so much that I bought it... Ummm, smooth an very sexy smell, fresh, elegant, deep. I like the cinnamon note (cinnamon, I think?).
I cant imagine a woman whom it doesnt like this smell...
Envy ...........by a mile
I find D&G boring, linear, and way too common. Too easy to end up smelling like "annoying cologne guy" with this one because the notes are so unnatural. Envy is a more warm, inviting, and sexy.
I think, for me, a large part of the appeal of the Gabbana--when I use it, which hasn't been too much lately--is the combination, or contrast, between the citrus and the tobacco...those are the two main components I get, anyway. Just for fun, I did a search in the Basenotes product directory of men's scents with tobacco, and I was a bit surprised to see that there were only 47; somehow I expected to see more, and I'm not sure how many you can actually smell the tobacco in. I don't know about you, but I'd like to see more scents with tobacco, especially a few more that combine the citrus and tobacco, but at least slightly different from the Gabbana. Then again, maybe I just need to get a few more pre-existing scents with tobacco in them.
Dude! *I love that description! *LOL! *Originally Posted by Ballardbeau
And so, I must vote Envy!
Envy spanks D&G PH like a red-headed step-child.
