    Wink which rive gauche is better?

    Just wondering which one would be more appropriate for a first time buy, the intense version or just the regular edt? Or is there any difference? I have faith in your comments, Thanks----Joe

    Well, I own the regular Rive Gauche and I have to say, even though the intense version has more patchoulli, the regular one is the way to go! If you would like my bottle, please PM me and we will work something out!

    In my opinion, the regular EDT is better, and I recommend it.

    IMHO there is not that much of a difference between the regular RG and RG intense. I have tried them on side by side and had trouble telling them apart. RG intense has as mentioned before, a stronger pachouli note and may be slightly longer lasting. On the other hand the regular RG is somewhat fresher than the intense version. I like both versions a lot but I do not think they are different enough to own them both. You could probably get a better price on the regular version though, since it is more common.

    I agree with previous posters,regular Rive Gauche is better choice IMO,patchouli note is better balanced and the smell is fresh and woodsy- beautiful from top to drydown and very masculine

    Man Mark, it seemed like an easy decision untill you said intense was better. Well, I just ordered the original, time to see if the magic really works!

    I find too original Rive Gauche much better balanced than intense version. But they're both a quality fragrances, if you are able, try them both & make up your mind.

    I just went and checked and I have the EDT version. Don't know how it could get any better than that!

    I agree, I don't think there's any need for a lighter (Eau légère) or heavier (Eau Intense) formulation as the original is powerful enough without being overpowering.
