    Did you tried them already, or you're choosing based on someone else's opinions?

    Both are very good options among their category, as much as they please your own nose.

    If you like both, Eternity is probably much more like a "classic", although there are arguably dozens of other classics around.

    Not sure what "atemporal" means here and don't think your two choices have much in common at all. Glancing at your wardrobe leads me to believe that the XS would actually get some use based on what you already have.

    I like both, but for the very warm weather here I'd go with Eternity. XS could probably work better for evening wear.

    Eternity is the classic one out of the two, but seems to have been over done usage wise in the US, such that some people react negatively to it.

    I think XS is great as well, though I think them more warmer weather scents.

    Both have elicited very positive comments from women when I wasn't expecting any, especially the XS.

    They are not identical, but Eternity is the daddy of a whole family of aromatic fougeres.

    Burrbery Men,
    Platinum Egoiste,
    Herrera
    Himalaya,
    XS,
    Boucheron,
    Dolce and Gabanna PH. ETC.
    YSL Lhomme.

    My recommendation
    3. Herrara
    2. Himalaya
    1. PE / YSL LHomme.

    Out of the two I recommend XS. Eternity gives me headaches and it is so easy to over spray because it induces nose fatigue quite easily.

    I generally love aromatic fougeres but I completely dislike Eternity. I think it's also the daddy of "cloying fougeres", so to speak.

    I agree.
    Same could be said about A*man and the new wave of gourmands
