    Default Gucci Pour Homme 2 vs. Burberry London

    I started out disliking both upon initial application. They both grew on me over time. One is my absolute favorite. The other I just purchased this month, but is getting a lot of wears so far. I've always thought there was some similarity between the two. The Burberry always reminded me of pumpkin spice...the gucci has a warm cinnamon thing going on, but somehow, they're similar to me. At one point I felt if I had one, I didn't need the other. But eventually it grew on me and persuaded me to buy it. (I'm being discrete because I don't want to sway anyone to either fragrance).

    Anyways, I would like to know which one you prefer. Thanx in advance.

    I bought Gucci PH II because I got a great deal on a full set of a great scent, but if I could have gotten the same deal on London, I would have gone with that, I think. London is just more modern to me, and I tend to prefer a more modern feel.

    GPH II for mine.

    I get zilch out of London - nada! It starts of nice, boozy, and promising; then it vanishes in minutes.

    Gucci pour homme II has better longevity on my skin than that of London. However, London just plain smells better, imo.

    My preference is London.

    I own both, and I think they each have their charms, but I think Gucci II is the better between the two. I bought them both blind and immediately liked the Gucci II, but didn't care so much for the London (reminded me of a hamster cage). Only recently have I started to reevaluate London, my nose has changed quite a bit within the last year. I like London now, it's much fresher than I remember it, but still prefer the Gucci in a side by side comparison.

    OMG - I know the note you're talking about (both of them)! I think I'm ruined for life on London!

    London is straight tobacco and old lady candle shop to me, the definition of unsexy.

    Gucci Pour Homme II for me. Has better sillage and is longer lasting than London.

    Burberry London. Longevity relatively poor though.

    I have yet to try Gucci pH II so I can't comment on it. But I've had Burberry London before. Love the opening and the drydown has a modern masculine feel to it. Sillage is average and longevity is definitely poor. The bottle rocks though, lol.

    I quite like both, but I prefer Gucci PH II in the warmer months, and London in the cooler ones. Neither is particularly long lived, but delightful when in full bloom

    i like them for different reasons, equally . . .

    GPH2: i like that even though its a spicy, woody concoction it still has a light sheerness to it that quietly announces itself (or if i hated this stuff i could say 'this stuff doesn't last for sh!t'). the dry cinnamon spice radiating from it is my favorite part and the basenotes round it out very well so its understandable. it smells almost like what i think a guy should naturally smell like. it smells like a more masculine version of Burberry for Women (the older one in maroon box). try Lalique Equus sometime. it has the same feel, just slightly more 'natural' smelling, ve synthetic.

    Burberry London: this on lasts forever on me and is much more boastful. its def sweeter and 2 spritz is enough or people can smell me from 50 yards away. richness, christmas-like spice, warm tobacco - i would say its almost christmas spicy with a sweet patchouli back bone.

    Second on the Lalique Equus vs. GPH II similarity. They're both quiet sweetened tea-like spicy scents.

    If you are disappointed by the lack of sillage & longevity (which I am sometimes) you can try L'Artisan's Tea for Two. You could see that one as a GPH II Extreme / Concentree version.

    I vote London (I don't dislike GPH II, but it pales in comparison to both London and the first GPH).

    Ok...so far, we've got a few that like them equally, but among those that chose, London edged out the Gucci by 2 votes. I prefer the Gucci, so I vote Gucci. That still keeps London in the lead by one vote.

    And I thought I was the only one that noticed London's horribly poor longevity. It's funny, cuz last night I sprayed in on the inside of my wrist, and Joop on the outside, and maybe two hours later, I couldn't smell the London, but I can still smell traces of the Joop on my hand. I wonder if it can be detected by others though. The Gucci on the other hand...I smell traces of it all day. In fact, on one occassion I got a compliment on it after atleast 10 hours of wearing it. Couldn't believe it. To me it's nicer, a little warmer, and lasts way longer. You can't go wrong with Gucci Pour Homme 2.

    You know...at first I didn't get the Tea for Two comparisons, mostly because the Tea for Two starts out a bit strong and somewhat pungent, but when it dries down, it is somewhat similar to GPH2. I think the Gucci is better though.

    I absolutely love the scent, and it lasts a hell of a long time on my skin. Great for the summer, yet suitable for colder weather IMO.

    Isn't just great how you can wear it ALL FREAKIN YEAR ROUND FOR ABSOLUTELY ANY OCCASSION!!! Gph2 is awesome. London is nice too, but it lasts for 3 hours tops, and that's being generous. I was seriously wondering if I got a defective bottle. It doesn't last half as long as it's big brother, Burrberrys for men.

    Lol. I still don't fully get the hype around GPH1. I've got a tiny bottle of it, and it really doesn't impress me. It's just ok. Envy and GPH2 is where it's at.

    London is my kind of scent. But the longevity is unfortunately very poor.
