I prefer SMW. Both are great but Hamptons had some kind of synthetic twang that seemed to irritate my nose. When I owned SMW, I got 12 hours until I took my nightly shower out of it. So, it had excellent longevity and sillage on me me. You can't go wrong with either. Some claim that SMW has a sour tart note which Hamptons doesn't have. I don't get that but these seem to be some issues for and against. Ultimately, I can sway you either way. I prefer SMW but Hamptons might be easier to wear. I need to test it again. Just thinking out loud.
