    Terre D'Hermes edt

    Dior's fake iris just smells like a girl with pock marks who uses too much foundation.....big turn off.
    Guerlain Homme in both concentrations is just a massive driving of the guerlain bus into a ditch.
    Terre D'Hermes EDT is really incredible layered with either D'Orange Verte scent, and occasioanlly is great on it's own in several weathers.

    1. Dior Homme. Intense isnt as wearable, far too sweet / cloying for day wear. Good for a dinner suit or dressing well on a cool winters night.
    2. Havent tried Intense so cannot comment, however the original was like a lame version of YSL's Live Jazz.
    3. Money wise - the Edt. If I had money to burn I'd consider the Parfum, but with 100mls of the EdT I don't see a point when they smell the same.

    The latter in the first two, I think Terre D'Hermes parfum wears too close to the skin.

    Dior Homme Intense is a fantastic Club or evening fragrance, but If your like me and live in a
    freezing cold Country then it makes an amazing Winter fragrance.

    I tested terre d'hermes several times both EDT and Pure but I just could not justify buying the
    Pure perfume as the EDT lasts forever anyways and pritty much smell alike probably 5%
    difference.

    I'd go with terre d'hermes

    Dior Homme and Terre d'Hermes edt. I find nothing wrong with their overall balance and structure, as long as I don't overspray. Easier to overkill with the Intense or Parfum version imho.

    Neither Guerlain Homme nor the Intense version. They're just not Guerlain enough for me (Guerlain picked the wrong man; they shd have poached Jacques Polge, Dominique Ropion or maybe Maurice Roucel).

    Wow... Were the pock mark comments necessary.. Geez. Could have just said a girl who wears too much foundation. But, anyway... Were you saying the girl who wears too much make up is a turn off or the iris?

    Dior Homme Intense for me! Guerlain Homme/Intense isn't bad, but nothing great. Terre d'Hermes isn't bad either, but nothing spectacular. Very well made though. Dior Homme is pretty good too, but Dior Homme Intense wins because of the fact that it's more gourmand.

    1- Dior NEITHER it's crap
    2- Guerlain: BOTH have their place
    3- TdH edp because it's deeper

    1. Love both Diors. Homme for the day, Intense for the night.
    2. Guerlain Homme is a good summer day scent. Haven't tried the intense version. Been looking for it, haven't found it yet.
    3. Not a big fan of TdH. I own it - it was a gift - but don't really care for it. Just doesn't appeal to me.

    Dior Homme Intense & Guerlian Intense of course! Why half step?
