    Default Escada Pour homme or Givenchy Gentleman

    Which one of these two "gentlemans" cologne do you prefer, and why? How is sillage/longevity on these two? i have never tested them..

    I like both actually, but would choose the original GG over Escada. The sillage for GG is very good and longevity is also.

    Escada has moderate sillage and longevity, but is a good scent for cooler months.

    ^ What he said. I love and own both, but would sooner part with the Escada, especially since vintage GG is so hard to come by these days.

    I like both, but currently (per my fickle nose) prefer the Escada

    But how is the longevity/sillage on Escada Pour Homme? I`m hunting for a elegant refined scent in the same style as Caravelle Epicee, Passion Boisee etc with great sillage and staying power.

    I never tried GG, but I will recommend Escada PH. I never had a problem with the sillage or longevity... (6-8 hours easily...)

    They have roughly the same longevity and sillage on me. Both last all day and project well, but I wouldn't consider either to be powerhouses.

    I'm going to have to be partial to Escada PH simply because I greatly dislike Givenchy Gentleman.

    I own and love both (and I love both old and new versions of GG). Personally, I prefer GG because I love patchouli-heavy scents. If you're looking for something on the spicy side, definitely go GG, but if you want something sweeter and slightly floral, go for Escada. Most people like Escada for the cold months, but personally I only wear it in the summer (light sprays!). It is one of my favorite summer scents.

    Actually both, but if you prefer a more leather frag, with minimal citrus, floral and herbal notes, Gentleman is more adequate
    if you prefer more gourmand frag, with bitter-sweet Oriental notes, with a slight suggestion of a cognac- and cigar tobacco smell, Escada Pour Homme is the right one

    The givenchy starrs a prominent patchouly that, as of now, is still too strong for me.
    The vintage should also be difficult to obtain.
    Escada is very nice, I have not encountered any problems with sillage or longevity either.
    so Escada gets my vote.

    Aromi is right: Escada is quite good, but fleeting, Givenchy Gentleman's sillage and longevity are much better.

    I`m not a big fan of citrus-notes.. Does Escada Pour Homme share some similarities with Terre de Sarment by Frapin? I like that one. I also like Bois1920 Real Patchouly,Caravelle Epicee and Straight to Heaven.

    I cannot tell, since I don't know Terre de Sarment by Frapin
