    Default Which one to get of these similar fragrances? Geir vs AHS vs Versace PH

    They have their similarities and minor differences, I can't really tell which one lasts longer, their price range is a bit similar. I need a second opinion on which one to get.
    Thanks in advance.


    Allure Homme Sport
    Geir
    Versace PH

    AHS. Geir gave my ex a headache. Versace isn't as sexy as AHS.

    which one do you think lasts longer?

    Get VPH. I haven't tested them extensively enough to tell which lasts longer, but Geir gets nauseatingly sweet, and AHS has some mega-aldehydes up top, that just really ruin the whole composition, smells sort of like a wet paper bag. Stick with the VPH.

    and for some reason, VPH is cheaper online, is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    Chanel prices aren't discounted as heavily as Versace fragrances. Allure Sport is a good all arounder and it's hard for a normal person to hate this one. Fresh, spicy, sweet. Warm and cooling. Versace Pour Homme seems suited for spring/summer (since it's in the vein of Acqua Di Gio, but with a slightly different twist and refinement). I assume the initial freshness was tied to Allure Homme Sport. Geir Ness has a potent floral top note that's somewhat refreshing. Then it warms up to this ambery spicy sweetness (I guess that's where you got AHS from?). This is an Eau du Parfum, so 1-3 sprays is good. Even on my skin (which seems to drink fragrances), 2 was more than enough. With 3, I can be smelled across the dinner table. AHS and VPH are safe buys, but Geir Ness is a definite try before you buy because it might be too strong for you compared to the other two.

    Thank you
    I've been collecting samples of these 3, Geir from Disney, and the other two from Sephora
    It's just my nose isn't trained enough to tell the difference from the 3.

    Geir is the only one worth owning of the three IMO.

    Agree 100% - but go easy on the trigger.

    I own and love Geir. It's one of the fragrances that make me look forward to warm weather.

    The others pale in comparison.

    Geir is EdP strength. Lasts all day on me.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    I prefere Allure Homme Sport. VPH's longevity is horrible on me (although I do like the scent itself), and Geir gives me a headache.

    I like Versace PH the most. I agree with mtgprox that the aldehydes and some other funky note in AHS really ruin the composition. It's aimed at a younger crowd with its sweetness and relative smoothness. Versace PH is a great scent that has a great evolution - wonderful and tart citrus notes up top, a heart full of clary sage softened and sweetened slightly by some florals (orange blossom and something else), which then transitions to a wonderful cedar, oud, and tonka drydown which is only minimally sweet. The scent is decidedly masculine, very fresh and uplifting all throughout its development, and is quite a 'full' composition for a fresh/aquatic scent. It ends up being quite woody, actually, which makes it wearable (and enjoyable!) year round. It's especially nice in the doldrums of winter where its freshness and vibrancy uplift the spirit and the woods in the drydown feel full enough to satisfy. On the flipside, it is never too heavy to be worn in the heat.

    The only drawback is the slightly synthetic feel of the later stages of the drydown, but that is true to all of the above scents to some degree. Geir, to me, smells almost exactly like 'generic fabric softener.' The most synthetic smelling of the bunch.

    Geir: Too green. WAY too green.

    Allure homme sport: if a fragrance has an "image", then the image of this fragrance is far too collegiate for my taste.

    That leaves me with Versace pour homme, which I enjoy for all the same reasons SOS has already listed.
