    I vote YSL Pour Homme (I have the concentrated version). The longevity is great, and the lemon stays prominent throughout. Really great stuff.

    I'd say if you're under 30, go YSL. Over 30 go Sauvage.
    Of course I'm generalizing people, don't go to town on me
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I'm over 40 and I love YSL PH. I have not tried the concentrated version.

    Of the two, I say YSL pour Homme - but would recommend YSL pour Homme Haute Concentration or Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir.

    I'd go for Eau Sauvage. To me it smells more sophisticated whereas YSL smells raw and edgy, especially the haute concentration version, although I wear it from time to time.

    would it make a diff if they were vintage formulations? i was told there was no haute concentration available.

    Love 'em both. Really do, and love them powerfully. For duration and raunchiness I go for YSL. For transcendental beauty and comfortable wonder I go for Eau Sauvage.

    Eau Savage is sublme, one of the greatest scents created by man. The YSL is something less than that.

    I hated YSL PH, I am utterly in love with Eau Sauvage.
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    Very well said.

    YSL pH surprised me more with its dirty top notes. It's also more lemony than ES.

    I own both and like both, but tend to reach for Eau Sauvage much more frequently.

    Eau Sauvage by a country mile. Elegant and well constructed fragrance.

    If you want to smell like a lemon then go for the YSL.

    This is a tough call for me as I love and own them both. YSL pour Homme has better memories associated with it, but I think Eau Sauvage is the better scent by just a hair.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    I have both, both have very poor longevity on me.
    I like Eau Sauvage more than YSL PH, but keep finding YSL PH for much cheaper prices than Eau Sauvage.

    If I were going to buy a scent with lousy longevity, I'd want the price to be heavily discounted.
