    Le Troisieme...PUH has too much lavender for my taste.

    Primrose dear heart, I concur with Jaime. I cannot choose just one and will not make a "Sophie's Choice" between these two.

    3 man is wonderful, and I love the rose note it this one. It's a floral with class, never overwhelming, but present. I like all phases of 3rd Man....in fact just wore it last night. it is smooth, balanced and interesting.

    I've not tried PUH, as I'm not a hugh lavender fan, so I cannot compare.

    I voted for Le Troisieme. =) For me it's easier to wear.

    3me Homme for me! Pour un Homme is nice, but the smoky, waxy, and rose notes in 3me Homme are most awesome.

    I find them very different. Love Pour un homme and find Third Man unwearable.

    Very well put. I agree completely.

    I adore, love and admire both. They are, to me, both true classics and masterpieces.

    Caron Pour Un Homme is more of a "scent", and definitely amazing in Vintage formulation...but I also have current formulation (and apply it a certain way to enjoy it). It is pure aromatherapy in a bottle and will never be "out-of-style". Timeless and will always be part of my collection. A 3-piece jazz band that is in perfect rhythm.

    Le Troisieme Homme is a true "fragrance" versus a "scent" like CPuH - and is utterly fantastic! Vintage formulation is also superior, but current is also excellent. The composition is much richer (more components) and it wears accordingly. A fragrance to admire and could have easily been created 30-40 years earlier. It has a "Victorian" garden feel for me. A dandy, aromatic, citrus/floral opening with a great clove note in the heart and a base of brilliant vetiver, green moss and warm amber. It, too, will always be in my collection.

    I chose not to vote - as one cannot choose between these two without feeling like they are leaving one of their dear friends to be alone. To me, a true aficionado of fragrance must have both in their collection at least from a perspective of understanding compositions and the difference between "scent" & "fragrance".

    The house of Caron is brilliant and we should be grateful...I simply cannot pick one of these over the other.

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    I love both. I find 3ieme Homme to be the more floral of the two. In fact the opening blast of clove makes me think of Coca Cola syrup. They are both wonderful, complex, classic perfumes, but Pour un Homme really hits all my buttons.

    For me it would be 3rd homme by miles. Much more complex. Ich love the tobacco / ashtray notes. I really don't like PuH. Too much vanilla, i think it's ethyl vanilline. Smells very synthetic to me, not very well composed while 3rd homme seems much more balanced.
