    If you are really keen on getting one of these frags, do yourself a favor. Get the Le Male. FDM is not woth owning. Sorry to the lovers of FDM. This is just my personal opinion.

    I wore FDM yesterday. It is nice smell but I dont think I would ever want to smell like that or have anyone close to me smell like that. Now to answer your question:

    Sillage: Le Male > Fleur De Male
    Longevity: Fleur De Male > Le Male
    Compliments: I didnt get any but one lady in her 40s said that Le Male is most sexy fragrance in the world..
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    If you want sillage, longevity and compliments, Le Male is your man.

    I prefer Fleur du Male though for its uniqueness.

    I do agree that FDM is more unique, I get that. But FDM is kind of pissy . =(

    I like both.

    I got better longevity and sillage with Fleur du Male, but Le Male have a better smell to my tastes, even if Fleur du Male is more unique.

    The orange blossom in Fleur du Male is set in size-72 font, but my recollection is that Le Male is more tenacious at the tail end. Both are longevity and sillage monsters, and excellent works of perfumery, to boot.

    That said, I would be absolutely delighted if I never smelled either of these in public again.

    Of the two I would say Fleur Du Male. Given a broader range of options I probably wouldn't choose either...

    I would never own Le Male because I don't like it. I would never own Fleur du Male because I would feel uncomfortable, I find it on the feminine side. But as a scent, FdM is much more unique and interesting.

    Have owned Le Male and just recently bought FDM.

    If you want to smell like half the population, go for Le Male >> which is the more safer option.

    If you want something which still has remnants of the Le Male DNA but is more complex, loud, brash, unique, yet utterly amazing, the obvious choice is FDM - truly love at first sniff.

    Le Male is too commonplace and I no longer wear it, however it is a good fragrance with excellent longevity and sillage. I just got tired of smelling it on everybody and it was getting ridiculous. Perhaps it was the only fragrance in their collection. Anyways, I consider Fleur du Male a masterpiece with its overdose of orange blossom and I have grown to love it and I will never be without it. The overripe undertone of indolic orange blossom and hay-coconut-like sweetness of tonka bean/coumarin is wonderful.
