    Default Yo guys. Help me out here. 212 Men or Acqua Di Gio?

    Sell the AdG and buy something you like. I don't care much for either of the two options.

    I've never liked ADG much. 212 Men I've always thought a marvellous stand out scent.

    There's a little bit of sweetness, but not much at all. I'm not sure where it comes from. I know D&G The One is the sweeter of the two.

    There's a whole bunch of youtube reviews of 212, check those out. And like someone said, go to a sephora and get a sample of it and see if you like it.

    Another reason I prefer 212 is that it seems more dynamic. Green/citrus opening, spicy floral heart, and then a very enjoyable woodsy drydown. I love the drydown.

    Forget both. Take cash instead and buy some samples. Expand your horizons! I;m glad I did.

    the thing is, the deal is going down because he has a sephora gift card..and 212 is one of the things id want that is at sephora since i cant find it at any other places.

    I'm totally confused why there is mention le male here in the first place (in two bottles, no less) but that is besides the point.

    Also, the nail polish smell is a good indication of fragrance going toxic and you should take a note of that.

    All else being equal, I would choose adg of the two.

    If you already own Issey Miyake then I think you should try the 212 men.

    Lol..I just looked at who revived the thread. Looks like he took offense and wants to punch someone in the face 4 years after the fact.

    Well, the O.P. has probably not only decided which to buy but used it up by now

    The personal attacking post has been deleted as it's against the rules in case anyone else reads this thread & thinks we're all a bit confused here!
