    Default Which is more of a powerhouse: LAPIDUS POUR HOMME or BALENCIAGA POUR HOMME?

    Both of these frags are so similar, both are brutal powerhouses, but which one wins the prize as the bigger powerhouse?

    Me, I think they're equal.

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    Lapidus pour Homme is slightly stronger, IMO, and longer lasting. The strong patchouli, musk and moss in the base strengthen its case a lot. Balenciaga pour Homme is brutal on application and the orange and lime top notes make it much brighter. "Volume" wise, BpH mellows down earlier than LpH.

    I voted equal. I would love to see a tester bottle of one of these on a mall department store counter in stark contrast to the current flavors of the month.

    What would the reactions be on unsuspecting samplers? Would they dig it.......or run for their lives?

    I have to say that Lapidus has an edge on Balenciaga

    I haven't tried Balenciaga, but if it is anywhere NEAR Lapidus I need to crawl through broken glass to get to it. Lapidus is a blowtorch; I still have post traumatic stress from my first wearing. Lest that sounds like a complaint, it's not. I dig Lapidus in a big way and haven't tried anything like it, so far.

    Neither have I.

    Swanky, for what you just said I gather that you have not tried neither Quorum, nor One Man Show, nor Sung Homme yet, because either of those would leave Lapidus eating dust.

    To me BPH hands down. Its dirtied honey edge (or whatever it is) out trumps the weighty pineapple of LPH. I like em both just the same and to think that BPH used to be available and could be had as easy as LPH now... well that just makes me sick.

    Balenciaga pour Homme gets my vote as well.

    Wearing BpH as i type. Confirms that LpH is stronger, especially 3+ hours into wearing.

    I've never smelled Balenciaga but Lapidus Pour Homme has got to be one of the best budget buys and is strong as hell.
