    Default Prada Amber or Dior Homme? Cant decide

    I just tested both of these. I loved both. for some reason I (and my wife) like powdery scents. I only have money for 1. which one do you guys like better? I want something I can wear somewhat daily and i work in a office (if that matters). You guys seem alot more experienced than me so i trust your input.

    Prada Amber is more versatile, spring, daily scent whilst Dior Homme is more evening scent for all year except summer.

    I would go with Prada Amber
    Dior Homme is not my cup of tea due to that lipstick note

    Dior Homme. Prada Amber is nice and I might pick it up someday but Dior Homme is just great.

    Prada Amber is like a wispy Spring breeze. Perfect.

    Prada is more versatile/easier to wear. I'd go with that.

    Only you can answer this question, grasshopper. Go with what your gut tells you, and if you find yourself longing for the other, pick it up the next time your budget allows.

    That said, given the choice I'd go with Dior Homme as well. Prada Amber has its place, but I can't think of a designer men's scent from the past five years I've been more impressed with than Dior Homme.

    If I had to, I would choos Prada Amber. That said, I own both of them. However, I enjoy the very clean and fresh smell of Prada over the sometimes lipstick-y feel of the Dior Homme. Both are nice, though.

    +1 on this. I only like the Dior Homme Cologne flanker (less lipstick) so my vote would go to Prada's.

    Dior's probably more interesting but potentially offensive to some and less versatile. I think the Prada's never out of place no matter the situation. The Dior might get you some raised eyebrows.
    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 like and own both. But if I had to pick only one I would choose Prada Amber pour Homme. Even Dior seems to be more interesting but Prada is by far more versatile, it's good all year round even in very hot summer!*
    Just my opinion!

    Dior Homme, hands down.

    +1 dior homme Intense i would recommend the intense version because it is warmer and richer.

    prada amber ph, although fresh, still lacks something -maybe longevity problem-which could be misinterpreted as "versatile".

    Both lovely. You can't go wrong with either of them to be honest. I'd also check out the new intense version of Prada Amber before you make a purchase!

    ok so I think im going with the Dior Homme. The Prada is a nice clean scent but way too soapy for me. Can seem to locate the Intense version of either of these
