    That "cosmetic" "lipstick" essence you get from DHI is AWESOME. I smell it hugely in Shalimar parfum Initial too. I cannot get enough it. It makes about as much sense as saying that a drink can be really "dry". But in it's own way DHI is really DRY in the most spectacular way. MUCH LOVE...(Now only if I can find a bottle for a steal of a deal!!)

    DHI by a mile and a half. DH revolutionized men's fragrances but LIDGE is just meh, remove the Guerlain name and you will pick Animale animale over it.

    LIDGE has a great dry down. But DHI is good from beginning to end!

    I love both but LIDGE is all I want to wear right now so my obvious choice is Guerlain.

    LIDGE for me by a long way. I've been trying to like DHI for a year now but just couldn't get past the make-up note. In fact i've just swapped it away and can definitely say I won't be re-purchasing.
    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    But LIDGE isn't a strong patchouli fragrance

    LIDGE for me. I thought I would love DHI, but didn't measure up to the hype. I would still like to try the vintage.

    I think they are both amazing compositions ... but both challenging in their own ways.

    With DHI, some people find it "leans a little more feminine", but for me that's the understatement of the year. It doesn't lean anywhere, it's feminine. The opening is practically grandma's house. Then it settles down into an amazingly beautiful & delicious, still feminine drydown. As much as I enjoy the smell, style-wise it doesn't fit me, and a couple of women have told me exactly the same thing.

    I find LIDGE just plain awesome, but it is definitely challenging to non-perfume people, it's hit-or-miss on whether the people around me like it.

    I think that LIDGE is more multidimensional
