    I really like Rive Gauche - in fact I am re-ordering a bottle this week. Think it's a great scent for the office. Never tried Azzaro although I've seen it in the bargain bins.

    Rive Gauche hands down. I think it's probably the safer/better bet. Are you going to blind buy one of these or will you have an opportunity to test them?

    RG is smoother, Azzaro is sharper, so it depends on what you're after. Both are great.

    I'm going for a blind buy, so I'd really like to know if you guys actually prefer one over the other. I'm 19 years old and would like a scent where people kind of took me seriously. I've been told I look old for my age and I generally associate myself with 22-24 year olds, so maybe that could give you guys a bit of an idea of what I'm looking for.

    Honestly, I like them both equally. They are both in the same ballpark, but are different enough to justify having both. I've noticed that Rive Gauche is getting a bit harder to find these days, so if forced to choose, I'd say go with Rive Gauche first and pick up the Azzaro later. It shows no signs of going away anytime soon.

    Love them both and own both but of the two my preferred is Azzaro Pour Homme.

    Like both but would choose Rive Gauche as it has better longevity, I only get four hours from Azzaro.

    I would choose both, both being genuinely manly in an elegant way and both quite affordable without being generic

    Rive Gauche. There's a softer, somewhat lush quality to RG that I prefer to the drier, dustier Azzaro PH. Not to mention the star anise in the opening....I remember the first time I tried it I thought it was the strangest smell, and it stuck with me till I got bottle a year later.

    But I like both quite a bit!

    My opinion is this: buy both of them.

    I'd take the APH drydown but the RGPH opening. If you don't like patchouli avoid RGPH. Neither one is especially dynamic or complex, so neither is a favorite. Instead, I'd go for something like Montana Parfum d'Homme.
