    Question Comme De Garcons 2 Man < OR > Gucci Pour Homme I

    Heya,

    Given a small difference in price between CDG 2 Man or Gucci Pour Homme I, which is the better (objectively) fragrance for the same price? I haven't had the opportunity to smell CDG, but I love all the stages of Gucci Pour Homme (including the "pencil shaving" note) and was told CDG2M was a good replacement. Could anyone recommend a pick or tell me how vastly different they are to one another?

    Sincerely, Adnan

    I like what CDG does, I own Hinoki. I really really wanted to like 2 Man, but I sampled it a few times and I was disappointed. Not purchase worthy at all. I'd have to recommend Gucci Pour Homme I.

    Are they around the same quality then? I don't know how CDG smells but it's easier to purchase...

    I'd go with CdG Man 2 because Gucci PH I is very moody when it comes to longevity and projection. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's shy, at least in my case.

    Pros: both pretty much indentical with minor differences. The Gucci comes in a spectacular, grand, heavy chunky bottle.

    Cons:
    Comme De Garcons 2 Man : bottle lies flat on the shelf like a flat fish
    Gucci pour homme: deleted - but still obtainable

    I own both. I like both. I've gone through a couple bottles of the Gucci. But when it runs out I won't replace it. They are really similar; if you have one, I don't think you need both, at least in my opinion. But...Cdg 2man is in my opinion better because: it has surpassing longevity spray for spray, surpassing projection spray for spray, CdG 2man's smoke is of high quality and CdG 2man's candlewax note gives it a more interesting dimension. +1 CdG

    I voted 2Man as well. They're both very good, but I get more unusual notes from the 2Man, like candlewax and mahogany, whereas GpH uses more traditional perfume notes to very good effect. So if you're looking for something a little more unique and unusual, it's gotta be the CDG.

    CDG2Man hands down. I quite like the Gucci as well but sometimes I find its strongly synthetic woody-ambery base a bit annoying...

    I'm interested to try new and more unique fragrances, and the iris in CDG2 is kind of intriguing to me, I just have no idea what the main differences are. Is it\does it smell like a niche fragrance or more on the designer side? Maybe compared to Chanel or Guerlain?

    CDG 2 Man, I love both fragrances, but GPH I lacks the longevity and sillage of CDG 2 Man

    For me, Gucci Pour Homme. It's richer, more complex, and has more natural elements in the mix. Not to mention it seems to last longer on me than the CdG. Comme des Garcons 2 Man shares a similar frankincense note to the one in the first part of GpH's development, so I understand why everyone compares them, but for me the overall experience of the two fragrances is quite different. GpH feels warm, suave, and later, sweet and comfortable. CdG 2 Man is more remote, more shamelessly synthetic, and its lemon-waxiness is just odd to me. The fragrance can feel a bit keening. I don't dislike it, but I admire it from afar more than I want to cuddle up to it. That may change with time, of course, but for me, CdG 2 Man is an art project, and GpH is a warm friend.

    Comme des Garcon. In addition to what's already said, it can be super versatile, makes a great every day scent as well as one for occasions, depending on the wearer's personality and taste. It's also great for layering, which makes it fun to wear in my opinion.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either one. I prefer Gucci PH I, because it works better with my skin chemistry. To me CdG 2 Man has a better opening but it loses its momentum more quickly. Gucci lasts for me.

    If money isn't a concern, I'd certainly go with CdG2M.
