    Own both, love both.

    L'Homme for the versatility.

    If I could only choose one YSL, I'd go with M7. Prefer Rive Gauche to L'Homme (my least favorite YSL fragrance)
    My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat Nį 2

    Rive Gauche is the best fragrance from Yves Saint Laurent, together with Kouros.

    Actually Rive Gauche is one of the best fragrances of all time.

    L'homme is a very nice subtle scent that I would definitely recommend

    L'Homme by a landslide. I own both.

    Out of those two, Rive Gauche. So much better.

    YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme is an excellent fragrance worth owning. YSL L'Homme is crap in a bottle.

    L'Homme is one of my favorite fragrances and one that I'd always feel comfortable recommending to anyone. However, I do think that these two fragrances are targeted at two different demographics. L'Homme is fresher and was probably designed for those under 30, while Rive Gauche is a sophisticated scent that might be more suitable for those over 30.

    Rive Gauche is the better frag imho, but l'Homme is probably more versatile and neighbor friendly. Both are great!

    They're both OK. Just go for whichever you prefer. It's worth having both really.

    Kouros is far better than both IMO.

    Rive Gauche pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent - Initially, one is treated to a brisk melange of bergamot, with its tart, citric dimension, rosemary, with its cooling, camphoraceous slant, and star anise, with its smoky licorice. This burst of freshness is fleeting, and the refreshing opening transitions rather quickly to the waiting middle. Here, in the herbal heart, a mixture of clean lavender imparts its soapiness, invigorating clove provides a slight smokiness, and crisp, geranium leaf bestows its lemony greeness. This barbershoppy concoction meanders to the awaiting base. A robust medley of earthy and musty patchouli, lemongrass-like greeness and clumped dirt from vetiver, as well as waxy and faintly smoky guiacwood commingle to present a sensual and somewhat dark drydown. This masculine composition has average projection, basically a skin-scent, and good longevity, 7-10 hours. Conjuring an illusion of shaving cream, this wonderfully original and unique scent should be had!

    Rive Gauche by 3 miles. I'm going to give my brother my L'Homme b/c I simply do not wear it. It's very nice, but Rive Gauche is a masterpiece. L'Homme is a flanker factory.
