    Default Heritage (vintage) vs. Patou Pour Homme vs. Dunhill Blend 30

    What are you thoughts about these? Which one do you prefer (and why)? I'm considering to buy one of these (cost too much for my budget to buy all these).
    I've done a lot of reading of reviews and i understand these are a bit similar fragrances.

    I know, and own a small dose of vintage Guerlain Heritage only, the two other i have not had chance to sample (yet).

    I appreciate your opinions.... Thanks!

    I've never smelled the Dunhill, but I have the other two (Heritage in EDP). Heritage is great, but I prefer the Patou.

    If you can get ahold of a bottle of Patou PH that hasn't turned that would be the way to go.

    Haven't tried the Dunhill but Heritage is an oriental with that cedar, patchouli, and amber/vanilla base, so if you don't like that base (I don't), it's one to avoid. PPH is not an oriental, and some consider it a chypre. I don't think the chypre element is strong enough, so I think of it as a complex blend. The "wow factor" for PPH is how well it is blended, the note separation, etc., in other words, things that most people can't fully appreciate (and some "youngsters" may view as "old" and "musty").

    Ditto for me. Heritage is positively wonderful but just doesn't work as an everyday scent!

    I prefer, in order:
    Dunhill Blend 30
    PPH
    Heritage

    Now, all three are distinctly different. Blend 30 is very green, spicy, aromatic, with and incredible woody base. PPH is incredibly an incredibly smooth woody leather, amazing. Heritage, especially vintage EDP, is amazing cedar and tonka. In terms of cost, PPH>Blend>>Heritage.

    I disagree. I think most people "can fully appreciate". Patou pour Homme doesn't require a technically hypertrained nose to catch its "wow factor". Anyone who is open for an olfactory journey would probably enjoy it. It's like listening to Bach: although it may help a lot, you surely don't need to study harmony and counterpoint to appreciate its greatness.

    Whether it's an oriental or not, that's arguable.

    I don't like Heritage, LOVE Patou PH and respect Blend 33 although it's not for me.
