Thread: PH for LIDGE?

  1. #1

    Default PH for LIDGE?

    Someone offered to swap a LIDGE for one of my many backups of PH that I was looking to get rid of. I love gourmands and am highly considering the swap since I am trading one limited edition for another.

    I smelled Lolita Lempicka's Au Masculin and didnt really enjoy the licorice note. Will I be put off by LIDGE since I have heard it kind of smells like licorice too?

    I think you'll be fine. I'd do it.

    no licorice from lidge for me. just nice a nice citrus cocoa combination. sort of like la nuit with a bunch of cocoa. But i say you can sell pure havane for a higher price then just buy lidge for like 90

    I dont get licorice either. However, I do prefer PH alot more over LIDGE and PH certainly has a higher market value than LIDGE.

    I don't get any licorice from LIDGE, and it doesn't bear any resemblance to LLAM so I wouldn't worry on that count. It is more a citrus/dusty cocoa scent, so if that sounds like something up your alley you should consider the trade.

    ETA: I much prefer PH to LIDGE, so your mileage may vary on how much you end up liking it. And as others have said, the "street" value of PH is higher, so it may be financially prudent to just buy LIDGE and use PH as trade bait for other items.

    No licorice at all. Never heard anyone getting that vibe from LIDGE.

    A great trade indeed. LIDGE has very little citrus and a whole lotta cocoa. Very classy stuff.

    p.s.
    ZERO licorice in LIDGE for me.

    I think it's availability is limited due to it only being available in Europe, but I never heard plans for it to be discontinued.

    is PH pure havane? btw, LIDGE is not at all licorice..its truly gourmand stuff

    LIDGE is a masterpiece, so my vote is to do the swap. However, that PH (Pure Havane?) could land you a few hundred dollars in a couple years on ebay...

    PH is Pure Havane fellas.

    I'm not sure I'd do this swap honestly bro. You could fetch more $ for PH, buy a LIDGE, and have cash to spare. Or sell a PH, and buy a luxe fragrance. I've sold 3 Mugler Pures in the last month, and I've bought some expensive fragrances with the money!

    LIDGE is definitely a different ballgame than PH. The top notes smell kinda 90's and dated to me. It's not as gourmand is something like PH. I think it's a try before you buy.

    people are right about higher economic value of PH..in fact i have a sealed bottle of LIDGE..in fact I have three (two sealed ones) and if you want, i would swap sealed LIDGE with your PH any day because i dont have PH

    PH is like $160 on Amazon and even more on eBay. I guess you could sell it on eBay for that much and buy LIDGE with $50 to spare.

    How much spare PH do you have? Considering that PH will likely never be made again and LIDGE is still in production, I'd hang on to your PH stock. Take Pure Coffee for example. Yeah it was "re-released" but it was 5 year old stock and not new production juice. If PH gets re-released, it will just be the 2011 stuff anyway.

    I wouldn't do it. You can sell the PH for a conservative price of $150 easily and can buy LIDGE. There are multiple ways of acquiring it, the easiest is calling the Guerlain boutique in Canada. I've read from several credible source that they will ship it to the US for about $75 shipped. You can buy 2 LIDGE for the price of one PH . Exclusivity and versatility goes to PH hands down.

    Top 5 in rotation: Dior Homme, Pure Malt, Egoiste, Gucci Envy, Platinum Egoiste

    Happiness is perfume, you can't pour it on somebody else without getting a few drops on yourself.

    PH is worth about $10-15 more, but then you have to factor in the hassle of selling it. I say go for it.
