    Default DHI vs LIDGE

    I finally own two of the most coveted fragrances in the fragrance community and they definitely live up to the hype. With that being said I think LIDGE edges out DHI because it has more depth and sensuality. What are your thoughts?

    Another one on the agree wagon. DHI is sexy smooth cocoa and vanille but L'Instant extreme has better ingredients and depth and is just more satisfying. Love both but DHI loses ground overtime and the vanille/cocoa combo begins to feel slightly watered down and thined out. Where L'Instant extreme still has the glorious rich vanille/cocoa combo going on to the bitter end.

    The good thing about LIDGE is that it's readily available at some Guerlain boutiques!

    Which boutiques do you mean? I've been searching recently and found that Toronto is the only place in N. America that carries it. Vegas? Doesn't carry it. NY? Doesn't carry it. Toronto? Haven't received any from Paris in close to a month.

    Love both, but I'd say for me Dior Homme Intense is the vastly more sensual one. LIDGE is fantastic, but of the two I'd say Dior is the one with the more romantic quality (or at least more in your face about that particular quality). I get more elegant and stoic, than sexy from LIDGE. Kinda the opposite for DHI.

    I like both. Also, I like the original Dior Homme (vintage) even more than these two.

    While I do love DHI, haven't tried LIDGE, I can't imagine they possibly live up to the obscene amount of hype they get. DHI to me is a better than average scent. I love it enough to keep, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    I own both as well as the original versions and I'll go for LIDGE b/c it's cocoa note smells almost edible. DHI is also very nice though. Two very classy fragrances for sure.

    LIDGE only gets 4 hours for you ??? , I get 8 to 12 and in the winter the scent gets caught on my jacket and lasts for days, projection wise I've had people smell it on me from up to 8 feet away and the sillage is pretty good too considering I'll leave a spot/room and someone can walk into it 10 seconds later and smell it.

    This is all with just around 3 sprays.

    Obsessed with LIDGE and have been thinking about testing out DHI but skeptical about it as I have vintage DH and from what I've read the reformulation DHI is very simliar to vintage DH.

    I just had my order get cancelled from Fragrancenet! Now, I don't know what to think? Both of these fragrances are near impossible to get so I am not going to let my frustration get the best of me. I really liked the drydown of DHI but disliked the opening. I thought the opening on LIDGE was ok but it just didn't project. I am not going to chase either of these fragrances. There are far better scents to become obsessed with. Especially, since with DHI there are 4,000 different reformulations and everyone is giving a far different opinion. To me it is not worth the effort.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood

    I have vintage DH and the new DHI and they are not even close. Vintage DH has a big dose of iris, whereas the new DHI has very little and goes straight to cocoa. I prefer the new DHI to vintage DH.

    Do you have vintage DHI or have tried it? What are your comparisons of vintage to new DHI?

    I've never tried the vintage DHI, just Dior Homme. My DHI is from April 2011, which some people claim smells the same as the vintage. I will say that it is very light on the iris note in the beginning and quickly turns to a smooth cocoa drydown. Longevity is good too.

    Good thing you mentioned. I will send along the bottle, that you bought from me, an (my only one left) official vintage DHI sample.

    LIDGE is a patchouli bomb so not a big fan but it's 1000000 X better than Dior's horrible, offensive, synthetic mess.

    Easy verdict. LIDGE is a decent wearable masculine and i can understand it's popularity.

    DHI is an embarrasment to the house of Dior. Shame on them and their tacky viral marketing tactics.

    I don't know what you have been smeling but DHI is one of the best designer fragrances out there.
