    Default Daim Blond or Visa?

    Two fruity leathers (suedes). Which do you prefer? Which is the "better" fragrance? Piguet's Visa or Lutens' Daim Blond?

    I prefer Daim Blond but out of other fruity leather-suedes I prefer Feminite du Bois.

    Visa... But I really wouldn't have connected those two fragrances.

    I prefer Visa but don't really find it easy to compare with Daim Blond. To me, the patchouli note in Visa grounds the fruity-ness of it and makes the whole thing a lot more interesting. Also, I don't find it suede-y, but more of a plasticky leather like a patent leather handbag, whereas Daim Blond is like suede to me.

    But that's just my nose, which isn't so reliable, I think!

    I absolutely love Visa, and it's one of my top ten perfumes, I tried Daim Blond a few years ago and it did not impressed me at all.
    My husband always comment how good I smell when I wear visa.

    Visa hands down. Much more refined and balanced...

    Daim Blond on this one without a doubt. I recently picked this one up. After the top notes burn off (which are admittedly a bit too sweet and fruity for my taste), the base leaves a quite satisfying suede accord.

    The patchouli fruity combo of Visa just doesn't work for me.

    Both are good, but it depends on what you want. Visa is not very leathery, it is much fruitier and more intense-more in the tradition of, say, Angel than in that of leathers. Daim blond is more like smooth leather.

    Totally forgot about this thread. Now, months later, this seems a bit of an odd question. I think at the time I was trying to get a feel for some of the more subtle "leathery" fragrances and these were the only two I really had much experience with. I have since settled on buying neither, preferring Daim Blond, and respecting Visa. I have recommended Visa to several people as alternatives to Angel, with great success. Daim Blond, while heart-achingly beautiful, is far too sweet for my tastes and I find the apricot note borderline cloying. Having said that, I have really enjoyed the smell of Daim Blond on others. Overall, I'd have to give this to Daim Blond (by a narrow margin). On a related note, I did end up finding what I was hoping for from Visa and Daim Blond in Féminité du Bois.
