    Default Van Cleef & Arpels pour homme VS Chanel Antaeus.

    Which of these classical manly-male powerful 80-ies fragrance do you prefer? I`m thinking about the latest formulations ;-)

    VC&A ph would be my choice as I do not enjoy the recent Antaeus. It lacks the bold richness and depth of the vintage.

    I like both and already own Antaeus, but Van Cleef and Arpels pour Homme, reformulation or no reformulation does in my opinion go that extra mile in terms of complexity, creativity and diversity - not to invalidate Antaeus in any way, yet I do discover more surprising notes in V&A PH.

    VC&A pH (current) was a scrubber for me so Antaeus gets my vote.

    Like both, my partner wears both (my gift)... since you're asking for the current version, Antaeus got my vote.

    Two of my favourite scents; a earlier in year I would probably have said VCA, but have re-discovered a love for Antaeus (even in its maligned current formulation) which I would now rank superior.

    Voted for Antaeus. Due to the fact i smelled the worse (not latest) reformulation of VC&A PH, and didn't like it. But the latest formulation is better I guess (haven't tried yet), and now i've ordered a bottle of vintage, it may be that my mind will change. On the other hand Antaeus is hard to win in my book.
