    Be prepared for the BS/misleading recommendations for DH, i guarantee it. It's become a joke on Basenotes. Why waste your money on something that will make you smell like an old tramps handbag?

    In short, YSL is worth wearing. DH is not.

    Dior Homme is by mile more sophisticated, unique and worth owning. L'Homme is not bad but not groundbreaking like DH was.

    I like them both...both are on my Buy list (well...Dior Homme Intense is)...but DHI is higher up the list than L'Homme.

    L'homme smells great but doesn't last long for me. I'd consider YSL La Nuit and Dior Homme Intense instead. I own La Nuit, L'homme Libre, and L'homme and would put them in that order (best to worst).

    I do like like to inject a healthy dose of reality into the DHI threads, if it saves just one person money and disapointment then it's worth it. I detest the stuff, as did everyone around me when i foolishly wore it. The opening smells like a glue factory and the drydown is like a cheap talcum powder. DH is much the same. Horrid stuff.

    YSL La Nuit has been mentioned which is a great choice, i prefer the original YSL L'Homme and it's the one i'm wearing today. Be sure to check those two out

    Longevity aside, I like the scent of L'Homme better.

    DH, given the choices although I don't wear either. You should test and see which one pleases you most.
    DH would be more unique but L'Homme is easier to like (as demonstrated by its sheer popularity).

    It's a joke alright - it's not even close. Dior Homme FTW! But hey, it's your money and your nose.

    Either YSL L'Homme or the Intense flanker of Dior Homme.

    They are two completely different scents.
    DH may last longer, but I don't get jack for projection unless I spray 5+ times.
    L'H smells better to me, and projects better. Sure, it doesn't last as long, but that is why they made La Nuit.... to put on after.

    If you want to play it safe, YSL L'Homme. It is an excellent day fragrance and can be a signature scent. Dior Homme, is a bit more daring and with that comes added longevity thought the scent tends to stay close to your skin. The two are very good scents thought I favor DH more. If I could only have one of them? It would have to be Dior Homme.

    Why not try a classic like YSL L' homme concentrate. A great citrus with above average longevity and sillage.

    Assuming you meant YSL pour Homme Haute Concentration I fully concur (or even YSL pour Homme). These would be superior choices, IMO.

    I haven't tried DH (I own DHS 2012). However, I can tell you that L'Homme was so good, it was worth buying both the 40ml and the 100ml.

    Love them both, but DH has far more depth to it! Can't go wrong with either imo

    I have and enjoy both.

    YSL L'Homme is a safer fragrance. Use to be my signature fragrance.

    Dior Homme is sexy and more complex.

    Dior Homme, no question. L'Homme smells pleasant but as a scent is quite boring. Dior Homme smells wonderful and is sophisticated and interesting.

    Having said that, you need to try it out before you pull the trigger. The Iris is amazing but can be too much for some people.

    Got 'em both, dig 'em both, but I luv the Dior Homme. If you're considering those two, why not consider La Nuit and Dior Homme Intense as well?

    Absolutely agree with Shiny Beast. Get both and then purchase their flankers. You'll be covered for every season, day and night.

    Dior Homme for me. More versatile, more refined.

    Short answer: Dior Homme, but try before you buy.

    Long answer: L'Homme and La Nuit are both quality frags and they're both crowd pleasers. Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense are among my very favorite frags, but they're not for everybody. I own all four, have no regrets and will likely re-up the YSL's when they run dry and as for the Dior Homme line, I've got backups on both DH and DHI, thats how much I dig it. IMHO Dior Homme Sport is also worth a look. It was my surprise go-to frag this summer; I think it saw more action than anything else.

    Let us know how it plays out for you.
