    A bit of tough love? harsh but true. The threads that puzzle me are the ones that go "I've just bought fragrance xxxxx, is it any good?" I can't work out whether they want some reassurance for their buyers remorse or what.

    If it's any consolation, these questions pop up on all forums, just substitute the name of whatever product where it depends on personal circumstances and preferences, be it speakers, TVs or perfumes.

    Btw, The One Gentleman has great longevity. I easily get 12 hours out of it - and it's still detectable by others, too. 30 minute longevity? You're anosmic to a major component of the scent, or your nose is broken. Those are the only explanations for such.
    Definitely a great scent. I don't get 30 minute longevity, but I sure as heck have yet to smell it after 2 hours. My skin is just like that though..

    i think TDH is better in every category except price

    more unique,lasts and projects better, but if the base bothers you while you enjoy everything about the one gentlemen

    then maybe the one gentlemen is more for you

    I would like to retract my above statement about TDH. I was at Sephora yesterday and noticed they had the EDP version in stock so I asked for them to make me a sample. I put two spritzes on each wrist this morning and I must say it's wonderful. It kind of reminds me of a more refined, longer-lasting version of Pamplemousse Rose.

    Agree. I know my tastes are nothing like many here and I'm not a real pro at this stuff...still..after 4 years here. But I like it here and I like giving my random, misguided thoughts

    Although I do like The One, not impressed with it's longevity. Terre D'Hermes is one of my go to frags. ISO E Super is 55%, which makes for an interesting orange peel and woody note ride.

    It's an official draw...as per the official score...by my skin chemistry and my Olfactory registries...

    I like D&G The One Gentleman, but I prefer Terre d'Hermes.

    I wonder if everyone complaining about The One Gentleman's longevity are talking about The One original (NOT the Gentleman?) The One Gentleman lasts on me all day. I pick up a strong bubble gum kind of smell off of it, which I really like when I first spray it on, but usually tire of it before it wears off. Big fan of Terre D'Hermes, though I've never bought a bottle (sampled only.)
