    Default D and G The One Gentleman vs Terre d'Hermes

    Just looking for thoughts and opinions on these two. Would you say they are even comparable scents?

    I like them both. The D&G doesn't last all that long on me, but I do love the smell, all the way from top to bottom. TdH is class in a bottle I think, although I do think it's basenote is not it's best aspect.

    Any thoughts on a comparison? Yes - I'm looking to buy one of them.

    Thanks in advance

    They are not comparable to my nose. D&G The One Gentleman is a spicy-sweet fragrance, while Terre d'Hermes is woody-earthy. As for longevity and projection, Hermes just simply trumps D&G.

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

    you're joking, right? They're not remotely similar in style or the way they smell. It all comes to that which one you like more. D&G The One Gentleman is stronger than the original if you have longevity issue. TdH is a player for itself and not as versatile as D&G. TdH is more conservative and "serious". So, you buy the one you like, not the one everyone here thinks you should buy. For instance, Mona Lisa is a famous paintwork, but I'd never put that on my wall. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say here.

    Terre D'Hermes is so much better.

    Even the weaker, current version of Td'H.

    The One is nice, don't get me wrong, the half hour longevity is just unacceptable.

    D&G The One Gentleman smells better. Terre D'Hermes is much stronger and longer lasting, but the last time I wore it I was told I smell like the armpit of a god.

    Not comparable in any way, IMO. I only love one of the two, and that would be Terre d'Hermes for sure.

    If that's not a typo, then that comment would be what we call a back-handed compliment.

    If it was a typo - and should read DOG rather than GOD - then it's a bit of an insult.

    For what it's worth, I have and like TdH - and get well complimented on it...!!

    The One gives me a lot of longevity, and I smell it off other people quite strongly. It's easier to wear than Terre, but the latter has the advantage of the turbo-booster effect of about 55% Iso E Super (http://www.basenotes.net/threads/259...r-s-Apprentice).

    Anyway, the two fragrances have nothing to do with each other. It won't hurt to buy both...

    TDH falls in a superior class of scents I think than D&G Gentleman.

    Own samples of both. I like the smell of The One Gentlemen, a lot. However, if price were not a factor, I would take TdH over The One Gentlemen any day. It's rather unique and I can see myself reaching for it very frequently.
    I've honestly given up on D&G The One fragrances. I loved the original The One, and was glad that I got fairly nice longevity. The last few times that I've tried it, it's lasted well under an hour. Every other D&G The One fragrance yields the same results.

    Gentleman is actually repulsive to my nose, something it it literary makes me nauseating, yet I adore the scent of the original The One. Terre D'Hermes is gold juice, god damn that's good stuff (love how long it lasts too, you don't find often a fragrance that gives off orange vibe that has this much balls)

    I agree, however, I dislike both scents and absolutely love my EDP bottle of voyage d'hermes. I was told I would like the TDH and tried it on my skin once. I had read nothing but good things, but I was very disappointed. I didn't even have them make me a sample of it to take home.

    Are you kidding? Wearing The One is like wearing nothing at all. !5 minutes later, The One vanishes without a trace. I have never known such a fleeting fragrance. TDH is miles ahead of The One.

    The One Gentleman > TdH, imo. TdH is more unique, but more synthetic (all that iso e super!)

    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.

    I am definitely in the group that thinks TOG is an abomination. It was vile to my nose and even though I tried, I could not grow to like it at all and was thankful for it's short life span both on my skin and in my store.

    TdH, on the other hand, is one of my all time fave frags. I do not think they share anything in common at all.

    As always, it doesn't matter what I (or any of us think) - smell them both and get the one you prefer.

    The community would be a lot richer if people didn't need to validate their choices all the time; there'd be a lot more diversity and a lot less group think.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.)
