    Default Bleu de Chanel vs Terre d'Hermes

    Two very popular powerhouses go head to head. Which do you prefer?

    P/S: It's up to you whether you want to consider the EDT or Parfum version of TDH for this poll.

    Both are cloying and synthetic to me but if I had to pick 1 it would be TDH

    Honestly, do not like either fragrance.

    I'd have to go with TdH in either form. Bleu just doesn't work very well on my skin.

    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I like both, and I have no issue on BdC's longevity and strength. But between the two, I feel TdH is the better frag overall -- it is more solid, more masculine, and more unique.

    I've only tried TdH Parfum...and while I agree that it is more unique than Bleu...I've learned that I grow tired of it if I wear it consecutively. I once wore TdH three straight days, and on the third day, I was bored with it. Tried it again a couple weeks later, and loved it again. I once wore Bleu every day for a week, and actually grew it like/appreciate it more with each passing day.

    Both are solid on me...I'll own both...but if I could only pick one, I'd go with Bleu.

    Wow! Never seen a comparison between #1 Dud and #2 Dud. Reverse it, and you still have two Duds.

    Gentlemen, with all the choices out there, who needs or wants, to settle for such mediocrity.

    I'd rather die without ever wearing scent again, before I wear one of these two.

    TdH. Probably the best designer scent out there IMO. Class, perfect for all occasions,weather and still different.

    Too funny. You could do a poll.
    (Sorry for the "thread pollution".)
    ...I actually don't know what to think of both...

    Absolutely agree. Love the EDT version.

    My go with TdH Parfum version did not go well as I felt it wore a bit too musky on my skin.

    That said, I wore TdH EDT the other day and I can see myself, others may differ, only enjoying TdH EDT in cooler months and preferably in the evening. It really is in many respects a modern powerhouse. My advice is one or two spritzes and go easy on the trigger. For an EDT it how powerful projection and longevity.

    It was difficult for me to fathom why Chanel did Bleu. For me it was a total mess of discordant notes trying to be too many things to too many people.

    Definitely TdH. As others have said, it works well for just about any occasion; combine the flexibility with the quality of the fragrance and you have a winner.

    Neither is a powerhouse frag, unless you are just talking in terms of popularity or something.
    I much prefer Bleu.

    Cannot tolerate the Iso E super note in TDH. Way too much of it. I'd go with the Bleu.

    One is a ho-hum generic.

    The other is a very good fragrance indeed.

    Teach, you make an interesting point as I have had the exact same experience. Bleu is strange in that way; it actually has many facets that unfold during the course of a week or so, some of which I find very interesting. I tend to like it more the more often I wear it.

    I still voted TdH because when I'm in the mood for it, it's absolutely perfect to me. But I'm a big fan of both.

    I wanted a straight up poll. If you dislike both equally, then simply don't vote.

    i just detest terre d'hermes. i think it's overrated.
