    Default Only the Brave (Diesel) or l'Homme (YSL)

    Considering I don't own a lot of fragrances, and considering I'm young (mid-19) and I have a sweet personnality (I don't know if it makes any sense in english), which one should I buy? And why?

    By the way, what is their longevity? I've tried a sample of both, but I can't figure how long they hold.

    Thank you.

    I dont doubt that youd gain more respect from knowledgable people into scents for wearing a YSL, but I can imagine Diesel is probally loved and enjoyed by many young fans, and if you enjoy that, then theres no rules to suggest that you shouldnt.

    Both are good, I think L'Homme is better quality. As DMA put it, Diesel is probably much more enjoyed by a younger fan base.

    Being 19, I'd go w diesel, l'homme is more sophisticate and for some reason, l'homme doesn't last as long as diesel for me. Now la nuit is something else

    Can you specify the kind of usage you want from it?

    For example, is it to go out at night or for school ?
    winter: Body Kouros
    summer : guerlain vetiver

    I agree that L'Homme's projection and longevity could be a whole lot better. However, it really does smell good and when compared to many expensive niche fragrances which have poor projection/longevity, l'homme is a relatively good purchase.

    For me? l'Homme

    For you? Probably the Diesel.
