    Default Guerlain Homme Intense Vs. French Lover

    Which one do you like more, Guerlain Homme Intense or Frederic Malle's French Lover?

    Both are fresh, quite greenish, versatile and sophisticated scents. Although there are clear differences between them, I find them to be in the same boat. Which one you prefer?

    GHI for now. After the initial 10-20 mins, it's divine.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I wouldn't describe either as "chocolate gourmand". I think you may be confusing Guerlain Homme Intense with L'instant Extreme.

    French Lover over Guerlain Homme Intense (might be interesting if French Lover is pitted against the vintage Guerlain's - I think Guerlain might get polled more in such a case...)

    French lover, but I don't really see them as similar/comparable.

    French Lover.
    It excels each note appropriately.

    I went with GHI. These 2 seem nothing alike IMO, and see no reason why you wouldn't add both to
    your collection if you like them both. I own GHI, and plan on adding Bois d'Orage (French Lover to those outside the US) to my collection very soon.

    Thank you all for your opinions! Quite equal I would say. I guess it depends more about personal taste and personal experiences which one you like more.

    Some another opinions or way to see Guerlain Homme Intense and French Lover/Bois D'orage?
