    Default Gucci Pour Homme II or Allure Edition Blanche

    Hey guys,

    I am in need of a new spring/summer fragrance.

    I first wanted to purchase Allure Edition Blanche. Nevertheless, I found a 100ml bottle of Gucci Pour Homme II for a cheaper price. The problem is that I have never sampled the Gucci and the store that carries it does not have a tester..

    Which fragrance whould you pick and why?

    Gucci Pour Homme II as it is unequal and you will be hard pressed to find it's like elsewhere.

    I definitely prefer Gucci pour Homme II of those choices. It is an extremely well-balanced composition, while I don't care much at all for Allure Blanche.

    Edition Blanche. The creamy lemon is great in spring & summer. GPH II is more for a romantic evening. Its awful projection doesnt let anyone smell it on you unless he/she comes extremely close to the point where you applied the fragrance.

    You can't go wrong with either and I really, really like Edition Blanche, but GPHII is simply unmatched!!!

    GPH II by all means.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    Hmm, now I am thinking of buying both... Although I will buy a new bottle of Aventus aswell..
    Saw GPHII for a very cheap price last year. Now I am killing myself for not buying it than

    Guess I have to sell more of my collection on the marketplace

    I own and enjoy both. That being said I prefer Edition Blanche and its performance is far superior to GPH II.

    As for the subject matter, I prefer Gucci Pour Homme II over Edition Blanche.

    Edition Blanche: too much creamy lemon for me, I don't want to smell like a lemon pie
    GPH II, well crafted, balanced, refined, but very poor longevity and diffusion on my skin.
    So...

    Surprisingly I have a soft spot for AEB -- pretty well put together imo -- preferable for warmer seasons also.

    Allure edition blanche for summer/spring, GPII for spring/autumn

    Not only do I own both, but I own backup bottle of both (just in case!). That is how much I love both of these.

    I voted for the Chanel, simply because you said you were looking for a spring / summer fragrance. I think EB is better for warmer weather. GPHII would probably have been my choice if you said Fall / Winter.

    I would never want to be without either myself.

    Edition Blanche is not a flanker - except in name. There is very little in common between Allure and the other Chanel fragrances using the Allure name.

    GPHII I love, so I am partial and biased... Though, I'd say grab both if you can! You wouldn't be disappointed with yourself

    Edition Blanche. I had GPH II but there was a note there that after a few wearings I couldn't stand, had to return it.

    Both are good and liked by me, but if I would choose only one, it would be GPHII.

    Yeah -- it's weird. I find all the other 'Allures' quite repulsive but AEB sort of bucks the trend as a 'stand-alone'.

    Gucci PH II disappointed me quite a bit, I sold my 100 ml bottle after 5-6 wearings.

    i got 4-6 hours longevity from it, and that was - to my surprise - good, since I disliked the ginger note I got from it, almost a bit similar to the ginger note I got from YSL L'Homme Libre, a frag I also sold ASAP.

    Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche is a master piece - and if it were bottled as a niche frag, far more basenoters would rave about it.....trust me

    I get perfectly fine projection and longevity from GPH II.

    The 'aura' that surrounds you wearing Allure Blanche is unmatched. Great elegant scent for spring/summer. On the other hand, if it wasn't the low projection of GPHII, I would certain recommend both.
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day"..... I don't want to miss that

    Hmm, so many contradicting opinions!
    I'll just get both, and in worst case sell the GPHII.

    I love that my Gooch seems to get so much love on the boards, but kinda low key. lol I went on an interview today, and applied one light spray of it to my neck. That was about 7 hours ago. I still don't get how some get poor longevity from this one. This one consistently last me all day (though I don't wear it much). For Spring, this is a hard fragrance to beat. Summer time, I may reach for a more citrusy scent, but this is great for Spring!
