Where are your choices?
I am trying to decide between these and having a tough time.
Where are your choices?
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
I also forgot to add, Gucci Pour Homme II. Which I am sure would be a game changer.
All are fresh, but in different ways. It depends a little on what you want. TdH is the smoothest, and perhps the most versatile. DH Sport is invigorating, and fully in the mold of modern masculines for jocks. New West is aquatic-oceanic, but without being too chemical or shrill as many modern aquatics are. In the end, I went for TdH, though if you are more of a jock type, as said, you may want to consider DHS.
Terre d'Hermes would be my first choice followed by either New West for Him or GpH II.

Thanks! I always value your opinion.
My recommendation: TDH, closely followed by Dior Homme Sport and Gucci PH II.
From all that you listed, Dior Homme Sport is my top choice. And Terry Dee is the close second.
Of the scents you listed, GphII seems the most unique. AdG Essenza or Allure Homme Sport are probably the safest. Terre is probably the classiest, but I personally don't care for it. Dior Homme Sport is probably the best for hot weather.
Anybody have a sample of Martin Margiela Untitled or Untitled L'Eau? I'm dying to smell these and I've got lots of great niche samples to swap!

I went with New West.
TdH would have been my second choice, had the option existed.
i voted for allure extreme. gets compliments galore
Went with allure homme sport as Terre d'Hermes and Allure homme sport are the only ones out of this list that I have tried
I prefer TDH.
In honor of a fellow Basenoter who has seemed to find the answer to most all questions put forth here on our forum....
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
Terre De Hermes
1. Dior Homme Sport
2. Acqua di Gio Essenza
I would choose ADG Essenza out of these (followed by Dior Homme Sport). I don't care for Terre d'Hermes at all. (be forewarned, it's much more mature smelling than most of your other choices. If I were to wear it, it certainly wouldn't be a summer choice for me).
You can't lose with:
Dior Homme Sport
and with summer on the doorstep, well, Dior Homme Sport really shines in the summer.
2) New West for Him
Order some small decants and try living with each of them for a while so that you can work out which you like best.
Or get GPH II or TDH
New West, IMO.

TDH in all aspects seems better to me, considering the juice quality, projection, sillage, longevity, the scent itself, compliments and ...!
My all time favorite:
The first 4 in your poll are all excellent and should find their way into your collection - along with GPHII.
New West for Him
2- adg essenza
Seasonal favorites :
Winter : The Dreamer & Burberry London
Spring-Autumn : Bvlgari Pour Homme & Prada Man
Summer : Bvlgari Aqva & Aqua Fahrenheit
All-Rounders : Terre D'Hermes & Bleu de Chanel
1st vote would be for GPHII & 2nd for TDH
GPH II, second choice is the ever unpopular Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme.
Dior Homme Sport
New west for him
Have you smelled all of them? Do not blind buy TdH.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Thanks Again! You guys/gals are awesome with your suggestions and reasoning with these scents.
I just ordered a 3.4 of Dior Homme Sport and a 3.4 of New West...and a .42 mini of Terre De Hermes and a sample of Creed Aventus, and an atomizer. It was a tough decision, but next round I am going to get Gucci Pour Homme II.
