    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.

    From all that you listed, Dior Homme Sport is my top choice. And Terry Dee is the close second.

    None of them are the 'best.' It all comes down to what you like and where you'd wear it. My choice would be Gucci Pour Homme II... but you're not me, so your taste may differ.

    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.

    I went with New West.

    TdH would have been my second choice, had the option existed.

    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
    TdH
    GPH2

    and with summer on the doorstep, well, Dior Homme Sport really shines in the summer.

    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

    TDH in all aspects seems better to me, considering the juice quality, projection, sillage, longevity, the scent itself, compliments and ...!
    My most favorite scents that I can't be without:
    Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
    Dior Homme Intense
    Fahrenheit

    The first 4 in your poll are all excellent and should find their way into your collection - along with GPHII.

    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.
