    Both are sweet in an easy-pleasing way, but DHI is far more natural smelling than Pure Havane, which just seems a bit much to me.

    Default Re: Pure Havane vs. Dior Homme Intense

    Both, if possible, I like both and would enjoy to own both. But Pure Havane comes off as even more uncommonly beautiful, creative and complex to me, though I'd be more likely to get DHI first, simply because it's easier to find in retail.

    Or Roger (DHI) versus Roddick (Havane). Haha.

    The current score is 14-2. I think that's actually pretty close to their HtH record.

    I don't even know how to vote in a contest like this. The two scents are so different. DHI is a smooth, silky scent that, to me, whispers elegance and sophistication. Pure Havane is an in-your-face strong scent that, while smelling good, is more appropriate for casual wear.

    I like them both, but since I enjoy Dior Homme over DHI recently and wear Pure Havane more often, I'll vote for PH.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Close call for me. I'll pick DHI though because I feel like other perfumes can satisfy my PH craving.

    Pure Havane is an awesome scent, but Dior Homme Intense is better.

    Very different fragrances IMO. Both are quite pleasing and well crafted fragrances deserving of praise.

    However, I selected Pure Havane, since it is much more wearable in public. DHI, while a nice fragrance comes off as far too feminine IMO.

    LOL.. while choosing my pick (DHI) I was imagining how big the difference would be. Game over.

    I have a real appreciation for Havane, but DHI has to win between the two. That iris just keeps me smelling myself.

    Although I love both and have backup bottles of both, I should say DHI is way better than Pure Havane.

    I love both and have backup bottles of both (the only other backup bottle I have is for Aventus).

    Which do I personally like better (ie. I keep sniffing myself)? DHI

    Which one is more wearable for everyday use? Pure Havane

    Which one would I wear out on a cool night? DHI

    Which one could I wear from day to night? Pure Havane

    They're both good. DHI has just more of a sexy, elegant vibe going on, but it has its limits when/where you can wear it. Pure Havane is more wearable everyday

    Both good but two distinct fragrances, not sure a fight betweem them is fair but I tend to agree with Pure Havane being more casual. That being said DHI can be dressed up for a night out or lightly worn to work imo.
