    Edition Blanche for casual wearing or even office (during summer), if we compare with DHS 2008 (which is a more sporty version than EB). If we compare EB with DHS 2012, my pick is again EB just because the 2012 version of Dior and my skin dont interact very well in terms of performance.

    EB by a long shot - more unique lemon ice cream note.

    DHS, simply more invigorating and the ginger twist helps set it apart. versatile to boot for day or evening.

    EB isn't bad by any means, but to me feels like it has a more restricted use: as a cologne for the afternoon transition to evening.

    Blanche by far.

    DHS has a disgusting ginger note that ruins everything.

    Try the 2012 reformulation then, the ginger is very toned down. Smoother and slightly sweeter as well. Love the hint of iris which give the reformulation class that isn't usually associated with "sports" fragrances. I wouldn't be afraid of wearing this with a shirt and tie.

    Aren't they actually kinda 'similar' ?. Would it be an overlap if somebody has both ?.

    Own all 3, and even have backup bottles of all of them (EB, DHS 2008, DHS 2012).

    I really can't pick a favorite - If I could only have 5 fragrances for the whole summer, I think EB and at least one of the DHS versions would be in that 5. So, it would be like picking my favorite child.

    I owned but sold DHS whereas EB is one my top work fragrances. I should note though I sold "vintage" DHS and have not tried the reform yet.

    Dior Homme Sport for me. deeper, richer, longer lasting. I enjoy boy fragrances very much but DHS wins in my book.

    Hello dougczar,
    I don't know if you've ever tried DHS 2012 (the only one easily available for me) and AH ed. blanche side by side...
    Do you concur longevity is better on DHS 2012 than on the AHeb ?
    Unfortunately the Chanel is fleeting quickly on my skin...
    Thanks !

    I prefer the new DHS to the old one; The ginger has been toned down, and the little bit of iris smoothes the lemon, almost giving it a creamy aspect to it. I can see the comparisons to Edition Blanche in that respect.
    However, I prefer EB to either versions of DHS.

    If your looking for performance it's DHS hands down. Edition Blanche doesn't project or last that well. The problem I have with EB is that it has a great creamy lemon opening with a touch of pepper and once that goes away it's nothing but a cheap smelling tonka bean. DHS (2008) is a bit sharp up top with a ton of ginger and lemon, but it dries down with musk, woods, and retains the ginger. Can't comment on the 2012 version, but from the time that I tested it I liked the smell better, but the longevity and projection sucks.

    Opening: Edition Blanche
    Dry Down: DHS
    Longevity: DHS
    Projection: DHS
    Versatility: DHS
    Compliment factor: Probably a tie, but DHS will be more noticable.
