    Default Cant decide, Divine L'homme Sage or 34 Boulevard St Germain ?

    I am in between and cant decide which to go with. My limitations will only allow me to get one or the other. I can tell you that I am uncertain about the dry-down OF L'homme Sage as I think it flattens out. 34 St Germain seems to be full bodied and very green. I like aspects of both, but this dry-down of L'homme Sage is turning me off a bit. Any insight into this ?

    Good choices, I'm a big fan of both! I'd lean towards 34 blvd SG because I had longevity issues with L'homme Sage, but you can't go wrong with either.

    I haven't tried Divine L'homme, however, I can say that I do enjoy 34 BSG from top to bottom. It really progresses quite nicely from Green on top to floral/woody to slightly spicy/woody at the bottom. I don't think you will be disappointed with the Dyptique at any stage of the wearing IMO, it does not disappoint.

    What a nice predicament! You can't go wrong with either but imo 34 Boulevard Saint Germain edges out the Divine L'Homme Sage with its more interesting evolution to drydown.

    L'Homme Sage goes "cheap woody base" on me, I'm afraid - unwearable. I bought a bottle some years back - one of my few regrets.

    Heres how I see it:

    IF 34 Street St Germain were a Disco: The music is playing, tons of people on the dance floor with hands in the air, with an after party.

    If Divine L'homme Sage were a Disco: Good music would be playing at first and only a few very old people would be dancing, with walkers. The party ends early.

    I think both are great -- toss a coin.

    Y'all are crazy! Divine L'homme Sage is a great fragrance, and has gotten me several compliments. Lol@ whoever said they had longevity issues with it. HAAA!!! You mean like, it lasting too long?!?!? I once got a compliment on this one after wearing it for about 9 hours. This one projects like a beast and last forever. My vote is for Divine L'homme Sage.

    @Nersh-hilarious man, great analogy. 34 Blvd Germain is the way to go.
    My mom's great. I appreciate her sense of humor, patience and fondness for daytime drinking. :0)

    The Divine smells very nice, but for me it faded out very quickly. Have not smelled the other.

    L'Homme Sage? Don't commit; just hit it and quit it.

    They are both great scents really.

    L'Homme Sage is a little more simple to my nose, it's mainly about spices with a woody musky base, but I do find it long lasting and deep.

    34 Boulevard St. Germain is more complex, as rynegne said above, a beautiful floral, woodsy, balsamic sort of scent with a great mellow rose note in there, getting progressively woodier into the base. I swear I smell some iris in there too, lending a silky texture to it. It has become one of my favorite scents to wear actually, it's very versatile.

    I think you can see where I'm going with this! 34 Boulevard St. Germain edges out L'Homme Sage.

    Another for 34 Boulevard St. Germain; don't find L'Homme that divine...
