I find DHI easier to wear than Chergui. Both are excellent, but I'd go with the one I'd wear more often. The real question is, which would YOU wear more often? If you don't know, then you need to sample both. Spend a few bucks on samples. You'll be glad you did.

Both are great. Chergui is more unique, more complex, more untamed and with rougher edges. DHI is smoother, softer, rounder, warmer and probably more wearable. A tie really, but at gunpoint I'd choose - Chergui.
I did choose and my choice is Chergui
Fast forward to today and it still smells good but it's almost like an EDT version compared to the older stuff being EDP. I ordered from a legit site but maybe I will get it directly from SL next time around..
With all that said I would still pick the new Chergui over any DHI.
1) Chergui (Serge Lutens)
2) Dior Homme Intense
3) Aventus (Creed)
4) Allure Homme Sport (Chanel)
5) La Nuit De l'Homme (YSL)
...Dior Homme is for tenors; Chergui is for baritones...!
I have both and prefer Chergui.
DHI for me.
Current Top Ten:
1) Polo Crest
2) Chypre Palatin
3) 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
4) One Man Show Gold Edition
5) Kouros (Vintage)
7) Tobacco Vanille
8) Interlude Man
9) More than Words
10) Ungaro II (Vintage)
Current Top 5:
2. Byredo Bal d'Afrique
4. Ambre Nuit
5. Portrait of A Lady
5t. Xerjoff Uden
DHI for me
Chergui is just boring IMHO
Dior Homme Intense
Dior Homme Intense, either vintage or current formulation...
My all time favorite:
DHI for me too.

I would recommend both. Love them all but in terms quality, longevity and projection I will pick Chergui
Dhi by far.
DHI for me
2. Dior Homme
3. Dior Homme Intense
I wear DH most often of the 3, and Chergui is for a little more special occasions. I don't wear DHI very much, but I like it enough to keep.
