    I don't often buy into reformulation hype, but Chergui has changed a lot, and not for the better.

    It's no longer that gorgeous, thick, sweet tobacco that blooms right off your arm. If we were talking black-label Chergui you'd be well-advised to choose that.

    DHI is more practical, but Chergui is perhaps more interesting. So, DHI with a decant of Chergui perhaps.

    If I HAD to choose one I would pick DHI. But if I didn't have to pick one I would pick neither. Blind bought both of these and was not impressed at all so I sold them.

    Own both. Like both, but don't love either. Fully appreciate the compositions, but wearability of both is a little low for me. If forced to pick, I guess I would pick Chergui.

    I'm a huge fan of both and have no idea what to tell you. Flip a coin? DHI is creamy, smooth and has feminine undertones (some complain it smells like lipstick). Chergui has always been a little hard for me to describe, but it smells sweet and brown and like autumn. Some complain it's too sugary sweet, so perhaps it has more to do with what your idea of too sweet is.

    If you want complexity I'd pick Chergui. Both scents are very comforting. I really like how I feel when I wear DHI, I feel confident and refined wearing it, a better version of myself. Chergui might be better on a date, but DHI overall is probably more versatile. I definitely wear DHI more which my girlfriend loves, though there was a time when I could mow through Chergui like no other.

    I truly think both are essential for a guy to own. Perhaps you can order samples first if you only want one.

    Chergui, as I like stuff that's off the beaten path. DHI, while well-done, doesn't strike me as that interesting.

    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.

    This is no joke. A couple years ago I ordered a 5ml decant off some guy from eBay. It was hands down the most powerful, thick, rich, amazing, long lasting, projecting thing I have ever smelled. With the cap on my decant sprayer, I could still smell it from about 5 feet away, even though it hadn't been sprayed for over a week. It haunted me for days because I could not figure out what the hell I was smelling that was so delicious.

    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.

    3) Aventus (Creed)
