Derby by a HUGE margin.
Thread: BDP vs Derby
Hello all, I'm new to the forum and seasons greetings. I've decided I'm going to treat myself to a new bottle. Having tried lots I've narrowed it down to the Creed and Guerlain heavyweights BDP and Derby. I notice that both receive much acclaim on here but when pitted against each other which do people prefer?
I own both (both new formulations)
I would go for BDP
Being the stronger and more lasting
The opening lavender of BdP is harsh but the woody drydown is very good. Though I will have to give the edge to Derby for it's wonderful complexity.
Another for Derby (& by a mile) in terms of the scent.
BdP however does have more longevity on me.
Tough choice, but I give the slight edge to Derby.
It sounds as if you have tried both; which do you prefer?
Derby is a fine fragrance, but I do have longevity issues with it (non-vintage formulation). BdP truly is one of my favourites and has no such longevity problems. If I had to choose only one, it would have to be BdP. I would miss the Derby though.

That's tough. I find the longevity on both to be very good. Both smell great. I think if forced to pick I would go with BdP. Can't go wrong with either.
You should have made a poll for this.
Make that 9. Derby is much better.
