    Personally, not really a fan of either - IMO, this is a match-up of the 2 most overrated fragrances.

    If I had to pick, I would go with London. I think.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    While I agree with Dougczar that London is overrated, I absolutely can't stand L'Homme, so London wins easily.

    L'homme. Much more versatile IMO. London smells awesome but longevity sucks. Gets cloying even in slightly warm weather too.

    Super tough one!!! Love both, but I have to go with L'homme because of the shear versatility of it.

    Prefer L'Homme for spring/summer -- London for fall/winter.

    Hate London with passion, like L'Homme, though only a weak skin scent. Neither deserve a place in my collection...

    Tough one because I'm not a fan of either, but I do think L'Homme is more versatile and if forced to wear one it would definitely be L'Homme.

    Would've voted London had I seen the poll in time, but it is fairly close for me.
