    Not so much a battle than a massacre. Dior Homme.

    After a painstaking process of listing pros and cons for each fragrance, and judging the relative merits of each on smell and versatility I have decided to give the slight edge to Dior Homme.

    **I am kidding of course, DH obliterates FFL.

    Dior Homme

    Not that Fuel for Life is bad, but Dior Homme simply obliterates it.

    Dior Homme. Fuel for life is nice, but after awhile I just can't deal with it and starts to bother me.

    I really don't understand these battle posts. Most of them suggest a lack of knowledge about fragrances since they usually compare scents that aren't comparable. It's like going to a gourmet food site and asking "Which is better? Fois Gras or Kelp Noodles." The two have nothing in common.

    Dior Homme and Diesel Fuel For Life are both designers, but that's all they have in common. They smell completely different, wear completely differently, and each is better suited to completely different occasions.
    I'm looking for a few ml of Creed Himalaya. I have lots of great stuff to swap including Spice & Wood, TF Oud Wood, or maybe a bunch of niche samples? Options options options! If you're interested, let me know!

    Seriously OP, how do you come up with these bizarre 'battles'? Have any of the two scents had anything to do with each other, and have any of the polls been close? Not to be a dick - but what's the point?

    Which is better? The Mona Lisa, or a Dodge Dart?
    Which is better? A Ham Sandwich, or Alcatraz?
    Which is better? Led Zeppelin or Your Mom.
    Which is better? A gentle spring rain, or the number 4?
    Which is better? Yellow, or a kite?
    Which is better? Glass, or a pony?
    Which is better? Wednesday, or a desk?
    Which is better? A clock or Mr. Magoo?
    Which is better? The Russian Army, or the moon?
    Which is better? A meaningless poll, or a triangle?

    Ironically, I voted for Dior Homme, even though I used to own DFFL and have never owned a bottle of DH (just DHI).

    "Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense! Am I wrong?"

    ^^^^ lol's at a few of these.

    Seriously, though. Battles should be used, if at all, when fragrances are worn for similar occasions/purposes, fall under the same category, share a dominant note, etc. I think it will serve newer guys and lurkers better...
