    Aventus. But l'Homme is a great choice nonetheless.

    L'Homme is the better smelling scent for me. Love Aventus but if you take away the fact that its niche and creed, it doesn't match up with L'Homme
    Seasonal rotation:

    Original Santal
    Dior Homme
    Ambre Topkapi
    Rose 31
    Green Irish Tweed

    I almost voted for YSL just for spite, but ultimately I do think Aventus is the better (more complex, well made, better performance, etc) of the two. Interestingly, I've never had a positive reaction while wearing this one and yet, I've had compliments with the YSL.

    Ditto. Finally a worthy comparison of two frags that have similar utility, and are both well-regarded.

    I'd wear L'Homme 7 days a week, no second thoughts, if that was all I had. However, the edge goes to Aventus as a slightly better offering.

    Maybe these threads will get back on track, if these kinds of comparisons start happening with regularity.

    Think about how many amazing scents weren't in the spam polls and how many bizarre choices were, including a flanker of a flanker. A few months of spam poll after spam poll to reach a conclusion that was obvious from the start.

    Green Irish Tweed vs Curve told us everything we needed to know. The Miami Heat vs. The Billings Montana YMCA.

    And we've still got another month of spam to go.

    Hmm hard to say... they serve pretty different purposes in my opinion. Kind of like deciding between a large utility vehicle and a compact sedan.

    Supposed I'd go with Aventus if I had to have one or the other though.

    I like both, but due to price disparity, and the ashtray note in Aventus, YSL L'Homme gets my vote despite its longevity issues on my skin.

    This frag battle is almost a joke. Its obvious who will win this battle, not fair for L'homme at all.

    I want to clarify as a caveat, that just because I voted for Aventus doesn't mean I want to idealize it or look at it through a rose-tinted lens

    Aventus. It's more interesting than L'Homme. Always wearable as well.

    YSL L'Homme is a well made fragrance but it has a bit too much ginger and tonka for my taste. I owned a bottle and ended up swapping it. It's more of a fragrance to wear in formal situations for me and is just tad bit on the feminine side for my tastes.

    Aventus is a fragrance that blew me away the first time I tried it, and I ended up sampling it only about a year ago after reading much of the hype and criticism as well. But it truly exceeded the hype for me. One of the top 5 masculine fragrances ever released IMO. And quite honestly if had to only have two fragrances in my collection it would be Aventus and GIT/ADG Essenza.
