    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:

    Green Irish Tweed
    Kobe
    Invasion Barbare
    The Noir 29

    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.
