    Default Dilemma between LIDGE and DH Intense

    Right to the point, I have yet to smell both of these but am really wanting to and will need to blind buy one of them. Smell is subjective, and many people will prefer one over the other.
    However, if we love vanilla-like sensual scents, that resonate for night outs or maybe even clubbing, which of these two would you say has the "sensuality" aspect to it and is not as "formal" or rigid in it's presentation?
    Basically I mean the scent that comes off as kind of playful or captivating/lustful, and not so much like an office or generic scent between these two.
    And regarding DH Intense..it would be the current one at the Dior Boutique that's being sold, so I guess that's the re-formulated one.
    Thanks..

    Honestly, they are both great. I recommend getting/buying samples of both and then only you can decide which one you like better for the purpose and occasion. We could all give you our opinions but you'll never truly know for yourself until you sniff both of them out.
    My top 5 changes like the Tennessee weather.

    Sound advice.

    You can't go wrong with either one. I prefer DHI by just a hair, and I think you'd like both based on your criteria. Another option for purchasing LIDGE would be to check BeautyEncounter, Fragrancenet, etc and see if they have a bottle. They might be a little more expensive the the Canadian boutique, but if you go through ebates first, you will get the difference later via a rebate check. The inky drawback is they don't stock LIDGE often and it goes quickly when they do. I got my bottle from Canada, and the customer service and price was good.

    I prefer DHI, by a lot.
    L'Instant EDT ruined the EDP for me.
    Then I tried DHI, its a much cleaner and classy composition IMO.

    Bentley for Men Intense I think you can include in the conversation as well, late dry down its there, a similarity with less feminine aspects.
    I have left Basenotes due to excessive childish behavior by community members.
    If you need to contact me, please use alternate forms of communication.

    I actually like LIDGE more. The cocoa is just great! DHI is more sensual though.

    Does anyone know which scent is more "vanilla-like" at the drydown? More sensual, or seductive vanilla mystery or lust at the end. Similar to like Givenchy Play Intense or along those lines... Whichever is "less heavy" too, if that helps.

    DHI has more vanilla.
    Lidge is more about cacao + patchouli

    DHI is the one you want. Love that stuff. You almost get a vanilla cake like vibe from it. It can also be light and playful if not over sprayed. VERY sensual and VERY sexy. LIDGE on the other hand is thicker with more of a powder feel to it. Orange and cacao is what I mostly get out of it. Although I enjoy it as well, I get a more older gentleman type vibe to it. I also own GPI and like it as well but it goes a totally different route with the coffee but I could see them in a similar vein, both being just the right amount of sweet and playful.

    I own and enjoy both but reach for LIDGE more often. However, DHI is what you're looking for based on description.

    For clubbing, I would go with Dior Homme Intense.
