    Default Should I buy Versace pour Homme or Dior Higher ?

    Hi, I sampled the Versace today and it is amazing but I read about the Dior Higher within the last few days here and it seems to be an interesting scent (I think there was another thread about it).
    Which fragrance is better and which one is a better compliment getter ?

    thanks in advance

    Dior Higher is pretty floral and for that reason I wouldn't buy it unless you've smelled it. I have owned both of these and out of the two I think you would get more use out of Versace Pour Homme.

    How is the sillage/longevity of the Higher and the Versace (compared) ?

    Personally liking Higher a bit more, but VPH tends to last a bit longer and could also be likelier to get complimented.

    Dior Higher IMO is much better.

    It's as arbitrary as asking a bunch of random internet strangers: "Which fragrance is better and which one is a better compliment getter?"

    Both of the questions you posed are nothing more than personal opinion.

    VPH smelt pretty like a citrus synthetic cocktail mess to me. I highly suggest you sample it before you buy it. I havent had a chance to smell Dior Higher.

    Versace Pour Homme is much better.

    Versace Pour Homme is quite a bit stronger and lasts longer. Higher is light.

    I owned Higher briefly, I thought it was sharply fresh, but its longevity wasnt great, and the scent a bit generic.

    Thanks guys So the big problem with the Higher might be it's bad sillage/longevity...

    Is the sillage/longevity of the Versace so much better ?

    It's not awful, but it's also not the best. Honestly it's not something I would recommend buying without smelling it. I do like it, but it's very floral and if your not used to that then your immediately going to think it's too feminine. There's also a pear note in it and that is a bit of an odd note if you've never smelled it before. Composition wise I like Dior Higher better, but as far as having something to wear day in and day out that's pleasant and will get you compliments it's Versace Pour Homme hands down.

    Well I have no problem with floral/feminin scents I love Nikos Sculpture Homme for example
    And the problem is I can't test the Dior because I only found it online

    Haven't tried DH, but I love my VPH.

    DH. VpH is too much of a bad thing. Longer legs and greater longevity aren't advantages with that one imo.

    It's like a floral version of Tommy by Tommy Hilfiger and instead of the apple note you have pear instead with cypress in the background. Even if you don't like the floral and pear notes you could probably still enjoy it once it hits the dry down. If you don't like cypress though you'll not like it one bit.

    I bought mine $20 for 100ml.
    After a few wears, I was against wearing it anymore.
    It is quite loud to start, then a skin scent after a couple of hours.
    Probably best on a hot day.
    There were just other scents I'd rather wear, so I passed it on in a trade with another member here.

    Higher is the lowest point for Dior imo but up against the Versace it wins

    So, a choice between two bad ones
