    What is it about Jules that does it for you?

    It is more that I find Pour Monsieur nothing special, boring, 13 in a dozen. Jules is one of a kind!

    Love them both, but Jules for me.

    Pour Monsieur for me. I owned both. Sold Jules, kept PM.

    But that's not because there's anything wrong with Jules. Jules is good, nice and crisp, well-composed. I just find Pour Monsieur a simpler, fresher scent, which makes it more versatile for me. As to which is better...? I actually think PM is a little better as far as the ingredients' quality and composition, how everything's put together. I'd put PM slightly ahead of Jules.

    *But I'm talking about Jules 2016. I haven't tried the vintage.

    Pour Monsieur EDT is too different from Jules to compare them IMO. I should compare Pour Monsieur with Eau Sauvage EDT.

    I like Eau Sauvage and Pour Monsieur both, a lot. But pour monsieur is slightly warmer and 'dirtier' that makes it for me a better cold weather scent too.

    It's taste to like all of those three. But I should say Jules is most 'different' from them. To like Jules more than Pour Monsieur or vice versa says more about your taste in in general than in details.

    As others have said, we're talking about pour monsieur EDT. Pour monsieur is classic citrus, Jules is an aromatic fougere. I'd lean for pour monsieur, but both are worth having.

    I'd say Pour Monsieur right now. I'm not sure on what vintage my current Jules sample is. I need to try the current formulation. From what I know now, Pour Monsieur is a great all-around daily scent, while Jules would be more of a weekender and a bit more of a challenge.

    I'd go with Jules, mainly because I haven't smelled anything else quite like it. Very fruity and pleasant, and projection is substantial.

    I think the 2016 version of Jules is excellent, but I'd personally be more inclined to buy Pour Monsieur myself (the EdT).

    Or Black scratches a similar itch as Jules does, albeit less greenly, and I don't have anything that satisfies the way Pour Monsieur does when I'm in the mood for it.
