    Happen to have both, but don't believe it's necessary for one to have both. The EDP should suffice IMO.

    Haven't tried the Parfum. The modern EdT is good, but the black rounded cap 80's/90's vintage blows it away. Also the old-school Les Plus Belles Lavandes is more preferable over the modern EdT.

    Is the parfum similar/same as what was called impact?
    If so, agree with hednic.

    That's what I've read. I have Impact (probably last release) and current EdT and find them redundant. I don't have enough experience to prefer one over the other, but I do find the current EdT good.

    Yessir!
    The Parfum / Impact is longer lasting, denser (as usual) with a slightly more pronounced musk note & less vanilla; love it!

    You may also consider the PUH Millésime 2014, something in between, stronger than the regular PUH, with lavender as the star...Excellent!

    Get all three...;-)

    Might be the case. And Sport. That makes it four.

    Both are excellent, but You can do fine with just one.

    Pour un Homme Sport is a very good fragrance, iced mint with hints of the original. Also, I still look forward to trying Eau.

    Now I have CPUH edt and Parfum, also a partial mini of vintage edt. Vintage being the best of the trio, clearly. Mostly because it has the most smooth and pronounced vanilla note. Also it has less playdoh note than the current versions which isn't my favourite. Will get Millesime 2014 version at some point too and see how is that. Sampled Sport but not quite sure do I like it or not yet.

    yeah, Pour Un Homme edt is great.

    I love Sport too -- sort of a guilty pleasure.

    If the Parfum should not be available, seconding the opinion that the EDT already covers most of the points that make this fragrance positively stand out

    I wouldn't justify owning both EdT and Parfum.

    I have had EdT, Parfum and Millesime 2014. I enjoyed the latter two more than the EdT.

    EdT has a lot of powdery-soapiness which I didn't like. Parfum has the best longevity and projection with the lavender and vanilla amped up to the full. I still have a strong projection of it coming off clothes I'd worn with this on.

    The Millesime is only slightly different to the Parfum. Another projection monster with great longevity but I wouldn't bother with it if I have either of the other two.

    I see Caron website has parfum but they don’t ship to US.
    Would like to try- since the edt wears soft (both a blessing and curse depending on scenario you wear it).
