    Default Beach Hut Man vs. Bracken Man

    Which of these green fragrances would you go for? I want a bottle for spring to go along reflection man, TDH edt, and dior homme eau. I have samples of both, I'm having a hard time deciding.

    Never tried Bracken, but Beach Hut has a very harsh opening.

    While I have a full bottle of Beach Hut, I've only sampled Bracken. I think I actually prefer Bracken, but I do think Beach Hut is a little easier to wear.

    Beach Hut in the deep drydown seems to remind me of cheap deodorant.

    Bracken - received several compliments on and it is basically the only one I own that has elicited any.

    Beach Hut was probably my biggest disappointment in years. All the positive reviews I read and after one wearing I can't stand it. Bracken Man on the other hand is one I like a lot and my GF absolutely loves!

    For green I’d go with Fougere Royale by Houbigant, Floris 1962, Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland, Sartorial by Penhaligon’s, vintage I-12 by Halston, vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme or vintage Bowling Green by Bowling Green.

    I wish Bracken had Beach Hut's longevity.

    I'd give a slight edge to Bracken, since its composition is more traditional in composition vs. the screaming ivy of Beach Hut.

    Beach Hut for me. Bracken is a patchouli-bomb on my skin. I like it, but don't love it based on my initial wearing. It seemed to be lacking in the performance category between the two, too.

    I found something very grating and irritating about Bracken, it was definitely a "dislike" fragrance in my experience. So I would have to give my vote to Beach Hut.

    I'd pick Bracken for the cooler days of Spring and Beach Hut for the warmer spring days and Summer. Find both of them fantastic.

    I find Bracken to be earthy rather than green. But, Beach Hut is super green! I prefer BH.

    How much green do you want??

    I think that's what it comes down to.

    Because BH is MUCH more green.

    Bracken has green facets.

    I would choose over both of them (although I like bracken) is fate man.
    It is a little challenging but a very sophisticated scent. Best for spring or summer nites or maybe a festival nite atmosphere.
