    Both excellent. If I need to choose, I prefer the Chanel, which has a touch of green (in fact, I'm at my second 400ml bottle).

    The chanel lasts pretty well for being a cologne, but, like all traditional colognes, it doesn't have the longevity of a perfume.

    Own and love both, but prefer the Dior

    Dior Cologne Royale may be difficult to find, as Dior has started limiting its distribution.

    never smelled the dior but the chanel didn't impress me.

    all i could think of when sampling was give me bergamote 22

    OP maybe consider that if you want something with a bit more punch. same sort of genre smell wise as it sounds like you want a straightforward citrus by cologne and not something cologne strength.

    I had samples of both. I chose the Chanel, and for me, it wasn't even close.

    Both are excellent compositions, but make sure you don't judge them until you've had a chance to really let the drydown take over. On my skin, the Dior went kind of funky & musty, whereas the base of the Chanel becomes a wonderful wearable clean modern musk. The Dior leans toward the masculine side of unisex whereas the Chanel is right down the middle. As for performance: the Dior didn't last very long for me, whereas the Chanel had excellent longevity - surprisingly so, in fact. It can be a bit deceiving in how it wears. It can seem weak at first, because it has such an airy nature (not light, as in weak. Light as in that it seems weightless), but it lasts much longer than I would have expected.

    I think the Chanel is best in class. It's outstanding.

    Yeah, Chanel's Eau De Cologne isn't punchy at all. It is the most calming and gentle scent I own, which is part of what I love about it. And it's impressive that it could be so gentle and so natural smelling without being harsh and without being weak. This scent has absolutely no rough edges whatsoever.

    I tried the Chanel, but don't remember it (like most of Chanel's Exclusifs) I have a big bottle of the Dior, but can't say it's really worth the price.

    And if this is important,

    For longevity, definitely Cologne Royale.
