    There is room for both, but if you need to choose, I would go with the original. No doubt there are many reasons for appreciating ACDD, but many folks do so because they think the projection of LADDM is just too much of a good thing. Luckyscent, for example, markets ACDD thusly: "Those who love L’Air du Desert Marocain will be relieved to find clear echoes in Au Coeur, but those who found the original too dramatic will be delighted to find a version built on a more human scale." While I recognize the performance and staying power of LADDM, I find the experience comforting rather than boisterous. It's a modern masterpiece that everyone should have.

    Both great and there is certainly space for both. I voted for Air because it is bigger, sweeter, very wintery.

    I haven't tried Au Coeur but LDDM is quite thin on my skin with minimal projection. I've tried/owned different bottles in 2015-17.

    I find both scents pretty loud and enduring.

    Coeur isn't really dialed back in presence, it's just that the extra aromatic nuances help it present a bit softer to the nose.

    I love both. ACDD would be an immediate purchase if I didn’t already have LADDM, which I don’t wear often enough.

    Au coeur smells very close to LDDM only richer and has much better performance. the performance of LDDM for 2015 and later bottles is just ok.

    I havent tried au couer. Id like to. I consider LDDM a masterpiece. Never feel the need for more power. It is a decent projecter with above average to good longevity. It does have a weak sprayer tho. Not bad, just small.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Au Coeur du Desert is slightly less tiresome.

    Au Coeur du Desert.

    More patchouli and leather, not as much amber and vanilla, and maybe less cumin.

    During the past years I purchased and sold two bottles of LADDM, I am trying ACDD now and I like the fact that has less cumin, we'll see.

    Tough choice, as both are great. Coeur is a more easy-to-like version of L'Air, more up with the current tastes, offering a richer/fuller experience, (and a way higher price tag, was there a need to specify?), but has lost the magic, specificity and most of all the thin perfect balance reached in L'Air, hence my choice to go with the masterpiece: L'Air.
    (that said, it's a fight between stunning vs masterpiece, so you can't go wrong with any of these two).

    I find Au Coeur to be deeper and richer than LADDM.

    I vacillate between these two beauties. Love em both. One day, I like L'AdDM better, a week later I like ACdD better.
    Today, I'm wearing ACdD, ergo, I like Au Coeur better

    We have to consider as well that ACDD is 40% expensier than LADDM, is it worth it?

    Yes, contra Andrei, I think it probably is, though I'd really recommend sampling them both and picking which one you enjoy more.

    I have decants of both LADDM and ACDD and have the solid perfume of LADDM en route so I'm not *that* dogmatic about which one people prefer. They're very, very similar.
