    Default Casamorati Mefisto or Mefisto Gentiluomo

    Which one do you prefer out of the two? I’ve only tried Mefisto Gentiluomo so I’d like to know if anyone thinks the original is better in any way and would be worth testing also.

    Having tried both, thought that the latter was much nicer.

    Between the two I prefer the original but these aren’t exactly my favourites from the house.

    I found it lighter, airier and more refreshing.

    I purchased samples of both of these from eBay a while back and have to agree with Diamondflame... Neither of these really caught my interest (especially given their price tag), but if forced to choose, I’d go with the former. I felt it was a bit bolder and more distinct. I thought the dry floral vibe layered with the tartness of the lemon and grapefruit set it apart from the latter. With that said, if I’m looking for a scent of this nature, I’d look to others first... Like vintage Eau de Rochas Pour Homme, L’Humaniste by Frapin, vintage Monsieur Balmain or Le Royale by Alexandre J.

    Mefisto gentiluomo is more refined and well rounded. The opening is fresher, and the lavender in the mid is more pronounced. The drydown is very similar. The original might be more long lasting. But MG lasts for a good 4 or 5 hrs as well

    100% the original for one simple reason, Gentiluomo lasts all of 15 minutes on me, I’ve tested it around 20 times in the last year to be certain from different bottles and had the same result each time
