    Default What's the EdT you prefer over an EdP?

    I've noticed that it happens to me that in some cases I prefer the EdT way more than the EdP versions of the same scent. Of course there are opposite cases too, but I'm more interested in your examples of the EdT>EdP this time.

    My examples would be:

    D&G The One (EdT) - it's like the scent itself is overall more "there" than the EdP. It's still warm, spicy and creamy and I never had any longevity and projection issues with the EdT.

    Dior Homme (EdT) - it's like the scent is more direct and concise, more clear than DHI, but again warm and cosy while more versatile. Yes, the Intense version is a game for itself and timeless just like the original but it's the original that gives off more "intent" in terms of what you'd call "identity" or "recognisability".

    Chanel Bleu de Chanel (EdT) - more sharp, more masculine than the EdP without losing strength. Yes, the EdP is more rounded and smooth, but to me the EdT is much more "I'm the guy".

    Hugo Boss Bottled (EdT) - more versatile, more flexible whole year rounder. The EdP is smoother and less sharp but almost becomes more of a strictly autumn/winter fragrance, albeit not necessarily only an evening frag.

    What are your examples and why?

    Baccarat Rouge is the only one I can think of.

    I prefer the EdP in all of the examples you give (The One EDP over EdT, DHP to Dior Homme, and BdC Parfum to EdT. No opinion on Hugo)

    All of the Chanel EDT Les Exclusifs over the EDP Les Exclusifs.

    Sycomore EDT is much better than Sycomore EDP, 31 Rue Cambon EDT is much better than 31 Rue Cambon EDP.

    I also prefer DH edt, as Eau sauvage, Chanel pour monsieur-in general, the original classic masculine edt over their more recent flankers.
    And then the edt over the edp reformulation of Chanels, as ncal was saying.

    Almost everything. I appreciate the original version of the scent. In an EDT the notes open up better and I’m able to experience the fragrance more fully. EXCEPT Guerlain L’Homme Ideal. I like the EDT very much but the EDP is a treasure.
    Even in BR540 I prefer the original version EDP to the Extrait (if we were to compare two concentrations).

    Heritage
    Habit Rouge
    The One
    Bleu de Chanel (though Parfum is best)
    Sauvage (again Parfum is best)
    L'Instant de Guerlain (smells slightly better than the Extreme, IMO, though I wish the EDT performed a little better)

    Seconding certain aspects of vintage Eau Sauvage even over Eau Sauvage Parfum, regular Boss Bottled over its EDP version, also Jaipur Homme (though liking the EDP as well) already works well both as performance and as actual fragrance compared to the EDP, same with Caron pour un Homme EDT versus the higher concentration Millesime

    Bleu de Chanel EDT, more crisp and better longevity than EDP and Parfum.
    I own EDP and Parfum for completeness but EDT is my favourite of the trilogy.

    Grey Vetiver by a mile.

    Lovely citrus in the EDT, fresh, sprightly, TF's best citrus scent in my opinion with a clean, masculine backing of vetiver. The EDP is too vetiver heavy, too dark, too old school.

    So of course they discontinued the EDT...

    Cuir de Russie, the EdP feels like an aftershave compared to its EdT it doesn't make sense.

    Narciso Rodriguez for Him, with EdT closest thing to my signature scent I was lucky to not blindbuy EdP, it's entirely different.

    I'm torn between DH & DHI, I could go either way honestly but I think the EDT is an easier wear. I definitely prefer Bleu dC EDT over the EDP but the Parfum is probably my fav of the three, same with Sauvage (not Eau, no opinion on that front). These are all so close for me, haha, I think I prefer TdH EDT over the PP. I prefer Prada L'Homme over the Intense which I'm assuming is an EDP.

    A big +1 on these. That the EDT range is no longer in production really pisses me off.

    I don't have experience with the Bentley, but can't agree more with the other 4.

    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Of the Les Exclusifs I've smelled, I agree.

    Although I like both, I prefer Guerlain Heritage EdT over the EdP.

    I like Nicolai's New York EdT better than New York Intense (EdP).

    Hanae Mori H.M.

    The EDT has a wonderful separation between the citruses/florals, and the amber/tonka base. With the EDP, it all becomes a gummy mess. And since the EDT lasts so long, there's no need for a heavier concentration anyway.


    I also prefer Tom Ford Noir Eau De Toilette over Tom Ford Noir (EDP) and Aqua Universalis over Aqua Universalis Forte, but in both cases, the EDP counterparts aren't just heavier concentrations. They're significantly different scents.

    Dior Homme over the Intense or Parfum, because I like the dryness of the leather, woods, and vetiver a bit more than the heavier iris or creamier bases of the other two. I prefer the balance of the original.
