Which of these two fragrances should I choose?
I got a $50 gift card for Target this Christmas, and the only thing that I would want to buy there at the moment is a fragrance....I looked at the Fragrance Department and I was highly disappointed...the only two decent choices are Givenchy Pi and Dior Fahrenheit, but I cannot sample them, for those of you who have tried them, which should I choose?

Givenchy Pi


-or-

Dior Fahrenheit



Thx,
Arturo

If you're not certain why not just hold on to the gift certificate til something you really want comes along..?

Fragrances are different on different people..I think its quiet a gamble relying on others opinions of fragrances..go with your own gut !

Yes, that is very true.

Actually, I have tried Givenchy Pi, it has a very sweet, warm scent. I bought a miniature version a long time ago and I really loved it, but I don't know if it suits me as well. Well, anyway, I don't have the problem anymore, as at Target they sell them so, so, so cheap ($20's, etc) that I think I can get both with the gift card. Thx, Hanne

This is what I got from the sephora website.
Why dont you compare the notes of these two and some fragrances that you already like and see if they have anything in common?


Quote:
Pi



An alternative to the citrus scents of the 90's, Pi is a celebration of what makes a man seductive - his intelligence, courage, and contributions. Pi is more than a name, it's a symbol. The masculine bottle, designed by Serge Manseau, has a hi-tech closure system and plays on the contrast between pure lines and perfect proportion. Notes:
Basil, Pine Needle, Infinium.
Style:
An intense and sensual fragrance.


Fahrenheit



A resolutely contemporary fragrance characterized by a meeting of extremes. Fresh, elegant notes blend in perfect harmony with bolder, more virile overtones to create a scent that is warm, subtle, and distinguished. Notes:
Hawthorn, Sandalwood.
Style:
Hot, cool and everything in between for the contemporary man.

Thx, you two

Well, I went yesterday and I bought Fahrenheit, I love how it smells, although at first it has a sort of "rubbery" smell, but otherwise it's really pleasing..I'm glad I chose it.
