Lets say initial price is X rs, price after 10% discount will be.

X – X*10/100 = 90X/100, final price is 9/10th of initial price.

Thus price after 10 times discount of 10% over and over will be X(9/10)^10 = 0.3486X.

While price after 65% discount will be 0.35X.

Thus it will be more beneficial to choose Second scheme.
