This is for the original 2005 formulation

It starts off with a prominent iris note that is neither too floral or feminine. After a while it begins to show some oriental aspects notes like vanilla and some spices from the cardamon. In the base it becomes a bit more greener thanks to the vetiver with a little bit of leather for support. This is an excellent alternative to Dior Homme Intense if one does not like a lot vanilla in the base. I consider this one of the better modern designer scents made. Quite versatile, works for both casual work settings. It could worn during most of the year.

This one is actually in the middle of the road between Olivier Polge's Dior Homme (2005) and Francois Demachy's Dior Homme (2011). It's got way more iris than 2011 and is much more spicy and tad sweeter than 2005. I own 2005 (particularly version from 2008), compared them hand to hand. Similar indeed - 2008 seemed to be focused more on the iris while my Original bottle seemed to have more pronounced lavender and cardamom.

Still have to test it more and thorough - for now I really liked it.

I bought the deodorant stick on a blind buy.

It smells like powdery moisturising cream with a hint of vanilla.

It's not offensive, but it's boring and practically unisex. Should be stocked in the hand cream section of the supermarket.

OK, so I just got a sample of the new Dior Homme 2021/2022 reformulation and, frankly, I'm a bit pissed off. They took out the iris?!?

For anyone who's been under a rock, Dior Homme used to be a wonderful iris with violet on top and a luxurious leathery chocolate/vanilla drydown. It was, without question, the best quality men's designer scent in wide circulation and, especially at discounter prices, better than or as good as many niche/luxury iris perfumes at ten times the price.

And now they've taken the iris, violets, leather, vanilla, and chocolate out and it smells like thin artificial lemon over weird artificial wood. There's an odd greasy food note (chicken bullion? the powdered flavor packet that comes with ramen noodles??) in there that's gross, but I guess it's an attempt at "character".

Just unacceptable.

Like it's counterpart, Dior Homme Intense, I am always amazed that this is considered masculine. It's powdery and cool and fairly unisex to my nose, perhaps with a hint of barbershop, but mostly soft powdery iris. It's a very nice iris blend, but I prefer the Intense for it's strongly vanillic dry down. That being said, neither to me are manly scents. Maybe they are cuddling fragrances, but my grandad wore English Leather and it dried down powdery like this on him, so to me, powdery scents on men are aging, no offense intended to those who prefer them.

Iris, woody, leather and spicy, very cologney and grandpa smell- reminds me very much of something my dad wore mid 80s-mid90s which I can't put my finger on...

Very nice cocoa and wood notes in late dry down but it takes way too long to get there.

Pretty good as far as designer scents go but they just don't do much for me these days.
