Dior Homme Sport (2021) - Your thoughts?

Dior doesn't call the fragrance Dior Homme Sport 2021, just Dior Homme Sport.
Really it's more correct to name it 2022 as first batches of 2012 version were produced in late 2011 as well as Dior Homme 2020.

This is true, but with the regularity of complete reformulations in this line, being consistent with the rest of the community would help to avoid any confusion.

Stopped in to Dillard's today and tried it on my wrist. I definitely think it's an improvement over 2017. The citrus up top combined with the aldehydes is very well done. I don't find it to be overpowering and the way it combines with the "woody" notes makes it a very pleasant scent.

As others have mentioned it's not going to blow you away, but I think it could be a great workhorse for the office or where you want to smell nice, but don't want to be the center of attention.

I'll pick up a bottle at some point.

Also the new 2021/22 Sport does not have the red ring around the base of the sprayer.
As with the new Dior Homme, the edges are rounded off on the new Sport.

I'm really curious about this one.
Can't get it in the UK or even EU at present, not even on Dior's website.
To those who have this or have tried it fully, is this just a fresher version of DH2020 or is it a discernably different scent profile?
Would owning both DH2020 and DHS2021/22 be a redundancy?
I don't like having two scents that are too similar, don't see the point.

Do we think this will be released in the UK? Seems to only be the US right now?
Surprised that it’s not out in France (I.e. My Origines or Nose Paris)???

No Hednic, I’ve not heard of them?
My Origines had YSL Bleu Eau Electrique when it couldn’t be had in the UK but so far not DHS2022..

Hednic, Just checked and Marrionaud only seem to have the 2017 version at present.
Also expensive compared to ‘My Origines,

Own and love DHS 2008 & 2012. Got my nose on 2022 and believe they all appear to have fallen from the same tree and may be considered redundant by some. Glad to report the sprayers are as awesome as ever.

Smells like a mix of DHS 2017 and DH 2020 to me but closer to DH2020, aka still too synthetic for me. But why am I even bothering to test this out in the dead of winter? I'll give this a fair shake when the weather warms. As of now I am not a fan and prefer the 2017 flanker even if it is more feminine and floral as opposed to the masculine synthetic woods in 2021.

I enquired at 'My Origines' (France) and they replied...
'Following your request, we would like to inform you that Dior homme sport en 75ml et 125ml should be available on our website from 17/01/2022'.

I may take a punt on this if it's a good price, but need to be sure it's not too like DH2020 as I intend to buy that as well?

So, forgetting previous DH Sports, would owning this new DH Sport 2021/22 be redundant if I also had DH2020?

Bought it today. Like it a lot. Dry iso? aldehyde, citrus. The citrus is not bergamot to me, nor tangy like lemon. Its like grapefruit with all the bite removed, in equal parts with the aldehydes. It seemed quite ample to me, but that is up in the air still. Someone who likes the DH update will I think like this. I had an incredibly fleeting moment where I whiffed some incense in movement. Can't be sure it was from this though. Quite good, in my opinion, so far.

Tried this one. To my nose it's almost a dupe of G&B Bohemian Lime. Much better than 2012/2017 versions with a good performance. A winner from Dior.

To my nose DH Sport 2022 is more beautiful than DH 2020, without that Terre d'Hermes vibe.

New sport is a very very strong dry grapefruit chemical new age thing. I like it a lot. It has that chemical grapefruit from lb forever, but dials it back from 11 to 7, balancing it out. Then aromachemical stuff, bitter and unsweetened. It is fairly well balanced and blended, though a bit overpowered in the base. It will grate on people who do not like abstract smells that do not correspond to nature. It, chemically. Though it is more abrasive and scratchy, and not warm and woodyambery.

This is basically what I got from it too. A bit more earthy and dry than most designer citrus scents.

First thing that came to mind was Mancera Soleil d'Italie, but I get the Light Blue Forever comparison now that you mentioned it

I've worn it a few times now. I don't get that much similarity to the 2020 EDT. To me, it's most reminiscent of a bitter grapefruit that has been squeezed of all its juice. Oddly dry for a citrus, not refreshing in the way Dior Homme Cologne is for example. Doesn't seem to perform as well as the regular Homme 2020. I get the comparisons I've seen to Issey Miyake fragrances but I wouldn't consider it derivative or generic.
