About Higher Energy

A younger brother of Higher, which according to a Dior spokesperson, will be a "more dynamic, electric and younger fragrance, developed around an urban theme"

Reviews of Higher Energy

It's nice to finally sample Dior Higher Energy, a purportedly fresh and sporty take on the more provocative, earlier Higher, which is now discontinued and I've not sampled.

Higher Energy is quite reasonable in most respects as a designer freshie, balancing freshness and being quite pleasant and agreeable with some degree of provocativeness. Pineapple and grapefruit are familiar opening contributors, while juniper and mint spike up the mix a bit. The fragrance dries down into a heart of incense and pepper, giving way to a base of what comes off to me as sandalwood, musk, and perhaps cedar.\

It's not specifically very masculine but perhaps leans slightly masculine with the inclusion of the pepper and incense, specifically, but it's a quite pleasant unisex freshie fragrance overall, more ideal in composition for warm weather but also due to performance, which isn't great, with mediocre projection and longevity.

Pricing is fair at $55 for 100ml on FragranceNet. I don't see any standard retail sources (like department stores) still selling it, so Higher Energy seems to be confined other retail sources (i.e. Walmart, vendors) and the secondary market.

One I'll likely try to acquire as, if I had to guess, this too will be discontinued at some point.

The opening is quite pleasant with grapefruit, lemon and mint, but awfully generic. There is a bit of light pepper in the drydown, and the base on my skin is a dull wood and vetiver. Very generic and boring, will poor silage, limited projection and two hours longevity on my skin. Negative.

A guy who spends a lot of money that isn't his. Drives a car that is someone else's concern. Always moving. He is wearing really crisp, clean clothes. He stands out but not due to his lavish spending but because of how straight forward and simple he is dressed.

Very James Bond.

This fragrance smells amazing on me. From the moment my body begins to warm this fragrance up it truly is amazing. Actually, a female roommate of mine once loved it so much on me (she would literally start following me around the apt) she went out and bought it for her boyfriend. That bottle of fragrance was good to his love life.... so idk. Maybe it's just something about my body chemistry...

The "Higher Energy" in this one, with a name-resonance with "Higher Power" is really a higher price for starting with something horrible (Higher) and then welcoming the "improvement?" The best thing to keep close to your skin with this one is your money...midway you'll think you might have unknowingly showered without soap and partially washed off this allegedly "youthful" mash.

A clandestine in the business!
I have finally understood why its discontinued in the production.
After 20 minutes is smell like dogpoo.
Well, fresh dogpoo, on a hot asphalt,
mix it with a few grapefruits, and a mint chewing gum,
and you are there.

Whos fault, you tell me?
Well, its obviosly the strong vetiver note.
A vetiver in the basnotes is a bad misstake,
blended with the excellent topnotes, the fresh midnotes,
and the strong cedar notes, it smells like a freshly laid dog excrement!
Well, you have been warned.
NOT suitable for older persons in the age of 30-99 ears.
MAYBE it will work if you are like 15-25 ears of age.
But you have been warned,
Let not the top and midnotes charm you!

Chame on you vetiver,
chame on you indeed, for fooling the Dior-team!
Remake it and take away the vetiver note!
But for now! i give...
