Spray it on and discuss world-class literature. Or, better yet, create some.

Tried this after Intense, and I think Intense is the better scent, but this is ok and I could respect either choice. If you have Intense, I wouldn't see the point in getting this. Will stay a sample.

There are a few milestones in perfume history, that really changed the way of the whole industry and the way consumers understood what male perfumery is all about. Dior Homme is one of them.

Originally released back in 2005 and getting a slight reformulation in 2011, Dior Homme is one of the all time best sellers, something that didn't just happened by chance or just because of a strong marketing campaign. It is not only the way this perfume was presented or advertised, it was a perfect combination of a brand new revolutionary way of how male perfumes may smell like, while sharply representing the philosophy of the Dior Homme line.

I remember the first time I smelled Dior Homme and how I instantly fell in love with it. Traditionally, female perfumes smell a lot like flowers while male perfumes smell a bit like a barber shop: I am not really sure if this is just the way perfume industry and social belief defined how it should be or it is based to something more primitive and animalistic, like hormones and subconscious sexual attraction. Dior Homme came to mix this up.

What is really exceptional here is that Dior Homme goes a lot into the flower based female perfumery, while keeping a strong male core in it. I read a lot of complaints that Dior Homme smells like "lipstick in a leather bag" but this is not the case. Things are not so simple here. Its smell is a lot more complicated, with a lot of layers that slowly develop over time. Iris is really the strong note here, in a creamy and powdery base with hints of leather, which - quite peculiarly - keeps this perfume in the male side of the board.

Moreover what is really remarkable here is that the whole line of Dior Homme fragrances that followed (Intense, Cologne and Parfum) are little pieces of art too. It is really exceptional how they all succeed in taking the base of the original Dior Homme EDT and developing its smell to a different, still elegant and sophisticated level.

I think if someone asks me to describe this perfume in a few words, I would say that this is the definition of class and elegance.

No matter if you will love it or hate it you should give it a try. Dior Homme will be the kind of perfume that everyone's going to mention in the future as an eternal and vital part of male perfumery.

*This review was written after several full wearings of the perfume and not just after smelling this on paper or on wrist.

I like this much better than the Intense version. Dior Homme EDT comes across much fresher with a touch of powdery iris and leather.

Dior Homme Intense smells good but is enormously sweet and way too strong for my tastes. More like a melted chocolate bar in your pocket.

I sniffed this on the strip at Sephora a few times. The top notes smelled carboardish to me and I walked away from it on each occasion.
Then one day I gave myself a good spray and left.

About a half hour later I got out of my car and a breeze picked up the scent and sent it swirling about. I was like, oh wow, this is beautiful.

The worst thing I can say about it is that the scent does have a bit of lipstick-ishness. But if you can get over that, I was able to, this scent is a real gem.

This is the best designer/mainstream fragrance that I own.

Longevity is great for an EDT. Sillage is mighty, too.

This is a 10. What a surprise.

This to me is as good as perfection...... Love at first sniff... This defo better for a day scent, and Intense better for evening, or date night, either way these are what all designer frags should be aiming towards, the quality is undeniably top notch. Quality through and through.
Big thumbs up for me.
