About Dior Homme Intense

Dior Homme Intense is the third fragrances in the Homme series, following Dior Homme and Dior Homme Cologne. The fragrance was originally a limited edition, but is now part of the permanent line up.

The fragrance echoes the lavender, iris and vetiver found in the original fragrance, and increases the strength from Eau de Toilette to Eau de Parfum.

Dior describe the fragrance as:

The quintessence of prestige and sophistication in a generous and powerful Eau de Parfum. Intense Iris, enhanced by a sensual amber facet and precious wood base, exudes its powerful charm. A sensual interpretation with a fragrant trail that is an invitation.

Reviews of Dior Homme Intense

I bought this because it was one of the newer winners of a Base Notes award and it has a very low ratio of negative reviews.

While the scent did smell ok to me, it did not turn any heads while I wore it in Kerala, India and that disappointed me.

An absolute winner on longevity. The vanilla basenote stays on your skin for at least 24 hours and maybee more if it wasnt for the everyday shower... Getting a lot of great compliments on this one. Opening is as marvelous as for Eau for men or Dior for men.

a nice powdery scent

this one starts with the lipstick/make-up smell which is mostly attributed to the iris. the vanilla and woods later kick in providing a smooth and slightly delicious combination. the smell is very popular these days and gets me compliments. excellent performance.

A deliciously sweetened vanilla version of Dior Homme. It misses the cardamom I love in the opening of Dior Homme, but makes up for it with a long-lasting vanilla base. I go back and forth on whether I prefer the original or the intense flanker, but as of writing I think I prefer the chalky complexity of the original Dior Homme, although I appreciate the increased projection and longevity of Dior Homme Intense, and it's the only fragrance I have that regularly gets positive comments.

I had a very difficult time choosing between this and dior homme. .in the end I decided to go with intense as we are on the cusp of autumn (need a more wintery smell) and the performance seems twice as good although dior homme seems a little bit classier and complexed especially in the dry down that deserves a white shirt. Intense is obviously king of the department store, it sits on the shelf in another class altogether and waits for a gentleman to choose it through like me a long journey of fragrance trying and buying. I love the note of iris , dior blend this ingredient into male fragrances amazingly , I get a wonderful wax note that I first experienced in penhaligons sartorial and I also enjoy the woodsy leathery amber dry down. I don't see lipstick as most of the fragrance community describes ..I see iris and wax separately, admittedly I did feel at first a bit of granny's handbag but after a few wearing's I appreciate the notes and quality for what they are. Longivity is amazing and thanfully didn't really go away til I showered ..projection is good for the first 1hr and a half and then sits on the skin waiting for cuddles for the rest of the evening. Price is great also considering this is niche quality.

Update* I bought this also in the end lol and the parfum version

A heavier sweeter Dior Homme with much more amber and a lot less interest.
