Reviews of Dior Homme Cologne (2013)

I'm very surprised people like this so much and it has so many positive reviews. The opening is nice enough but it rapidly becomes a sour, acrid, rancid smell like a downtrodden laundromat without air-conditioning on a sweltering summer's day, it's almost gagging. Of all the fragrances I've tried this may be my least favorite and this is coming from someone who owns a bottle of Bijan.

Wanted something more fresh for the spring and summer months and the SA had me smell Homme Cologne. I loved it right away. It's really fresh, almost clean so to say. It has nothing to do with the original Homme.
Works really well in hot weather, haven't tried it in cooler weather but i guess this one works anytime. I wish it would last a bit longer but with a large bottle i don't mind a respray. You also can't overspay this one.

My favorite of the entire Dior Homme line, albeit lacks any commonality with the others. This is one is extremely fresh, subtle, and refined. The citrus opening continues throughout the life of the fragrance, and is easily one of the best in its genre.

Projection is average, but longevity is 6-8 hrs without ever truly becoming a skin scent.

The bergamot top note is delicious but it's gone quickly leaving a clean laundry smell. It's not horrible but it's not worth the price. A better alternative would be Voyage D'Hermes at every avenue of the fragrance.

Dior Homme Cologne (2013) is a simple cologne composition based on bergamot, grapefruit blossom and musk. The opening is a fresh and zesty bergamot, with the grapefruit blossom note soon coming into the mix. The fragrance develops a musky aura on skin in about 30 minutes and dies on skin in about two to three hours.

The issue is we are led to believe it's an eau de toilette, but essentially it's in eau de cologne strength. This means there are many such fragrances on the market, and many of them are more worthwhile. While it is well-crafted, it is nowhere near as delicious and natural smelling as something like Cologne Sologne or Mugler Cologne or Hermes Eau de Orange Verte (or the concentree version). Neither is it avant-garde like Eau de Gentiane Blanche, for example.

Moreover the musky base of this fragrance is rather feeble, and doesn't seem to be of the same quality as its top notes. On bad days the base smells like the neighbourhood laundromat.

A top note con job? Easily, just a 'filler' in the Dior Homme line.

Cologne Sologne, Mugler Cologne and any of the colognes from Hermes (besides many others) are much better alternatives.

Dior Homme Cologne is a simple but amazingly clean bergamot/grapefruit cologne. While fresh and energizing as a grapefruit citrus centered cologne can be, Dior Homme Cologne also manages to sneak in the DH signature background note that is not carroty nor iris leather, but similar and is a light elevating softness that it is Dior Homme DNA enough to claim a spot in line of the Dior Homme family. In my large collection of various colognes from different time periods Dior Homme Cologne has become my favorite summer wearing citrus refreshment cologne. Grab a bottle for posterity sake, just so you can have this classic, before Francois Demachy gets the reformulation bug again and dooms this classic with a replacement "updated version" as he did with the Dior Homme Sport 2017 "improvement" upon the now gone 2012 DHSport Cologne. Hopefully Dior Homme Cologne (2013) will stay with us for a bit longer as it is too good even for Dior to let it go.
