In the last three days the three scents I reviewed were disgusting scrubbers. Dior Homme Cologne has its turn now – and it is the opposite experience. This is a déjà vu experience… I felt the same kind of pleasure when I reviewed the original Dior Homme over ten years ago.
The clarity and simplicity of Dior Homme Cologne is outstanding. The bergamot/ grapefruit opening is delicately blended well with with a mineralizing and cooling cardamom. I love this opening /heart accord and it lasts for a very respectable amount of time. After two or three hours, the musk from the base has taken control of progression and has waned to the intensity of a skin scent. To me the musk is a kind of let-down… but mainly because I enjoyed the original accord so much. All things considered, Dior Homme Cologne might is one the best colognes I’ve smelled in years.
Straight away I get a citrus lemon opening ..loud and sparkly but never harsh or zesty ..after an hour the musk appears giving it a soapy feel with the opening citrus playing in sync. Having tried loads of this type of fragrance I find this to be one of the better citrus colognes, simular in care and quality to chanel blanche edition. Performance is really good, sits close to the skin after an hour but doesn't fade away. Dior doing a traditional timeless barber style scent in a true dior way ..expertly blended and great quality.
Lovely & Fresh...
This is a very fresh and clean scent. It is fresh and clean in a natural smelling way (not like Mugler Cologne, as much as I love that fragrance). Yes, this is like the "niche" version of Mugler Cologne. I get lemon and lime, the grapefruit blossom, maybe even a hint of faint neroli, then vetiver and clean white musk. It's a very "white and clean" fragrance. I can't fault it within reason. It's one I would happily purchase and wear again. A really lovely scent which is beautiful, natural, and which really won't offend anybody. I believe it is a pleasing and enticing gem which all clean, professional men should try. Lovely great stuff.
Extremely well composed, safe citrus scent. I really enjoy Dior Homme Cologne.
This has to be one of the most "SAFE" fragrances ever. I can't imagine anyone disliking it. I have to do a side by side comparison to Mugler, but I am quite sure this one is better. Scent alone I give it a 5/5. Too bad the performance on it.
I will 100% get either this or Mugler Cologne.
