Reviews of Dior Homme Eau for Men

How to describe Dior Homme Eau? Milder version of Dior Homme with substantially lower dose of iris, absolutely.
DHE is very specific, elegant and likable scent. There is certain mild, pleasant sweetness that this scent emits.

To be a bit critical now, to me it's quite a feminine fragrance. DH is much more masculine, regardless of iris note being much stronger in it. DHE, when dries a bit, smells tad bit like a sugar melted in leftovers of a nice fruit tea.

Definitely a must try if you like Dior as a house in general and a must have if you love this DH line.

Comparison: I find DHE to be much more airy, less synthetic and refined version of Hugo Boss Boss Selection.

Conclusion: I didn't expect DHE to smell the way it does, however I'm not disappointed. This is a very specific and elegant scent.

Regardless of this nice review, I have to rate it neutral. I just can't see it on me. Sure I can spray myself with it, but I won't be taken seriously wearing it. I can't wear anything pink coloured, for instance, it just doesn't look good on me, doesn't suit me. Same with DHE.

The opening of Eau is the same bergamot, grapefruit, coriander accord used in DH Cologne which is a very clean and crisp citrus opening. Dior uses grapefruit here to impart a clean, crisp, watery "eau" feel which is a commonly used note in many oceanic or "Sel de" ocean fragrances for salt air. The coriander adds to the oceanic sharp dry feel but is completely sublimated into the crisp grapefruit giving it a clean ozonic edge. This crisp tart citrus is top layer of a thick iris heart note which is sweet almost as if it were covered with crystalized sugar. The essence of this scent is a sugar coated iris with a slight oceanic clean air aura. If you are looking for an iris scent, this one will do fine but realize it has this sweet coating that gives it a floating innocence - almost fairy tale sweetness. Dior Homme Eau is a sweet and dry iris scent citrus cologne that is slightly sweeter and thicker in iris than other iris cologne style scents it might be compared to. I'm thinking of comparisons to: Zegna Florentine Iris which is much less sweet, Thirdman Eau Moderne which is smoother lighter citrus/iris cologne, Petit Malin which also lacks the sweetness here, and also the dry very transparent Nomenclature Iri-Del which is in the same category as Eau but much more ethereal. Still I like what Dior has done here. I don't like this as much as Dior Homme Cologne but for an iris Eau type cologne it is a nice addition to the world of possibilities.

This is a beautiful scent. I would say this would best worn in warmer weather. Spring/summer On my skin it turns into a skin scent after 2 hours which is fine because it lasts all day and night. It lasts longer on clothes. at least a week! When people walk by you they can smell you depends on how much you're sweating of course. This will get compliments all day with this one, its not a beast mode cologne but that's alright. There is a scent bubble around you so when people walk by they will notice.

Wasn't really a fan of the DH line when I first got into the hobby but now its becoming one of my favs. DHE starts with a sharp, bright citrus and iris with the cedar notes coming in not long after. Very clean, crisp and pleasing. Later it settles down to a warm, woody floral that is very familiar and comforting. A mall scent to be sure, but smells so good, to me any way. Should be compliment bait, especially in the drydown, but isn't really a huge projector, so others might need to have close contact to smell.

This is Dior Homme for folks who don't get Dior Homme.

Once we get past the imbecilic name, this one opens with some citrusy-ozonic effect on skin, with the iris lurking. A note of coriander is listed, though nothing in it smells like coriander. The iris is the most prominent note, though a lot subdued than in Dior Homme. This is blended together with some remarkably dull faux-aquatic freshness. The base is powdery cedar, and burdened with unpleasant memories of that chemical-fresh accord.

With average projection and tenacity on skin, this release is a filler from start to end in the otherwise respectable Dior Homme line. Dior Homme Sport would be a superior alternative to this if you're looking for a 'fresh' Dior Homme.
