Wow, just checked the batch code on the Dior Homme I got from a small boutique. It dates back to 2007 :O
When was the first formulation for Dior Homme?
Do I own a rare Dior Homme or is it just a vintage?
I think the reformulation was much later. 2010? I own a "vintage" and current formulation of Dior Homme. Both smell quite wonderful, there are a few subtle differences between the two. The main difference is the iris note. Plenty of batch threads here you can dig through to read opinions.
This afternoon I wore the recent 2012 version of Dior Homme which is really good. This evening, I'm wearing juice from a 2010 bottle. Wow, there's a huge difference between the two. The 2010 is a lot smoother, a lot sweeter and a lot more like Dior Homme Intense to be honest. I would say that the 2010 bottle of Dior Homme beats my vintage bottle of Dior Homme Intense even. Mostly because I enjoy the smoother iris and strong iris/cocoa combination that's so strong on top. Really wonderful stuff.
