  1. Re: Two More Fragrance Turn Arounds: Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme abd Dior Homme Sport

    Oh, then I agree. I prefer it over the original...I actually can't stand the original to be honest.

  6. Re: Two More Fragrance Turn Arounds: Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme abd Dior Homme Sport

    There are 2 Issey's which I can actually stand; Sport and 2009 Summer.
    DHS is nice, I don't use it often but that's only because I have too many others to choose from.
  7. Re: Do all Dior Homme bottles have "CD" engraved?

    Thanks Ken. My bottle will half-spray but it still comes off as a cloud. Easiest way to explain it is it feels like a "pump" unlike most sprayers.
