DH, DHI, DHS, DHC = u're done bro, go find some waves.
DHI or JXXV, is win win.
I'd pick up the entire Dior Homme line. Problem solved.
I used to be the same way. Hated vetiver. I'm not sure what frag changed my perception of it, maybe it was Hermes Vetiver Tonka. It's still not my favorite, but I don't hate it anymore.
Ack!! Watching The Sopranos and I see on Christopher's dresser a bottle of Kouros.
Straight to Heaven
Memoir, do it, no regrets.
You're set, sally forth. And pick up that Dior Homme when chance permits.
Le Male is all lavender and vanilla on me, Reflection has no lavender or vanilla. I'll say that they smell similar at the very top, like literally the first few seconds and then the rest is pretty...
Wear no frag, man. Not to Bikram yoga. Not only are people are gonna be gasping for air but it can be distracting to people trying to find their center. Put whatevs in your gym bag and musk up...

I'd get samples of each and test...
That'd stink if they kill GPHII. They killed Envy though, and Envy is/was the bomb, so I gotta think nothing is safe, save Guilty line, of which, GGI is not bad, but it doesn't make up for PH, PHII...
Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Talked to a SA at Dior here in Vegas and she told me it's coming out soon and they'll have it. I got my bottle from ebay.
1. Dior, in the Palazzo, in the Venetian, in Las Vegas
2. Absolutely. Might as well snag Dior Homme Sport while you're at it. It's different from DH/DHI but great.
I'll recommend you spend a little time with the Dior Homme line.
Test the CK Shock to find out if it sticks around on your skin. Otherwise, A*men or Le Male.
None. What I like I on broads and what I like to wear are two different things.
Your wife knows best. Give it to her, enjoy it that way. Or don't, lolz.
Armani Aqua Di Gio
Dior Homme Sport
Mont Blanc Individuel
Chanel Platinum Egoiste
Bond Brooklyn and/or Bleecker
That's tough, I own 'em both; Pure Havane see's more action but LIDGE is probably a better frag.
They don't seem similar to me.
Reflection & Honour shine in the heat. JXXV does surprisingly well on really hot days, kinda couldn't believe it; I thought it'd be a cloying monster when it's like 110 out, but it was nice.
Got it & dig it.
+1, and it's connected with a walkway to Crystals, which has Skins 6/2, which has By Kilian, Montale, Amouage, Creed, and a few others.
Bleu or Sycomore
On me, the tobacco is a sustained note that lingers until the late dry down, and ends as a spicy vanilla. Thats unfortunate you don't get more than 20 minutes of the tobacco.
I'd wear something in-tune with the horse's name(s) I'd be betting on.
Mont Blank Individuel by miles, lights out, game over, /thread.
TV. Excellent smell, quality, projection & longevity, IMHO there is no down side, save the price point. B2B is nice but it gets a little to sweet and powdery for my tastes, and it's absurdly priced.
I luv the Memoir, it's killer. Unless you've got deep pockets, you're gonna wanna always test drive spendy frags to make sure they work for you. I'd hate to hear that you did something like...
I'd lay off it and come back to it in awhile. No doubt about it JXXV is a killer frag, Reflection is hella nice as well. Memoir might be my fav though. I'm never able to decide which of those...
DHI by miles, lights out, no contest.
OP, nothing you said makes me think a it's fake. Why do you think it's fake?
Thinkin' of pickin' up Honour. hmmmm
OP, all your pick are good choices. I voted for Issey Miyaki.
True, fire alone might not do the job.
OP, for what it's worth, I also don't like Black Aoud because of the rose note. I've never had an issue with projection or longevity with any of the Montale frags I've tried, including Dark Aoud.
Aoud Musk is similar to Nasomatto Duro. I don't own Dark Aoud but I've sampled it once or twice and like it and am thinkin' about pickin' it up. So, yeah, I like you're picks.
I like the Dark Aoud and might snag a bottle down somewhere down the line.
When I see a bottle of Gucci Envy, I snag it. So far this strategy has yielded three 100ml bottles. Cipher that against the other bottles I own of everything else and I'll die before I run out of...
lolz, I remember that scene. "Why don't you call for help in your radio mic, you f**kin' rat?"
Snag that DHS.
to open it:
to close it:
You're the person who decides if it's formal or not. Just for the sake of conversation OP, what would you consider to be a formal frag?
In all likely hood, probably Armani ADG.
Whatever "fell off the truck." Or maybe some of this:
Dior Homme Sport
Dior Homme Cologne
Bleu de Chanel
Did you use 'em or just liquidate some stock?
I could work with just the Dior Homme line; between DH, DHI, DHS & DHC I feel all seasons, situations and scenarios are covered and if ya' shop around you could get a bottle of each for less than a...
Glad to see you cats agreeing with what I was saying in the other thread where people were saying the two don't smell similar, which is nonsense. Anyhow, I'm happy to have Meharees in my arsenal and...
It's a good idea and I've considered it myself. Glad you dug the Dior Homme Sport.
Haven't smelled Tar but I have smelled Garage and it doesn't smell like leather or cigarette smoke.
Just my opinion, but it's no worse than over-applying any other dense frag.
I think you'd be better served by Reflection or Honour as I find Lyric to be kind of cloying.
Mine wasn't in shrink but it was in one of those clear anti-theft boxes. Now that ya' mention I don't get big longevity or projection from 360 Red.
Of the one's you've listed, I'd say ADG. While you're smelling frags, you might as well check out Dior Homme Sport, Bleu de Chanel and YSL L'Homme. Let us know what you land on.
I'd roll with the DHS.
Huh, I don't see it. DH/DHI is one of absolute favorites and MiP is one of least favorites. I'm not even sure why I have a bottle of it as I never ever wear it. I must've been intoxicated, lolz.
DHS by miles
--- Christian Dior Homme Intense.
Dior @ the Pallazo in the Venetian, Las Vegas
--- L'instant De Guerlain Extreme.
not available in the US
--- Somewhere i can sample Amouage
A few 100% blind buys that I totally dig are:
Rochas Man Intense
Montale Aoud Musk
Those are all nice for warm weather. Personally, when it's hot as hell out, VIW is one of my most reached for frags. Are you leaning towards one in particular?
I consider some of my frags to be night time frags but will from time to time wear 'em during the day.
