It is because of Dior Homme that I found basenotes. I was reading an article describing Dior Homme as smelling like leather and cognac. So a month and a half ago, I did a search and found basenotes and have now since been addicted to the site. But since then I purchased a decant and also bought a bottle blindly and today is the first time I'm using it. At first spray I noticed a strong resemblance to Hanae Mori which I previously owned and didn't care for too much (I know it's pretty popular on this site). The best my memory can do is detect a slight cocoa note and just a wee bit tad a leather to distinguish it from HM. I guess I wanted a little more leather in this, because now I'm back and forth about how much I like this one.
