As a fellow college student I know exactly what you mean. After reading and watching many reviews on both DH and DHI I bought a bottle of DH after testing and loved it. Unable to find a tester/sample for DHI, I was relatively convinced that I didn't need it seeing as how I had a bottle of La'Nuit as my going out scent... How wrong I was! When I had the extra cash from my part time job, I decided to pull the trigger and blind buy DHI. To be honest, I was apprehensive due to how controversial and passionate DHI dislikers are and the numerous reviews I watched on youtube. But after one spray, absolutely no regrets.
As someone who recently got into fragrances only about 6 months ago, my olfactory sense and noses may be a little immature but the difference between DH and DHI (I have reformulations for both) is very, very apparent. To me, DH is heavy iris with vanilla/cocoa background and DHI is heavy cocoa with iris/vanilla background. DHI is truly an intimate and sensual scent. Pardon the child-like reference but this is intended as nothing but the utmost compliment, DHI smells like sexy cocoa pebbles to me.
