    Default Ferre for Him (2007) or the not so cloying / femenine Dior Homme EdT

    Ferre for Him (http://www.basenotes.net/ID26127192/reviews.html) seemed at first a corrected version of Dior Homme in terms of reduced cloyness; top notes are very similar, specially for the kind of leather present, and the iris, which is absent. Still, Dior wannabe lovers be aware that analogies stop there. The sweetnes, so common in many contemprary scents, is annoying but not to an extent as in Dior Homme EdT, but fortunately for those that don't wan't to be noticed for the scents being worn by them, this might save them from oblivion or sudden attacks by passersby: Ferre projection is limited.

    However, being Dior Homme available as an EdC (the best of the bunch, IMHO, but fleeting) and EdT (cloying and femenine) and an Intense version (less iris, more leather, second best, IMHO), you might as well try one of these three and make up your mind before choosing Ferre.

    I found Ferre to be "run-of-the mill". Nothing about it made me want to purchase it.

    I personally do not find Dior Homme EDT to be cloying or feminine in any way. I really like it - as well as the Cologne and Intense versions.

    The Dior Homme Cologne is, if I read on here correctly, actually an EdT, not an EdC. Regardless, I could still smell it after a 13 hour work day, so it must have a little longevitiy!

    You are right regarding Ferre for Him, it is quite ordinary. I'd better get DH EdC and Intense.

    Regarding your remarks about DH EdT, I tested it among a group of four and we all agreed the lipstick / purse notes were evident. Still, I liked it, but the those trying it spoke of a sweetness that proved off - putting. I did agree on this, but since "chacun a son gout" I better forget about impressions.

    I tried it and went away in minutes... I could not percieve anything. But, as I said, tried it: I did not apply amounts of it the same way I would if I were the happy owner of a DH Cologne bottle. So, I must take your word - LOL ... yet another one in the "to buy" list.
