Funny, not an overly interesting scent but I can't recall smelling anything like it. Try to find a decant as a suggestion.
Thread: Similar to Amouage Dia Man
Just smelled Amouage Dia Man and it's excellent, but too expensive for me. Is there a similar more inexpensive scent.

Lalique pour Homme (Lion) EDT reminds me of Dia anytime i wear it. They are different, definitely, but they share some vibes.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Some have mentioned Chanel #5 to be similar. I guess its the Rose and Aldehydes. But I cant vouch for this as I haven't smelled #5 in ages.
edit : Since it was actually Dia you meant I have no idea I've not come across anything else like it. Perhaps get a decant.

I have it and like it but could not guess at anything similar. My experience with this is you should either save up and buy it, or buy 8ml decants from The Perfumed Court.
I won't go off on a rant here, but if you really like Amouage Dia Man, then you really like Amouage Dia Man. Buying something similar is not going to be the same. There are countless threads about how Cool Water smells JUST LIKE Green Irish Tweed. As such, many think there are cheaper "smell alikes" for anything they like but can't afford. I doubt this is true with Dia Man. Someone else may weigh in with something that smells similar for less money.

You might also try Pascal Morabito Or Black. Just to be clear, it does not smell like Dia Man and is not a replacement for it. But I think there's enough of a vague thematic similarity that someone who likes one may like the other. They're both fairly austere, dusty fragrances with a hint of leather and with delectable drydowns.
This is a bit different but it's dry, dusty, incensey, and yet still smooth and subdued. It's not as lush or opulent as Dia Man, but I like this scent much much more, personally.
I'm talking about Les Nez's Let Me Play the Lion.
Alternatively, just order say, 5 official samples of Dia from Parfums Raffy. That'll give you 10ml of juice for about $30. Given that you don't need to spray much, 10ml should last a long time. (The great thing about the official samples is that per ml they are essentially the same price as the bottle, so you can "buy as much as you need" without getting gouged as you normally would when you buy small amounts.)

Freddddy, you're relatively new and we don't know you well yet.
Can you say what you liked about it? It is a nice scent, but it isn't the be all, end all. What other fragrances do you like?
You seem to have a lot of posts looking for frags that smell similar to other very expensive frags. Just focus on the scents you like and don't worry what else they smell like as long as you can afford them.

This is about the designers house. About niche - i've tasted some of Montale's fragrances, some Creed, some Bond No.9, some Comme des Garsons, some Amouage, L'Artisan, Annick Goutal, The Different Company. And from these niche houses i like many scents, but i can find similar to them designers scents that i like as much as niche's with the exception of Creed Original Santal, Creed Silver Mountain Water, Creed GIT ( for me GIT is nothing like Cool Water), Amouage Dia Men, Amouage Reflection Men.
To answer your question about what i like Dia Men - it smells very masculine to me. I've posted this thread because i've smelled similar scent 10-12 years ago, but can't remember what was this scent, where i've smelled it or on whom i've smelled it.
