    Default Which Dior fragrances for men are worth to try

    Obviously Dior Homme/Homme Intense and Fahrenheit are most popular Dior (male) Fragrances on basenotes. Even if I dont see myself wearing Fahrenheit and hardly can find opportunity to wear Dior Homme I really love and appreciate both of them as a real masterpieces of fragrances.

    Except of this 2 is there anything else from house of Dior that is must buy/try?

    What are your favourite Diors for men?
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    Bois d'Argent is the only one I like that I've sniffed so far.

    In addition to those already mentioned, Dune and Jules are also very good.

    Eau Noire and Ambre Nuit are both pretty incredible.

    If you can find it, give Jules a try - a rather sexy scent.

    Well, all of them! But, of course, some are better than others.

    Dune pour Homme is a neglected gem. It has a strong fig note to it,
    it's the perfect Dior for younger men, or newbies, as it is quite easy
    'to get'!

    Jules is a wild beast. Like Fahrenheit it's a love/hate frag, but if you
    love it, you'll love it with a passion. Even though it's not discontinued,
    it's still kinda hard to get a hold on - it's actually quite rare.

    Fahrenheit Absolute is the newest member of the Dior mens line.
    It's a strong, sexy frag with lots of oud.
    It's miles away from the other two Fahrenheits, but still worthy of
    baring the same name.

    Even though they are not my style, you should also check out the exclusive
    colognes. Especially Eau Noire has quite a big fan base.

    Midnight Poison is a cult fave amoung some men. It's really quite masculine.
    Hypnotic Poison can also be worn by a man, if he has some spunk that is!
    The opening of Dolce Vita is über feminine, but soon there followes a nice
    male friendly drydown. Just don't overdo it.

    Most of the classic Diors can be pulled off by the right man, too: Dioressence;
    Diorissimo; Diorella; and Eau Fraiche.


    What are your favourite Diors for men?
    Dune PH; Fahrenheit; Fahrenheit Absolute;
    Dior Homme; Dior Homme Intense.

    Agree.

    Eau Sauvage is next on my list to try.

    Eau Sauvage is a staple in any well-rounded wardrobe.

    And Le Grand Duc, our resident Dior expert, is right about Hypnotic Poison. I bought it for my wife, and it smells great on her, but I swipe a tiny spray now and then too. Yes, it does work reasonably well for guys.

    Dior Homme Cologne is extraordinary. Best of the DHs. Hard to find, but worth tracking down.

    Dior is one of my favorite designer houses, from as far back as pre-Basenotes I owned Eau Savage, Eau Savage Extreme and the original Fahrenheit. More recently they have hit it out of the ball park with the flanker for DH, Dior Homme Cologne and of course the colognes Eau Noire, Ambre Nuit and Cologne Blanche. Their unisex Escale a Portofino is also quite beautiful. And of course, their vintage feminines (especially the parfum formulations): Diorella, Diorissimo and Poison.

    The Escales are not marketed as unisex,
    but yes, they're male friendly!

    I have two Dior fragrances: Dior homme and Eau Sauvage. Love them both, but would recommend Eau Sauvage. It's classic, masculine scent, must have any wardrobe.

    Pretty much any of them. This is a good house.

    The only exceptions would be certain members of the Higher range. And Dior Homme Sport.

    I think Dior Homme Cologne is very poor. It smells like a watered down version of the EDT and then vanishes after about 30 minutes. Don't bother with that one!

    Dior Homme Intense is gorgeous. Bois d'Argent and Ambre Nuit are my other two favourites!

    As we are approaching winter in the northern climbs, Dior Homme Intense and Fahrenheit Absolute are two that MUST be in your wardrobe. They are two of the very few 'stand outs' of the last 3 years and from both from one House. That's a rare thing these days.

    Pretty much their entire line is very good apart from anything labelled Farenheit. Oh and Dior Homme Sport, which I think is a pointless derivative flanker.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    More support for:

    Fahrenheit Absolute (better than the original) and Jules! Test these two on skin, not just paper, because they really bloom when you're wearing them. Eau Sauvage is also excellent, but I prefer his sister Diorella. Overall a very good house...
