    Default Dior Homme Intense vs Creed Aventus

    Yes I know they are not related to each other AT ALL, but these two are the two frags that are being talked about as the "sexy compliment getter" frags.

    Between these two, which would you choose for a date?

    I tried two. Aventus is not bad, while Dior Homme Intense is Amazing. I would love to buy Aventus if its price were about less than 100USD for a 100ml bottle. So if I have to choose, I will pick Dior Homme Intense.

    This is tough because both are in my top five. Is a tie acceptable? Lol. Both are works of art IMO so I'm going go go with the one that has given me more compliments (but not by much) and that is Aventus.

    I have 2 bottles of DHI and haven't bothered to smell Aventus (yes, perhaps at my own loss, perhaps) so I cannot vote.

    Even the original Dior Homme is way better than Aventus.

    Aventus. DHI is widely available, and if you wear Aventus, you're probably not going to smell like an ex, which IMO is important! When on dates, I try to wear things in my wardrobe that are not well known outside of us frag nuts, and isn't widely available in my local Boots store. And I would stand a MUCH better chance of smelling like nobody else she knows if I wore Aventus. Then again, it would depend on the situation, setting, season, time (day or night) etc. If it were a cold winter evening and we were outside, then DHI. But for a nice meal, movies, and pretty much any type of close quarters date type situation, Aventus.

    DHI is not widely available. The smell like an ex thing is really pretentious. I'd suggest that if you rely on fragrance as a differentiator you're setting yourself up for a fall mate.

    It' not even worth comparing. Aventus all the way.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    Default Re: Dior Homme Intense vs Creed Aventus

    To try and give a sort of better answer to the question the original poster had... I have NOT tried Aventus, so I cannot compare, but I do have vintage DHI on my arm right now. I sort of blind bought the bottle a while back, I say sort of becuase I tried it very quickly on an airport on a piece of paper, along with a few other and I might've gotten the whole thing a bit confused up.

    Anyway, I'm desperately trying to like DHI, and maybe I will down the line, but at the moment my arm smells like nothing but lipstick. My girlfriend is asking me if this is not a perfume she should be stealing from me and I'm sort of asking myself the same question. Maybe my nose is just not evolved enough yet, maybe my tastes are a whee bit strange but this smells really, really feminine to me.

    Wearing this for a date? Sounds risky at best, but I have a strong conviction that in most cases the effect a frag has on you, the wearer, is by far more important then what the frag actually smells like. If DHI makes you feel good, gives confidence and gets you into the right "I like you but I don't really need you but I'll treat you nice, most of the time" attitude that most women seem to love, go with DHI.

    If however, DHI makes you wonder if you accidentally picked up the wrong bottle (say, your sisters or whatnot), as it does for me right now, I'll say wear anything else then DHI.

    Maybe a thread comparing the silver collar DHI, black collar DHI, and reformulated DHI (post Sept. 2011) to each batch variation of Aventus. This should keep someone busy for awhile.

    still to this day i agree buddy! I still think Le Male is the best. Now lets see if Dior Homme Intense will take over? We'll see. As for right now, my top 5:

    1)Le Male 2)Dior Homme 3)La Nuit De L'homme 4)Pure Malt 5)Midnight In Paris

    SO HAPPY THE COLD WEATHER IS HERE!

    My first wearing of DHI, I didn't like it either because of its iris note. But, then I learned that you only really get that lipstick vibe when you smell it with your nose close to your skin. Give it space and a normal wearing, and you'll see how good this perfume is.

    Have to agree with a few others here. I like Dior homme better than intense, still waiting to sample the Creed. Bought a back-up Homme this evening. The lipstick aspect of Homme and Intense is one of the best parts, one of the things that make it original, and for me this fragrance is not femine even though it is gorgious. My favs!

    Cheers for that. The amount of love it gets, also from people who like other things I actually *do* love, does tell me I am missing something here. I've yet to dear to actually wear it out in public, maybe I'll give it a try this weekend .
