    Default Dior Homme Intense Alternative

    Dior Homme Intense (Original 2007 Formulation) is my favorite fragrance of all time. I was just wondering if there are any, especially niche, alternatives that can match up to this masterpiece of a fragrance. I've tested Iris Ganache by Guerlain and it is similar, but not exactly the same. IG is more feminine while DHI is more masculine and more gourmand. Can you guy,or gals, recommend any good niche alternative(so Im guessing frags that have the iris+cocoa+vanilla combo) to DHI, should I ever run out of my 4 bottles

    Musc Ravageur's drydown and Pure Havane in my opinion. I agree with you though Dior Homme Intense is one of the best creations in fragrance...a true masterpiece..

    L'instant de guerlain extreme has a strong cocoa/vanilla which a lot of people adore in DHI. Just no iris opening. So I guess I can live with that

    I own dhi vintage and pure havane, but I don't find them similar. So far I haven't come across anything that smells like DHI except for dior homme of course.

    Olivier Polge's Midnight in Paris EDP -- thick, leather instead of iris, very good sillage and incensy vibe throughout its scent life (10-12+ hours on my skin).

    This one is closer than all mentioned: Armani Prive - La Femme Bleue. It's like a perfect mix of DH and DHI, but takes a slightly more feminine turn towards the drydown. It's also grossly overpriced.
