    Smile Reformulated Dior Homme VS Reformulated Dior Homme Intense?

    Hey guys, I wanna get my first Dior bottle. Been reading a lot about these two fragrances, I have tested DHI in the shop and I really liked it (however I've forgot to check if the tester was the reformulated version or not ). Anyhow, let's get on with the main question, from your opinion, how would you rate these two fragrances out of 5 in these scales:
    - Longevity
    - Projection
    - Versatile
    - Scent
    - ...Sex Appeal

    Plus a mini question here: If the original formulation wasn't existed at all (so you can't compare), would you still think/rate of these fragrances the same way as you are now?

    For me, I'd give them both 4 down the line. To your second question - yes.

    I have not smelled reformulated versions of both yet, so my opinion might be worth **** to you but judging from vintage DH and first reformulation DHI it would be:

    Longevity:
    DH 3/5
    DHI 5/5

    Projection:
    DH 3.5/5
    DHI 3.8/5

    Versatility:
    DH 3/5
    DHI 4.7/5

    Scent:
    DH 5/5
    DHI 4.9/5
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Creed Aventus


    TOP 3 cold weather:

    1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. Dior Homme

    Warning: Newbie response

    Make sure you test Dior Homme on your skin and give it a good solid wear (several hours). As everyone mentions there is a strong iris note, which does smell exactly like lipstick. I love this fragrance, but that lipstick note starts making me feel nauseous after about the seventh hour. As for your scoring, in my experience it ranks very strongly on all your characteristics but I haven't discovered if it has any sex appeal yet. FML.

    And a big YES to your second question. I have both vintage and reformulated for DH and honestly, both are good. As for DHI, i only have the reformulated and im loving it.

    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense

    I tested out the new dior homme and fahrenheit last week, they were very light and watered down compared to the 2004 versions, but that is a good thing if you have sensitive skin.
