    can you compare your new formulation of DH to your formulation of DHI? and which DHI do you have?

    But thinking of what it reminds me of...

    What do you guys think about Dior Homme?

    I think girls should really dig this on you haha
    It depends on the way you smell it. If you stick your nose where you sprayed it, you'll smell mostly its dominant note (iris). On the other hand, if you give it space from your nose and smell its sillage instead, you'll realize how beautiful the iris note smells like -- and blended with the cocoa note in Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense makes it even better and makes it more masculine.

    Only tried DHI: I first tried it on a tester strip, and I totally got a pronounced make up vibe, which really put me off & I decided I couldn't live with it.
    One day I decided to test it on my skin and the make up vibe was almost non existent, which really suprised me, and it dried down to a gourmandy cookie dough smell. I'm beginning to warm to it now.

    I have the reformulated DHI. Reformulated Dior Homme smells brighter and more floral than the new DHI. New DHI is a bit darker and has the cocoa drydown sooner. The cocoa in DHI is nicer than DH too.

    Apparently, it can smell like "makeup" to those who cannot distinguish among the notes. It takes time and a bit of effort to do this, and some people don't want to put in the effort. Perhaps they have a lot of other things to do, so I'm certainly not saying this as a criticism.

    Yeah I definitely got the makeup connection. Not makeup in general, but lipstick. The more I tried it, I got less and less of a lipstick impression. Now I don't get that at all and love it.

    My experience exactly.
