    Default Dior Homme and Terre Dhermes (similar)?

    I just tested Dior Homme and the first thing I thought was "Terre D'Hermes". Except it was a little less metallic and a little more bitter. During drydown, this similarity became more apparent. I'm not saying one copied the other, but if you are a fan of one, chances are you will probably like the other.

    Also, which do you like better of the two?

    Hmmm. Never thought of these as at all similar. There are some others that I think come closer to TdeH than Dior Homme for sure. These are both classics that I have and wear. TdeH is a bit more to my taste and a bit more masculine.

    I smell no similarity between DH and Terre D'Hermes. However, the drydown of TdH reminds me of Zino Davvidoff for some odd reasons.

    They both released two different concentration EDT & Parfum... I think that's the only similarity I found.

    Haha, maybe we all didn't smell some new reformulation that made Dior Homme smell like Terre d'Hermès.
    Would be an improvement for Dior Homme, though.

    One is a waxy masculine iris - the other an overtly synthetic concoction of aromachemicals with a smidge of citrus. I like neither - but they share no similarities.

    While on the topic of things that don't smell like Dior Homme......has anyone else tried Oriental Lounge by The Different Company. Not tested this on skin yet, but just smelling from the sprayer, I get a DH vibe going on. I checked and I can't see any Iris in the notes though....

    Yeah I'm sort of asking myself are there any technical similarities in matters of structure (rather than smell because these two smell nothing alike) and even in that regard they're quite different. They're not even similar in character.

    I don't know how you came up with this one. Maybe you're not smelling genuine fragrances.

    I'm REALLY surprised.

    Maybe they share a note that I predominantly picked up in Dior Homme.

    There was another guy who voted with me on big similarities. I'd like to hear his explanation.

  45. #45

    Default Re: Dior Homme and Terre Dhermes (similar)?

    No similarities at all. One is warm and somewhat sweet (DH), and TDH is dryer, woodier and cooler.

    The one similar point is that they both are fragrances

    Powdery iris/cocoa bomb versus manly rugged, dry/earthy/dirty orange vetiver. No similarities IMO.
