    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?

    I find them to be worlds apart, I like DH better.

    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.

    I actually cannot think of two fragrances that are less similar. Are we being trolled?

    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.
