    Default Dior Homme Intense -WTF ?

    I blind bought it and it smells exactly like what many say - make-up and lipstick bag. I own LIDGE and was expecting something similar with a twist, but DHI just does not compare to LIDGE.

    It's feminine, and there's also something odd on my skin- when I sprayed it on my arm, it seemed to heat up.

    Is there a reason DHI is not sold widely in the US ? Possibly a chemical in the formula that's banned for use in the US, like LIDGE ?

    I think it's a great scent especially the vintage version. Vanille & Coco goodness that lasts twelve hours and it makes a excellent evening scent with its romantic vibe. With the vintage the lipstick note is only at the start and disappears quickly.

    It's ok. But yes - it is pretty feminine - mostly because it does smell like women's make-up. Not horrible, just not the best thing to wear IMO.

    Smells like a lady's bag though ..... is that a nice scent ?

    For cross dressers maybe, but why would a man want to smell like that ? I think if you're straight and wear it you'd get hit on by gay guys (not that there's anything wrong with being gay, just it WOULD attract gay men)

    ^ Not cool at all. Just because you think a certain fragrance smells feminine doesn't mean gay men are automatically attracted to it. Stop stereotyping.

    Well, in LA, 100% people would think you're gay if you wore DHI. I live here and know the culture.

    LIDGE blows DHI out of the ballpark, it is decidedly masculine and authoritative.

    Just telling the truth

    Incorrect sir. I much prefer the Dior as do many around here. I do see how the lipstick note could come off as feminine, but I still dig it.

    A DHI topic? In before TROPICS.

    Not a fan of DHI, I also prefer L'Insant de Guerlain Extreme.

    also, does not seem versatile.

    It's pretty hot in LA this week, and it's useless in the summer.

    Pure Havane is much better- works in every season.

    Dior Homme Intense is one of the best scents that Dior has ever created. A gay man's scent? Listen, this is a man's scent! The only problem with D.H.I. is that the wearer of such a fine fragrance must be absolutely certain about his manhood. Otherwise, you would feel insecure wearing such a scent. Lipstick vibe, woman's purse? Hell yeah. But guess what? When I wear D.H.I. to work, to an evening event, to a club, I get so many compliments from women. They adore it and they know that a man who feels secure enough to rock D.H.I., is a man who can also rock their world. Just my humble opinion.

    I wear Dior Homme and Dior Homme Intense on the hottest, most humid days in New York City. It smells wonderful in the heat. A cloud of wonderful scent surrounds you. Just take it easy on the sprayer.

    You have this guy here claiming he uses DHI on hot and humid NYC days ... is that believable ?

    I'm certain he works for the Dior Boutique in NYC, that incredulous statement gave it away.

    Just because someone is gay doesn't mean they like to smell feminine. There are many gays that wear more masculine fragrances than I do and I am straight.

    Not this guy again. It's a great scent, and contrary to your belief many women love it.

    Wait...is that why LIDGE is so hard to find? Because there's a banned chemical? I'll never find it =/

    Maybe due to its intriguing smell. I like the vintage DHI too much. L'Instant is much more safe.

    To me, DHI > LIDGE.

    I like both. LIDGE is definitely the most masculine of the two, but DHI is one of the sexiest scents I've ever smelled. I don't think it smells feminine. Maybe unisex, but it's definitely appropriate for a man. For comparison, I think YSL La Nuit smells more feminine than DHI, but I guess people complain about that one too. I guess I think there is something really sexy and confident about a guy who can pull off proudly smelling like lipstick. I'm that kind of guy and I love DHI.

    Now if we are going to talk about smelling "gay," I would say 1 million is one of the most un-hetero fragrance I've smelled and it's wildly popular among guys for clubbing. I don't see why a straight man would want to smell like sweet cherry candy, but that's just me.

    BTW, if you read any reviews you were already warned repeatedly about the lipstick thing. DHI is not a good blind buy.
