Thread: Dior Homme similar to..
Just got Dior Homme in today (black stem), sprayed it maybe around an hour or so ago.
Do any of you think it smells pretty similar (after the lipstick-esque(?) vibe goes away a lot?) to F pour Homme Black?
Or perhaps my nose is not in a more-so normal state because of hookah smoke.. heh
i dnt see it
1. Dior Homme Original
2. Musc Ravaguer
3. Portrait of a Lady
4. Noir de Noir
5. L Instant Guerlain pour Homme Extreme
6. New Haarlem
7. Pure Coffee
8. Blu Mediterraneo Sicilian Almond
9. Rose 31
10. Spiritueuse Double Vanille
Nope, I can't smell any similarities. To me, the only scent comparable to DH is Midnight in Paris. F pour Homme Black is sweeter and less subtle than either DH or Midnight in Paris, but the longevity and sillage are pretty good!
Nothing I've smelled. Very unique frag.
I never smelled F pour Homme Black but first couple of hours of Eau Des Baux reminds me first hour of Dior Homme.
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
Never tried F pour Homme Black either, but this makes me even more intrigued and curious to do it.
There's a point at which DH and Deauville Pour Homme are similar

I do not personally see any analagous qualities in those mentioned. However, smell is subjective , of course, and we all have our own favorite notes and ingredients, likely because those receptors/brain cells in our scent processing center of our body are bigger/better than the others and therefore make "like those more".
In Dior Homme Intense I smell very strong similarities to the new Shalimar, "Parfum Initiale". The main bonding quality being a very dry, airous, cosmetic type smell. It's hard to describe except to say it smells "dry".
Current Top 5:
1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille
I hate using this general statement
Very unique frag that reminds me of lipstick

i get what you're saying but i dont think they are that similar, F black smells slightly spicy and is more of a winter fragrance

Don't personally see it.
Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial is similar to Dior Homme
The cacao in Dior Homme reminds me of that in L'Instant Extreme
My sales thread
I think it is similar to Gianfranco Ferre for Men.
O Polge made Dior Homme, Ferragamo F Pour Homme Black, and Midnight in Paris so you may be on to something
Top 5 for Winter:
1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
2) Back to Black - By Kilian
3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
4) Aventus - Creed
5) John Varvatos Vintage
My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."
And for what it's worth, I actually like the lipstick(esque) smell from Dior Homme. Iris?
I thought it was similar to Chanel Egoiste and Armani Code
