    Default 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?

    Thoughts?

    Or perhaps my nose is not in a more-so normal state because of hookah smoke.. heh

    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!

    Never tried F pour Homme Black either, but this makes me even more intrigued and curious to do it.

    Yes, I get the same thing they are similar in passing to me. The drydown is more complex in DH because of the coco vanilla vibe. F has a slightly metallic note in the opening that I kinda like.

    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".

    Totally agree! Other than that, maybe DHI? I find Dior Homme rather unique actually.
    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 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

    The drydowns are very different, though.

    And for what it's worth, I actually like the lipstick(esque) smell from Dior Homme. Iris?
