    Default Dior Homme Sport 2008 or 2012?

    I recently sampled this at Sephora but I'm not sure which one it was. I kinda liked it and I notice on Fragrancenet they have both versions for the same price. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with both and which might be the better choice?

    I'd chose the original! Citrus and ginger at their best! Sparkling, fresh and very long lasting.
    The new version has less ginger and has iris added which is a good frag as well but less fresh and smelling a little less compared to the original, imo.
    Mind that there are threads about comparing these two! Look them up!
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - Loewe: Esencia
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Revillon R
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Ferrari: Essence Oud
    - Knize Ten
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Aqua Fahrenheit

    I think they're both good, but I ended up buying the original Dior Home Sport and it appears to be my most often worn frag from my arsenal.

    If you want to figure out which formulation it was, you could always go back and take note of the code, then look it up (I believe the testers also have a batch code). Personally, I have a 2012 formulation DHS coming in tomorrow, hopefully.

    I haven't tried the current but the original is one of my favourites and an extremely underrated frag. Excellent use of citrus/ginger.

    The difference can also be seen at the sprayer top: black is 2008, silver is current.

    I have DHS from May 2011(black,black) and it turns kinda aquatic on me. The tester I tried at Sephora did not have an aquatic note at all. I believe it had the silver collar. Can anyone verify if newer (or older) formulations are/aren't aquatic?

    Thanks in advance!

    Seems like a couple of the Sephoras in NYC area only carry the silver collar, black label box. Will keep checking around.
