    Default Which Dior Fragrances Do You Think a Man Can Wear?

    Hello Ladies!

    I have been looking at some decants and samples (mostly vintage) from the ladies Dior section on the Crystal Flacon, but don't know which ones are appropriate for men and not to fruity/floral. I know I really want to try Midnight Poison, but haven't found a decant of it yet. Please give me your advice.

    Best Regards!

    Vintage Diorissimo is a rich, spring like lily of the valley with a nice civety deep background. Vintage Diorella is an orange melon chypre. Both fantastic on a man. Unfortunately, the modern versions are not as good, and vintage costs a fortune.

    Apart from that, Dune (current one as well) has a dusty chocolate gourmand drydown which is now more common in masculine perfumes than in feminine ones.

    +1 on Diorella (though I'm not a lady)

    I have been told by several reputable persons that Midnight Poison is the most masculine, ladies perfume, put out by the Dior house. In fact, it is said that MP should have been released as Poison Pour Homme.

    I got a blast of Midnight Poison on paper from Dior on the way home - an hour in and I know I could wear this quite comfortably. My guess was a light touch of ginger and tobacco might be involved but after looking at the reviews here I see these aren't mentioned in the notes list at all. Whatever - the few reviews I skimmed seem to point in the same direction I am picking up on, it has a sense of darkness that could be construed as masculine. If you gave me this card blind I would pick it as some relatively inoffensive 'new, modern' scent for young guys but without the annoying cedar screech that seems to be de riguer these days . . . go for it.

    The Dior Prive line is choc full of good stuff if you get near that, of course. Granville is the best thing for guys to come along in ages.

    Eau Noire for sure.

    I'd suggest trying Diorella, Midnight Poison and Dior Addict.

    I smelled Miss Dior Parfum yesterday, and my immediate impression was that it was easier for a guy to wear than the new Eau Sauvage Parfum, which may be in the men's aisle, but is much more "out there". Miss Dior Parfum was actually rather subtle in comparison. BTW, that Eau Sauvage Parfum is *great* stuff!

    Vintage Diorella makes a terrific masculine but I also believe a man can pull of any fragrance he likes.

    Gardens, try them all and decide. For the most part, most scents that might be unisex (IMO) are:

    Dior Homme (LOL!)

    Midnight Poison EDP
    Hypnotic Poison
    Miss Dior (vintage, and not the newly named one)

    The first Poison, with its strong tuberose, may be too strong for most men.

    Any way you choose, wear what makes you happy.

    Totally agree with Alfarom.

    1) Dune. What a wonderful, unique and unisex amber. A warm amber aquatic? Whatever it is, it sure is fun.

    2) Addict. Nice toasty vanilla.

    3) Diorella, though I like Eau Sauvage better for a fresh green cyphre...the two are similar.
