    Default Dior Homme Intense vs Chanel Egoiste vs Midnight in Paris

    Which of these 3 should I purchase. I'm in college but have a mature personality and dress classy. I've been hearing this raving about DHI, so I might just buy into it; however, I got a little whiff of Chanel Egoiste the other day and I really liked it. MiP have never smelled.

    I should probably add that I like gourmands the most and vanilla, coco, citrus (lemon, orange) smells are my favorite. I'm not too big on woodsy smells but I've grown to appreciate fresh musky smells recently.

    Dior Homme Intense for sure. Egoiste is nice as well. I could do without MiP, but lots of folks seem to like it here on BN.

    Wow I just re-smelled antaeus by Chanel
    Lets just add that to the mix of those three above amazing fragrance

    It kind of has a feminine touch in the dry down but masculine

    If only I could get all 4...

    Dior Homme Intense for sure!
    Of all 3 and of course 4! DHI is more classy and better in terms of longevity or projection.
    I can easily do without MiP...

    Out of those the only one I own and enjoy is the Chanel. Egoiste has really grown on me and really can be a mood changer.

    You mention that you like gourmands and vanilla. In this case, DHI is probably going to make your shortlist too The Chanel also has a bit of vanilla, but it is subdued, whereas DHI has about 500 vanilla bods in each spray. Maybe that could be your deciding factor

    Definitely sample the lot before you buy is my advice!

    Then none of the ones you mentioned fit, well maybe DHI 2007.

    Chanel Egoiste , followed by DHI . I haven't tested MiP , but I heard it's similar to Bvlgari Black which is not really my cup of tea .

    For you I think DHI would be more appropriate if you're in college .

    It could be that you'd prefer DHI though.

    Default Re: Dior Homme Intense vs Chanel Egoiste vs Midnight in Paris

    Great parfumes , truly great, all 3... My choice today would be MiP EDP , based on my passion , trying to find this one for a long time ( Edt is only available for me ) , second place go for DHI vintage, and third Egoist, but my love for Egoist is old and pure, had two bottles and maybe that is a reason why is third placed right now.

    Default Re: Dior Homme Intense vs Chanel Egoiste vs Midnight in Paris

    Oh the three I think you would enjoy DHI the most as you like gourmands.

    Personally I like MiP better.

    Default Re: Dior Homme Intense vs Chanel Egoiste vs Midnight in Paris

    Three good ones there. I would have to go with DHI, then Egoiste and last but not least MIP.

    Based on how you described yourself, I'd say Chanel Egoiste without a doubt. I like DHI and MiP but Egoiste is much better imo.

    I like all three of those, but if I had to chose just 1 it would be Egoiste.

    Neither of the 3 clicked with my taste, but of those choices I would go with DHI. Edit: I saw you now have Antaeus in the mix... If so, definitely I would recommend that one.

    To me Antaeus is totally different than the others, if you want what Antaeus offeres and that is a pure masculin scent the go with that. If on the other hand you want one of the tree my recommendation would be Chanel Egoiste. I like DHI but i like Dior homme more. MiP i have never tried so...

    If you are mature and have style, I would choose Chanel Egoiste or Antaeus. However, I feel Antaeus is a little more casual.

    Egoiste > DHI > Antaeus > MIP

    I would definitely sample MIP first. To me, the rubber note was unbelievably overwhelming and actually made my stomach turn.

    Egoiste -- it's a timeless classic masculine fragrance.

    DHI and MiP are great as well but could be too sweet, especially with body heat.

    Default Re: Dior Homme Intense vs Chanel Egoiste vs Midnight in Paris

    DHI, or consider just Dior Homme.

    Without a doubt, Dior Homme Intense. #2 Egoiste. #3 Bvlgari Black

    And remember folks, use Egoiste responsibly.

    I see it's a toss up between DHI and Egoiste. I can't say I'm surprised as both of those are amazing fragrances; however, completely opposite. One being a little daring and sweet while the other a completely masculine fragrance
    I'd purchase both but it's Christmas time, got to save for the holidays

    similar, but owning one doesnt make the other obsolete. mip is sweeter, more powdery and has a little more citrus in it. less leather and rubber, but they are still present.

    Now, this is what I wanted to hear. Thanks man.
    I love bvlgari black but def thought it could have been a little more powdery with an inclusion of citrus in it. Definitely gonna look to purchase this one after new years.

    Can DHI be repulsive in a way? I have a big family reunion for New Years and we're all gonna spend about 5 or so days together at the house, so I was wondering if it would turn off some people if I wore it around them.
    I mean who doesn't love coco during winter--but you'd be surprised

    I wouldn't use the word "repulsive," but DHI is definitely NOT enjoyed by some people. It's a fragrance that is usually reserved for more formal, specialized occasions and is usually not worn as a daily fragrance.

    Yes, many people here love DHI, but there are many here who don't care for it at all. One of the main reasons people don't care for DHI (aside from how strong it is) is because of its very strong iris note.....which many here describe as a "lipstick" smell or a woman's purse. I'm sure you know the smell. If you don't, you'll know it as soon as you smell it. It can be overpowering and usually one or two sprays is enough.

    The cocoa smell, to me, doesn't come around fully until late in the fragrance, or until the iris starts to die away. A lot of people mistakenly buy DHI for the cocoa smell and are disappointed when they are overwhelmed by the iris.

    If you're wanting a wonderful cocoa fragrance that has a decreased chance of being offensive, is enjoyed by most, and is very high quality, I would recommend Guerlain's L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme, commonly called "LIDGE" here on BN. Or, another alternative, is to buy the less potent Dior Homme for the same overall smell as DHI, but less of the oft offending lipstick note. Still a beautiful scent.

    I would pick Egoiste. I didn't care for DHI. To my nose, MiP smells like Bvlgari Black + Armani Code, and I didn't really care for Code.

    DHI to me just isn't as good as so many describe it to be. I much more prefer DH to DHI. I got my DH (original) fom Sephora and my DHI (reform) from fragrancenet. So idk maybe the juice isn't as fresh, I do get all of the notes that everyone speaks of but DH is far superior imo

    Sample all of them! I DHI after all the hype and found it to be weak and linear, but I'm a huge fan of MIP.

    Bulgari Black is simply horrendous...ground up rubber tires have always made me nauseous and it's no different with BB.

    I have all of them. DHI is love at first sight. Egoiste took some time to appreciate. MIP I did not like in the beginning, I felt that it was too feminen but I love it now. If I had to make a selection,

    1. DHI
    2.MIP
    3.Egoiste
