    Sampled it a few days ago, it is a watered down Dior Homme Sport (2008 version), with a bit more citrus added. Longevity is average, projection is mediocre at best (did 3 sprays in the same spot on my wrist to get these results; so i guess that compared to the usual spraying, both longevity and projection are awful - for just one spray in a spot).

    Grapefroud!

    The bottle looks nice and minimalist. The fragrance sounds... just minimalist.

    I keep hearing people say that they expected more from this one and that it's nothing more than a citrusy light summer fragrance. What were people expecting? A heavy winter masculine hit from Dior? I think it's pretty obvious from the note breakdown how this one was going to to be and there is nothing wrong with a relaxing cool strictly seasonal fragrance. Pretty clear thats what Dior was aiming for.

    Going simple is sometimes the way to go, great to visit this classic cologne style theme.

    Keep the reviews coming!

    The original version of Dior Homme Cologne is a spectacular transformation of the original EdT into a sort of modern cologne effect. It has all the best parts of Dior Homme EdT, reimagined as a cologne - lighter, more refreshing - but still retaining the distinctive "make up bag" notes. It's in a large, beautiful version of the original bottle. Have to say, what I'm reading here is not getting me too excited. . . but I'll end up springing for it nonetheless, since I love DH, DHI, and original DHC so much. An encouraging development: I keep reading that the new formulation of DH Sport is more like the original EdT. Now that is a spectacular idea. I own and kind of like the original sport version. I'll end up getting the reformulated sport sooner than later.

    A bar soap version of original DH would be most welcome. Calling Dior. . .

    I think people are expecting some thematic connection with the pillar 'Dior Homme'. All the more shameful since there is a previous Cologne version which has that thematic connection, but which this new version totall lacks, and is now a more generic fragrance amongst the 1000s released in a year. I would ask, why not a new name for such a fragrance. Even a flanker of a flanker would be better... Dior Homme Sport Cologne?

    To the people saying a "lighter version" of Chanel AHS Cologne.... seriously?

    That stuff is as light as it gets...smells like 10% lemon juice, 10% alcohol, 80% water.

    I have two samples and I think this is very nice. This was never created to wow anyone. François Demachy excels at fruity/citrus tops with musky bases that's the style of many of his frags. The aim was clean, fresh and minimalist frag and in that respect it's a success. Dior PR "A pure signature based on notes of Calabrian Bergamot, Grapefruit Blossom and White Musks. Dior Homme Cologne, an essential luxury that dares to be radically simple." This is actually an EDT and the longevity for me was excellent.

    These cologne versions are designed with transparency in mind. Shouldn't really surprise you especially since you live in Florida. This is pretty much the type of climate these are made for. Problem I have is that if they're going to charge high prices they ought to double the size of the bottles.

    The original cologne lasted for all of 15 minutes and was little more than a massively watered down DH. I never understood the love for it.

    I can still smell it on my clothes a full day after. And again people this is an EDT

    I own Guerlain L'Eau and I have to do the same thing when I wear it to get any longevity at all on it. Just because it's labeled an EdT doesn't mean anything with these cologne fragrances. If anything they're actually weaker than most EdC's I've tried an owned. A prime example is the EdC Bergamotto Marino which lasts all day (on the skin) and projects better than most EdP's.

    Concentrations only truly make sense in relation with each other for the same kind of formulation.

    That is to say, a Dior Homme Cologne EdT is likely to be more intense and lasting compared to a (hypothetical) Dior Homme Cologne EdC, but is less intense and less long-lasting compared to (again hypothetical) EdP and extrait versions of Dior Homme Cologne.

    It is no use having an extrait version of an eau de cologne (genre, not concentration) type perfume consisting mainly of citrus oils and little base materials (such as sandalwood, or oakmoss, for example). The extrait is only going to be more intensely citrusy but will still be quite short-lived.

    I absolutely agree I was just clearing it up in case anybody had any assumptions of this being an EDC. Even if it was the longevity is still great.

    I sampled this today, and I have to say WOW. First, it's got good staying power even on exposed skin without a pulse point (my hand) and it smells ... well, divine. Also, it's been on a pretty dry hand now for at least six hours, still going very strong. I don't really know how you can get bad longevity out of this one. Also, the simplicity is what attracts me to it. It's just so damn good, uncomplicated and smooth.

    I'd like to draw an analogy to Dior's Prive collection and Cologne Royal. To me, Dior Homme Cologne is actually similar, or may even be better. I'll try to get a head-to-head between the two going, I just have to aquire Dior Homme Cologne first - and I'm pretty sure I will. Not much have exited me lately, but this gem is surely damn good. That grapefruit working with the musk is just simple, classy and great.

    I have been yearning for grapefruit recently. Is the grapefruit a dominant note? Does it resemble DG the one?

    I find the grapefruit dominant at least for the first hour, after which it mingles with the musk to create some sort of smooth, chilled out cologne that stays on for ages (at least on me).

    You should try it out yourself - I can't promise anything, and if grapefruit tickles your fancy, I suggest Terre D'Hermes as well, but this cologne is pretty damn good and grapefruity in my book.

    Would love to see it in the basenotes register.

    After a couple of minutes of good smelling citrus, it goes down hill to this generic and bad smelling fresh scent. A unworthy release from Dior again

    I like this one. Simple, wearable, and lovely. Bright citrus + smooth musk combo. And it last forever.

    I'm loving my bottle. Minimalist, clean citrus musk. My favourite part of this frag is how damn natural it smells. Excellent longevity also from this frag.
