    It is wonderful stuff. I think one of the keys is not to use too much. The sillage is intense on DHI. One spray is perfect for me. I can smell myself all day and it's not overpowering with one spray. More than that makes me feel like I've overdone it.

    Beyond any doubt, standing out amongst so many designer releases, this one succeeding to be rather unique where so many other scents may fail and/or remain too generic.

    Actually boys, ADG is the king of designers. Just ask the sales associates at any fragrance outlet who has sold the most. DHI bows it's pretty little head in shame at the one true king.

    I own it... and kinda like it as a guilty pleasure - but I would be a little reluctant to wear it in public.

    I wonder what Tropics would say about this thread.


    Anyway, I would have to agree with this:

    DHI is a good scent, I'll give you that, but it is still NO Chanel …goÔste or Dior Fahrenheit for that matter...

    dh is good but only to most of the fragrance enthusiast, if you where ask a guy on the street if they liked it they would probably say its too sweet and not a pastry sweet but like a wet smooch sweet. its great but it takes the right person to appreciate it. i am guessing this would sell better to women but its good to know this is marketed to men and not to many wear it.
    Any opinions I post here about frags only reflect MY PERSONAL TASTE and only my personal preference which could change at any moment.

    Chanel Antaeus is No 4 on the list
    Dior Homme Intense is No. 5 on same list

    Should not Antaeus then be your favorite designer scent ?

    I agree. Unless you walk around with your nose in your wrist and ask others to do the same. This isn't wine testing.

    The number beside the fragrance is not a rating but simply a quantity. My opinion on the order of my top ten changes so often that I don't bother to change the order. I suppose it would be more accurate to eliminate the numbers and just list them.

    I've not yet smelled DHI and from reading the many comments about it I am curious.
    The best designer fragrance I've ever tried is Third Man by Caron. And if you don't count Caron as a designer house, Gucci Nobile, though not currently on my signature list, is my favorite.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Imo the original vintage Dior Homme is better than DHI. But the reigning king of designer is indeed AdG.

    I don't know about that. They have a movie star in the ad campaign, they've got Guy Ritchie to do a mini-commercial, and I've seen ads (sometimes two page spreads) in GQ for DH, DHI, and DHS. I'm willing to bet Dior did the market research and the numbers were favorable. Just sayin'...

    DH is pretty close to the top on that spreadsheet from the most complimented thread...
