    Actually, I think you'll find that Gucci pour homme II is the best designer ;-)

    I have commanded my subjects to deliver a sample of this scent to me. They are feverishly working on this order at this moment. The decree stands until a new one is issued.

    If that is the case, then how come you have another designer house ahead of DHI in your top 10? lol

    Part of me would like to try this, but another part of me is scared to, because of the terms I've seen associated with this one: girly, makeup/lipstick smell, sweet, powdery, etc. I'm pretty sure DHI wouldn't be my cup of tea.

    Only as a figurehead. The real power behind the throne is weilded by DHI.

    That's nonsense, sure the topnotes have that vibe but the heart off the scent is off the charts. The topnotes are there so that we can more deeply appreciate the rest. The topnotes confuse our senses so that we are more blown away by incredible mid and basenotes. It wouldn't be the same without the iris, lipstick, handbag vibe a the start.

    Order some small sample. You could be surprised how masculine it is in its darkness. I too dislike too sweet frags but this i don't find too sweet or lipstick-kind.

    Not really crazy about DHI, but I agree -- to each his own.

    Not a bad fragrance, but the best designer in existense, not quite.

    As long as you like it, that is most important.

    I thought the same thing and neglected going anywhere near the Dior Homme line. Big mistake. Can't tell you how many times I've been complemented when wearing DH and DHI by women.

    Prefer M7 myself, but DHI is one of the few designers that I own and enjoy on the occasions that I wear it. However, if we were to get technical and allow Costume National and Comme des Garons onto the designer list (although some consider them niche), I wouldn't choose a Dior or YSL for a first pick.

    That's exactly my first impression on DHI. My advice:

    Be a man and give it a full wearing. Don't stick your nose where you spray/apply it; smell its sillage instead, just like how others would smell it on you.

    I suggest this for all fragrances. Smelling it with wrist pushed up against nose is not the correct way of assessing a fragrance IMO.
