    Default Dior DUNE pre-reformulation

    Is this the Dior Dune pre-reformulation?
    ( "Dune for men" instead of "Dune pour homme" on the box
    "Christian Dior Paris" instead of "Dior"

    I got it when it first came out. My bottle says Dune Pour Homme. I don't keep the boxes so I don't know what the box said.

    +1. I've got a recently purchased EDT (2012) & I've still got the original after shave splash & a bottle of the balm too (1998) and all three bottles say "Pour Homme". I've never seen a bottle that says "For Men".
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Armani Prive' Nuances & Sable Or, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior Homme, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver & Cuir Cannage, and Chanel Jersey

    Mine says 'pour homme' on the front of the box and 'for men' on the back. Bought about 3 years ago.

    Mine too has these two inscriptions, pour homme on the front and for men on the back. Bought in 2001.

    So has Dune Pour Homme in fact been re-formulated? I had heard that the Dune marketed for women has been through a few re-formulations, but I wasn't previously aware that the men's had also.

    In my (admittedly limited) experience, I can't detect any difference between the remnants of my original EDT bottle from 1998 and the one I recently purchased in 2012.

    I have the same question. Mine is 2007, I like it anyway. But want to know, is it original formula or reformulated.

    I don't keep the boxes either -- definitely Pour Homme on the front though

    I've had a few bottles and no noticeable differences detected (clunky, or what?)

    I reckon it's got to be one of the most underrated masculines ever -- not a 'powerhouse' though

    I don't, no -- finished last bottle in the winter. No noticeable differences imo.

    Thanks!

    I wonder why on fragnatica page quite a few whine about reformulation being much weaker, maybe bad batch?
