    Default Dior home sport 2012 or Chanel bleu

    Narrowed down to these two for a nice work scent or just drag when I'm not in the mood to wear my niche favorites.

    Going shopping today so let me know what you guy think. Performance is key since it needs to to last and of course compliment factor is always a plus

    I like both, on the gourmand-casual side I'd choose Dior Homme Sport, on the smart-casual side, if I am lookinbg for something youthful yet still trendy, contemporary stylish, I'd go with Bleu.

    Both smell great bit bleu seems to last and project better, I've sampled both formulations of dhs and it had terrible longevity

    Own both, love both. Bleu has a little better longevity / projection, but DHS is great in the summer heat. Can't go wrong with either.

    Bleu de Chanel. I like the ginger in both BDC and DHS but the current formulation of DHS doesnt last as long as the old.

    It may be surprise because I bash Bleu De Chanel here lot but I think that BDCH is better, more interesting and masculine scent than new version of DHS.
    Current TOP 7 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense
    6. Timbuktu
    7. Dior Homme

    Thanks for the replies. I keep reading that the new formulation of dhs is much better and with that added iris it is more elegant of a scent and not really a sport scent.. The idea of toned down lemon and touch of iris sounds like it would be great. The original was good but too sharp of Lemon and too much for my taste.

    Picked up Bleu this afternoon. This will definitely fit the bill for times I just want to wear something fresh and safe
    .. May sound strange but at times I get a bit tired of wearing some of my niche at times. A bit too heavy and just too much for work.

    Bleu will be great for work and just running errands around town...

    I like both. I prefer DHS though.
    Bleu is nice none the less

    between the two, it'd be DHS. Chanel Bleu is terrible imo.

    Anyone have a sample of DHS 2012 they would be willing to send me or swap? I went to 2 different places over the weekend and everyone has the old formulation and i'd prefer not to blind buy anyting. PM if you're interested. I am in Florida
