    Default I prefer Dior homme reformulated

    Gosh, I recall all the panic when the house of Dior announced that they were reformulating this one. It was like mass hysteria..people stocking up on soon-to-be vintage versions, buying them at ridiculous prices online. I must say that the only difference I can smell is that the vintage has a more intense lavender opening, coupled with that blast of alcohol and a distinct OAKMOSS note. Yup, I believe the vintage had oakmoss. The lavender note in the vintage reminded me of D&G classique and Eternity for men. The current version is more gourmand. I also find the reformulation much better balanced and richer. I really cannot recommend the vintage version over the new one.

    I like all versions of this scent equally.

    I have not smelled reformulated one on my skin (they have just vintage tester in local store) but just yesterday I resampled vintage again on my skin because I could get vintage bottle from 2008 online and rather cheap. Its nice scent but I prefered reformulated DHI over DH (vintage) which I also sampled on other hand. If reformulated DH smells closer to DHI then I think I would also prefer reformulated DH, so there is no point for me for stocking up vintage DH (which I already have as a 40ml travel version from 2010).
    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

    They are all great in different ways.

    2. Serge Lutens Chergui
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
