DHI for me.
Thread: Dior Homme Intense or Chergui

DHI for me.

CURRENT TOP 5

3. Tom Ford Extreme
4. Gucci Pour Homme II
5. Terre d'Hermes
but but but fragrance connoisseurs think Chergui has IT the real deal ? .
I don't often buy into reformulation hype, but Chergui has changed a lot, and not for the better.
It's no longer that gorgeous, thick, sweet tobacco that blooms right off your arm. If we were talking black-label Chergui you'd be well-advised to choose that.
DHI is more practical, but Chergui is perhaps more interesting. So, DHI with a decant of Chergui perhaps.

Dior Homme intense
If I HAD to choose one I would pick DHI. But if I didn't have to pick one I would pick neither. Blind bought both of these and was not impressed at all so I sold them.
DHI, hands down.

Paul Smith Man (2009)
Burberry London (2006)

"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
Chergui by a wide margin.
Own both. Like both, but don't love either. Fully appreciate the compositions, but wearability of both is a little low for me. If forced to pick, I guess I would pick Chergui.
Dior Muthereffin' Homme Intense.
DHI by miles, lights out, no contest.
I have both and think Chergui is great but I don't seem to wear it often but DHI gets used more so Ill vote for DHI
My current obsessions for now
Oud Wood , Noir de Noir , DHI , Mugler Cologne , Bond No.9 Bleeker St. ,
Ramone Monegal Agar Musk & Umbra , Chanel Coromondel ,
DHI. I've reached for DHI 3x more often than Chergui.

If you want complexity I'd pick Chergui. Both scents are very comforting. I really like how I feel when I wear DHI, I feel confident and refined wearing it, a better version of myself. Chergui might be better on a date, but DHI overall is probably more versatile. I definitely wear DHI more which my girlfriend loves, though there was a time when I could mow through Chergui like no other.
I truly think both are essential for a guy to own. Perhaps you can order samples first if you only want one.
Chergui, as I like stuff that's off the beaten path. DHI, while well-done, doesn't strike me as that interesting.
Chergui is crazy good for cooler weather. Prefer DH over DHI.
Thanks guys for your participation!.

Another vote for Chergui.
Chergui over DHI. Now, if it was the original DH . . . okay, still Chergui for me, but that's close.
