    Speaking only for myself, I don't care for it at all.

    It's one of the few fragrances I've bought and subsequently given away. Don't get me wrong - it's not terrible, it's just quite ordinary smelling. I have Gucci Pour Homme which I really like and Dirty English just smells like a poor version of it. Almost like the Gucci minus 2-3 notes. The sillage & longevity were terrible also. I suggest you smell it before buying (if possible) and if you like what you smell - buy Gucci PH instead!!!! You'll love it....!

    It is mediocre as Derbyman said, but to answer your questions...

    Will the girls like it? It has a honey and leather vibe with hints of tobacco in a clean way, it is pretty likeable.
    What do I think of it? I have it, I like it, but longevity and projection on me are not great. Was $20 at TJ Max and I wanted to see what the hype was about.
    Does it remind me of another fragrance? I can't really put a finger on it, but I would highly recommend going with DK Unleaded or Fuel if you can find it...smells much better and has Amen longevity.
    Is it worth buying? I keep this one in my car and use it every once in a while. It smells clean and earthy and it is worth a $20 for a large bottle.

    Was an immediate re-sell for me. I remember it to be weak and that it reminded me of Eternity at some point (probably the mandarin orange, apple combo...the sandalwood, the vetyver...they actually seem to share quite a few notes, now that I'm looking at the pyramid. Perhaps my nose was quite right).

    It's called the "cheap version" of Gucci pour Homme, and very, very similar to "Carbone" de Balmain.
    Smoke, wood, plus a sort of "industrial smell" with artificial and synthetic odors.
    If you find it a good price grab it, since it's discontinued.

    I think you are right and anything that smells like Eternity would need to be moved on quickly imo -- real skanky top notes as well

    similiar to gucci pour homme and tommy bahama. cedar/incense based but lacks the longevity of the 2 prior. a good buy but tommy bahama is better for the price and gucci is triple the price but far more superior..

    okay, but bahama and Gucci is way more expensive right :P? , but do you Think its Worth it, its sale on that fragrance 65% on a cheap website here in sweden, it does cost 25 $ for 50ml , maybe its Worth a try, if it smells like shit then i can throw it away, when its so cheap. if i just look at the price.

    if i can see what all Thinks its like nothing special with this fragrance, but its Worth the Money?

    I own and love Dirty English. Longevity is a little weak, but something about the scent reminds me of my childhood up at the lake. One of the best bottles on the market also. Great value IMO.

    I don't really think this would be a favorite among the female crowd however.

    Fragrance for bad boys...if you like Dior line up probably you won't like this .

    Bad. Not even worth the discounted price that it's going for these days.

    ive never tried any dior fragrance , but i really like Armani code and le male and ive used much sweet fragrances i can say, but maybe it could be fun with a lil bit more masculine and not just sweet parfumes.

    For me a very puzzling scent. It's okay, and it doesn't seem to last long or project much as far as I can tell. Which I didn't mind given the $20 I paid for a tester of it (less the $10 voucher I used towards that $20).

    BUT - when I talked to the girls in the perfume shop, they genuinely seemed to think it was loud and strong.
    And my wife was annoyed with me one night over the strong stuff I was wearing, as she was trying to watch TV - and I couldn't smell any of the Dirty English I'd sprayed on earlier in the day.

    Interesting the less than positive comments above. Times change, but I remember when it first came out it was the scent on the lips of a lot of people around here, and it was being recommended a lot in numerous "please help me" threads - so much so that I made an effort to locate and test it to see what so many were going on about.
    Regards,

    Great bottle, nice scent - if a little ordinary. In my experience the 20 somethings really like this one!

    Worth it for a discount, not for 50$ +

    maybe its Worth a try on Another maybe disqualified fragrance instead, l'essence de Cerruti, seems to be hard to find, but maybe its better!

    Heard a lot of things about it, if you close your eyes and forget its brand name,
    Im sure it would good marks in your eyes.

    okay, its like 1/3 who likes it and the other Thinks its bad, so it would be a risky blindbuy :P

    It was a meh for me, but I sure watched out where I was spraying it because it will stain fabric.

    I own it and like it, but I never wear it because I always end up reaching for other scents instead, such as Gucci Pour Homme 1, M7 Oud Absolu or even Fahrenheit.

    I'm not saying Dirty English smells like those though. I'm just saying that it's a nice dark scent, but I have other dark scents I tend to reach for instead.

    If you enjoy oud, or if you want a cheap way to find out if you like oud, Dirty English is a great place to start.

    ahh ive done my decision, i skip this fragrance and go for body kouros instead, a lot of positive Reviews on it and only 7$ more and its a 1,7 oz bottle , the same as Dirty English, so thats maybe a better buy!

    It's a nice fragrance IMO, dark woody leathery. Discontinued but luckily the price for a bottle is very low atm so it offers good value for money. I bought mine cheap too, i wouldn't want to pay full retail for it though. FWIW, I bought mine blind as it wasn't sold here in shops. No regrets, I still reach for it from time to time in the cooler months.

    Carbone didn't remind me of DE. BTW, Carbone turns very sweet in the drydown, whereas DE doesn't.
