    I'm banking on them having some in stock when I head to Vegas. I imagine they will, but I'll check the duty-frees just in case.

    Strawberrynet is a reliable source based on my experience. They might be a little more expensive than Fragrancenet, but I've had good luck with them, especially with some Chanels such as Pour Monsieur which I can't seem to find anywhere else.

    Chanel Pour Monsieur is one of my favorites, yes it is hard to find these days. I'm glad I still have half a bottle still left, going to wear it more sparely.

    The Pour Monsieur Concentree never seemed difficult to find but the non-concentree which I think you are referring to is almost impossible to find in the US. Had to get mine in Duty Free abroad during travels.

    Looking at the bottle right now, it is the concentree. Are you telling me it's still available in the US on-line? If so, where?

    Can be found on the Chanel website for $70:

    http://www.chanel.com/en_US/fragranc...8424/sku/88425

    My guess is the non-concentree you'd need to search Ebay for it to pop up, or pick it up abroad. I have personally never seen it sold in the US by Chanel.

    Cool, thanks. The bottle is totally different than what I have. Macy's does not carry it anymore, and that's where I got my last bottle, probably around 2006. Mine is also the 3.4 oz. Glad to know it's still available.

    I buy the original (though not vintage) non-concentree version from Strawberrynet. It is the only place I can find it. I've purchased three bottles of CPM over the last few years, all from Strawberrynet. I don't like the concentree version, but up until the last year or so, it could be found at department store Chanel counters.

    I had every version of DHI.

    You may find it to be extremely cloying in the heat when you use anymore than 2 sprays.

    It is a pleasant powdery, dry, coco scent... but once I discovered Bulgari Black... I knew that would be the winner for me.

    It's so easy to wear anytime of the year and it's not likely to get cloying... as for the rubber note, it's not as noticeable or pronounced as others may make it out to be.. it actually makes the fragrance.

    It's so GOOD.

    Interesting. Do you find Bvlgari Black and DHI overlap in terms of style and uses? I have MIP which many say is cloying in warmer weather yet I've found that not to be the case as long as I wear it indoors (the movies, clubs, bars, etc). Hoping I can pull off DHI in a similar way.

    Bvlgari black is a 50/50 love or hate fragrance. Do not blind but it. DHI is more safe to buy. Go easy with the spray, lower body location, under shirt and you can mute any cloying issue you may have.

    DHI is thick. I don't think it suits the summer daytime at all, perhaps the cool evenings and even then I don't think it's quite right. It's suitable for only evenings or parties IMO and in autumn (fall)/winter/spring. It shines on a romantic evening

    I honestly don't see any similarity with BB and DHI.. DHI is only for certain occasions while BB is a wear anytime, smell good everytime fragrance.

    That's just me though!

    BB to me is one of the safest blind buys on the market. Its really difficult not to like and at $30 and below, you really can't go wrong.

    I wish it came in a bigger bottle!

    Exactly. I couldn't imagine wearing this in any sort of heat or humidity.

    Thank you all for this info. I was able to get DHI shipped w/some samples for $72. I didn't have to ask for anyone though; the first guy I talked to gave me those prices. I just today received a fake DHI from Ebay, so I figured I would have to shell out a lot to get a legit one, but the Vegas boutique is by far the best way to grab one of these. Thanks again and Happy New Year!

    I agree with the other posters that mention to contact a Dior Boutique, especially the one in Las Vegas. I got mine at an airport in Europe. Not sure why it's in such a limited release in the US.

    I'm not sure why either, but the guy I talked to said it was basically a Dior boutique exclusive in the US now.

    DHI is also very difficult to find in Canada. Only place I've seen it in are some duty free stores found in some airports here. Other then that, only way is to buy it online or find someone locally maybe who has it.

    You guys are starting to worry me. I live in the caribbean where both heat and humidity abound. There is no 'winter' here in the traditional sense. Temps drop to low 70's F at night... That's as cold as it gets. Is DHI so thick and heavy that it will be unwearable here? I own and wear Midnight in Paris EDP to events I know will be indoors (air conditioned) and was hoping to do the same with DHI. I'm not going to wear it to the beach or to the gym. I was thinking it could be a great 'dinner with the gf scent' or 'indoor party scent'.

    To those that know DHI, will it work here or should I stick with Dior Homme/DHS 2012?

    I own both MIP EDP and DHI, and I think that you should be able to wear DHI under the same circumstances as you would MIP EDP. Both are fantastic scents

    If you don't mind wearing MiP, DHI shouldn't be a problem. I personally wear them both in warmer weather. I would not wear either if i'm gonna be outside all day in 90°f + heat though. But a summer night that you know you will be inside in the A/C wouldn't be an issue at all imo. And to me, they are different enough to own both. I find myself reaching for MiP more often though.

    Thanks, Jase. That provides some reassurance. Since you own both, would you say the two are similar in terms of smell/style/vibe? Is it redundant to have them both in your collection or do they offer different things?

    I think they are similar in that you would wear them for the same occasions, but I feel they are very much their own fragrance in terms of smell. Definitely not redundant IMO.
