    Didn't get one either when I purchased it online weeks ago. Could be part of a new promotion they're having for the scent in certain markets.

    Very cool little atomizer. I did not get that from Macys online.

    Looks like Eau is now being sold on Dior.com. Not sure if it was on there previously. This leads me to believe the exclusivity of Macy's is being opened up a bit? (I remember calling DH San Francisco a few weeks ago and them saying they didn't carry Eau, so I'm assuming Dior.com didn't sell it until just recently).

    I am getting a lot of compliments wearing this one.

    Same here.

    I had an attractive young blond woman in her early 20's tell me I "smelled nice" when she was standing a few feet away from me in a store the other night. She and I and another woman were talking amongst ourselves, and she suddenly moves right next to me (within a foot) and said "You smell so good, I'm standing right here next to you".

    So yeah....if you're a man and like women complimenting the way you smell, this is a good fragrance to check out. If you despise mainstream smelling scents and want something a bit more daring, bold and weird...then this one won't be for you.

    Smell brighter and better than DHI. It's not as good as DHS. Somewhat generic to me.

    Well, I finally gave this a full wearing today. As others have mentioned, it smells like a somewhat watered down version of DH with a quick blast of citrus at the top. I found it pleasant enough but it effectively became a skin scent in under two hours, and that was with 7 sprays. The weather is supposed to get into the low 80s by Thursday so I'll give it another go when it's warmer but for now, I'm thoroughly unimpressed.

    Wearing this to work for the second day in a row and I've decided that it's a very good scent in that regard. Light and well put together, a classy clean. You could make the argument that it's boring, but if you don't need an adventure in every fragrance you wear, this could work for you. The ingredients are of a good quality. Longevity isn't great, but it's not terrible either. And the amber in the drydown, while light, smells really good.

    No complaints here.

    I've tested this out a few more times since my last post in this thread and unfortunately, I still don't get more than 2 hours out of this one. Unfortunately for me, this one belongs in the same category as Burberry London: A great scent with such poor longevity that it's not full bottle worthy.

    Ditto, quite good longevity with the new Eau. 8+ hours consistently.

    I've been on a Dior Homme kick this week, and have worn everything in the line at some point so far, except DHI, which I'll probably wear tomorrow with the cooler weather that's coming in. I'm really loving this week, I even found it in my heart to enjoy DHC after the gym last night.

    I think DHE hangs right in there with the rest of the family, it's a quality frag. Kind of the "Bleu de Chanel" of the Dior Homme line, if you will. I heard that analogy from another poster and it totally makes sense to me. Whether that reference makes it a good frag or bad one depends on your perspective, but I think it's a vote of confidence.

    I envy those that got good longevity out of this one! I mean, I got ok longevity, roughly 7 hours. But it went super flat on me after just 2 hours. Girlfriend loved the top of this one but I think I'm going to pass on this or maybe go back to Macy's for another test. I did like the Dior Homme w/ Fierce-Legend opening, just wasn't a fan of what followed.

    Until it comes out here north of the border, I'm vicariously following this thread in anticipation. The rest of the DH line never really won me over completely, but all of these comparisons of Eau's accessibility akin to Bleu de Chanel has my attention. I sorely lack crowd pleasing summer scents in my collection & this Dior Homme seems to fit the bill.

    I get sick longevity on this, and it was so strong that someone gave me a compliment on it 10 hours after application ... and then the following day because I had apparently put some inadvertently on my scarf. I have had two compliments thus far and I almost never get compliments.

    In the Dior site when you look at the fragrance, it gives the option to buy, there is no official store section, just browse and voila you will see the size and "add to cart" option...You may need to use an actual computer though, not sure if the Dior Mobile site offers this option...

    I think you can expect a minimum of 5 hours with this one. It seems like people are averaging about 6 or 7, with 2 to 3 solid hours of projection.

    My nose may just be weird, but is anyone else getting a slight GPHii vibe from this? I've made the point before that there's something in the Dior Homme framework that reminds me of tea...and with DHE, I've been getting that along with a warm spice note in the mid that instantly made me think of GPHii's tea/cinnamon combo. Only slightly.

    Anyway, just putting that out there. Still wearing this, still loving it, and still getting great performance with it.

    Maybe what you are picking up is the AF-Fierce/MB-Legend note that a few people have commented on? I get that a little bit as well, and it is a sort of sweeter, stronger version of the "tea" note in GpH II.

    It smells like Just Cavalli for men. In other words, cheap and deodorant-like. It simply doesn't smell expensive at all.

    I got my bottle on Saturday and I wore it the last two days. So far, I think it's a very solid work and church scent that will make one smell very good with almost zero chance of offending anyone. I am picking up a host of notes that I honestly cannot single out. But they all smell nice!

    I do get the comments that it is like blending Dior Homme with Mont Blanc Legend. That's pretty accurate, and actually a very nice smell.

    So I think it's a winner and a better scent than Dior Homme Sport, which to me is a harsh ginger bomb. This will be a great option for the hot months to come.

    It's not expensive? Well excuse me, but I find €60 to be reasonably expensive. Perhaps that's nothing to you, but it is to me and many others I can assure you.

    My point is that it smells like an Axe deodorant. It does not smell like a sophisticated fragrance from a high-end designer.

    That's $1.20 per ml. Ergo, fairly expensive. Also, not everyone has a massive budget, and the average shopper certainly isn't going to spend that much on a mediocre fragrance. The fact that you consider $60 for 50ml to be a 'cheapie' is a privilege on your part.

    And there's where the huge irony comes in. I've had Dior Homme, and sampled several times Dior Homme Sport, Dior Homme Cologne...pretty much all of them except Dior Homme Intense. And to me, this was the first one that I really liked enough to not only feel OK wearing it, but in actually wanting to own a bottle. I owned Dior Homme before, but sold my 95% full bottle of it, primarily because it was simply a bit too feminine/odd smelling for my taste (my tastes are considerably more mainstream, I realize that). But that's why they came out with this one and released it in America, where tastes in fragrances are a bit more mainstream....to satisfy another segment of the market. Interestingly enough, this is one I've actually received several compliments on while wearing.

    I'm sorry, I should have worded it differently. $60 for a bottle of fragrance is not in the upper range of what fragrances retail for, not even close. This is far closer to the entry level pricing, geared for mass market consumption. I'm not going to mention all the fragrances that that are sold for $20 or less in discount bins at various outlets, that is a whole different issue - we are discussing full MSRP pricing here. In terms of fragrances, "expensive" tends to be in the $200+ for a 50ml (1.7oz) bottle, some going for many hundreds of dollars, even thousands. Attars, for example, can easily fetch $100 to $2000 per ml - yes, per ml. I'd definitely classify those as (very) expensive, in the top echelon of the pricing spectrum. $60 for a bottle of fragrance that will last most people a year or two is therefore very, very inexpensive, in the grand schema of things. Most people spend more than that in a single day going out to dinner. I hope you can agree 1-3 hours of enjoying food for $60 vs enjoying 1-2 years of a fragrance for the same $60 can be considered "quite a bargain." ;-)

    For what it's worth, Bleu de Chanel, a sort of "Dior Homme Eau for Men" equivalent from the house of Chanel, retails roughly for the same price - and is geared towards mass market, not to us fragheads. And it does very well indeed - it is apparently the no.3 best selling male fragrance in the US. Just mentioning this to show you that these relatively inexpensive fragrances can, and often do, outsell much better quality fragrances, by factors of thousands to one, simply because they _are_ inexpensive and within most people's means. If $60 was too expensive, Chanel would have sold far fewer bottles and Bleu would have never reached the no.3 spot. Heck, Acqua di Gio is more expensive (50%+ more) and it outsells Bleu to this day. Guys are dropping $90-$160 on a bottle without much complaining about AdG being expensive.

    I am no expert on Axe products, but I can guarantee you no one sane is going to mistake Axe for anything from Dior. The Eau for Men may be lighter/softer version of DH, but it still smells great and NOT like a cheap deodorant or body spray that evaporates within 10 minutes and leaves no trace behind. You'd need to keep spraying that Axe stuff 100 times throughout the day to get the equivalent of couple of sprays of DHE in the morning. So as cheap as Axe may be, ultimately a real fragrance with lasting power of several hours is far less expensive at the end of the day.

    Cant believe someone could imply something from the Dior Homme line would smell like a cheap Lynx/Axe spray. Thats ludicrous.. High end master perfumery it may not be, but from what ive smelt from that line, it suprised me as being one of the nicer and better smelling/quality lines out there in the standard pricing/commercial/mainstream world. I think the quality exceeds that of the Chanel Allure/Bleu lines and im sticking to my opinion.

    As for price, i can kind of understand what he means, its at the top end of mainstream department store/commercial prices, just like the Chanels, they are more expensive than the Joops and Davidoffs and Guccis and Pradas etc, but on a website like this for people who enjoy fragrance it is far from expensive, this is standard run of the mill stuff your talking about, maybe not to everyone or families/people on a budge,t but id be inclined to assume most people read this website because they are interested in perfume, not because they just want to hunt out some bargain basement stock...

    It does remind me of a quality aerosol deodorant when you first spray it (not AXE). I think someone else mentioned Mont Blanc's Legend which I can see towards the dry down. There's also some elements from the Prada mens line.

    This is high quality stuff. If you are using a sample decant from Macy's spray like in 2-3 spray layers because this is how much the Dior Homme Eau atomizer sprays this way you will get the full effect of the product. Spray both sides of your neck, back of head and front of your shirt. I did this and It lasted for HOURS when I usually always have longevity problems. I highly recommend spraying your clothes it really helps with DHE. I sprayed DHE and DH on each of my hands and DHE lasted a hour longer and seemed to project SLIGHTLY more than DH maybe its because the cacao is so subtle in DH... I have received compliments and I sprayed 5 sprays this morning (1 on each side of my neck, 1 behind my head on my hair, 1 on the front of my shirt and 1 down my shirt on my undershirt. I asked a friend at work 2 hours after application if she could smell my cologne said it was way too strong. This stuff is potent. This is great stuff you guys, It's so unpretentious and just smells so good!!! It is not to loud yet it projects really really well and has over average sillage just like DH. It dose not shout for attention and yet delivers on the compliment factor. I feel very safe and confident when I wear this, which is important to me because I would never want to offend anyone. I really don't care if this fragrance gets bashed online by the "Fragrance Elite" because the women love this and it's money WELL spent. This has become a staple in my collection and is in my top 5 for sure. Very versatile.

Spray both sides of your neck, back of head and front of your shirt. I did this and It lasted for HOURS when I usually always have longevity problems. I highly recommend spraying your clothes it really helps with DHE. I sprayed DHE and DH on each of my hands and DHE lasted a hour longer and seemed to project SLIGHTLY more than DH maybe its because the cacao is so subtle in DH... I have received compliments and I sprayed 5 sprays this morning (1 on each side of my neck, 1 behind my head on my hair, 1 on the front of my shirt and 1 down my shirt on my undershirt. I asked a friend at work 2 hours after application if she could smell my cologne said it was way too strong. This stuff is potent. This is great stuff you guys, It's so unpretentious and just smells so good!!! It is not to loud yet it projects really really well and has over average sillage just like DH. It dose not shout for attention and yet delivers on the compliment factor. I feel very safe and confident when I wear this, which is important to me because I would never want to offend anyone. I really don't care if this fragrance gets bashed online by the "Fragrance Elite" because the women love this and it's money WELL spent. This has become a staple in my collection and is in my top 5 for sure. Very versatile.
    Well said. I have my nose down my t shirt sniffing it right now! PS...I love the Psalm you have quoted.

    I just got my bottle in the mail today. This is probably not the best day/time of year to test this one (It's about 18 degrees with 4 inches of snow where I live in KY). However, I really like this one so far. As others have noted, the Dior Homme DNA is clearly there on the initial spray.

    You get some iris, but it's turned way down from DH and DHI. It's one of the most masculine irises I've smelled--along with MPG's Iris Bleu Gris.

    I'm about an hour into wearing it now (one spray on the chest after a shower) and it's developing very nicely.
    I think projection and longevity will be excellent in warmer weather. This will be a staple for me this spring and summer.
    It's clean, inoffensive, and just smells good. It shares some similarities with Bleu de Chanel, but it's much better, to me at least.

    Another winner from Dior.

    Yes, it's often important not to overwhelm others.

    I think this scent, along with Bleu de Chanel, will be those bottles I can grab and fire away when I'm in a hurry. They will be the blue blazers of my wardrobe, like YSL L'Homme used to be for a very brief period.

    Yeah, see you have to spray your fragrance and tan on in exactly the right order to maximize longevity...

    lmfao... all we need is Luca Turin to agree for the trifecta and it will be forever etched in stone as a part of fragrance history.

    ". . . a little girl's vinyl purse stuffed with artificially flavored fruit candies." I really love that well-turned phrase. Frankly, I would probably rush out to buy a scent that had that description in its list of notes. It's too funny and perfect. The funniest part: he's right. It really does smell like that.

    Even worse, that's the part of DH Eau for Men No Really We Mean It It's For Men And We Had To Say It Twice that I like the most. It could use more of the plasticky lipstick iris smell, less of the aforementioned Fierce connotations.

    I'm really anxious to try this one - seeing as I really like Dior Homme, Dior Homme Intense and Dior Homme Cologne. Something in Dior Homme Sport rubs me the wrong way (the sportiness aka calone probably) and I haven't invested in a bottle yet, but I probably will just to have a full collection of them. As the full collection wish manifests, I can't help to be drawn to Dior Homme Eau as well. The only issue is the fact that I seem unable to sample or buy it in Europe. I've tried several tax free shops ranging from Italy to Switzerland to Norway - none have even heard of it yet - which is a shame.

    Regarding the "ordinarity" of it - I'd say it's a good thing. I don't need all my fragrances to rear it's weirdly ugly or challenging head. Some times I just want to smell good, politely and without shouting about how crrrrrrrazy I am. It's as easy as that - and if Eau slightly resembles Bleu I'll probably be very happy.

    Bottom line - thanks for all your reports on this fragrance. It looks to be a solid release. Yes, it is more of a marketing ploy than Dior Homme / Intense, but I still think I can identify with the fragrance and use it for those times I wish to smell pleasant without shouting.
