A few hours after application, as it's fading away, the similarity between Valentino Uomo and Dior Homme is striking. At least. during my one and only wearing of Valentino Uomo it was. I have a couple of samples that I picked up at Nordstrom recently, so I'll have to try it again to see, but I spent the first few hours "not getting" the association that people were making between these two...until I reached the dry down phase. Then it came screaming out at me.
