    I wish Dia Man had the strength of Straight to Heaven, and Straight to Heaven had the subtlety of Dia Man.

    Dia Man is a whisper. Straight to Heaven is a heavy, blunt instrument. Not sure which I would choose.

    I can't begin to express how much better Straight to Heaven is than Dia Man.

    Better smell (by far)
    Longer lasting (current by Kilian reformulation rumors aside)
    Better projection (current by Kilian reformulation rumors aside)
    Stronger, more compliments, even a better name.

    Dia man is nice actually - I was just quite surprised how weak it was for being an Amouage.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. Brückner - Aoud 1
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. House of Matriarch - Blackbird

    Straight to Heaven for me.

    Dia Man..I should say I am not a fan of STH. Dia Man is one of those scents that you catch yourself getting wafts through the day and think...that smells great.

    Dia Man. It's meant to be a bit soft-spoken, but it's not weak. It lasts most of the day, but olfactory fatigue plays a role with this one.
