    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.

    One is very Dia to me, whereas the other is Straight to...no wait, it doesn't work. Oh well, I vote Dia Man anyway.

    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.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    Straight to Heaven for me.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    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.
