    Default Kiton Men or Dior Higher ?

    Hi,

    I'm 22 years old and am looking for fresh / spicy / fougere fragrances. At the moment I like to wear Hugo and Nikos Sculpture and would like to buy myself a new fragrance. Should be a very practical for everyday use scent that you can wear for many occasions and at any time of day. Of course it should attract women.

    These two fragrances interested me particularly. The Kiton Men is supposed to go in the direction of Hugo and also slightly remember me of Aventus.

    Well, I came across the Dior. However, what scares me. He seems to be a pure summer / spring fragrance. Is it really nothing for autumn / winter? And is the longevity really so bad? (I have a pretty scent-eater skin)

    What would you rather put me to the heart.

    greeting

    I'd go with Kiton Men or better yet look into buying a bottle of Cereus No.7.

    I've tried both.

    Kiton exudes class, Higher exudes cheap.
    Kiton is not spicy though, its a fruity chypre.
    My signature scent, very easy to wear.

    Is it wearable for a 22 years old guy ? Some say it smells like cologne for 60 years old man or it is more fitting for older gentlemen :/

    Zero old man vibe.
    If it did, I wouldnt own it.
    Its sweet fruit with ligh florals.
    Its difficult to describe, I do not find it has a resemblance to Aventus.
    More so the ambergris dry down of Green Irish Tweed.

    Its pretty awesome for the office and warm, sunny weather.

    Agreed. I have mentally positioned it somewhere between GIT and Fahrenheit EDT.

    Then what's the "red box/black box" stuff all about? If anyone orders online, there's a good chance they won't know whether the box is going to be "red" or "black".

    Red = regular (most prefer this)
    Black = black version

    Dior Higher is nice... I feel that Kiton is better...

    My girlfriend melts when I wear Kiton Men around her.
    She has the same effect with GIT, but prefers Kiton.

    I think Kiton is one of those scents you can wear to the office and you can wear casually out to the bar after work and it fits both occassions.
    I personally love it, I traded off Higher.

    They're 2 different scents.
    Higher is more of a bitter play on cypress and wood with a cheap pixelated citrus in the opening.
    Kiton is more of a refined citrus, with the florals of a bright but not screaming violet and a sweet lily of the valley dancing around the fruit.

    I posted a review stating it should be a modern classic chypre.
    Under appreciated, under rated.

    Six sprays for regular use, 9 or 10 sprays when going out to some club or event, should do the trick.
