    Default DHI Discontinuation or Reformulation? Link non functional on Dior's website

    Hey guys,

    I was told by someone that it was discontinued. Didn't believe it so I went and saw the link is down, I think DHP is down too. I wouldn't think they would discontinue a great seller. Do you think its what's happened to Eau Sauvage Parfum or discontinued all together? Or just the website is down temporarily?

    I doubt it. The French website still has them:
    http://www.dior.com/beauty/fr_fr/par...diorhomme.html

    Also notice the new packaging (above all very distinct change in box), also for Dior homme. Who knows if a reformulation will happen with the packaging change.

    No way.

    They'd be shooting themselves in the foot if they discontinued DHI(which is most likely their most sold fragrance with a higher concentration than EDT).

    DHI was reformulated a couple or three months ago anyway...

    I wouldn't have thought it was discontinued. Regional websites sometimes omit or highlight certain fragrances.
    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.

    Ya but the they sell a couple that are discontinued in the US (from the Prive collection), that you can still find in France, and Italy. They do discontinue them in some countries, but not in others. this is the case with tons of other brands too.

    As to whether or not OPs claim has any validity, I would wait until I hear it from more sources before jumping to conclusions. Websites get rid of stuff all the time in this fashion.. Mugler Cologne just did it recently on the French site, but not on the US one, then it came back to the French one.

    DHI and DHP were never available on the US Dior website. DHI can be purchased at the Dior boutiques in the US but DHP cannot.

    I don't think either DHI or DH are best sellers out of our little fragrance aficionados' world.

    I never made any claims, I was asking because someone made a claim. To me, it didn't pass the "smell test" pun intended so I came here to ask the experts.

    I only tried it once and it smelt a bit to me like it had moved closer to the smell of Dior Homme itself, although stronger. That was my initial thought from doing a quick side by side comparison when out shopping. The thread about it is here. I've not tried it again since but it's on my radar. I've got a 150ml bottle of DHI in reserve anyway of the last formulation.

    Didn't know DHI was reformulated again, thanks for the info, hopefully they didn't mess it up. I am pretty satisfied with the current (last) formulation that i own.

    For what it's worth, I was at the airport in Paris and saw the new packaging and it is gorgeous; basically it is a sturdy matte box with a cover, and you open it up, and the usual DHI box is inside--so a box in a box. I could imagine this being very practical for travel since the box looks so sturdy.

    Also I think the caps on the bottles were different. I noticed the same cap change on the DHP bottle as well, by the way.

    I don't know if there is a reformulation that goes along with this, and was already wearing something else so couldn't test on skin, but I sprayed it on a card and it smelled wonderful.

    Fragrance net still has them, I heard the last major reformulation happened in 2015. I was thinking about buying either DHI or DHP but too hesitant to blind buying them, Ive tried all the rest of the versions besides those 2. Was also too conflicted if I should get valentino uomo instead since I only want 1 of these type of fragrances.

    Its amusing what gets repeated and believed.
    If you believed what you read on basenotes, then this fragrance has been reformulated every year.
    I'd be willing to bet its been reformulated once. I've smelled 2015 (5T01) and 2013 (3V01) and found no difference in smell or performance.

    There's an informative piece here on DH and DHI reformulations, and how to tell when Dior change the formula of one of their perfumes. It won't necessarily translate to a noticeabley different smell to all, or even any, noses of course, as it might just be a tweak to the latest formula.

    Indeed. And there is by no means a general consensus that DHI has been reformulated in the last few years.

    Except that the changes to the formula code itself on the box would indicate that it's been tweaked at the very least...

    But what does your nose tell you? It's one thing to notice changes to a formula when you try a new bottle, quite another to go actively searching for reformulations.

    This doesn't make sense to me in the context of this thread or the one linked above. Who has been "actively searching for reformulations"?

    You were talking about a possible reformulation of DHI. I was just wondering whether you'd noticed a real difference in the juice, which led you to find out more, or whether you'd been alerted to the new formula code and assumed that there had been (noticeable) changes in the fragrance.

    If you read above and the thread I linked then you will have the full story.

    Looks like Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum might be getting the axe as it's showing up as unavailable.

    Thats odd. They just released the new Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum 2017 last month to replace the 2012 formulation.
