    Default 50ml of DHI 2011 or 100ml of DHI 2013?

    Hello everyone, Zhang Fan here with another question. I have found that it is possible to buy either 50ml of Dior Homme Intense from 2011, or 100ml of Dior Homme Intense from 2013. The prices are the same. Some people said the 2011 version is the best, but I also heard some people say the 2013 version is almost the same. What do you think?

    One more question: I love Dior Homme, but I cannot find Dior Homme Intense in any shops here. I need to order the bottle online. Is this a safe "blind buy"?

    If you like Dior Homme and you like vanilla, then Dior Homme Intense is a safe blind buy.

    I would get 100 ml of the 2013 version.

    +100%

    DHI is exactly that. Dior Homme + vanilla and maybe a little extra cocoa is what I get. Also the formulations to me don’t seem all that different to warrant a major purchase of a vintage batch. Smelled them all and the one I have is a 2014 batch which 2 sprays lasts me all day.

    Agree.

    The 2013 is a closer representation to the original silver collar formulation much better than the 2011 IMO. My recommendation would be to only purchase the silver collar formulation (2007-10) but it's very hard to find now and expensive.

    If I’d never smelled the 2011 edition, logic dictates I go with the larger bottle from 2013. But if you tend to go along with what many people say then you might feel much more comforted owning the 2011, even if it’s half the volume. There’s no right answer.
