    Default What kind of man can pull off Dior Homme Intense?

    I think that I like this fragrance but I am trying to figure out if it would suit my personality or if I would come across in a strange way. So, what personality traits and way of dressing should a man have to pull this off on dates, dinners, events?

    As with any other fragrance, if one feels comfortable wearing something they can pull anything off.

    Good advice! We could stop there. The only thing I came to think about is that I only wear this in the colder months. So I don't wear it with shorts, but otherwise you would be fine

    I agree with what you are saying. I am just wondering if it's more suited for a very masculine, confident and beautiful man or if really anyone can pull this off.

    Dior Homme Intense, to me, is very versatile. Not just with what I wear, but for the seasons as well. In the summer, I often think how nice and refreshing it would be to wear it. And in the cold months, I think it's a good accent to that type of weather as well.
    But in a general sense, I would associate it as an evening scent. A dress shirt and pants or very nice jeans.

    I get where you are coming from...I find ones like this and LIDGE difficult and challenging to wear because they feel "loud" on me. But, as others have said, if you enjoy it and feel good in it, go for it. I actually would like to give this a spin again and see if anything has changed

    Exactly what I came here to say.

    If you like it, then wear it.

    Stop overthinking it.

    I kind of like DH better than DHI, as I agree that DHI is a bit too sweetish.
    FYI: I spray all fragrances on clothing, never on skin.

    Probably biggest requisit would be confidence. But i imagine anyone could wear it fine. I always found it a bit loud and gourmandy. I agree though it has to fit. I like the smell of Poison but dont wear it. I like it on others.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Agree with the others. It's quite mainstream and acceptable. This is not one of those "if you doubt yourself, wear something else" type of things. (This is the motto of a clothing brand, btw).

    We all know where the OP is coming from. Basically, another way to ask this is what do you picture a wearer of DHI would look like, clothes he/she wear? I know, you could answer that question the same way as the others, but obviously we don't completely feel that way; otherwise, why have a thread that says "post a pic and we'll match a fragrance to your look". There's definitely a difference conceptually between a DHI wearer and say an Artisan Pure wearer. Or a Malesia wearer and a Shalimar wearer. Etc., etc.

    As long as you want to smell good, go for it! Also confidence always goes a long way.

    "we"? Who is "we"? Speak for yourself. I'm wearing a black hoody, jeans, New Balance 990s, and Ambre Nuit. I'm not trying to match a look and a scent. I just want to smell something amazing when I smell myself. If other people think I'm mismatched, well...why do they care? They can mind their own business. They can also take a few steps back because there's no need to be so close that they can smell what I'm wearing.

    This idea that any man could wear this fragrance is ridiculous, that’s not how it works.

    In order to qualify you must;

    1. Wear knee high socks
    2. Grow your nostril hair
    3. Grow a moustache
    4. Tie your nostril hair to your moustache
    5. Walk with a limp
    6. Walk like a pimp
    7. Chew tuna flavoured gum
    8. Own a Lamborghini Murcielago (Aventador if layering with Aventus)
    9. Refer to your mother as ‘mumsy’
    10. Wrap yourself in wallpaper before showering

    If you don’t complete all the above then you have no right to wear this fragrance and bring shame to your family for even considering it

    OR

    Just wear whatever the hell you want, whenever the hell you want and just live your life without the constant fear of what others will think
    My top 30

    1. Gucci Envy / D&G By Man
    2. Amber Sky /Cedrat Boise
    3. Costarela / TFK Arab Spring
    4. Dior Homme Intense / Incense Oud
    5. Dior Homme Cologne / Chez Bond
    6. Layton / Aventus
    7. Antidote / By the Fireplace
    8. Gucci Pour Homme / Armani Attitude
    9. Black Phantom / Baccarat Rouge 540
    10. D&G The One EDP / M7
    11. Santal Majuscule / Reckless
    12. Diadema / Prada L’Homme
    13. Habdan / Tuxedo
    14. Lira / Dior Homme Sport 2012
    15. Citric Santa Eulalia / Clive X

    I like it and find it easy to wear, a good quality "vanilla scent", nice when it's cool out and can be worn by everybody, alas I think quite a few women don't seem to care for it all that much. Could be as it's easy to overapply and/or as it's too feminine (the latter certainly is the reason my woman doesn't care for it).

    True, I've encountered that issue as well. Still, every once in a while it's quite enjoyable.

    Tbh i was wearing adidas joggers, Yeezys and an adidas lookalike zip up sweater to go buy some craft beer at some local brewery and wow i was a lil embarrassed at the attention and people asking me what iwas wearing when i wore my 2014 DHI i had just gotten in the mail that day, totally NOT the recommended clothing but the point is, outside of the frag-head world the average person will love this even if you’re wearing pijamas.

    PS: the original 07’ first formulation is arguably the Greatest designer fragrance of ALLL TIME !.......DHI barely makes my top 10 so that says a lot
