    If you like them, wear either. Just keep the application minimal.

    DHI with, as you said, one shot to the neck/chest at least an hour before the date.

    What do you mean by trying hard? I'd never consider DH an obvious or try-hard scent. I could see how some people might say that about DHI. But they would be wrong, of course!
    When you’re overthinking your wardrobe/approach for a date that you had to seek opinions on the internet, that in my books qualifies as ‘trying too hard’. Good jibe lol but I’m not offering the perspective of a ‘prey’ for I have never felt like one in relationships. It’s a pretty screwed up way to look at dates IMO. I’m just someone comfortable in my own skin that I don’t even had to the ‘hunting’. I’m more of a ‘trapper’ lol. But I know guys who enjoy the pursuit and pull all kinds of moves. I’m aware of the tricks of pickup artist ‘trade’ and given the chance, can spot when they’re in play. I’m just not interested in becoming one of them. And believe me, fragrance is not among their ‘tools’. At least not in the way most guys think.

    You should be fine wearing either one. I would probably go with Dior homme.

    It seems like advice can either go in the direction of commenting on the appropriateness of Dior Homme/Intense for a date or on the philosophy of fragrance and dating, most often mixing both.

    I had a bottle of DHI when I was 26 that I dearly loved. My only advice is to wear what you like to wear and what you love because there's no point in crafting some plan at a later point to introduce a scent on your body that you were too shy or uncertain to wear in the first place. Secondly, make sure you wear it on your 2nd and 3rd dates and so forth. The person I'm seeing now doesn't know she's been smelling Oud Ispahan but she comments on "my smell" whenever she nuzzles closely. That's unlikely to happen if you keep switching up your fragrances.

    Come on, either one works. It isn't that important in the larger scheme of things, and wouldn't make or break a date, unless you empty out the bottle.

    If there is chemistry: no matter what you wear.
    So enjoy and be comfortable with whatever your choice.

    I'd go with the Dior Homme. Don't overspray, be confident!

    Dior Homme Intense is by far my most complimented perfume.

    Did Jake go on the date and what did he wear? Enquiring minds want to know

    Same here, and the compliments come from both women and men and are generally pretty effusive.

    Trick question, you save your money and put it towards another bottle.

    Also some hilarious replies in here from posters trying to brag about their alleged interactions with women and later referring to themselves as trappers....creeeeepy

    I would go with DH. But after reading about the “trying too hard” perspective, well, I don’t know. Maybe I would just go easier on the sprays. Never thought on that perspective. I just think: “This is nice and I’m in the mood for for it.” A bit selfish, I know.

    I would honestly wear either one. My choice between the two is Intense, but I would still be just as happy to wear regular Homme.

    I don't see any problem..... You will go right with only one spray on the neck. Less is more...
