    Default Dior Homme original vs Dior Homme 2020?

    Hey guys!! Need some info on Dior Homme. I own both the Parfum and the intense version but not Dior Homme (I know crazy,right?! Lol). I know the new Dior Homme 2020 is a new take on DH, but I haven't smelled the original yet. 2020 version was very underwhelming and boring. Anyway, my question is this: Is the new Dior Homme 2020 supposed to replace Dior Homme original or well the OG still be sold? Lastly is the original STILL worthy buying after all these years? Thanks in advance!!

    Is the new Dior Homme 2020 supposed to replace Dior Homme original or well the OG still be sold?

    - My info/understanding is that the original will still be sold, at least for the time being in Europe, based on what I've read here and Dior's history.

    Lastly is the original STILL worthy buying after all these years?

    - An enthusiastic yes, even if you have Dior Homme Intense. For many years I felt one didn't need to have Dior Homme if one had the Intense and liked it more (as I do), but then I've grown to like Dior Homme more and more, and it's also more versatile.

    It's definitely still worth getting the original. The original Homme isn't available in U.S. stores but online it still relatively easy to find.

    Dior Homme original (as it is called now) and the new Dior Homme 2020 are about as far apart as East is from West.

    Original is based around iris and comes across sweet, chocolatey and a tad creamy. It's quite versatile and likeable so long as you like sweet scents. Dior Homme 2020 is a fresh scent based around ISO E Super and Ambrox. It's very similar to Escentric 02 by Escentric Molecules as I remember it. It's mostly chemistry/art to me than a perfume with a proper brand name, history and a note breakdown.

    Dior Homme Intense is definitely a stronger version of DH original, perhaps with a slight re-balancing of notes. This one is more for the night or special occasions and works well with less sprays.

    Definitely worth getting the original Dior Homme EDT is a excellent iris based fragrance. The 2020 Dior Homme keeps getting so much love I might check it out again in the future not in a rush to though, I’m still trying to find Dior Homme Parfum 2020 100ml!

    I actually prefer the original over the Intense flanker. It's much more versatile. That being said, I found the 2020. version to be underwhelming. That doesn't mean I won't change my mind over time. All in all, Dior Homme original is still a worthy purchase.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I will revisit DH 2020 eventually myself but I'm ordering DH OG today!! Also, what should somebody expect to pay for 100ml bottle of Parfum and is it the same juice as the OG?

    Just smelled it briefly on a tester strip at Sephora. The opening was citrus and generic modern woods. It was pleasant, but nothing special.

    IMO - Yes.

    OG is better than the intense and the parfum in my opinion.
    OG > 2020 > Parfum > Intense
    I smell.

    The newer 2020 version is ok, but the original is much better IMO.

    The more I read through this thread, the more I think the thread title is asking us to compare apples with oranges.

    Other than the name which is very confusing, we are talking about two scents that are generations apart. They are not even in the same genre. So the comparison is a bit meaningless.

    I agree, they are not remotely similar fragrances. I think Fahrenheit is closer to 2020 than DH Original is.
    I smell.

    I prefer Dior Homme Intense over Dior Homme but they're both really good in their original formulations. I suggest seeking out the original formulation (2005-11) of Dior Homme over the 2020 release.

    I find the original Dior Homme to be outstanding.

    One minor confusing point... I saw a reference to DIOR HOMME 2020 PARFUM and I don't think that exists yet.

    To me knowledge the PARFUM version is a perfume version of the original DIOR HOMME version and it is not available in US market anymore.

    I have not tired the 2020 HOMME version but I can vouch that the original version is still excellent.

    Everything I read leads me to agree with Rum...DIOR HOMME 2020 is the new version and smells nothing like the original which was first issued in 2005.

    DIOR HOMME (Original), DIOR HOMME INTENSE, DIOR HOMME PARFUM are all basically related scents based on the notes of DIOR HOMME (Original).

    This naming thing has irked me. Now we can't say DIOR HOMME anymore. It has to also note "2020" or "original."
    Between Covid and retirement I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    Yes I agree. It's very confusing and likely to mean a lot of average Joe consumers won't know what they're buying... Dior's marketing department should have been sacked when they released all the Eau Sauvage flankers... and Sauvage.

    You can add 'vintage' to the vocabulary. They'll probably need to be a coined term similar to ''silver collar'' for DHI since the original Dior Homme has a silver stick.

    They're night and day to me, but both good. The original is on another level from 2020 IMO

    A while back I purchased a sample of Dior Homme 2020 when I smelled it I thought I'd been scammed. I went on to purchase another 2020 sample from a different reputable seller and realized I hadn't been scammed. I remember liking Dior Homme (original) and still really like the Intense version. I have gone back and purchased a sample of every iteration of this fragrance to make sure I hadn't lost my mind in judging the 2020 version. IMO, every Dior Homme before the 2020 version is worthy.
