Dior Homme Intense current formula
Ah ! The hype train has elevated Dio Homme Intense to almost mythical status. I speak of the original release with the silver collar. I happen to be reviewing the current formula ( black collar ), but was exposed to the original sometime in 2008. I never owned the silver collar, yet I own the current release. That's not to say I think the new is better. It simply means that years ago, I didn't think enough of Dior Homme Intense to add it to the wardrobe. My tastes have since changed and the current formula is a worthy addition. It doesn't have the cocoa note many enjoy from the 2007 version, but if I want cocoa, I have others to turn to.
The combination of Iris-Lavender and Vanilla in the top and heart have a subtle soap aspect. This remains until the drydown stage and overall, Dior Homme Intense is a linear, but pleasant wear. Nothing earth-shattering for sure, but versatile and enjoyable nonetheless. Sillage is good with longevity approximately 8 hours on me and longer as a skin scent. You'll detect this easily the next day. Thumbs up from Aromi for Dior Homme Intense, regardless of formula. As always, a sample wear is recommended before purchase.
