Inspired by DHI, completely thrilled by DHP
Unfortunately, since the perfume variant is nowhere to be tested "in the regular way", like DH or DHI, it was Dior Homme Intense that I was able to test first.
Right from the first immediate impression, I was extraordinarily taken with it. A warm, powdery sweetness that draws you into its spell, like a candy and almond stand at a fair.
Compared to very many other fragrances I tested that day, I immediately thought "I have to have that scent!"; it was simply so compelling, stand-out and inspiring.
But perhaps I rejoiced a little too soon. Because a few hours later, the strong powdery and simply very feminine character of DHI came to bear, which I would never want to have so myself on me.
After a little research, it then emerged that there is still the perfume variant, which should be darker, more masculine and leathery accentuated. So there was still a remaining possibility.
Since it was - as previously described - not possible to test the fragrance elsewhere, I then dared the blind purchase and ordered directly from Dior. And, what to say, the perfume met all expectations and much more!
The perfume embodies the same highly attractive DNA of DHI, but just exactly with a more masculine undertone, which makes it possible that you could not blame any man to smell so.
It is the perfect mix of sweetness and leathery, masculine grounding, which ultimately forms the bow around the overall powdery package.
Durability: easily 12 hours
Sillage: 1.5-2 hours strong, after 4 hours at arm's length, after 6 in the very close environment perceptible, then only a skin scent
SUMMARY: Who also finds Dior Homme Intense very attractive, but (unfortunately) too feminine, will find in Dior Homme perfume greatest pleasure. 10/10 Buy recommendation.
