The ghost train/double agent
This fragrance is a bit like a myth. You know that parts of it are true and yet no one can really figure it out.
Anyone can say anything about it. But nobody really knows what to do with it. Big novel or little dime novel? Keep on researching or check off ?
I decided to keep at it. I didn't want to believe that they'd created a fragrance that Sauvage would compete with I didn't want to believe that this scent was a loser
According to some perfume sites Iso-E Super is said to be contained. According to my humble expertise, that would be a decisive factor. Namely, that Iso-E Super is a fragrance molecule about which one can read a lot, but real experience reports are sometimes missing. What does this stuff do in a perfume? What does it do to the perfume? How does it affect the environment? Fellow men?
So Dior Homme is one of these Iso-E Super Candidates, even though this ingredient is not (no longer) listed in the fragrance pyramid.
I have already experimented with the mentioned scent molecule in sprayable form. Iso applied and then on the spots the perfume of my choice. This procedure was especially helpful with woody perfumes, also with fresh, peppy, citric top notes. For one thing, the thing disappears right under my nose, connects to my skin chemistry and also connects to my perfume. The effect is very manifold.
From H-bomb to silk veil. It was a lot of stuff. Maybe I'll write a separate blog entry about it
So now Dior Homme.
On closer inspection, the new Dior Homme is not so much to begin with. Woody and spicy. Sounds really boring at first too. Somehow I even thought of a different fragrance for a short time, but without this level of perfume. But fortunately it's not.
When applied, it has a slightly sweet smell, but not an obtrusive one. Slightly flowery at first too. But this seems to disappear quickly. Iso-E Super allows part of the fragrance to fuse quickly with the carrier, as if it had disappeared through an invisible wall. What then remains perceptible in the air is a pleasantly light spiciness, followed by a warm wood accord. But even these chords seem to lose themselves as if by magic.
Now you might think the smell is bad or the batch is faulty. But far from it. He'll be back. If the wearer doesn't expect it. But also the environment is not prepared for it. Because if somebody smells him, nobody gets the idea who the carrier is
I can pull the veil behind me. People around me notice it. And when I really get going, the scent also goes off and fills the room with its aura. But standing close to me, people can ask where the scent is now. I can say not knowing, nobody would suspect me. But the aura is there.
And that, I think, gives some people the benefit of the doubt. The first time I wore it I thought: "Oh yes, people here and there are right. Maybe the scent isn't that special." But the second time I wore it, I found it very pleasant myself. A tight-fitting scent that doesn't want to attract attention, that I don't let get close to me
Far from it!
When people from the surrounding area ask who has left his perfumed shirt lying around - and that after I have already put on the fragrance 7 hours before - then that means something. And no matter which perfume I have already worn, this one has been one of the most commented on by my fellow men so far.
But nobody could comment on, let alone perceive, a scent that should no longer be there after seven hours. And I was always kind enough to help people look for the perfume bearer. Unfortunately we never found it. Such a rascal
That's why I call the Dior Homme 2020 my ghost train. Even if some people don't want to believe it. They will still experience it. Like a hallucination. And I'm the engineer
All in all a very horny fragrance with surprising results and experiences. Interesting from my own experience that people react similarly to the Dior Homme Intense. Only that DHI is obviously just there. Olfactorially thought, you see it like a red Chevy on a green lawn. The new DH is like a phantom. It is there. But where? And that is what I call an outstanding performance. A scent created intentionally to be mysterious. There's another one that I can smell. Dior Homme 2020 is like a double agent within its own ranks. Everybody knows that he is sneaking around somewhere. It could be anyone
The flacon therefore fits very well again. The guy in the suit. Conspicuously inconspicuous.
After testing it more often now I come to the conclusion: It has become very good. The experience practice differs slightly from that with other fragrances. But here I find this really successful.
So be ready in case the ghost train rumbles near you. Let us take you on a relaxed ride into the unknown
