From the brand - "This new Dior Homme has an unmistakably virile signature that does not prevent it from developing tender, sensual accents. It basically draws the portrait of a modern man." François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator
According to the perfumer, this is a fragrance overdosed with carnal woody notes, and it represents a return to the basics: classic and simplicity. It is clear, clean, gentle, and woody but also slightly sweet, and wears like a second skin.
Reviews of Dior Homme (2020)
From Fragrantica - "This scent gets hate because of the nostalgia factor with the original Dior Homme. However this scent is excellent, simply awesome. Manly, citrusy, woody. 9/10."
Fragrantica - "ethereal, fresh muskiness, what a masterpiece in its simplicity"
Fragrantica - "Ar first like everyone else I know I rejected this fragrance but came around to giving it a chance and realized how fantastic it is. Excellent performance. Has a mature and retro feel definitely not for the younger crowd. This is a gem of a fragrance that’s highly versatile. One of my favorites"
Fragrantica - "Don’t underestimate this one. It’s profoundly wearable—for all occasions, any season any reason. I put some on under my shirt before bed last night and I woke up to gorgeous wafts of fresh yet warming woods and vetiver with a hint of citrus. There’s a combination of freshness and creaminess here that I find intoxicating."
