Dior Homme, masculine fragrance from 2005, got a lot of re-editions including Dior Homme Cologne that was first launched in 2007. In early 2013, Dior presents a new version of Dior Homme Cologne.

The new fragrance is announced as a modern cologne - simple, natural and sophisticated. It consists of citrus, floral and musky accords. Francois Demachy formulates the composition of precious raw materials of Calabrian bergamot, Italian grapefruit blossom and sensual musk. The fragrance gives a sense of purity of white cotton shirt and freshness that lingers after showering.

The face of the perfume is Jude Law, photographed by Peter Lindbergh. The fragrance is available as cologne in 75 and 125 ml bottles.

Dior Homme Cologne 2013 Fragrance Reviews

Classic and simple, May be too simple at times.

It's the type of colognes that can fit anytime, but only seems right when it's summer, sunny, and you're wearing light colored cloth, it reminds me of models running on the beaches, it's weird, i liked it but i never imagined myself or anyone i know wearing it.

It is very long lasting btw, i sampled this on a tester paper along with Fahrenheit Absolute and Fahrenheit Aqua, this outlasted them by far, and was still strongly noticeable on the tester paper after 48 hours.

It starts off with Bergamot and Grapefruit, some notes of lemon hits the nose as well, in a couple of hours the grapefruit grows stronger, the smell becomes sharply lemony on the beginning of the sniff, yet it tends to be directly followed with this soothing effect that reduces the sharpness of the citrus, it's like tasting a milky citrus smoothie, a creamy note directly follows the lemony note, and that soothing note is not Musk, i couldn't smell musk at all, may be just a hint, once.

I have to say i can smell similarities in the middle phase, with Encre Noire from Lalique, it's probably the Cypress note.

To sum up, this is never a blind buy, should be tried once and even twice, it's different than anything Dior made lately. May be would lead a new trend in perfumery.

I finally got my hands on this amazing fragrance...I wish Dior wouldn't of discontinued this fragrance especially when it's done well as a product!!! If it was labeled as a "limited edition" everyone knows that it will eventually won't be available anymore.
This was a blind purchase based on several reviews and I have to agree that this juice is EXCELLENT!!!! When I first sprayed it on my skin I get a watering mouth full of zesty citrus note from bergamot as well as floral notes of grapefruit blossom.
The zesty citrus aroma stays for several hours, after awhile I'm able to detect a hint of musk giving it a real sexy aroma. This frag is Dior's best summer scent ever produced giving you an overall ATTRACTIVE GREEN scent.
Longevity and Silage are both very high quality lasting well past 8hrs considering it's a summer fragrance.
Overall thoughts,
This was the first time that Dior broke away from their main note of IRIS...giving us a real aromatic scent.
I LOVE the zesty citrusy notes giving you a feeling of a calming breeze with an aroma of lemon as they ripen under the heat of the summer sun in Italy making this juice ABSOLUTELY STUPENDOUS. Rating this juice is DEFINITELY worth 10/10...⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I recently bought it and I love it. It's perfect for summer!! Starts with one of the best citrus refreshing smell and then ends in a soft and clean aroma. It projects very well for 3 hours and then it stays close to skin for a long time. Very good longevity. My signature scent this summer for sure.

literally smells like a fizzy lemon lime soda (sprite, 7up, Sierra Mist etc)..This is pretty much dior homme sport 2008 without the spice.. very clean and refreshing scent but longevity is short lived..if you already own dior homme sport I say pass.. they smell so much alike

Positive: It's a great, natural smelling low-key or "stealth" fragrance. People my not recognize it as a perfume but just as clean, fresh laundry smell. DHC is perfect for hot climate, sports or delicate situations like working in close quarters or even a job interview.

Negative: Given a longevity of 1~2 hours the price tag is questionable.

This is by far my most complimented fragrance from my over 100 bottles collection. Dior Homme Cologne is loved by men and women, many have asked "what are you wearing because you smell so good". In reality, people rarely praise the scent that you use but in this case it happens quite often.

It has become my signature scent because it suits every occasion. DHC is a high quality, fresh and modern scent and very seductive too.

to me it is a very basic and simplistic fragrance done well. All I get really is an opening of pure citrus mostly a lemon smell.. It is a natural lemon, not a sweet edition blanche candy lemon, but more of a fresh lemon like those wipes restaurants give you to clean your hands.. it smells pretty much the same as that.. with some floral undertones. As it dries down the citrus fades and you get more of the floral and this clean cotton t shirt type of smell. so overall think lemon scented wipes ... the good ones that smell like pure lemon.. and some floral/ out of the wash fresh cotton t shirts.

longevity seems pretty good on it.. not too sure on projection

Overall I can appreciate the scent.. but I can see why people would like it and dislike it.. its a simplistic lemon scent.. for me personally I think I like something with more to it... but sometimes elegance is in simplicity. This one might be good if you want to wear a fragrance but don't want to smell as if you are wearing a "perfume".. another scent that is good at this is muegler cologne.

Lemony fresh cotton fabric smell. Last long, but sits on skin as far as I can tell. There's nothing wrong with this fragrance, but the purpose it serves can be accomplished with any fresh body spray, fragrance lotion, or perfumed soap. This is ideal for someone who wants there skin to smell clean without smelling like you're actually wearing a fragrance. I own it, but I don't warrant a blind buy. You aren't missing much at all.

First time I smelled this was at the duty free in the airport.. The salesperson sprayed it on a card and made me smell it, although I was preoccupied sniffing out scents like Opium Pour Homme, and Kouros to see what those were all about.. Dior Homme Cologne had just come out than and was brand new.. When I smelled it I was shocked at how good it smelled because fresh & citrusy scents are not really my thing.. Dior Homme Cologne is very simple, very fresh, clean, and pure citrus with a floral hint.. Smelled it for the second time today and now I really want this! This is one of the only citrus fragrances that has really piqued my interest! There is just something about it that really smells very nice and different..

The most natural scent I know. Conveys a less is more, never boastful, classic sort of confidence. Laid back yet invigorating.

Some fragrances rouse associations or thoughts of a certain time or place in the observer. For me this one elicits summer, Italian style.

I really got flashbacks of guzzling down gallons of Sprite/7-Up as a child, it honestly took me back to a great place in time and brought a smile to my face. This is a nice, real nice, citrus scent. Super fresh, sophisticated in its own right. Kinda pricey for wut you get, but I'm happy with it. Squeky clean smelling!

Esta colonia con el pasar de las horas me da una cierta semejanza con armani emporio white for him. Me gusta mucho,la parte citrica es amable. Tiene un toque de ginebra a mi olfato y un elegante musky aparece entre todo el citrico. Al final es bien fresco el aroma. 4.5/5 es mi opinion personal.

This is pure perfection when it comes to citrus, masculine scents.

It opens up with crispy freshness of citruses, smells a little like a lemon mixed with bergamot, freshly blended into heavenly smelling juice.
It warms up on skin, evolves just a little to show it's seductive side.

It's smells so good.

It's never easy when it comes to citrus scents. Most of them smell like air-fresheners or laundry detergents. It's very easy to cross the line and make a cheap-smelling citrus fragrance with no class.

This kind of fragrance takes a lot of good work and perfect blending.

It's not a complicated, multi-layer scent.
It's just a simple, clean citrus scent.

It's the proof that less is more.

I love the bottle design, it's a good reflection of this scent - like a clean citrus water, simple and elegant at the same time.

I also think it makes a good unisex perfume. I love it on my skin.

Smells natural, bright, positive and sexy at the same time, without being complicated and heavy in any way.

Love it, from the bottle to the liquid.

Good job, Dior (now please make something like this in a more feminine version)!

An invigorating frag, for the lovers of sharp citrus, which is modern, crisp and brilliant..

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 -50 mins - 5 inch projection. Refreshing and natural citrus, which is modern, sexy and for the day time. Ages 18 - 32

50 min - 1 hour 45 mins - 2 inch projection. Linear frag
vibrant citrus, wow

1 h 45 mins - 8 hours. Close to skin but longevity is very good. The citrus remains, less sharpness but IMHO even better now.


This scent is to die for, and one of the greatest - I find it addictive and absolutely love it

If you like this but want more projection, then try Armani Code Sport Athlete NOT the original Code Sport, but be quick as the Athlete version(clear bottle) is limited edition

Those who say that this smells like Allure Edition Blanche have obviously never smelled Allure Cologne Sport. They both start out almost identical, except this is a lot smoother and turns more lemony in the drydown rather than citrusy soapy from Cologne sport. It lasts all day on me, with moderate to low projection. Not really a compliment getter, just smells nice...
Honestly not worth the money,...maybe if they sold it in 150ml like Allure Cologne sport.

The drydown is completely different.
Very similar to AHS cologne,but each has its own identity.

A good fragrance. A minimalist, fresh simple cologne. Nothing fancy. The kind all people like. Nothing edgy, stays at the safe side.

It reminds me at the dry down of Loewe's Solo Eau De Cologne Intense a lot. The top, however, differs. Dior's is more citrous & light while Loewe is a more soapy & heavier but these two fragrances share the same path at the end of the road.

I liked it. It evoked calmness & peace in me. Exactly like how Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea fragrance did. But the price is way too much for such value. There are much better options for much cheaper price. Unless either you are really free-spending person with no financial burden or really really loved it, you shouldn't go for it.

People won't smell the price, nor would you in a couple of months.

This is very, very pleasant. Fresh, clean, crisp, and inoffensive. Although it doesn't contain neroli, it reminds me of Mugler Cologne, which I already own. If I didn't, I'd probably buy this one. It lasts long, and projects moderately.

Dior Cologne 2013,parece com Dior Homme Sport vintage , limão e limão sem gengibre,mas esse Colgne não tem a nota de limão, o que faz dele ,ele também não é cologne,mas sim eau toillete,o que traz personalidade no perfume e com caixa e frasco magnificos de lindo,aroma é maravilhoso,calmo e confortavel,fixa mediano por ser muito fresco,DHC é esportivo e elegante,dia a dia e interessante,projeção leve e sútil com um cheiro de limão ou tangerina ... a fragancia lembra branco como algodão ou gelo,Dior acertou em um perfume verão que será um sucesso na minha opinião,especialmente pra voce que gosta de aroma de limão misturado a flores.

I think to an extent you know what you're going to get with Dior...and that's quality!
Not my favourite in the Homme collection but if you want a really lovely smelling citrus & musk fragrance, you can't go wrong with this.
The bergamot, grapefruit blossom combination is really nice, and much more pleasant to my nose than the lemon & ginger of Homme sport but somehow not as challenging.
I still think it's great and the bottle is very attractive too with the frosted sides.

Got to love this stuff. DHC is a super fresh and sparky scent which hardly goes unnoticed. It is not intended to be a masterpiece but it could easily become one. I didn't like the original Dior Homme Cologne because of those overwhelming spicy and citrus notes, but this one is one-of-a-kind fragrance that exudes sensuality and freshness. Although anise is not described in its composition, I guess it is present. Thumbs up!

I had a big decant of it and I still have a big bottle of Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport. They're different. But equal in quality.

This one is more like very refreshing lemonade, it also reminds me of fresh laundry, in a good way! Chanel smells a bit more harsh in the beggining, like a sharp mix of citruses. But then that smell dissapears and spices mixed with wooods come in.

Love them both.

It is a clear and sunny day with cool breeze. A glass of lemonade and gin in my hand and I'm having a casual day. That's what I get when I tested Dior Homme Cologne 2013 twice.

I think people are putting to high expectations. At the rate these fragrance companies churn out new products, you hardly get anything that would change the trend in the industry.

Back to the cologne, it opens up with a really natural lemon note. One of the best lemon notes I smelled and I get a boozy background to it. It adds a little bitterness to it kind of like dry gin. In the mids you later get woods and musk. It is simple yeah and it does the job well. I see this being worn for office and casual day. Very suitable for hot and humid conditions.

Is it innovative? Of course not. But for a specific well known genre, it is one of the best in its class.

This is pretty linear and boring. What I get at the top seems to be the whole scent (I'm smelling pink grapefruit), and then it just gradually fades without evolving. It lasts a while on my skin though, 5-6 hours.

This one here is the PERFECT fragrance for men. It's so fresh and nice and the drydown is heavenly. And yes, it's a little bit similar to chanel homme sport cologne, but nowhere near as harsh. I tried it on my own wrist and almost bought it just so I could spray it on my sheets and pillows or wherever.

The test and is just ... wow! Delicious!

If you do not like citrus, stop reading this review ...

The first shot is of a quite pronounced citrus, I would say to "strong" (in the best sense of the term).

In the middle phase is the Dior Homme Sport (2008) original, I do not doubt (come on, I have two bottles of Dior Homme Sport 2008!).

Now (and here's the surprise),

In the drying phase horrors reminded me (so to speak) to Eau de New York by Bond No 9 and Les Colognes Hermes ...!

Actually, it is commonplace in my reviews, but: MUST HAVE (again, if you like citrus).

We will have to prove their durability and sillaje, of course.

Really different from the original Cologne. That smell that usually is compared to lipstick is gone, and in its place is the citrus. All over the scent by the way. In this case it looks now more like some other summer versions, as, for example, Burberry Summer/Summer Ice, and in some degree to Armani Code Sport and Athlete. Actually is more like the last ones than the new Dior Homme Sport. And because of that it turned to be more common too. It's ok. The best thing said about it is already in the reviews bellow: good/nice, but really nothing new.

What I don't like in summer fragrance is the price compare to the longevity most of them don't last
many people rate summer fragrance compare to winter fragrance which don't work anyway longevity of this one is good 6h and more
as scent simply a sharp lemonstic flowery not that bad I love Dior homme sport 2012 much better

Tested it last week. Very similar to DH Sport, just add some grapefruit and a barely noticeable musk. Smells very good though, and lasts a long time, and I'm honest with you, most fragrances don't last long on my skin. It can be simple, but I find it almost perfect for spring and summer, imagine yourself fresh in the morning wearing a white polo and dark jeans + DH Cologne. It is a "more formal" DH Sport if you want to see it that way. BTW, the bottle looks incredible :)

People keep saying there is no longevity. PEOPLE its a cologne version! meaning it has more alcohol content which evaporates quicker than water based (EDT) or oil based (EDP) fragrances! Plus citrus notes usually are energetic scentswhich awaken the senses (hence why they are typically used for summer and sport frangrances) and dont last as long.

In anycase I still want this.

The "DIOR HOMME" brand was a powerful drawing card for influencing my attention towards this fragrance. There is a level of brand equity I have for Dior which keeps me coming back for more!

The new Dior Homme Cologne is born into a dynasty of elite perfumery.
As we know, it's older brothers include:

Dior Homme
Dior Homme Sport
Dior Homme Intense

These formulas were all legends in their own rights. And now it is time for their baby brother to pave his own way.

I believe he has accomplished this feat. In his first few months of release the market are snatching this one up and liking what the smell. This cologne is a must have for anyone who owns the predecessors and enjoys a citrus accord.

The opening is a wonderfully fresh burst of bergamot. To my nose it is almost as if I have laid down a bunch of bergamots, limes and lemons onto the chopping board, picked up a knife and then cut them cleanly in half. What is left in the air is a fresh, crisp, zingy, zesty smell of citrus. It is an opening that is worthy of purchase alone.

The odiferous particles continue to impregnate the skin with a pleasant scent of "lemon meringue pie". I say this because it is a 'creamy citrus' rather than a 'fruit bowl citrus'. Despite the note listing of grapefruit and musk, the two combine in a way that evokes a lactonic/milky quality. The musk creates a smoothe quality.

This scent is delicate and faint. After its opening it does not project as well as its predecessors. It is the weakest in projection of the collection.
However the sillage is noticed by work colleagues,partners and friends. The people who have close proximity to you will smell this on you and enjoy it very much.

It is definitely worth purchasing if you are a fan of the "Dior Homme" line-up.
Go ahead and buy it! Yes it is far simpler, cleaner and stripped down version of the others but it is still worth a purchase. You cannot deny this is high quality.

The bottle is beautiful. Frosty, clean and classic. Equivalent of a crisp white shirt freshly laundered. Dior bottle sprayers are the best I own.

@binker - YES, this fragrance is absolutely worth owning. It's a perfect summer (and spring also btw) scent. Dior Homme Sport also is very good - but different than this one. DHS '08 is sharp(& little bit soap in the same time what I personally love) citrusy and gingery fragrance - citruses give you sharpiness and the ginger gives you that soapy feeling. DHS '12 is more woody and a little bit diluted. On my skin - with a little bit heavier with my finger on the trigger - it works as well as the previous version.

This one is very citrusy with a floral blast added to it. I purely fell in love with it also! It's not sharp, but strong and crisp in the same time. It reminds me of DHS'08(what I already have mentioned) and of Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport (without those spices). It seems to be weaker than Chanel's cologne, but to me they both are equal.

yes it's so citrus, yes it so fresh, yes it so spring and summery fragrance, but it reminds me with THE FRESH WIPES of Airplanes ,or the KFC wipes, EXACTLY the SAME, please remember my words, and check it, am sure you'll get the same smell.
That's the only thing i didn't like in it.

Is this cologne worth buying of you already own dior homme sport? Or are they too similar to own both?

I just bought this for my boyfriend as a birthday present. I like it on men. Think it's very fresh. Also, I love the "nose" who made this. Amazing artist.....just amazing ability to captivate my senses....my boyfriend likes simple clean non offensive scents that have a slight zing. Hope he likes this.

Por fin la tengo. Qué tomadura de pelo, una decepción total. Huele a puro y vulgar limón. Dura menos de 3 horas, no se percibe ni siquiera a corta distancia. En fin, ya qué puedo hacer, ni modo que vaya y se las a aviente a las vendedoras en la tienda departamental donde la compré.

Some days ago, I went to a perfume store with a list to test (winter and mostly summer ones). Let me tell you that Dior Homme Cologne 2013 wasn´t part of that list. I started to do my tests and at some point one of the employee (from Dior) asked me if she could show me the lastest Dior Cologne for men. I agreed! Man, this perfume instantely blew me away! AWESOME!!! I then sprayed a bit on my skin and the smell lasted for about 6 hours! Nice projection, although not comparable to L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme Sport! It seems to a moderate sillage.

I tell you, this perfume was a big surprise for me! FANTASTIC!!!

i love it.... but for myself! not masculine at all.it reminds me of a female scent I had years ago... i can't put my finger on it now, but the smell is really familiar to me. Fresh, citrusy, white-floral and soft musk, very natural, like walking on a field surrounded by lemon and orange trees..the problem is the price: crazy expensive, and it's a cologne... But well, is Dior and is realy high-quality and longlasting too

In the opening a lot of lemons, it's not as eau sauvage where citrus are present with other smells. Very Very lemony with a light point of white flowers.

It's not a fragrance that will change a lot with the hours, I prefer the base note, that appears after many hours, and last.

However is a very fresh fragrance. if you like cirus and lemon... you won't be disappointed.

Sillage: soft to moderate.

Longevity: very very long.

Great fragrance but crazy expensive in my country, almost 150 euro for the big bottle.

Similar but much less expensive it's Aqua Attiva by Collistar, that's only 25 euro and have better longevity also.

The opening recalls Dior Homme Sport (2008) for sure, and it's the best part of the fragrance in my opinion but after that initial blast, you have a very classic, and so "radically simple" smell (words used by Dior to describe their purpose with this Cologne 2013) that it actually turns out to be pretty boring and totally unisex.

"Dior Homme Cologne 2013" is one more interpretation of the "cologne" theme and as such, it sits pretty close to the others on the market (Mugler, Chanel, Gaultier to name a few), but with a sophistication that I find inspiring in all its olfactory banality if you know what I mean.
The perfumer has tried its best to make it project and last well, this is a perfume that does not disappoint by any means.
If only 4711 could last and project so well...since nothing beats 4711 as we all know! :-)

First for the thing which is being said too much over here by most of y'all. It is no way similar to chanel allure homme sport eau extreme or the normal one.That chanel one is soapy and different and has less longevity.But this dior 2013 homme has 6 + or even 8+ hours longevity atleast on me with 2-3 sprays.
On the contrary i rather find this one to be similar to 2008 DHS , gingery ,fresh kind of without any ginger.
The white musk in this one is the driving force behind its longevity.I bought it on 25 may 2013 with 1 spray on my wrist.After that i took a walk around somewhere and was trying to catch the fresh vibe and really peaceful feeling but somehow couldnot catch that on that day but i will re do it.This scent can take me to the vibe which i have been wanting to feel from much time.
It is fresh and precisely it gives me this feeling ->
a water fall from a cliff falling in to a river on a day with overcast sky but with no rain , cool winds blowing and its not cold too much and inside a not so much dense forest.

In my opinion, the perfect smelling scent for Spring and Summer.

It's just so fresh and overall nice, and Jude Law is great in that mediterranean ad photo, reminds me of that scenery every time I smell this.

It's different from Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport in that it does not have the spices of Chanel, but instead it is more floral, and in my opinion the scent side is a bit better. And it lasts a nice 4 to 8 hours on my skin which is decent enough for a Summer day out.

The only gripe I have with this, is its sillage. After 5-10 minutes of spraying it on my arm, it moves closer to the skin than any other scent I've tried yet. If only it was better, I would use this and only this for the whole Spring/Summer/start of Autumn period...

Scent 10/10
Longevity 6/10
Sillage 2/10

I have to say, that talking about longevity, the DHC 2013 beats the Chanel AHSCS all the way!

Chanel's Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport seems to be more sharp and seems to project better. I really like the spices in it.

This beauty seems to be more rounded, less sharp on my skin. It projects a little less than Chanel's cologne. BUT it adds something new to the lemon and sport fragrances. I really feel the flower accent! What I feel is like I'm in a citrus garden or something like that, no joke guys and girls! The lemon trees have blossoms, awesome smell! And it lasts solid 8-10 hours on me which is a perfect score for a citrus sport-kind of fragrance.

Really good job Mr Demachy!

It reminds me of two fragrances. It's simillar (and different in the same time) to Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport and Dior Homme Sport 2008.

I think that it's more comparable to Chanel's perfume. However, it seems to be weaker. To my nose, it's not! Allure HS Cologne is a sharp lemon with detectable spices in it. Dior Homme Cologne 2013 is milder, I guess it's because of the grapefruit's blossom. I would say, that Chanel has a little bit better sillage. But only a little bit on my skin. Longevity in both is very good - about 8 hours.

Dior Homme Sport 2008 opens up very lemony. Its opening and Dior Homme Cologne's 2013 opening are comparable, I would say. A blast of citruses. But then they are way different from each other. In DHS 08 we have that outstanding citrus-ginger mix. And in Cologne 13 I personally feel a kind of flowery accent added. It's still a citrus scent, but with a hint of flowers. Smells a little bit like a fresh laundry(in a good meaning of course). This is also an outstanding smell!

All in all Dior Homme Cologne 2013 a perfect choice for summer!

I don't like this one at all. Bottle design is beautiful, their ad campaign is beautiful, the color, Jude law... but the fragrance. I think I'd hoped too much(because of ad campaign) and this version didn't give me a Wow. I've known and smelt real grapefruit blossom for a long time but it's not like blossom in dior cologne. Calabrian bergamot is fresh, and I love it. It reminds me of drinking Nestea's iced tea. But it disappeared after a few seconds.
I don't love it but I think it's acceptable for Dior Homme's fans.
And Dior, please listen to your customers and bring back some great fragrances like Dior Homme 2005 or Miss Dior Cherie 2005. Thank you!

Icy, bitter citrus.

Not the kind of "lazy" citrus you get in most fresh summer scents, the bergamot smells very punchy, sharp, and refined to me.
The flowers come to complete this beautiful yet simplistic composition.
The musk comes in after like 2 hours. It's barely noticeable though.

Moderate longevity (I got 4 hours), sillage is really soft : close to skin after the first minutes. Good point is that it's refreshing without being overwhelming. Perfect for the office.

A nice clean and simple fragrance that should be nice for summer, but seems to be a bit overpriced for what it is (90 Euros here). The bottle looks amazing. Unisex ? Certainly.


Overall I like it, a truly nice citrus.

I like this perfume, but I thinks it isn't really suitable for a man. I would prefer to smell it on woman.
I think it's too citrucy and reminds me of Portofino (from Escales series in Dior).

Unisex, but I like it very much. After half an hour it smells of white musk and vague citrus for a long time, and the power is only in the first 30 minutes. Actually I think I must be a little analsmic to the musks they use because I hardly smell anything, although my girlfriend says my skin smells nice. But I still like it. It smells like lemon and lime.

This was a surprise. I didn't expect anything great but found Dior Homme Cologne to be somewhat different than the ever so similar new, fresh masculines.

The freshness here is not "sporty", not straight forward citrusy nor is it a splash of calone.
It is fresh in a more traditional, bitter way, yet the vibe is absolutely modern.
Juicy, bitter ginger and woody dryness dominate here, more than citrus. There is some bitter boozyness in here, like in a Gin Long Drink or a gin tonic.

A similar fragrance that comes into mind is Guerlain Homme L'Eau, also dry and woody, boozy, supposedly rum. There is a similar minus too: Both colognes are linear. What you first smell is all you get.
(I do not find this that similar with D&G Light Blue for women. Reason: Light Blue has tons of patchouli, Dior Homme Cologne has very little.)

The more I wear it, the more I like it and actually I think I'm starting to love it.

It reminds me of one more fragrance - Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne. But this one is more subtle, maybe a little bit lighter. Allure Sport Cologne is sharper.

Of course the main note here is lemon. Fresh squeezed lemon juice, that's what I feel after application on my skin. It's refreshing and actually, once when I used it in winter, I also got that fresh feeling. So you can easily use it whole year long.

In my first review I said very good, now - I'm saying perfect!

Tremendo fracaso, así se podría resumir mi experiencia.

Esperaba otra cosa.
Después de tener TODAS las vesiones de Dior Homme, con esta he tenido una desagradable sorpresa.

Si ya existe la versión SPORT, para qué tener esta ?

Es demasiado similar a la versión sport, algo menos amarga, pero básicamente la misma.

No logro encontrarle parecido la la versión clásica. Esta nueva es demasiado cítrica y suave como para poder compararla. PREFIERO LA VERSION COLOGNE ANTIGUA.

La duración es pésima, apenas 2 horas y desaparece completamente.

En resumidas cuentas ; parece que Dior no sabe como ahorrar en sus perfumes y en sus perfumistas.

For me this one is a very fresh lemony scent. It reminds me fresh made lemonade. I adore lemon scents but fresh ones, like this. I don't like heavy lemons like YSL Pour Homme. This cologne reminds me Chanel Allure Edition Blanch, but it's not so creamy, more transparent lemon. Longevity and sillage are fine for a summer citrus scent, but don't expect miracles.

Pros: Nice bottle, fresh bergamotte dominates 1 hour.

Cons: way to expensiv. For me this one is a more ordinary Cologne that you can find much cheaper on other several brands (ACQUA cologne Vetyver & Bergamot by 4711). Musky drydown is a love or hate experience as it smells more earthy.
Sillage is poor and longevity OKAY.

I think bergamotto di calabria by acqua di parma does a much better job in that category. Thierry Mugler Cologne is a very nice pick too, but more flowery. Compare it yourself.

overall average 4 out of 10

I'm still testing this one, but I can surely say I love it.

When I read the notes, I thought to myself: what a simplistic composition! Will it work? And I have to say, yes it did work!

This fragrance really reminds me of good old Dior Homme Sport 2008. It's very citrusy with a floral accent - yes, I can feel the grepefruit blossom here! At the end it's getting a bit warmer, but only a little bit, I think it's because of the musk.

The longevity is very good - it's a cologne and I get 8 hours with it. Sillage and projection are also better, comparing to the "standard" cologne concentration.

It is far better than Dior Homme Sport 2012 - I can say it without a doubt.

Very, very good!

Very close to Allure homme sport cologne indeed...80% of this plus 20% of the original dior homme sport and you get this. The sillage longevity of Allure is very good and does project like an EDT. definitely, if you have AHSC you do not need this, but if you have dior homme sport, this is different.
The main difference between dior and allure is the fir note that takes Allure into a more woody/spicy way....but the two perfumes are twin brothers.
I prefer AHSC my self

This one smells good and very fresh. It reminds me of Chanel Cologne Sport and Armani Code Sport Athlete. Lasting power around 8 hours and pretty good for a cologne. This one should be named Dior Sport rather than Dior sport 2012 as the scent is very classy and sophisticated. But both are good fragrances..now a battle between Francois Demachy and Jacques Polge..

The first scent in the Dior Homme range which doesn't put me off, what's more - I find it lovely! No connection with the original whatsoever (and thank God for it!) Instead quality citruses that are not reminiscent of air resfreshers. A really simple, unobtrusive, crisp summer cologne in a fabulous bottle. A big thumb-up! Btw, it does bear similarity to Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne but it lacks Chanel's cologne's herbal note.

Well, it seems to me that I'm becoming a minimalism fan. That is really good - fine raw materials, measured proportions. Fresh, simple, clean, airy.
No connection to other Dior Homme editions, but that's ok for me.
Develops beautifully on proper skin - I suggest that the warmer is better in this case.
Never too citrusy, never overwhelming, but has surprising longevity. 9/10 if you are the right canvas for it and if you like this type of perfume.

A fragrance very close to the new version of Dior Homme Sport (2012), maybe more citrus and less ginger. It does last, it smells good, but Sport was enough. Vintage Dior Homme EDT was marvellous, and Eau Sauvage Parfum is also a masterpiece with cologne notes, floral absolutes and amber. A meh release I could say...

This is really a cologne: fresh, clear and not to heavy. At the first spray I could feel the Grapefruit blossom and the bergamot. You know, for a Cologne, the longevity is strong with this one, stayed on my skin for more than 8 hours.
I am actually having a hard time in which one to pick for summer this year: Dior Homme Cologne 2013 or CK One Summer 2013?
Anyway this is a great arrival to the market, a 8/10 in my book.

I tried it yesterday with high hopes but was a bit disappointed : very aggressive citrus cologne at first spray. It reminds me of the first version of the Dior Homme Sport, if you remember, before they added the iris, and without the ginger. On the drydown, it smells much better and tends to smell a bit like Chanel Allure Cologne. It really is a cologne actually, and I think I will have to try it again on warmer days to check whether it does not have a totally different aspect under such conditions. I will therefore wait until April or may to give it a second try.

The bottle is very nice and classy.

I really don't understand why they did not continue the first version of their cologne which was really good in my opinion, and wearable on all seasons and all circumstances, keeping the originality of the EDT version, only a little lighter, and easy for summer.

Edit August 2013 : tested under hot summer weather, I have to reconsider my first review and admit it is perfect as a refreshing and energetic perfume in summer.

Nice!!! Dior has they own individual base in ALL their fragrances!!! And it's awesome!!! Independently, is it Dior Homme new, Dior Homme Sport old or new, Doir Homme Intense old or new...base (not base notes) is the same!! Cool ;^) I don't know what is it, but it's characteristic feature of Francois Demachy, it's his signature!

Tried this one today. Nice, though nothing new. Dior Homme Cologne is a light modern citrusy cologne. I feel citruses (a tangerine type) on a soft (like a cotton fabric!) musky base. Reminds of Dior Homme Sport without ginger or twice less strong Allure Homme Sport Cologne Sport. No connections with old Dior Homme Cologne.
