There is a fuss that this is a "superb" scent, but to me the smell is just ok. The scent has a mild but lasting smell that is fresh, a bit green, with a tiny feeling that is caracteristic of some oriental scents. That's not bad, but not great either; in fact is much more a common scent than anything else. Maybe I´ve tried so many scents already ... Original Higher is better.

If I'm not mistaken, back then in 2005, (bought for my husband) i remember how strong and powerful the projection was. Similarities of the old and newer batch are the longevity and the scent itself, but projection.
It's more of a skin-scent now.

Most all of Dior's frag's are excellent...I was so lucky to find Higher Energy which is a really well rounded fragrance during the spring and summer months.
When I tried it on my wrist I'm able to smell a unique herbal/floral aroma with juniper berries, labdanum and musk giving it a real sweet tone. After it settles , I can also pick up citrus/green notes from grapefruit, pineapple and mint. The top notes work together beautifully having a unique vib.
The base notes really elevate this amazing juice giving it a woodsy/spicy aroma with sandalwood, oakmoss, pepper, nutmeg and a touch of incense a gorgeously fragrance.
Longevity is very good well past 6hrs...if you layer it you could extend to 8hrs. Silage is moderate, it's just enough which is what you want in a summer fragrance.
Overall thoughts,
I consider myself lucky that I was able to find this FABULOUS frag knowing that it's been discontinued several years ago. When I wear it I'm always being told how good I smell. Several people asked me what it's called, when I told them that it wasn't available they were surprised why Dior wouldn't still sale it?
Rating this fragrance is easy... a nice fragrance could only have 4★★★★.

Dior'un belki de en özensiz ve super market parfümü. Alkol oranı sıkıldığı an biraz fazla ama bir kaç saniyede buharlaşıyor. Hafif tatlı, çiçekli, meyveli karışık. Gerçekten ismine uygun bir koku. Kesinlikle tamamen yazlık bir koku. Kadınsı diye yorum yapanların aksine ben çok kadınsı olmadığını ama unisex kullanıma müsait olduğunu düşünüyorum. Çok çok daha kalıcı alternatifleri olmasına rağmen özellikle genç arkadaşlara çok yakışacaktır. Nedendir bilmem ama kokuyu sıkınca aklıma hafif sarışın veya kumral tipte tercihen atletik ama en azından benim gibi hımbıl olmayan bir erkek tipi canlandı. İlk sahip olduğumda kış mevsimi olduğundan o sırada biraz çekingen bir his uyandırmıştı. Kış soğuklarında kokunun etkisini çok hissedemediğim halde havalar ısındıkça daha bir kalıcı hale geldiğini fark ettim. Koku gerçekten güzel. Hatta havalar ısındıkça çok saldırgan bir karaktere büründüğünü anlıyorum. Çünkü çok az kullandığım ılık bir bahar gününde bile 1 saat sonra açık havada 5-6 metre uzağımdaki insanlar birden "çok güzel bir parfüm koktu" diye konuşmaya başladı. Ancak yine de kokunun sentetik yapısı aklıma market parfümlerini getiriyor. O sebeple Türkiye'deki normal satış fiyatlarını biraz yüksek buluyorum. İndirimde yakalarsanız alın kullanın. Sevmeyeni çıkmaz.

Koku Güzelliği 8/10
Fiyat Performans 5/10
Kalıcılık 6/10

No where near similar to Dior Higher, but also really good.

Fresh scent. The topnotes have a slight rubbery smell in it, which I really like. Furthermore it's citrus, but not the regular stuff. When it dries down I get a warm, spicy and fruity-nice afterglow.


8,5/10

To me - Dior Higher Energy is spicy woody aromatic. I didn't read carefuly the notes in it, but first spray on my skin almost immediately reminded me of crushed juniper berries! Later on it gets quite aromatic - I guess it'd be nutmeg, not so sure about pepper. But when it dried down totally, it dissapointed me a little bit. I get no incense at all... Drydown of Higher Energy is an energetic load of grapefruit, at least on my skin.
And, basically that's all what that fragrance is to me... I was expecting more incense, like this one in Bleu de Chanel, got something totally different. I guess it's a good choice for spring and summer, but, sadly, it's not what I'm looking for.
Longevity is average - about 5-6 hours on my skin, sillage is medium.
Maybe it's not a total let down, but I think I'll pass on this one...

Light, young, and quite expensive. Nutmeg and citrus notes are the most dominant to my nose. You can smell that it is good quality and it can be used on almost every occasion.

I kinda like it, but in the long run it becomes a little boring. Will probably give away the leftovers to someone who appreciates it more than I.

I got this for my younger brother. It's so fresh and 'energetic'.
I identified the pepper, nutmeg, mint, incense, sandalwood and musk. I guessed that there was lemon but obviously it's grapefruit.

The dry down for me has more pineapple and melon in it along with the musk that anchors this perfume and sandalwood.
It's amazing, could be worn during the day all year long. It's long lasting and the sillage is incredible.

I wonder if I could get away with wearing it hahahaha, will def update if a lady could wear this :P

A nose-stroking scent with a fabolous longevity.

Though there are numerous rivals for this platform of the scent, but yet it's something distinctive and unique.

Initial phase starts up so fresh with a touch of zest of citrus and pinneaple with freshness of the mint. Not insulting or intense at all, considering the top phase. Really impressing and divine.

Very quickly the middle phase launches with spicy notes and a touch of bitterness. Again, a very cool cute scent.

The dry down notes are a feat, cool and still feeling a touch of bitterness, aromatic but you can feel spice there. To me, at this point, it's close to it's predecessor, Higher. Also feels close to Chanel Allure Homme COLOGNE Sport (2007), in the pepper and citrus aspects.

6 whiffs worked for over 10 hours on my neck. In the end it appeared close to the skin, but sensibly present. It's mostly for day time, but nothing would go wrong wearing it at night: it has a bitter dark side also.

A great scent for the heat, specially spring time. It's supposed to be Dior!

Like other reviews said, it is hard to believe this is a Dior fragrance(heavy and potent), this one is really crisp and fresh with slight mellow sweetness with hints of floral and fruity. Projection quite linear across 3 notes, turning from light to lighter scent across the notes. It stay close to skin but still noticeable. It somehow remind me a mild version of CK Eternity (Lavender sweetness) cross with Truth (Green fresh).

Not bad choice for summer/ sport fragrance, except a short longevity. 6/10 from me.

Found it and git it ! I was estranged from higher energy as all retailers were saying it has been discontinued... Don't know if that's the case but I just scored a 100 nl edt ! Of this fresh, happy, uplifting great juice. I don't care if its too young for me :-) I like it. It is an energiser, far superior to boss energize since its a Dior ! Any how, I think its sophisticated and the best of the fruity woody fragrances around. It reminds me of something else.- some other fragrance - but cannot nail it right now. For those who have not tried it, its a 'must explore'fragrance ! Recommended.

I don't know for me it fulfills that 'clean' summer fragrance requirement which higher does not, so I am more inclined towards this.

i just bought this, as i was looking for a summer-spring fragrance. i've read in a lot of reviews that this scent lacks sofistication, and would be more apropiate for teenagers.

as i smelled it i didn't think of any teenager at all. i'd say it's appropiate for a young man, but not a teenager. don't base your opinion on a paper sample, try it on your skin; at first it smells rather common, but those are just the citruses on the opening notes. once you let it land, it will be like a flower blossoming; letting new peppery and musky smells arise.

not for winter, but i would recommend this fragrance to anyone looking for a nice spring scent. it's true, it doesn't scream out loud "i'm here", but it really smells great when close to the person wearing it, and is not one more of those cheap spring fragrances like hugo's or ralph lauren's crap.

A muted version of Allure Homme. I had this for a few months and found myself using it more than my other fragrances. It whispers but you're aware of it's presence. The quality shines even when the note composition is minimalistic.

Very similar to Hugo Energise. Including the notes are very similar. Refreshing as an orange gum. The cost is higher than each of the Hugo Boss

It's hard not to love "Higher Energy"!
It is so bright, so cheerfull so sweet and uplifting!
A positive man with a bright smile that's the person this perfume is made for.
Easily loveable and optimistic! And simple and gorgeous!
All boys should try this perfume and if you can't afford it just go for its cheaper equivalent.
You know what's that, don't you?
"Of a man" from Body Shop, of course. :)

Higher Energy by Dior is a fragrance soft and sweet, gourmand notes in the opening as the melon and pineapple make it tasty, pepper and incense in the heart stronger, vetiver, musk and labdanum among others give a roundness syrupy.Ideal in spring and summer when the heat with his notes enhance.A my opinion looks like a Good Life by Davidoff, although the latter is more pungent. Reminded the outdoor parties with frozen drinks, smoothies fruit and ice cream, all on the edge of a huge swimming pool and fountains bright.
Dior never lets you ......
Very good to try.

Higher Energy is a light one. Definitely.

I had it as a gift, when I was 17. Good for that age, good for the summer.

But not nowadays. Wouldn't buy it again. Too light and non-masculine scent.

I didn't like this at first, but I came to quite like this - it has a peppery, musky, vanilla "waft" to it - but fresh too! But as people have commented - it's not very original, but, it is well blended. The sillage is very nice too, it sort of grabs your attention. I think it is similar to Allure by Chanel but this is more peppery. Higher Energy grows on you!

Refreshes, uplifts you immediately. Very easy to wear, light but has a character.
Every Dior fragrance has some sort of refinement and originality even if other fragrances include many similar notes and this is no exception. Gets great compliments too.
A must sample if you look for a spring fragrance.

I like how this fragrance smells on me. Not fruity at all. It is light and fresh and powerful at the same time. The green notes in it make this a refreshing scent I will reach on a hot and sunny day. The scent didn't change when it mixed with sweat, which make this one good for wearing to the gym. A cold shower in a bottle!

[***---] Sporty take on the bolder, crazier Dior Higher. Much less schizophrenic, but also less original. Citrus scent that remains citrusy throughout. Some vetiver/green notes at the end. Could last longer. Handsome design.
