The first version of Dior Homme Sport fragrance came out in 2008. The reformulation of Dior Homme Sport from 2012, made as a more elegant and powdery variation, is replaced by this new edition in February 2017. Dior Homme Sport "rediscovers itself" like a scent of "urban, sophisticated and sexy nonchalance," guided by the idea of a fast and dynamic lifestyle.

Dior's in-house perfumer Francois Demachy created all the previous versions of this fragrance. The new version is created with the addition of "extreme" fruits, "explosive" notes, spices, herbs and woods. Citrus accords of lemon, blood orange and grapefruit open the composition. The spicy heart includes notes of pink pepper and nutmeg, lying on the woody base of sandalwood and vetiver.

The bottle was also renovated with a softer color of liquid and a more "refined" packaging. The face of the advertising campaign is actor Robert Pattinson, and the motto is "Life is a Playground."

The fragrance is available as a 50, 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette.

Perfume rating: 4.13 out of 5 with 215 votes.

Dior Homme Sport 2017 Fragrance Reviews

Raidthesaladbar
Raidthesaladbar

Early afternoon in a conference room on the top floor of 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris. A giant, amorphous black blob, Dior's head of marketing, is doing focus testing. The new marketing intern, still in his human form, is sitting next to him with a pencil and clipboard. On the opposite side of the table sits a young guy who only goes by "Dude", chosen from thousands of applicants to represent the average target customer. Right now, he's sniffing a blotter labeled "DHS 2012".

"Bruh, what's that powdery shit in the background? It smells, like, totally like my sister's makeup bag. It makes me feel insecure about my masculinity."

Marketing Intern, tongue between his teeth, is scribbling eagerly.

"Can't have that shit in my cologne, bruh. I need to smell manly when I go to the club to pick up chicks, or when I even li..." He gets distracted by a fly crawling from his flip-flops up his sweatpants.

Marketing Blob clears one of his throaty orifices to regain his attention. "How would you improve it?"

"It needs to be fresher... like Bleu de Chanel. If it's not fresh, it's an old-man scent."

"So you're insecure about your youth too?"

"Yeah, bruh. And I need constant validation, like compliments. Especially from chicks. And Fragranceyokel on Youtube said that BdC is 100% proven to be the best panty-dropper ever."

Marketing Intern turns over another page on his clipboard.

____________________________________________________

Later that day, in the dark dungeon far below street level. An elderly, bespectacled man is huddled over blotters and vials, his left leg chained to the wall. The door opens, and Marketing Blob slithers in.

"François, I have the latest test results for the new Dior Homme Sport. We're gonna take out the iris completely."

The man adjusts his glasses, bemused. "But that's what made the fragrance unique and interesting! If we remove the iris, it has literally nothing to do with Dior Homme anymore - it's gonna be yet another generic sports fragrance!"

The blob gurgles menacingly. "Do you like having a job, François?"

The man named François sighs. "Fine. What do we do about the drydown? Without the iris, it's just gonna smell like synthetic woody crap."

"We tell people it's sandalwood. They have no clue what actual sandalwood smells like anyway."

Marketing Blob is about to leave, but he briefly turns around again. "Oh, before I forget." One of his many orifices bubbles open, spitting out a slightly soggy bottle of Dawn dishsoap. François picks it up with two fingers, a consternated look on his face. "What's that?"

"We're reformulating Fahrenheit again. According to the latest marketing data, this is what we're going for - get cracking."

huge dior fan but this one is a huge miss. why would they take out the beautiful and classy signature note of iris i will never know. the mix of citrus and spiciness of ginger mixed with powdery floral iris was sublime. the new version is just a bland citrus been there done that fragrance. i would stock up on the old version before its gone. dior you let me down with this one. the vintage was a classy summer scent something i actually use to wear with a suit. the new one is strictly in your gym bag fragrance. sad.

After being a long time fan of Dior products, I couldn't wait to get this release! I went to my local Sephora to get a whiff and try a sample. Unfortunately, Sephora had the bottle but no sample to try. So without hesitation I purchased this on a blind buy. Wow, what a huge disappointment. Well upon the initial spray on my wrist, I got a small reminder of the previous versions, however after waiting and waiting for this to come alive, it never happened. This is some weak juice and at $80 for a 2.5 bottle,it is a waste. The notes are muted and unnoticeable, and the notes that I faintly smelled lasted only 3 hours at best. Luckily Sephora has a great return policy. This is going back. What is happening with these top notch designers consistently releasing these subpar products? keep in mind that this is on my skin and might be a great fragrance on somebody else.

Grapefruit. sexy sporty with a bit of woods in the background. Cannot go wrong with this for spring/summer. Great for the gym! I do like the 2012 more because it is a bit more elegant and unique due to the iris but performance is way better on this one!

I don't understand why something like this is called Dior Homme Sport. "Sport": ok. But "Dior Homme": no. I really don't see anything of the original's DNA.

I'll try to avoid being derogatory. It's only recently that I've been trying to analize scents. And any flanker with the word "sport" had roughly any chance of pleasing me. I will not say it's bad. It's just not my taste. It does not fit my style. But I do understand the broad appeal.

With this one I have the same feeling as I do with Égoïste Platinum: take a very innovative and unique perfume, change it completely and throw in ingredients to make it look macho and generic in the best possible way. My resolution lasted for about four sentences and here I am criticizing already... I'm sorry I find this perfume so boring and ordinary.

I mean, fans of Dior Homme might even blind buy it and be very disappointed. What's the point?

OMG what have they done...
The opening is so simple and generic its almost off-putting, after couple of minutes some complexity starts to reveal and till the end of the middle notes the scent is nice freshy and has resemblance to the older version.
The drydown... sauvage and friends.. and dior sport just jumped on the same wagon.
Just by the sillage if some one would pass by me with this scent i could not tell, by any means, what "suavage" type of fragrance it is.. .
Where is the beautiful iris? Where is the playful ginger? WHY?

This is nice. Just nice.

It's citrusy, clean, and creamy -- everything you'd want in an easy to wear cologne, particularly for those who are averse to sharp summer scents.

I'm glad to own a bottle when I need something quality, well-blended, and simple -- but I'd be hard-pressed to convince someone this is anything more than that.

Okay, well, this is probably the dissapointment of the year
And not because its a shitty version of the earlier fragrance, but because it is not different enough. Oh, I expected so much of it. I wanted it to be a sophisticated Light Blue (Dark blue?), but I got a slightly more wearable 2012 DHS.
Way too cloying for the summer. It could pass for early spring or fall. I will sure give it a chance then, but for now, it just saddens me how much of a letdown this is...

This starts off with citrus top notes, but the sandalwood/nutmeg base dominates the scent and can be quite cloying. Also, it has a bit of an unoriginal purfumey sort of smell. This is a spring fragrance, but it is heavy. I'd say it's a scent for March, since March is still at least as cold as November. However, I'll probably always find ways to talk myself out of wearing this even in March since it's just not that good.

Scent: CK one(top)+Sauvage(base);
Longevity: 3-5 hours on skin, 24 hours plus on shirt;
Projection: it gives 30min-1 hr arm length projection then sadly turns into skin scent;

It is a weak scent on my skin but it lasts on my shirt for almost 2 days and smells quite different in a good way. I would defintely buy it if it works well with my body chemistry. Go try it in store, the citrusy sparkling top notes are quite uplifting. It definitely is a crowd pleaser.

I am rather disappointed with Dior over the 2017 reformulation of DHS. They have effectively taken what was a very nicely balanced green citron fragrance that smelled VERY natural and refreshing and replaced it with a new release that seems to be just a hodge podge of aspects of other modern successful citrus/sport fragrances but without any real personality of its own, perhaps hoping to reach as broad a target market as possible. While admittedly pleasant in parts, to my nose it is inferior to the 2012 release, smelling like a combination of the fresh orange citrus notes of Clinique happy and maybe Allure Homme Sport mixed with some of the overly heavy, creamy and sweet vibe of Allure Sport Eau Extreme/Versace Eros/Ultra Male with a slight underlying mintiness. No ginger, no cedar, no iris. The blood orange citrus combo is very pleasant, but it seems to be quickly overshadowed by the heavier notes and I would imagine that this could become very cloying in high heat( in relatively moderate heat I found it far too sweet). The spicy notes also seem a little jarring or ill fitting, as if the fragrance was just pulling in too many different directions to be cohesive. With that said, it is not terrible by any means and I'm sure many will find it quite appealing, but it is not for me. Another one bites the dust eh! Au revoir 2012, it was nice knowing you.

This is a pleasant perfum but I prefer the 2012 version which is much spicier ad greener than this.
Not bad with similar Auto that is very familiar with Homme Sport version love the blood orange and cedre combo is good.

But still will miss 2012 version.

I think if it was named differently and not going to replace the older version people would love it more.

Guys, are you really implying that it's a worse fragrance? I actually find it pretty similiar, maybe because I didn't get much iris from the last version, but it certainly isn't the end of the world. Dior Homme lineup always was and will be the pinacle of elegant perfumes and don't let anyone talk you otherwise. The opening kinda reminds me of Issey Miyaki, but the drydown and heart... oh my those are pleasant.

Having tested this several times over the course of a few weeks, side by side comparison at that, I found myself preferring the 2012 version. I also have a 5ml decant kicking about.

This is a citrus scent with a touch of that Dior Homme scent lingering through the whole ride. As a summer scent I can only see myself using it for formal to be honest, and it's that Dior lipstick vibe that makes it so.

This is a good scent, longevity is good as well.

In saying all this I can't recommend this for anyone. You would do well by grabbing another from the Dior Homme line if that is something you want to get into. If you want a citrus summer scent, day or night, casual to formal, then you would do well looking elsewhere. It's fresh but not fresh enough for summer. Look to the Sauvage line if you're hell bent on getting a decent Dior summer citrus scent.

I am really at the end of my rope with Dior , Francois has changed every single fragrance in the whole line 5 times . Discontinued many and now this ! It's just too much . There was nothing wrong with this fragrance before . I bought it for a friend and it was excellent . I don't even want to try it . Dior has ruined too many fragrances I loved . Done .

Now i'm definitely sure that some fragrance lines gets a lot of compliments just because of their names. Don't get me wrong - this is a nice perfume but nothing special. A plesant bittersweet citrus opening, followed by creamy heart and a little disappointing drydown, which reminds me of cheap body spray. But when you look the like/dislike section everybody "LOVE" this. Come on - Dior Homme line truly has a very good and original fragrances, but not this one. This is nothing better than Armani Code Colonia for example - a nice ordinary flanker, which is made just because the market nowadays requires constantly something new.

Sprayed in on paper a week ago and it smelt pretty decent. Like a mixture of 2013 Cologne and 2012 Sport. Stayed on the paper for quite some time too.

Went to Macy's today and sprayed heavily on my wrist. The opening is pleasant but it's been 5 hours since applying it and I really have to press it in my arm to get a scent. On paper it's fine, but on the skin it goes generic "cologney" real fast. It's a creamy citrus and that's about it; not creamy like Ultra Zest or a creamsicle, just sweet and citrusy. This is neither original nor exciting, but another money grab from Dior. This is less interesting than 2013 Cologne, 2012 Sport, and 2008 Sport. This is about as interesting as Jimmy Choo Man. Fans of that scent, Hugo Boss The Scent, Mont Blanc Legend (any of them), and Gucci Guilty will like this one. Those of you who want something interesting, daring, unique, or of high quality look elsewhere, you'll find none of it here or on 80% of the designer men's fragrances at Macy's today. I'd rather wear Poison Girl Eau De Toilette than this, and I have it on my other wrist. Sweet vanilla and sunscreen citrus, still more interesting and complex than this.

A citrus-sandalwood fragrance which has poor projection but very good longevity..

I applied 6 heavy sprays

0 - 2 hours - 3 inch projection. You are hit with a citrus and a bit too much sandalwood. It has that "thin" feel like 2012 version, and lacks depth.

2 hours - 8 hours -1 inch projection tops. This fragrance lacks projection but it is very strong on the skin, almost acidic. The sandalwood calms down and I am surprised to see the scent pyramid have Sandalwood only in the dry down, this is not the case, it is there from the start.

8 hours - 12 hours. Still quite strong on the skin but a skin scent

The 2017 bottle design is similar to Dior Cologne 2007.The stem has a similarity to Dior Sport 2008 stem.


2012 Version = Citrus & Iris. Why Iris?

2017 Version - Citrus & a tad too much Sandalwood - Why Sandalwood? Sandalwood is better for cooler times imho, not summer or sport. Only use it sparingly for the summer, alas, they put a little more than was needed and this unhinged the whole fragrance for me

2008 Version = Citrus & ginger - They compliment each other and it worked for Summer. Why fix a ship when it is not broken? Maybe Dior had to? Who knows? 2008 is miles better than the other two, it is in a different league altogether IMHO...

Not for me

I was excited to try this one after hearing the note breakdown. I bought a decant and eagerly sprayed my arm. I enjoyed the strong citrus of the opening but once it dried down I found it generic in the extreme. It reminded me of one of the Polo (color) colognes. Very happy I didn't blind buy a full bottle. If this is Dior's idea of an improvement, I hate to see what they do with Eau Sauvage Parfum...

I bought this fragrance two weeks ago. At first, i was not sure and excited, but now l love this version. Overall :
. top not = orange creamy
. dry down = woody
. longevity = 10 hours +
. sillage = smooth

It's an elegant scent.

I will wait the warm weather to wear Dior homme sport 2017.

I thought it would smell fresher than it actually does. It comes off as too heavy. It's been warm weather here lately, and it's just too cloying. Projection and longevity are great though.

I asked a couple of girls at work what they thought, and they liked it from a distance. When they smelled where I had sprayed, it was too much for both of them. Keep that in mind if you're going on a date, and plan on getting close later on.

I was disappointed, and I gave it away.

Dior fragrances have this special strong personality traits blending confidence with perseverance. " I have arrived and I am here". Once you spray this on, you feel like going for an adventure you always wanted to accomplish. It is really seductive and fulfilling for the soul to breathe this intoxicating aroma that projects very well causing others to feel your presence and prioritize it. To be rated 10/10, this fragrance is way better than the annoying ginger bomb 2012 or the linear 2008 version. Try it. and Thank me.

Excellent! Unlike sauvage which is getting all the hype.

Citrusy fresh with some spice and sweetnes, very versatile. Despite being somewhat generic its good. Also makes it so its versatile... not only for sunmer. Doesn't have a synthetic vibe.

This should be getting attention... actially no just keep wearing and hyping the subpar dior sauvage.

Less men wearing this, more for me and also helps with remaining unique.

Could be signature scent.

기존 디올 옴므 스포츠의 느낌을 좋아합니다.
그러나 착향시 그 특유의 진저향이 저는 감당하기 힘들더라고요. 그래서 2017버전은 환영입니다. 진저 대신 핑크 페퍼로 기존의 느낌을 내려하는 것 같습니다.
디올 옴므 스포츠의 특색은 사라졌을지 몰라도 보다 대중적인 향수로 자리잡게 될 것입니다.
우디+매콤함을 좋아하지만 무겁지 않는 향수를 찾는 분에게는 좋은 선택이 될 것입니다.
복장은 어떤 복장과도 어울릴 것이며 봄 여름 초가을까지, 직장에서는 무난한 데일리 향수로 쓸 수 있겠네요.

The 2008 version is by far the best. It is a masterpiece and definitely the best fresh fragrance i have smelled. And it has much better performance (8 hours) than 2012 and 2017.
I really don't understand why they discontinued it and released worse and worst versions.

I don't know the previous versions but the 2017 smells old and cloying. It is a very simple perfume, the kind that makes gyms lockerooms smell bad. Must be especially terrible in combination with sweat. This is not fresh, it is like a toilette spray.

Hi all. Had a few questions. I might of located a 2008 version of Dior homme sport in sephora. It has the black box in the middle. And rest of box is white. Borders around the black are red I believe. I asked the woman in sephora if this was the old version. They were unsure. Next to it was the 2012 version. The 2008 was a 1.7 oz. pretty sure it will be the 2012 price for that size. Is this worth picking up. Will the juice still be ok. Or is 2017 version better. Also never smelled 2008, I have smelled 2017 version and do like it. I am in ny. Long Island. Maybe all sephoras have the 2008 still on the shelves. Any insight is appreciated

Sampled this over weekend and I really liked it, but it's so much drier/woodier than I'd have thought by reading the note ratios above.

It opens very citric and spicy, but I was expecting a ton of sweetness from the blood orange that I just never got, and the wood/vetiver base is much stronger than I thought it'd be.

Usual impressive quality from Dior - very nice. Very much the "sporty" fresher-drier flanker for DH.

Dior Homme Sport Edition Blanche Cologne is what this should be called.

Smells like Dior Homme Sport but softer, creamier, lighter, and fresher.

The 2012 version was really a strong ginger, too much for me. And it was much "manlier" than this one. But it was heavy, woody, ginger, citrus.

This one is softer. It's more subtle. It's rounded on all edges. It's got a slight creaminess too, like how Jacques Polge made his perfumes. I think it strays far enough from the 2012 that it could have been it's own perfume.

But I think the performance and projection is less than the 2012 for sure.

A great smelling fragrance, which in my opinion is better overall than the 2012.

Yeah, this smells nice and is more "sporty"/casual than the 2012 version. It goes in a similar direction with Allure Homme sport (and Edition Blanche). Obviously Dior doesn't skimp on quality, it performs better than most fresh EDTs. I really wanted to be blown away by this one since I usually like things from Dior, especially their fresh scents. However, this just seems like a nicer version of a normal citrus sporty scent. I guess Sauvage was also just the best fragrance in its class and it took a while for that one to grow on me. But for now I think that the Chanels are better, especially for the price.

This is a much stronger performing scent firstly. I get a solid 8 hours from this and my skin eats scents like hippies eat kale. Secondly it is a much more complex and interesting scent than the previous version. The 2012 version was more of a "freshie" so to speak whereas this version is not so easily defined. I find this far superior the the cologne, which honestly I have never understood the praise. This is similar to Chanel allure sport in that is a more interesting take on the fresh citrus scent.

Totally agree with the reviewer according to which this scent is very similar to Chanel Allure Home Sport - it is a "creamy" and "salted/spicy" citric (apropos, Francois Demachy worked with Jacques Polge on Chanel Homme Sport and they are, in my opinion, the best team in the history of fragrances).

Unlike its counterpart from Chanel, Dior Sport is more natural, more youthful, but less complex, and choosing red orange (which predominates in the mix of citrus) can be a risky choice as this fruit has a floral side/flavor that make it extensively used in feminine fragrances (see Chanel Chance Eau Vive for example), but given the specificity of the line "Homme" from Dior, perhaps the choice was made intentionally.

If for 2-3 hours it smells as a "creamy" red orange, later the basenotes takes the control and I notice a moderate projection and a very impressive longevity for a fresh fragrance.

Compared to the 2012 version is clearly a superior product, but not at the same level with other masculine fragrances of this brand: Dior Higher or Dior Homme Cologne.

First off, I hate Sauvage; it gives me a headache and this does not smell similar. Does is garner compliments, yes, but so will DHS2017. They are only alike in their freshness
There are similarities to 2012, but no sickening iris; this juice is FRESH.
The longevity is great, but not beastly.
Sillage-I had a sprayed card in my pocket and was asked twice within an hour about the fragrance I had on. I was wearing Aventus and asked which one they were smelling (my neck -Aventus or DHS17 that I pulled out of my pocket to let them smell). Both said DHS17
Compliments-I asked 14 women at work to rate it off the card on a scale of 1-10. All but one gave it a "9" or "10" with many them changing their body language after smelling. The lone person that didn't give it a "9" or "10" gave it a "7"

This is simply amazing!!! I never thought I'd like something from Dior except Sauvage. I hated Iris in Homme line and in sport, as well as ginger. It was a good frag but whit a few notes that bothered me enough not to buy it.

But this... I thought I wouldn't like it as people have been saying that is close to a 2012 version. That is a lie, at least for me. This starts as a sharper sweet orange citrus mixed with such a smooth lemon. Very very classy and blended to perfection. Refreshing note that would work so well in blazing summer days and hot nights. Not cloying at all. This sharpness dies down quickly and opens up to a woody sandalwood heart with light citrus that is so gentle and ultra classy masculine. After that it smoothly transitions into this perfect sweet pear mixed with gentle vetiver dry down. Vetiver isn't sharp, dirty but blends so well with that is sweet pear... it combines very masculine vetiver with a gentle sweet pear. I'd say this is a perfect combo... sweetness tones down the sharpness of vetiver, and vetiver tones down that pear sweetness so it's not over the top. The result is heavenly, pear vetiver. You simply gotta try it to love it and understand how well this combo works.

This fragrance screams classy and summer. Top refreshing beautiful sweet citrus but not too much... Woody refreshing well blended heart and absolutely beautiful sweet vetiver pear sandalwood base that is so airy, lingers around you for a long time. Don't know which I like more... the opening or the heart or long time lingering beautiful dry down. This with Sauvage will be a top seller!!

I own the 2008 DHS after which this 2017 version is clearly modeled. The differences will reveal under a side by side comparison. The 2008 DHS has a touch of light spiciness from the ginger note and white pepper while the 2017 DHS dries down to that dont-know-what-it-is, generic base found in Sauvage.

I sampled yesterday. It smells good (very citrusy at the top and also similar to 2012 version), but in contrary of most of people, on my skin, it is not strong at all, it's very weak (I can't tell about dry down). I have to test again. I hope a better performance, i will see.

Spring and summer day fragrance, pretty similar to the old DHS. It is definitely a quality juice, but in my opinion, it is a bit too citrusy.

It is pretty new and i have to test it more, but it is worth giving it a try!

I like this new Dior Homme Sport a lot! It seems like it aleady arrived in Denmark, and i was able to get a sample. It has an obvious similarity to DHS 2012, but it's more refined and alluring. DHS 2012 was too fizzy for my taste, but this one has clearly got that solved out. They managed to give all that abundance of citrus a slight creamy side, while still keeping intact the backbone of the fragrance, even with the removal of iris.
To me, DHS 2017 is an obvious improvement, therefore I don't find it necessary to cling on to, or hunt for 2012 in order to make a stock. I take it as a natural evolution.

Overall, a potentially great summer fragrance, that I cannot wait to own.

Smooth citrus throughout the life of this fragrance. I never picked up a bottle of Dior homme sport even though I'm a huge fan of Dior fragrances due to the fact that I'm not a fan of ginger and iris combined together. I enjoy them sepertaly in other fragrances but not together. With this new release which I bought 4 days ago and have been testing it out continuously and these are some of my thoughts on it.

1) I think this scent is overwhelmingly better than Dior Sauvage.

2) Very smooth citrus with light spices and woods. Nothing groundbreaking Familiar yet a touch alluring.

3) Compliment factor : 8/10- I've been complimented many times already. Innoffensive, Clean yet inviting.

4) Perfromance : Very Good - Dior Freshies lately have the power to push out from your skin. 6-8 Hours on a 82 Degree day in Los Angeles

5) Sillage : Very Good - Leaves a very nice scent trail. Even I could grab wiffs of it walking down the street even though I applied 2 Hours before.

5) Season : Spring/Summer - But could be worn year round.

Rating : 8.5/10

Heady, robust, and high-maintenance.

The new Dior Homme Sport is sure to adds some diversity to your sport collection. This is something mostly new to me as far as sport fragrances as concerned. Dior Sport 2017 crafts a new deep, heavy, and robust type of freshness between the citrus, woods, and spice.

As described, the Dior Homme Sport 2017 is a considerably high-maintenance fragrance though from what I discern. A light application will present you with this mild-toned designer tinge, that isn't especially stimulating or pleasant in any way.

I would guess this is due to the heaviness of the vetiver and sandalwood overtaking the chemical proportions of the citrus—then topped off by the heaviness of the spice over the citrus as well.

So a heavy application is definitely needed for this one. From this, the fragrance opens up significantly, as you soak up a much more sufficient volume of the citrus.

Another high-maintenance note to add is that Dior Sport 2017 seems to do a lot better outdoors, where the open air gives the fragrance more room to bloom.

Among the open air, the fragrance opens up even more, and projects with a little more complexity to it. The blood orange becomes a lot more dominant, and robust, and projection of it is very pleasant.

In closed spaces, the fragrance kind of closes itself up, and the greater complexity of the fragrance can be hard to perceive due to some kind of partial asnomia.

Dior Sport 2017 definitely strives to be a true sport fragrance, so if you don't mind the high-maintenance factor, I'd say it's definitely an amazing fragrance to have. The scent is very unique, and dynamic, and the stimulation it carries is very inspiring to me.

I've tried this one today and got a few samples. Quality is top notch as usual, nothing new there. The scent is close to the last 2012 release, take away some of the powdery feel and more citrus, like a mix between the 2012 and the cologne, but not so fresh and zesty like the cologne.

My biggest complain in the Dior Homme Sport 2012 and Cologne, is the performance for the price, this one I'm glad is better then both mentioned, not that much better (seriously people? Who's voting for 12h+ longevity and heavy sillage? really? Be realistic and try the fragrance first ok?) but a more acceptable performance, spraying skin and clothes for the extra longevity I get about 8 hours, only about 5 on skin, about 1 hour longer then the 2012 and 2 hours longer then the cologne.

I really like this release, it's a bit more fresh, keeps the same amazing grapefruit note and a bit better performance while still being similar to the 2012 version. Love it

Dior officially reformed DHS , pulled out of the market the 2012 version , and only the new one could be found in official retailers in US , most countries in Europe , and soon all over the world.The new version shares the same DNA with 2012 formulation and it's similar .... like 60-70% , but it's NOT the same fragrance.They removed the iris and the ginger notes , and now the main player on the field is the blood orange , with the help of sandalwood and nutmeg.I get vetiver too , only in the drydown.
The 2017 formulation is much closer to the vintage one with added blood orange ,then to 2012 formulaton.
People should NOT blind buy the new one , if they are used to the 2012 version!!!
Some will love it,but others won't.
For like 90% of the Dior Homme Sport owners DHS=a lot of Iris,good amount of ginger and lemon .... and there's NO iris anymore in the new sport version...at all,there's no ginger and blood orange is much more pronounced than the lemon.
If you remember the vintage DHS and you think it was better than the 2012 version there is a higher chance you'll like the new one too , but if you think DHS=iris+ginger+lemon you may not like the 2017 version,or you may find inferior to the previous one.
Longevity ~7-8 hours
Sillage ~4-4.5 hours

This is 80% similar to the 2012 formulation, however it's more masculine with a sharper sportier edge.

Performance is surprisingly good, 6-8 hours longevity and I think it will become a big hit this year!

This is a very nice and well blended fragrance although it's unfortunately generic as hell.

François Demachy is the nose behind Acqua di Parma Intensa and Dior Homme Sport 2017 is nothing else but a totally rip-off, an absolute copycat of that fragrance.

Starts off with a cologne-ish beautiful citrus mix. It lasts few (4-5) hours or so and starts drying down to a woody-resinous background.

A total longevity of this is about 8 hours and sillage is quite poor.

Very good fragrance but I'm pretty dissapointed.

I really miss the powdery iris here, which is for me the most important note in any of the Homme series.
Definitely warmer, less sparkling and less citrusy than the 2012 version. Therefore a perfect scent for all-season office wear.

Received my 75 ML bottle today, heavily discounted at 41 bucks.

Citrus slightly sweet aromatic fragrance with an earthy undertone (vetiver?). Suppose it's slightly spicy too but wouldn't describe it as such. I can see this scent getting compliments, its very bright and uplifting.

Nothing wow but it's smooth and good imo. Better than dior sauvage for me, even though its not the same genre... both are fresher smells.

Longevity seems moderate... I'd say good for a citrus scent. But it seems to sit close to the skin, projects maybe at the beginning for an hour or two.

I like it alot more than the 2012 version, which was headache inducing and piercing. The ginger + iris.. burning and piercing my nostrils. No such thing with this scent, nice aromatic slightly sweet citrus. The lack of iris in here to me is beneficial. Mind you im not a fan of iris or ginger. I don't really see why you'd want iris in a "sport" fragrance either.

The sleeker and elongated bottle designs are a minor plus, easier to grip and hold compared to the fatter previous bottles from the dior homme/dior homme sport line.

At the price I got it for this is a bargain and a winner.

This looks remarkeably similar tto dior homme cologne 2013 now that it has no more iris. They should have called that one sport instead, this was never really meant to be a sport, since putting iris in a sport version was so different. IMO thry should have left the iris in it, its the Dior Homme DNA! Oh well cant knock it till i try it, lets see how it smells

What pisses me about Dior is that they completely change the frag. Not how reformulations work, cuz they are restricted by using some ingredients, or they water down. No, Dior, completely changes the composition to the point that it has no similarity to the previous. Why the hell don't they label this 2017 so ppl can see. And keep 2012 for those who love it. Obviously they are getting a new frag to the marked. Why name it the same and confuse ppl completely. Someone who got 2012 won't know about 2017 and will think... wtf is this? It's not even remotely the same smell. Did I get a fake or what? Not everyone reads comments about frag reformulations and changes.

Now, I didn't like 2012 that much but there are a huuuge fan base that does. And why screw that for them? Why not leave 2-3 versions of the same frag? Okay, limit it's production but keep it going. I never liked Dior. I got Sauvage and I am planing on getting Cologne and maybe this one. But if they keep changing frags like this, even Sauvage... then fuck them. Thank god Sauvage is so synthetic, and easy to copy so others have very similar alternatives.

WTF is this? Where is the ginger and the cedar that makes DH Sport what it is? I better stock up on the 2012 version, which is the one I've liked the most. The 2008 was far too citrusy, and I don't expect this to smell anything like DH.

Tried the 2017 version several times and as a verdict it smells closer to 2008's than to 2012's. No iris here. However, all the bright and potent "lemony" parts of 2008 have been muted, and now the scent from the beginning smells as 2008 in the dry down. The new version stays close to skin. Not sweet, though, being less citrusy, it has become woodier, more synthetic.

I simply love grapefruit and lemon with pink pepper. It has such an invigorating and lasting vibe. love the light vetiver dry down when it's not pronounced but there. And it will be interesting to see the orange with sweet nutmeg. I usually don't like any orange in fragrance because they are mostly not well done. But since this is Dior, I am expecting a top notch quality of the blood orange note. This will be very interesting and could become to be the most famous fresh frag from Dior. Maybe even better than Sauvage. I hink there is enough Irirs in rest of their frags so this one doesn't have to be and given the success of non iris Sauvage... I can see where this is coming from and where they want it to go. A more natural fruity and refined Sauvage.

I have the 2012 and still have some of my 2008 and enjoy both of them still, and side by side there are subtle differences the introduction of Iris in 2012. Its interesting that they have dropped the 100ml size and gone with 125ml in the new 2017 version maybe a sign that it will be weaker in performance who knows. I will still look forward to sampling this when it arrives.

A Dior Homme Sport without ginger and cedar? Hum. I really hope this is the last version of DHS and after that they go back to the 2008 version, I had a 50ml of this one and it is in my top 5 fragrances ever. I really don't know why they have to change something that already proved to be a winner. Still gonna try this one when it's released.

Can't talk about the smell yet.

Maybe will it also be available in the 200 ml bottles, since the bottles are the same sizes and shape as the Dior Cologne 2013 line?

I've got to go against the grain here and say that I like what Dior is doing with Homme Sport and the new iterations, keeps things fresh and each iteration has arguably been as good as the last. Many fans of each one, and I expect the same for the new 2017 version.

Dior Homme Sport 3? Dior getting into the movie business? Surely this must be a bad joke, but apparently Demachy has a love of unnecessary sequels. The current incarnation of this fragrance is decent, but the original formula was far superior - the combination of the bright citrus and the piquant ginger was a simple revelation.

Who knows what this new incarnation will bring? That said, Dior has lost the narrative on the Dior Homme line. Time to choose some new names for these "new" fragrances...
