I think I'll get some samples of Parfums Vintage. I like the Eden VIW so will go for Isla Tropical Drive. Is Pineapple Vintage decent?

I've got the original Dior Homme. Looking at the others as starting to wear it again. What is the difference to DHI and DHP?

It’s worth searching it on the groups Hanto as I think there’s been a reformulation with the iris being taken out of one of them and one staying the same if I’m thinking about the same thing?

Yeah good point; the bottle of DH I have is about 10 years old. No idea of perfume goes off but still smells the same!

For me the homme parfum is longer lasting and the die down is much better - that’s just me though.
I still get the original bottles - Dior recently changed their packaging and probably the formulation as it was meant to be discontinued.
I only wear that for last 5 years I reckon - found my scent so have stuck to it.
Got about 10 other bottles just collecting dust.

Dior Homme Parfum is DHI with added leather and oud, which takes the performance from good to beast mode. Iris is still prominent in both. I personally prefer DHI, but DHP smells more expensive.

It’s nice, not a listed note but I’m getting heavy liquorice too…

Defo not getting that and it’s a good job as I fuckin hate the smell of it in frags.
Just a couple of other coconut suggestions which are:
Zoologist Elephant which is a really crisp green opening with a fresh, little bit earthy coconut dry down. I love wesring this. Not a power house but very fresh without being citrus.
Olfactive Studio Still Life in Rio is the other which is a smooth citrus opening with a rum and coconut dry down. In fact I might pull the trigger on this soon as I’ve been meaning to for ages. Would make a nice change to malibu and viw.

Tried Still Life and Still Life in Rio recently (samples) and Rio has a little spicy vibe to it that I really like. LFC keeps the hits coming.

Are these samples you consider sending out?
Would be interested in some
