Great modern fragrance.If you want the iris note that used to be prominent in Dior Homme you have to to get Dior Homme Original, DHI or DHP. This 2020 version is a step in a different direction and some don't like it but I think that it is a great, versatile compliment getter.

Versatile, fresh, woody and totally worth it!Dior Homme (2020) has had quite a bashing since it was released, solely due to the marketing department at Dior having made a big mistake: using the exact same name of an existing popular fragrance, based around the iris note, originally released (by Dior) in 2005. The name confusion is no excuse really, as the 2020 version is a very good scent on its own and should not be confused with its predecessor, now known simply as 'Dior Homme Original'.
Dior Homme 2020 is a fresh and invigorating, masculine, woody scent that is a no-nonsense, versatile fragrance. Although it opens with bergamot and pink pepper, it takes many twists and turns before it dries right down, which bring to memory many other modern fragrances. Dior Homme 2020 contains a number of long-lasting synthetics such as ISO E Super (the cedar, 'pencil-shavings' note), a touch of ambroxan (ambergris, amber) and cashmeran (cashmere woods). The nearest related scents to my nose are Escentric 01 and Escentric 02 by Escentric Molecules. It contains very little if any sweetness or powdery notes (a big plus for me). Some have drawn parallels with Terre d'Hermes in the opening and even Aventus in the far dry down. The entire scent comes across as something quite familiar, yet it becomes something hard to pinpoint.
Prospective buyers should not be put off by any of the notes/ingredients mentioned above or the scent's misleading name. The whole fragrance is totally inoffensive, office-friendly, can be worn dressed up or down and remains a crowd pleaser that never becomes overwhelming or cloying at any point.
This is quite the contrary to Dior's other recent chemical waste release, known otherwise as Sauvage, which was too overpowering when sniffed up close (yet surprisingly pleasant when smelled on others from a distance). Dior Homme 2020 feels entirely natural and airy. It blends well with skin chemistry and it lasts remarkably well on both skin and clothes. It was its 'pull factor' that had me smelling my arm after applying it.
All in all, a very appealing aroma that screams masculinity, class and sophistication. Just don't judge it by its label!
