I still have a few drops left of the original Dior Homme (not Dior Homme Original, but the actual first version). But soon it's gone. I see that you can still find it online but very expensive. So what are the views here on all the followers and flankers? Should one go for Homme Original, or Intense, or EDP?

The flankers are all unique in their own way. But you can go for Dior Homme Parfum (if you want some leather in your DH)

I ordered the new Areej le Dore fragrance. It sounds like it is lighter and less baroque than some of his other stuff (which I have not tried). Really looking forward to trying it. I like that he sells 10ml bottles since the fragrances are hard to sample and sell out quickly.

It depends on what you like about Dior Homme. I have all three: Original (before it was named Original), Intense, and Parfum. They are lightest to darkest in that order. The Parfum is not as easy to wear year round as the other two--the woods and leather and rose make it much heavier than Original--but it's really great and pretty on par with a lot of far more expensive fragrances.

Today is vintage YSL Kouros.

DIor Farenheit.
I need to re-visit that.
I haven't smelled it since it first came out, and I hated it at the time.
Maybe my nose graduating from charm school and being middle aged will make a difference...

I find that it has aged very well. It manages to smell both classic and modern.

Bought a mini travel atomizer to decant some of my vintage splash bottled Hermes Equipage, booya, very nice, different progression of the scent.

Guerlain is bringing/has brought a flanker of Heritage, with weed smells in it. Ew.
Anyone tried it?

i am not sure it will be of interest to the thread but it seemed weird enough to warrant me giving a heads up...costco has le labo rose 31 and another 13 for sale. the savings are not...huge ( i think another 13 is like 30 bucks off) but figured id share just in case someone was interested

I cannot wait to try Rose 31 and Oud 27 tbh.
I find Rose 31 to be pretty overrated, and like a lot of Le Labos, it just smells like ambroxan in the dry down. Oud 27 doesn't smell like oud, which isn't really all that surprising. It's fine. It is being discontinued, though, so if you want to try it and possibly get it, you should do so sooner rather than later.
