10/10 rightly and on principle
Wanted to write the review for a long time, but didn't in the end.

Given the current hype around LNDH Bleu Electrique but it must be.

There are so many weird takes around DH 2020.The opening smells like toilet stone, the scent smells like citrus floor cleaner, comparisons to Bleu de Chanel.

And of course noses and olfactory perceptions are different but for my nose the best thing about DH 2020 is the clear distinction from old familiar Blue Fragrances and Aquatics.

Also, I don't perceive it sharp, overly citric, clinical or anything like that. In the opening resins and woods are completely obvious, after ner half hour until the end, the thing is neatly musky.

The opening is divine, amazingly natural/unchemical for me by designer standards, the bergamot note is a dream. If the DH 2020 is supposed to smell synthetic I have no idea how to describe the mainstream designer blue openings of the lethten decade, Sauvage included.

Performance is difficult for me to judge by my fast Noseblindness bzgl. iso-E-Super for me, however, it is quite a fragrance with which I go as 2-3 spray people quite times on 7-8.

And the whole thing here comes not from someone who so far Beckham For Man and Guido Maria Kretschmer's fragrances. I find Dior Homme 2020 completely satisfying even alongside scents like Coromandel, Tonka Imperiale, Musk Therapy and Ambre Nuit and far from guilty pleasure.

If anything, I would go further and say that the fragrance is enough for the Maison Christian Dior range and would probably be somewhere well above 8.0 if it had a different name and cost just under four times as much.

Dior Homme 2020 is by the deviation of Dior Homme Original for many simply not neutrally assessable and the rest are many perfumos who join the hate-circlejerk. If you dig through the statements and look for perfumos who can classify the fragrance halfway capable, then a considerably more positive picture emerges than possibly suspected. The same goes for Fragrantica. Bleu Electrique, on the other hand, is the same thing, only the other way around. An old, nostalgic water basically unchanged (except for wording owed to the market and right) but with stronger performance thrown on the market and the community dances in the streets.

A similar fate is mMn befalling H24 right now, albeit for a slightly different reason. I suspect H24 and DH 2020 as the first outgrowths of a move towards green notes, away from Ambrox->Tonka and the like. The new Burberry, JPG, CK and Abercrombie Pillar seem to confirm that.

In conclusion, I'm curious how DH 2020, H24 and consorts will be received in five years, I suspect a good bit better than this year

The spirit of the age wants it that way
First of all, an important info first: I celebrated my 30th birthday last summer.
Is therefore relevant, as the following comment probably gives the impression that I am at least twice as old. Or triple. I just wanted to get rid of it again quickly.

And now straight to the outing: Yes, I'm one of those crybabies who feel pissed off by Dior, now that the French are completely gutting one of their modern milestones in men's perfumery and launching it on the market as a virtually completely new fragrance. The fact that the original version still exists, at least for the time being, as the "Dior Homme Original" and that the Intense and Perfume versions of the fragrance seem to remain untouched suggests that the decision may have been controversial even within the company. I think that the latter two versions (EdP and Parfum) will also be redesigned sooner or later - a line in which eau de toilette and eau de parfum do not match at all will be difficult to market in the long run. Seems to be a complete mess in some perfumeries in view of Dior's business policy already now.

The original "Dior Homme" is a perfume grand deed that I still love very much: noble, opulent, a little dandyish, and through the legendary powdery "lipstick accord" worn by Iris always a statement, maybe even a little provocation: against rigid definitions of what masculinity has to look (and smell), against mediocrity. Here no bashful game of hide-and-seek was played with shower gel, deodorant or shaving foam associations - here a man clearly professed to be "perfumed". To this day I find the concept incredibly cool and progressive.

If the new "Homme" had been released under a completely new name, I wouldn't have lost many words about the fragrance. But even so, the summary of my fragrance impression is quite brief: citric-peppery upbeat, a few sparingly masculine-woody notes in the heart, surrounded by some Iso E Super and Veitver, quite good durability, very quickly flattening Sillage.

Not badly done, not for running away, but much worse: trivial. Inconspicuous. Just not worth mentioning.

It has always annoyed me a little how such a boredom is then talked up as "ever-walker", "crowdpleaser" or "versatile" (worse expression). (Or especially bad: "office scent" - as if one always had to be slippery as an eel in the office and also underline the streamlined devotee olfactorically)
This should not be against this kind of fragrances, which have their right to exist. But: if I want to have such a perfume, I choose something in the drugstore or put a twenty for a Jil Sander or Joop on the table. For the price that a premium manufacturer like Dior calls up - 100ml of "Dior Homme" can be bought on the Dior website for 96 Euros - I find the bid simply outrageous. No more crowdpleaser or perpetrator. (Monsieur Demachy hits the mark involuntarily when he whitewashes this bland banality as "open, absolute simplicity")

But what am I talking about - to most people it seems to be either not important or even convenient anyway. Every perfume is also a child of its time. The fact that Dior creations such as "Fahrenheit" or the original "Dior Homme" became box office hits despite all their extravagance is also due to the spirit of the times. "Dior Homme 2020" fits very well into a time in which everyone wants/must "perform" their life, but yes, please within the given framework. Don't get out of line too much. If you walk through the shopping miles of the big cities, you will see super-individual people who look like each other like eggs. Branded clothes are important, but please do not wear unconventional or unusual clothes. Inconspicuous sweatshirts, basic T-shirts, pants in a jogging look, all silky-sitting and cut without a whistle, but as long as one of the brand logos from Calvin Klein to Gucci is on it.

So no more metro fumbling and all that newfangled existentialism! The 2020 remake of "Dior Homme" skilfully captures the current zeitgeist, which is once again with more conventional political and social connotations, and will therefore sell very well. Smells okay, doesn't attract attention, is from Dior - Safe, Bro.
Now you can find this stupid (like me), but it has to be noted like this.

As a music lover, I remember a documentary about Hi-NRG that I recently saw on TV - that synth-driven dance sound that rose from the ruins of the irrelevant disco music in the 80s and disappeared again at the end of the decade of the same name: suddenly all acid and house and the old epigones no longer understood the new language of clubs and discos.
Peter Watermann (from Stock Aitken Watermann), who contributed to the commercial sell-out of the Hi-NRG with his assembly line productions, was a bit perplexed in an interview about the new sound at that time: "They only have one beat - no more songs, no more good melodies! But they meet in tens of thousands in a meadow and have a lot of fun. They do it right - and I'm wrong."

And I'm probably wrong too. The spirit of the age wants it that way.

There's an end of it!
No, it's not bad A bit of 'Terre d'Hermès' (Pink Pepper/Iso-E Super/Cedar/Vetiver), some fougère borrowings from 'Bleu de Chanel', some 'Eau Sauvage Parfum' (Bergamot and Elemi), a hint of fluffy musk, and the supposed new mega-seller is ready.
Creativity is different, also in terms of naming and flacon design, but so what - without cash cow the best perfume house doesn't stay alive.
The original 'Dior Homme' was then already carved from a different wood: a bold, innovative fragrance in a simple bottle that matched the Homme couture of the time by Hedi Slimane. Everywhere the fragrance was praised and Luca Turin even awarded it 5-star consecrations, but the sales figures were only moderately successful.

Many years earlier Chanel had met a similar fate: the initially celebrated 'egoists' became such a financial flop that from now on one played it safe and met the inclined consumers only with something halfway familiar.
A corresponding motto is now also followed by Dior.
The idiosyncratic and courageous 'Dior Homme' was followed by the thoroughly calculated, ranschmeißerische 'Sauvage', and now the no less calculated, streamlined, and thus worldwide mass marketable new 'Dior Homme'.
But why on earth does this fragrance, so completely trimmed down to mediocrity, bear the name of its anything but average predecessor? Does Dior want to wipe out a supposed embrasure? Are we even ashamed of the former extravagance?

Even the name 'Sauvage' was a rather infamous camouflage, as the fragrance had nothing to do with the in-house Roudnitska classic of the same name. After all, 'Eau Sauvage' had already been around for a few decades, while the original 'Dior Homme' only counts a few Lenze. But the house of Dior seems to tend to the fast pace of life anyway: the speed at which new fragrances are launched, and others are discontinued at the same time, is becoming increasingly dizzying. With the increasing breathlessness, however, the level of the fragrances is unfortunately also becoming increasingly bottomless: so the only exclusive thing about the so-called 'Privée' series is basically only the price. While the fragrances were initially sophisticated and unusual, they are now only trivial.
The whole house of Dior is, at least as far as its own fragrances are concerned, currently in pretty much a decline. The new 'Dior Homme' is a good example: everything about this fragrance is 'safe', everything. It's as safe as a Nivea shower gel
But, as I said, to keep a traditional house like Dior alive, you probably need such mass-produced fragrances - let others burn their fingers for a change! This also opens up space for creativity and innovation again. Chanel, Hermès, Guerlain, Cartier, Armani and others are showing off: Mass market here, an exclusive niche there.
But what I really wish for, dear people of Dior: keep your hands off the old fragrances! Create the most banal of all banal fragrances, but find new names and bottles for them. And don't link them to the great deeds of the past, which you are only discrediting with them.

Stop it, please!

It is what it is.
Bought the fragrance because it was relatively cheap and I knew I would use it when I do not know what fragrance to wear otherwise.

I don't know if I'm just clueless more often than not or not, but DH2020 is one of the scents I fall back on the most. When I had a sample earlier this year, my first impression was, "OK, Dior has a BdC competitor now. I actually find this one more likeable than Bleu."

I thought the fragrance was good and rated it 7.5 at the time, precisely because it wasn't a revelation for me.
9 months later, I have a 100 ml bottle, which often comes into use, because I have discovered a new side to me.

I also want to wear times a fragrance that just "only" smells good, is not particularly creative but I'm still happy when I get over the day times here and there a breath under the nose. A fragrance, which maybe not so noticeable, so that people talk to you about it, but if they do, it is guaranteed not negative.
This scent gives me confidence, but not the kind of confidence I have when I wear polarizing scents, but rather "I smell good, and I know everyone around me is of the same opinion" kind of confidence :D

It's fresh, tangy, woody and masculine. Just the modern man. It's just fun to smell.

The durability is not so bad. On my collar I smell him 1-2 days, on the skin up to 7 hours perceptible. For work and / or leisure activity's enough perfectly.
Does the fragrance necessarily appear under "Homme"? Yes, because Dior redefines the "man" with it. The original was a statement, and so is the 2020 version. Whether we like it is another question.

Is it marketing wise? No, or maybe it is. I don't know. I honestly don't care either. I know the difference, I know there are two versions, and the new version has worked for me and is getting an update in scoring.

Where are all the carrots gone?!
It is done. Now even the last carrot has lost track of the different Dior versions. DH/DH 2020, DHI 2007/2011, DHP, DHS 2008/2012/2017, DHC 2007/2013.
I was never a big fan of the original Dior Homme. No idea why. I guess I just think carrots are for eating. And only prepared with great refinement. I've never felt the need to smell carrot. I wouldn't know who or what to smell of carrots at all, except a fat Lepus with halitosis
The 2020 version is already starting out woody-fresh. In the course of time the fragrance becomes a bit more woody and gets a slight tart and spicy twist, which I like. If necessary, vetiver down to the base also plays a subordinate role here. The fragrance remains largely restrained, linear and musk lets the whole thing fade away moderately soapy. The result is a consistently pleasant office fragrance that accompanies me very closely throughout the day.

Yes, that is anything but spectacular, but I don't have the nerve to distract myself and my surroundings with spectacular scents in everyday life. I'm not a magician or a clown. I work in an office. I would like to get through the day well scented without getting a headache. Unfortunately, some fragrances do this all too quickly. And yes, because of his restraint he will not be impressed on the memory of your fellow men. And no creature on this globe will tear off its hatchlings because you wear perfume (even if it contains carrot). Although... no, I don't think so. Well, I'm undecided on that point. Since Bauer is looking for a wife etc. I think a lot of things are possible.

Banal, boring, uncreative, unloving, unnecessary, unworthy, characterless, meaningless, etc....The whole perfume glossary is pelting down on the fashion house here, but the bottom line is that love for former bestsellers doesn't help companies. If the numbers are not correct, you must react. In this respect, fewer people will probably mourn the old version than expected. Changes that are carried out so transparently for the client even deserve my respect. Am I going to buy the scent after? Probably not, since the next version will surely already be on the market. Will that make me grieve? I don't think so. I still like Dior Homme 2020.
