The appropriately named Dior Homme Intense was released in 2011 and is the perfect blend of sophisticated woody scents, masculine musk aromas and fragrant floral sweetness. Created by Francois Demachy, the fragrance for men starts with base notes of cedar and vetiver that perfectly mingle with the middle notes of iris, musk mallow and pear. Lavender top notes keep the fragrance fresh without making it become overwhelming. Spritz this cologne on in the morning to complement your work attire, and then wear this long-lasting fragrance well into the night.
