Dior Homme colognes and candles



Which cologne or candle do you like?

I haven't got any yet because i still love the ones that i am using, Bvlgari and Davidoff. However, i plan to get one the next time i visit the Dior Homme store...probably in August...

bois d'argent for the candles.

Is it really fragrant? I was thinking of getting the 30 Montaigne...but anyway, i'll decide at the store...

Dior store Paris gave me a Bois d'Argent cologne last time I shopped, and it's OK (though I prefer the Dior Homme perfume).

See ya!

monsieur AG said...

Bois d'Argent seems to be the preferred cologne by many DH fans...hmmm...

What is the size of the cologne that the store gave u?

Philippe said...

The large one.

monsieur AG said...

Wow...are u talking about the 500ml bottle or 250ml?

Philippe said...

Oups, yep 250ml (wasn't aware of the 500ml).

I had this good "connection" with the Dior sales girl and asked her for a discount. She replied she was gonna check with her boss and made evrything she could. She came back with the Cologne, but no discount : at least I tried!

Philippe ;-)

250ml is better than nothing man...i don't even get any gift at all...the 500ml size is the biggest bottle which only has the bottle cap but not the spray...

if i am not wrong, DH does not have any VIP discount or anything at all...

Philippe said...

Wrong Monsieur (like your French pseudo ;-)

Actually good clients who know Dior sales assistants can reserve items in their size before the sales actually start (-30% in France): it's a kind of disguised VIP discount if you ask me.

I'm not living in Paris, but I benefit of these VIP sales (a few days before the real sales start) in the Dior corner in my provincial city : not a huge choice but quite decent though. Better than nothing I suppose...

monsieur AG said...

haha...i actually like the title monsier...its equivalent to Mr. in english...hehe

yeah...i knew about this special treatment too...the sales assistants at US stores are doing this too....its good that u receive such treatment...too bad, i don't even have a DH store near me

where do u live in France? Lille? What kind of shop that sells DH in your city?

Philippe said...

Not in Lille, quite the opposite actually! :-) I live in Toulouse (sunny southwestern France) and there's this one 'multibrand' shop downtown that has a designer storey (with Dior Homme, Lanvin, Margiela, Anne Demeulemeester...).

They sell accessories too (Dior shoes, bags, underwear and jewelry) and the sales guy is very friendly and advised me of these 'VIP' sales a few days before the official sales date. Summer sales should begin in roughly a month in France, and I'll have to visit and VIP shop them before sales start and everything flies off the shelf.

monsieur AG said...

Although i don't know where is Toulouse, i assume its a nice place too since everything in France seems so nice...hehe

Its beneficial to have a good relationship with the sales person in a shop...you can get freebies or VIP treatment from them...I hope you are able to get what you want during the sales... :)
