The 6 best Dior perfumes for men (and when to wear them)

In the collective imagination, Dior perfumes for men remain associated with essential personalities like Alain Delon, the timeless muse of Eau Sauvage. You may also remember the image of Zinédine Zidane pulling the turtleneck of her sweater to promote the same perfume. More recently, Robert Pattinson lent his features to Dior Homme Sport and Orelsan was also brought to represent a very elegant fragrance of the brand.

The best Dior perfumes for men and when and where to wear them

To meet the in-laws: Eau Sauvage

The atmosphere : This is the classic of classics of Dior men’s perfumes. Launched in the 1960s, Eau Sauvage left its mark on an entire generation. Its fresh and sensual trail is still up to date.

The context : During a home lunch with his in-laws.

What to wear it with? A perfectly ironed shirt, chinos and his most beautiful moccasins.

To surprise: Dior Gray

The atmosphere : We change mood with this floral eau de parfum with a radically different profile from fragrances traditionally labeled “masculine”. We can never tell you enough: men also wear rose.

The context : When you want to be bold.

What to wear it with: Your new favorite quirky piece.

Every day: Dior Homme Sport

The atmosphere : Dior’s fresh and elegant eau de toilette with spicy woody notes is one of the must-haves on the “men’s perfume” market. A sure value.

The context : Any of them.

What to wear it with? A white t-shirt, your favorite jeans and a pair of ankle boots.

During a holiday in the sun: Dioriviera

The atmosphere : This is our latest favorite from the Christian Dior private collection. The duo made up of rose and fig (its leaves more than the fruit) gives all its character to this summer perfume which calls for escape and evokes the sweetness, tranquility and sensuality of sunny days.

The context : You are staying in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat or Cap d’Antibes.

What to wear it with: A linen shirt, light pants and pretty sandals.

For a first date: Sauvage

The atmosphere : Having become a classic, Sauvage eau de parfum exudes something powerful and accessible at the same time. Confidence, but not arrogance.

The context : To make a good impression on a first date.

What to wear it with? One of your favorite shirts, straight pants and brand new sneakers.

For a chic evening: Bois d’Argent

The atmosphere : This is perhaps the most distinguished perfume in this selection. The dialogue between incense and powdery and floral notes gives Bois d’Argent a mysterious and sophisticated character.

The context : Do you have a black tie party planned soon?

What to wear it with: Your most elegant outfit.

Men’s ballet flats will soon be everywhere according to the latest Dior Men fashion show

At Dior Men, Kim Jones proved how much of a fashion jack of all trades he is. During his fall-winter 2024-2025 fashion show which was held early in the afternoon in the courtyard of the École Militaire, the British designer at the head of Dior Men unveiled a wardrobe with multiple faces, inspired in particular by ballet and dance in general. Kim Jones, a man with a voracious and eclectic culture, paid tribute to his uncle Colin Jones, a ballet dancer in the 1950s.

To music from Sergei Prokofiev’s ballet, Romeo and Juliet (1935), the Dior Men fashion show thus unveiled a contained collection, high couture – the models were literally raised above the public during the final tableau – and worked from the signature uniform of the dancer of ballet. From the leotard to the dancing shoe, Kim Jones diverts the wardrobe of the little opera rats, while focusing on the pieces which have, until now, been the heydays of Dior’s men’s wardrobe.

The ballerina, a new fashion essential?

The bags, for example, are visible throughout the collection: the small functional sizes in blue crocodile-effect leather, or even the textured white backpacks set with hand-drawn patterns. But, and this is more surprising from Kim Jones for Dior Men, the real UFOs of the show are the ballerinas present almost everywhere throughout the collection, worn most often with shorts and large pulled-up socks.

Available in almost all sizes, the Dior men’s ballerina by Kim Jones is available in leather, suede, and in beige or black. The more than obvious inspiration? The dance shoe. After the ballerinas signed The Row, Celine or Alaïa, the emblematic shoe of Y2K fashion, which was for a long time one of the neglected ones of fashion, is undoubtedly back in 2024. Regardless of the gender this time, style-savvy men will now walk flat like their female counterparts. Not sure, however, that the street is ready to adopt the masculine ballerina.
