[unpaid/sample] I’m in my comfort zone with Dior fragrances, although can recognise they’ve got heavier on popular notes – I can definitely detect vanilla in this newest offering, designed to be the more sensual version of the J’Adore family.
I like New Look 1947 and Grand Bal from La Collection Privee as Dior absolute preferences and am partial to a spritz of Miss Dior but I loved the J’Adore hair mist of a few years ago (I don’t know if it still exists but what a treat!). This fragrance is predominantly rose and jasmine first in the sweet-floral thread typical of the brand’s signature but also includes bergamot, orange, pink pepper, lily of the valley, ylang-ylang, tuberose and sandalwood – I can see what they mean about it being a more sensual version as there is a heady, night time depth to it.
It’s definitely a pleaser – the sort of non-taxing, creamy fragrance that you can just sit back and enjoy without having to explore any complexities at all and right now, anything that doesn’t fuddle my brain is good! It’s like breathing in the scent of a gorgeous bouquet with a satisfactory olfactory hit that says all is well. The longevity is good – it saw me through the day, going back for sniffs throughout which is always a good sign. It’s very well worth visiting Dior HERE to read the nose notes which bring it to life far better than I can. Prices start at £110 (which surprised me).
