Smells like Chanel. The one in the red-marroon looking box. Can't remember what it's called. It's popular in Europe. I got it when I was in Spain. This smells absolutely nothing like J'adore EDT or EDP. It's very old world, but at the same time, it's not.
Some times it smells so good, but other times, it kind of reminds me of lysol. Well, anyway, I think that overall this is a great scent. I like florals and musks and fresh and green scents, and citrus. This seems to be a mix of all three, I think. But in such a unique way, and again, very much like that Chanel. In fact, I wonder if this is supposed to be knock off.
This is described by Dior as a floriental. It's not exactly what I would call a challenging fragrance; it's actually pretty "safe" and well, pretty. Scratch that. It's beautiful. More floral than spice with a bit of creaminess. Soft without being dowdy. Sophisticated without being strictly special event. Can be worn as a beautiful every day perfume. This is probably one of my favorite J'Adore flankers.
Absolutely love at first sniff! What a stunningl feminine fragrance, beautiful elegant bottle, fantastic sillage! Coco Madamoiselle was my favourite fragrance of all time but ever since I discovered L'Or, I would say they are both definitely on a par. My biggest dilemma is figuring out which one to wear.
Smooth and silky feel fragrance... How should I say it, "exquisite!" Great choice for evening social gathering for its classy scent. Not overwhelming. Pure heaven. Love.Love.Love.
This is so smooth and classy. I love it...and only just discovered it when I went to a Dior cournter at Nordie to revisit the regular J'adore and remind myself why I did not have a bottle. I don't like the sharpness of the original, but the L'or is warm, soft and elegant...I bought it on the spot. Although there was only one size, I would repurchase.
I work for Dior and I love this perfume. It is so sophisticated and classy. Most of my American customers either love it or hate it, but my European customers love it. Some people have said that it smells like a sour Chanel #5. I don't get it. Maybe people these days can only handle D&G Light Blue.
I love fragrance and it's a part of my everyday existence. J'Adore L'Or is a masterpiece in my collection of fine fragrances and I love and appreciate it even more than when I first discovered it. Many fragrances have one particular note that is more predominate but the notes in L'Or are in complete harmony with one another. I feel classy and lady like whenever I wear this and the compliments are nonstop.
J'Adore L'Or Fragrance notes:
Mai Rose, Jasmine, Tonka bean, Vanilla, Patchouli, Labdanum
I was shopping @ Nordstrom when I saw a beautiful bottle in the fragrance section --a nearly completely different scent from the original . This deserves to stand alone in terms of quality ,elegance and artistry . The top notes surprise you with a burst of aldehydes - akin to hundreds of champagne bubbles bursting under your nose Beautifully made with the best jasmine and rose de mai from Grasse--from Dior's own fields . The base consists of soft and warm tonka bean absolute and sensual Tahitian vanilla absolute.An oriental flavor originates from patchouli and drops of amber and labdanum.
The packaging is exclusive with an inner and outer box, a small card stating that the rose and jasmine comes from Grasse and that the perfume was hand packaged .This all takes me by surprise as Dior is making an effort to put some exclusivity back into their 'mass' perfumes.
Tenacity is excellent - 2 sprays will last the next morning and then some . The depth of the fragrance is outstanding - oily with natural essences ,soft and rich.
