A bit fat YES to this one, despite the fact it opens up with a slap in the face from very powerful chypre demons!! The 1st time I smelled it out of the bottle cap - it smelled like old lady's panties. I could not fathom who in the world would ever want to wear that! Then, after a while, feeling too intrigued, I just decided to surrender the designer hype ( figuring, Dior could have NOT possibly deserved the good name producing bottled stale pee!! ) and bought pure perfume on Ebay, for a song, compared to the store prices. It was still a risky venture, but I thought - hey, I'll put it on when I want to play pretentious just for laughs, or when/if I hit 80! Sprayed on the skin, waited out ca. 10 minutes - and WOOOOOOOW, it just kept evolving and blossoming, light, freshly-cut-grass green, sunny and so fragile!! After "Gianni Versace" by Versace this is the 2nd perfume that changes so much, starting as hideous and peaking in perfection! If I ever get to the point in life, when I can afford this high-class stuff to penetrate my daily life , I will definitely make Miss Dior my spring/summer signature scent, COCO taking over in colder times. For now it's a fancy daytime summer occasions perfume for me - and I hope I will have a lot of them in the coming year just to have an excuse to wear Miss Dior!
I find this fragrance to be a very lovely milder scent. It is so feminine and quiet spoken. IMO I can wear this all day and never grow tired of the gentle whiffs of scent. I am not sure which note it is that carries in the breeze so lovely but it is there and it is noticeable all through out the day or evening. I love the way it smells on my skin under my nightie ;-). Sounds strange I know, but this is how I can tell a real quality perfume. If I can wear a scent to bed and wake in the morning with it still smelling divine, well that says it all to me. I can see this fragrance becoming an all time favorite and a must have in my collection for years to come. I just wish I had found it earlier.
This is one of the few fragrances I have bought in parfum strangth. It is a beautiful and sophisticated chypre, with floral edges. The parfum is more rounded and smoother than the EdT, and develops in an intriguing way over the hours. The bottle is gorgeous (a cute white ribbon round the neck). It's not a spray but it for dabbing. Parfums are expensive, but this should last you a long time. If you love the EdT then it really is worth pushing the boat out for the parfum.
This is truly lovely. If you enjoy wearing Miss Dior, the pure parfum is Miss Dior in stereo. The gardenia is much more in evidence here than with the EDT, as are the jasmine and classy amber. It also seems less aldehydic than the EDT. Warm, sophisticated, elegant and very long-lasting. It is also one fragrance I can never be without.
Just like the original Miss Dior EDT but intensified so the luscious top notes are emphasised far longer. Comes in a very chic bottle with an ivory bow around the neck. Simply gorgeous!
I actually prefer the EDT in this scent. EDT smelled sweeter and more wearable. Parfum was very strong and dry and chypre.
