Christian Dior, Miss Dior Chérie (Now Just Miss Dior) - J'adore Dior!

I lusted after this perfume for about 6 months last year, desperately trying to wait until Christmas to ask for it from Mr Beauty Scoop. Alas, I caved in about 2 months before and bought it myself... and, not only did I buy it, I bought the biggest bottle in the Eau De Parfum no less (well, if you're going to do something, you might as well do it properly, don't you think?!).

I'm glad I did, as it has quickly become my favourite, and most used fragrance which is quite an achievement, considering how much perfume I own... so  choosing the biggest bottle in the EDP variety was probably one of my better splurges.

The bottle is beautiful, elegant and very deserving of a front row place on my dressing table. However, the bottle isn't why I bought it, so let's get on to the fragrance itself. Put simply, it is stunnng, sweet but fresh and with just a hint of musk to stop it being sickly, whilst also giving the fragrance a bit of warmth too. It's a scent that I believe is suitable for pretty much all ages, and one that I can see being as popular as ever in years to come.

On the skin it lasts for AGES, which I'm very impressed with - but not surprised as EDP's are known to last longer than EDT fragrances. I also knew it lasted well because I used to sneak a squirt whenever I went into Boots whilst I was in my lusting phase! ;-)

I've done a bit of a Google search to try to find out the notes of the fragrance to let you know, but there's some confusion over this as it appears they've been tweaked in recent times, so although I'm showing the notes below, they may not be 100% correct as the site didn't say which version they were from.

Top Notes: Green Tangerine, Strawberry Leaves.
Heart Notes: Violette, Pink Jasmine, Carmelized Popcorn, Strawberry Sorbet.
Base Notes: Fresh Patchouli and Crystalline Musk

The changes are that Miss Dior Chérie will be known simply as Miss Dior from now on (although some of the Miss Dior Chérie will still be on shelves until they sell) and will be the same, pink coloured perfume, whilst the original Miss Dior (yellow-ish coloured perfume) will become Miss Dior Original. It's a little confusing, and ultimately doesn't change a lot but I thought you guys should know, for the purpose of this review and future knowledge.

Whatever the notes or the name, it is beautiful and I recommend it 100%.

  1. Oh I liked the name Miss Dior Chérie... if it aint broke, don't fix it! I don't know why Dior feel the need to mess with this perfume twice is a year or so, first changing the notes and then the name.

  2. It's one of the few sweet fragrances that I love; I prefer deeper, muskier scents but after my mum bought this in Dubai a few years ago, I fell in love!
