The bottle is beautiful and the perfume is so expensive and long lasting with good sillage, but I just cannot appreciate it.
Many hours later the drydown is still tolerable but by then I would be suffering from a migraine. What I smell at first is magnolia, bergamot and peach. I have to be in the mood for it, which is usually never actually. It's very pretty, Sophisticated, Feminine Fragrance. He immediately said 'soap', and this is exactly how this smells like. Very clean scent and a crowd pleaser in some sense, but killed by reformulations kinda like La Nuit de l`Homme Yves Saint Laurent for men was devastated. I sprayed it before I went to bed at 11 pm, and could smell it the next morning at 8 am. this reminds me of trophy wives and women who have so much botox they can't move their face. EDP 2016 I sprayed this on my wrist, let alcohol evaporate and let my man smell it. I don't know about the sillage, but the longevity is pretty good, for me at least. If I think about it too hard that actually smells like laundry detergent, but I try not to go there. That said,i don't think it has that Dior signature smell,but i like it for what it is,a pleasant,sweet,flowery,clean perfume,something we all need sometimes. I had come to like the soap with a hint of melon, that was heavy and unrelenting. It smells like the fanciest French soap, absolutely gorgeous as long as you like Soapy smells.
