I don’t talk about fragrances much. Reason? Preferences. This is such an individual thing that I can’t tell you how good something smells or tastes. It depends solely on your individual preference! Furthermore, how difficult is it to describe something so intangible? I can’t say it smells square, or it sprays gel… -.-” So here, I will only able to share with you how I feel about this fragrance and you just have to go test it out yourself to see if we have the same taste.
The Dior Addict I received looks just like any other Dior Addict fragrances. This one is a pretty pink tall bottle that is heavy and luxurious. I would be careful not to drop it though. It is made of glass after all. To unlock the spray, twist the knob from O to I. I do like the minimalistic look because if it’s all flowery, then it would be a bit too much. FYI, the nose behind this fragrance is Francois Demachy.
Have you seen the video advertisement for this perfume? It’s fun and sexy at the same time. It probably sums up the whole perfume, except the part where guys just follow you everywhere. In Malaysia, with the poor security nowadays, if a random guy starts following you, it’s very likely not because of how you smell. I’d suggest you run the other way and look for help. It would be better to look silly than to be kidnapped or robbed. Anyway…
The first spritz reminds me of an old favourite
which was discontinued…(edited: not discontinued at all, just renamed) the Dior Addict 2. I actually have a miniature Dior Addict 2 and when I compared them, I was surprised. Guess what? This IS Dior Addict 2, just renamed and relaunched this year as Dior Addict Eau Fraiche. Fellow blogger Paris also reviewed this, and she brought up a very good point. Something I overlooked. The tag / label at the bottom of this bottle still says Dior Addict 2.
This fragrance reminds me of flirty colourful floral chiffon dresses that are feminine yet playful. Girls let their hair down, or they can tie their hair up in a swishy high ponytail. Pink lips, flushed cheeks, this scent makes me feel young! Top notes are bergamot and grapefruit. In fact, my nose detected the citrusy zing and sweet mangoes! Pretty far off eh? Oh well, it’s my untrained nose that is prone to allergies we’re talking about… Middle notes are lotus, freesia and pomegranate and base notes are musk and woodsy notes which are not too mature at all. For me, the scent is light enough for an afternoon picnic at the park.
Perfumes react to our individual body chemicals and even though you and I wear the same perfume, we might smell different to others. Curiosity took over me, and I tested it on Chloe and Ashlyn. They were happy about it, because they said they felt like princesses. Verdict? It’s true. They do smell different. Similar, but different. Generally, I could still guess it’s Dior Addict Eau Fraiche, but somehow, Ashlyn smells sweeter and Chloe smells more floral. Anyway, I’ve diverted 😉
If Dior Addict 2 was your favourite, you don’t have to look further. Go ahead, take the plunge and buy this one! If you’re looking for something light, girly and fun, then you might want to try this. My personal favourites have to be Gucci II and Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, but I’ve been reaching for this on weekends when I go shopping. It somehow makes me feel more fun and active 😉 Have you tried this yet?
