Summary: When I sampled Dior Addict EDP, found it a bit cloying, but I enjoy vanilla in a fragrance, if it's done well, so I decided to wait until dry down before jumping ship with this one. Little did I know I set myself up for self-torture by not scrubbing this off immediately. By the time dry down occurred, the vanilla had escalated into a nauseating, sickening, sweet aroma.
Summary: This is one of the worst perfumes I've ever smelled. I went to Sephora with my gift cards ready to get this but once I sprayed it I changed my mind completely. I read so many positive reviews on this that I thought i'd love it. I can't understand why so many people love this but that is their opinion and good for them. I waited for the drydown but that still was bad.
Summary: Heavy, heavy, and heady fragrance with a sickening sweetness. I sold Dior when this fragrance launched to a very sexy ad. Dior makes some nice fragrances, but this is not one of them. It just screams, "French Whore." Amazed at the good reviews. If you hate Dior's Poison, you'll hate this one, too.
Summary: I worked for Dior at one time, and this fragrance was launched with a huge hoopla. And boy did it have an effect when I first whiffed it. It is a very heady overpowering smell. All I could think was, "French whore." I was extremely surprised that so many liked it, but to each his own, as they say. I do have a girlfriend whose guy asked her to stop wearing it. Dior has several nice fragrances, but this one - NOT!
Summary: This smells like pepper to me. Like I opened a container of pepper and took a big whiff. I don't like it. The pepper smell is overwhelming to me. It contains Tonka bean, which is what I believe makes it smell like pepper. Or it might be the sandalwood.? I don't like balsamic or aromatic perfumes.
im starting to wonder if amazon sells counterfeit perfumes.

Summary: this is not the first time ive had weird experiences (on amazon) with perfumes i know and love. the packaging and labeling of this bottle was different from that of the bottles ive purchased from sephora or department stores. the spray nozzle broke after a week or two. the sillage of the perfume was terrible, and it even seemed a bit watered down. very uncharacteristic for dior perfumes.
The perfume has no smell or not the fragrance I'm used to

Summary: Well I don't hate Addict because it was always my favorite perfume, but the bottle I received has no smell to it. I can't smell it , my husband can't, and friends can't. It was always a scent that stayed with me and people would always remark how good it smelled on me. So I don't know if this is a defective bottle or what. So I'm disappointed and didn't know how to do anything about it. If I had bought it from a store, I would have taken it back.
Summary: I was completely ripped off. Product was nothing like what the actual brand produces. Such a waste of money and not at all a smooth transaction. Completely unhappy. Wouldn't even give it 1 star..
Summary: I have met a couple of people who are in love with this fragrance - but only a couple. Most people I know have found this perfume to be a downright assault of the nose. I bought a bottle on a whim without having smelled it first and the first few hours of wearing it I didn't think it was too bad. And then the headache started. Everyone who smelled me mad a negative comment. I figured it was just my chemistry. I gave it to a friend.
