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.
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.
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!
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: The box in which the perfume was sent was well wrapped, however, when I open the box the bottler was empty. It seem as if the perfume spilled all over the box. I don't know how to issue a return.
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 came to Amazon to purchase my fragrance Dior Addict. 3.4 oz 90.00. What I received was a tester full size but a tester that would be used in store for customers to try. I paid 90.00 for collateral product. I am very upset with this. My career of 30 yrs was spent in the cosmetics industry. I am sure that Dior will be very unhappy when I tell them about this. Who has authorized you to sell their fragrance testers? And for full retail price.
Summary: The Dior 2012 formulation (gold trim) was a spicy, grown-up powerhouse of a fragrance, however this 2014 reformulation (silver trim) is a disaster - lacking the sandalwood, tonka bean, night queen flower and other ingredients needed to temper and balance the over-sweetness of the vanilla.
