Summary: Just a tiny thing to add to other reviews that are more articulate about the scent: whatever flowers are involved, this is very sweet to me. We have bought this for years as a gift to someone who wears it as her signature perfume and cologne, and it is pretty unforgettable to me. It is way too sweet for me, and like Estee or Beautiful or pleasures or Eternity, can be easily overdone and smell up a room.
Summary: I loved the original DIORISSIMO perfume by Christian Dior. This version has hardly any fragrance and the ingredients seem to be different. I don't think it has any Lily of the Valley in it any more, which used to be the main ingredient.
Summary: I adore this perfume. When I first smelled it 2 months ago, i could not believe that I had not known this perfume even existed. It is made up of only 3 notes, Muguet, Jasmine and Ylang ylang, it is simple and absolutely gorgeous. When I wear it, which is everyday, it transports me to my childhood when I used to go to the botanical gardens with my mom. It is the most true scent of muget (lilly of the valley) I have ever come accross. My HG.
Summary: I like the idea of Lilly of the valley in this perfume but I also detect the smell of moth balls in it. I don't want to offend anyone but it is just what I get from this one, without even spraying it on my skin. I own this perfume and I myself don't use it ( bought without smelling it due to it be called - classic) but sometimes people like to go through my collection and spray it on themselves and for everyone it works different.
Summary: The lillies of the Valley are blooming now and Diorissiomo smells very true. Took a whiff of this, at all places, a garage sale--they were selling a mini set. 1st breath, it's all LOTV and very polite...I felt I needed a leather clutch with matching gloves, pearls and a hat! It hung around 3-4 hours and left a soft woodsy drydown.
Summary: The only note I could detect from this perfume was Jasmine. It lacks depth since it seems like there's only one note and reminds me of toilet/room freshner. The lasting power is about 4 to 6 hours and it's quite strong for an EDT. But then again, Dior's never really made many light perfumes. I ended up giving my bottle to a friend.
Summary: Lily-of-the-valley was Christian Dior's favorite, "lucky" flower, because it reminded him of his childhood in Normandie and his wonderful native home in Granville, which was surraunded with these flowers. When monsieur Dior died in 1957. his friends, collegues and admirers overlayed his coffin with these flowers. Knowing all of that, I would like to love this romantic perfume more. Unfortunately the scent of lily-of-the-valley is too sharp for me.
Summary: I LOVELOVELOVE this fragrance, but haven't purchased it since high school. Why? Driving in the car with my Dad one day he says, "sniff, sniff, what's that sour smell?" Oh man, is there no God? It turns to vinegar on me. But for you? Probably great!
