Summary: I waited after wearing this fragrance several times before reviewing it, as I felt it deserved that kind of consideration and respect due to the complexity. That being said, this smells like sex. Not sexy, flirty, come hither, nor trashy. It smells like you did it in the car on the way to a fancy restaurant and don't care one bit that your hair is messy. It has a spicy, woodsy, bold smell, but a raw fluid element to it that cannot be ignored.
Summary: @bluemarinejose i wholeheartedly agree with your review of Dune. I get it! This perfume is a work of art. So original its in a class of its own. It's an acquired "taste"and i appreciate the genuis and as i said originality.
Summary: Women? This one's almost unisex to me. Starts off fresh, dry and grassy. but dry grassy hay. Then turns sweter, medicinal Anise like. Finally dries to a soft sweet powdery must that lingers. Really complex and constantly evolving. Lasts a long time. I can see how this would be a favorite. Dior has always had these weird exotic takes on femininity.
Summary: the first hour is horrible. then come out the amber and camomile )not listed but dominant on my skin) on me. but after that it becomes soft, warm and very feminine. like a warm skin. like my natural scent but better. i love it. stays for about 6 hours.
Excerpt: I wear this exclusively and purchased the larger bottle last time through this website and loved it. This time I purchased the smallest one, for travel, and it is not right. The actual perfume is dark in color and the scent is off. Already threw the packaging away so unable to take advantage of return policy. <br />If this had been my first purchase would never order again. Will try one more time...very cautiously.
Summary: Love at first sniff. Dune is probably my most unique fragrance. The first half is a breezy, slightly spicy scent (bergamot always skews spicy on me). Not stifling -- if anything, it gives off an aloof vibe. Dune doesn't care if you like her or not. My favourite part, though, is the drydown -- it is an intoxicating mix of vanilla and woods. Definitely a unisex scent; this would be quite sexy on a man.
Summary: I am running out of this fast and wanted to replace it but at £60.00 it is too much. Recently purchased Cobra by Jeanne Arthes and it smell much the same as DUNE really surprised and happy I found something cheaper, but just as good.
Excerpt: The Dune was okay. The price was good. The scent is not a strong as I am used to with this item. The lasting strength is just not there made me wonder about the quality and if the item is not maybe a second or a knock off.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Great Value, Not Overpowering, Sensual
