Summary: I am not sure where this review should go : the closest modern rendition I believe is now called miss dior original. This review is for the original Miss Dior vintage eau de cologne houndstooth bottle splash formulation with the houndstooth cap, not the white one. It's an animal floral leather chypre. An acquired taste if you are formerly only familiar with modern chypre. There is a spray bottle from the 1980s that is clear and fluted and has a metal cap.
Summary: I love this perfume. I really, really do. This is what comes to mind when I think luxurious French perfume. It smells clean, powerful, and beautiful. I have read the many lamentations of the much-loved Miss Cherie Dior from 2005. I own that perfume as well and can honestly say that I prefer this one. Don't get me wrong, I still like the previous one, but this is the more sophisticated and refined sister.
Excerpt: I am extremely picky and sensitive to smells. I get headaches with some smells even if I like them. I am also a nurse and like to smell nice, but not irritate a patient who might be sensitive to smells. It never gives me a headache nor does it annoy my patients. This fragrance is perfect. Everyone compliments me when I wear it. It's never overpowering. The men love it and women want to know what I'm wearing and where I purchased it. It's a sexy but clean fragrance.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Everyone compliments me, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: I'm writing this after trying a sample of Miss Dior eau de toilette. I am not familiar with the old version and I don't know what's in this scent (except the pachouli), but I was surprised that I liked it. I'm usually not a fan of pachouli but in this fragrance, I'm OK with it. This comes on strong when you first spray it on but then it settles down into a lovely fragrance. This is very long-lasting. I put it on in the afternoon and could still smell it the next morning.
Summary: Wow. I have never written a fragrance review, which is a little funny consider I own 40 colognes for myself. Got this one for my girlfriend because the price it right. It smells amazing, one of those scents that smells so familiar for some reason, yet I can't put my finger on it. Maybe because I've smelled it in my dreams! Who knows. It's infatuating. It's not quite floral, but it's a deep womanly smell, no word to describes it better than 'sexy'!
"2005 Miss Cherie Dior eau de parfum a la Christine Nagel"...now hidden in bottles labeled "Miss Dior"

Summary: There are not many things this New Orleans Diorian enjoys more than pretty glass bottles of volatile particles lining the shelves of her perfume collection. In normal times, proof of corporate chicanery would permanently bar a future relationship with the source of such essence-ial evil. But, speak in hushed tones when you talk of Absinthe, K&B Nectar Soda, the Forms of Plato, and Dior.
Summary: Like so many others, I got this hoping for greater affinity to the now discontinued Miss Dior Cherie perfume. NOT. There is the slightest similarity, but in all bad ways. Cherie had strawberries and champagne notes, but rather than smelling just gourmand, it was sophisticated and mysterious. This non-Cherie perfume is all pachouli!!! Yuck. Well okay, it does smell like a designer perfume, but nothing special or memorable. Very much a generic perfume smell.
