Christian Dior Leather Oud
Okay, Oud is clearly the new fruity floral. I fully expect that there will be
soon a new Britney fragrance called “Infected” that will pair it with Ozone
berries, bubblegum accord and A-200 Pyrinate.
It would totally tee me off if this weren’t really lovely. This Dior has just
the perfect touch of glove leather, oud, smoke and cedar, cut with what I smell
as a bit of citrus. It stays close to the skin but has enough throw to invite
you in to sniff. It’s apparently marketed as a masculine scent, but to be
honest I think it falls a bit more in the category of the clutch clutching camp.
Bandit would scare it in the locker room and there are several Montales that
would cause pearls to be clutched.
Would I buy it? Maybe, if I could actually use the Dior website, which seems to
have been made about 1998 to find out where I can get it and how much it is.
Yes, I have an actual Dior boutique blocks from my hovel and could wander over
there to see what the price might be. If it’s there. But that’s not the point,
Not everyone does.
With all those other leather/ouds out there sampling and stating prices, what is
Dior bringing to the table other than a moderately serviceable Oud and an
exclusionary marketing plan?
I’d give you prices, but I don’t know them. My sample came from a friend.
