Hi Posse, I can’t stop myself spritzing my Vintage Miss Dior. My current bottle is an Eau de Toilette and it is rapidly diminishing. Even from the very first moment that it swooshes out of the natural spray I am filled with deep swelling happiness. As soon as it’s on I smile and breathe in luxuriantly. Not sure if it smells so good because I love it to bits (I do) or if it’s got an added sparkle because this Vintage Miss Dior is decades old and will never be produced so perfectly ever again. Then I ask myself, “Does it really matter?” and I go back to smiling goofily and enjoying the lovely fragrant ride.
Vintage Miss Dior by DIOR
Fragrantica gives these featured accords:
Top: Aldehydes, gardenia, galbanum, clary sage, bergamot
Heart: Carnation, iris, orris root, jasmine, neroli, lily-of-the-valley, rose, narcissus
Base: Labdanum, leather, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, oakmoss, vetiver
So this bottle had definitely been through the wars before it came to me. Basically the lid has been melted at some point and doesn’t go back on properly. The label has been dirtied so much that you need to find the exact right light or you can’t read it. Only 50ml but the juice inside is perfect. Pristine!
Personally I can’t pick the notes out of Vintage Miss Dior. Part of me worries that if I spend too much time doing that then the trick will be revealed and I will lose interest in its magical wafts. so lets just say that I can smell oakmoss and a bunch of gorgeousness that makes me smile.
