Vintage Miss Dior EdT

Hello Posse! Vintage Miss Dior EdT is about as close to a signature as I have. There is quite a stockpile of it here and it fits every mood like a glove. There are a few fragrances that sit happily alongside it as goes with anything, anytime, anywhere, stand out powerhouses yet curiously comfy. Guerlain has given me Mitsouko and Shalimar. There are Niki de Saint Phalle and Jacomo Silences, Clinique Aromatics Elixir, CHANEL Boy and Coco. Neela Vermeire Mohur, Mona di Orio Vanille and Eau Absolue and Cacharel Liberté too. I’m sure there are others that I’ve forgotten.

Here you can see one of my bottles with the banged up lid. It’s still here but not what I’m using today. I’m currently using a 100ml. It has propellant giving it the most outrageous gush, it also spurts out the sides so I get an ice cold blast most unexpectedly every time. Vintage Miss Dior EdT is special, it’s beauty stems from the furriness. Weird adjective for fragrance right but in this case it’s so well placed. Vintage Miss Dior EdT can wrap you up like the most expensive silk cashmere scarf, elegant and comfortable, impeccably stylish and yet curiously welcoming.

The legend goes that Christian Dior asked perfumers Jean Carles and Paul Vacher to create a fragrance that smells like the feeling of falling in love. It’s probably as close as the world will ever get.

It’s getting harder and harder to find at reasonable prices on the net. One good thing to know is that the fakers haven’t got a hold of it like they have with the CHANELs and Joy. All my purchases except one have been the real deal. Honestly that one could have turned nasty rather than been fake.

Surrender To Chance has vintage Miss Dior EdT samples from $6/ml

Do you wear a particular vintage a lot?

Do you find it hard when you’ve fallen in love with a very specific iteration of a perfume, and you have to contend with the variability of vintage bottles? I had a knockout PDT mini of Silences, so I bought a sealed 3.4 oz with the same kind of packaging, and just no... I have no idea if it turned, or it’s a mumsy floral-dominant iteration. There’s not the same icy iris overdose; it’s sweeter and fustier. I’ll see if the seller’s return policy holds true, otherwise I don’t know what to do. I wouldn’t want to swap something Not Right, but I’m not sure how much of this is subjective.

Seems like we are scent twins! Silences, Miss Dior, Niki de SPh, Aromatics, Coco, Mona's Vanille (which I got on my 50th birthday) : ALL my favorites... Dont know Libertee and Mohur, must find out now...

Wow, we are twinsies on the vintage Miss Dior, Silences, Mitsouko, and Coco! I've been on a real kick of wearing vintage Miss Dior or vintage Dioressence lately. I think it was you in one of your posts who turned me on to Silences -- I had never heard of it, but it is crazy amazing and at $12US was hands-down the best unsniffed purchase I have ever made! It really scratches that Chanel No 19 itch for much less $, so thank you for that!

I adore vintage fragrance! My favorite Dior is Dioressence; I have a beautiful old bottle which smells so much better than my current formulation. I also found a vintage Miss Dior that still smells wonderful. Two small bottles of Coty Emeraude from the 30's and 50's are my most beloved vintages, a masterpiece Oriental. Vintage Coty L'Aimant, vintage Molinard Habanita, vintage Lanvin Arpege and My Sin, vintage Guerlain Shalimar and L'Heure Bleu, and vintage Chanel No 5 are also favorites. Vintage Chanel No 5 is the only perfume that I have received fakes or which have turned, purchasing from Ebay sellers. I've learned the hard way it is best to always buy perfumes , especially vintage,in sealed boxes. We never know how the bottles were stored over the years; however, much better chance they were not tampered with. And now I love Niki de Saint Phalle thanks to you. And Coco for winter! I've never sampled Silences, which I need to search for.

I have a beautiful boxed set of vintage Dior Diorissimo from the late 50's. Original formula and just so beautiful!!! I also have a small purse size bottle of 60's Gurlean Shalimar, in the crystal decanter, pure parfum and it is exquisite! Love the vintage scents Portia!!!

I own a few vintage bottles of Shalimar, Miss Dior, both edc and edt, and 3 bottles of Mitsouko, and yet I can't help looking for more of those on eBay.

I do have a couple bottles of vintage Miss Dior and will have to drag a bottle out. I do have a few bottles of Deneuve and it's too expensive on Ebay right now. But I have vintage Bal overload in my house. I really must wear my vintages more.

That vintage Coty Chypre blows my doors off... it was spendy and there isn't much, so it isn't a signature, but I love it so much. Emeraude from the 70s was pretty awesome, too, and I have quite a stash of parfum de toilette.

Musette August 30, 2018

I have a gorgeous collection of vintage No5 (but of course!) as well as some gorgeous Lanvins (omg - I haz a vintage Arpege that makes me weep with joy) - and my stash of vinty Coty Chypre . Those are my vintage Grails. Oh, and AMOUAGE GOLD vintage (oh, my days!) xoxoxo

I had a little vintage Diorella parfum spray beauty that I was gifted by a fragrance gal on MUA and eagerly used it till it was gone. Then I bought a similar vintage Diorissimo parfum spray on ebay. I love the vintage Diors. I think someone gave me a sample smidge of vintage Miss Dior. I'll have to search it out and wear it today. :-) Those vintage Diors are amazing. Also love vintage Arpege and some of those old school classics like Gucci No. 3, Jolie Madame, etc. etc. I feel elegant wearing them. Love your taste in scents, Portia!

I have a little decant of Miss Dior from the 70s that I wear occasionally but more often just huff :) Like Shiva-woman, I have quite a supply of vintage Shalimar (nowhere near as nice as hers!) and 3 vintage Coco; also a big bottle of Dune (heavenly.) This year I've stumbled across a wonderful trove of vintage Obsession including a large kidney shaped bottle of the perfume, at Goodwill of all places. Can't wait to wear it this winter.

I have vintage Nocturnes de Caron but it isn't nearly as old as your Miss Dior! That and Gap Heaven are the two scents that I most associate with "me". And you know it's funny, P, but I always associate you with Niki :)

Shiva-woman August 30, 2018

I have stockpiled vintage Shalimar, enough to last me 'til my 179th birthday. I have two of the absolutely sublime 1960 Par Avion bottles, with seals (one now broken), of the most delicious dark, syrupy, sexy sultry elegant Shalimar. Hmm... I should check my hoard.

Wow!! That's great you found authentic vintage Miss Dior! I have to admit I'm always nervous about purchasing any vintage perfume from ebay, or anywhere else. I'm always afraid that they aren't the real deal or will smell "off", but there are so many vintage perfumes that I would love to have. I even tried getting samples from an online sample company, but the ones I ordered (Rochas Femme and Arpege) were not at all as I remembered them. Congratulations on your find, and enjoy them!
