I hope you're all well and had a great weekend! I worked this weekend but I've got the next 2 days off which I am planning on using productively by going down the gym and writing up one or 2 blog posts for you.
I've never done a fragrance review on my blog before, mainly because I find it incredibly difficult describing perfumes. I usually just smell them in the shop and go yes I like this or no, this is horrible. I suppose that wouldn't be very helpful in a blog post haha! One amazing scent I definitely want to share with you lovelies though is Christian Dior's Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. This is my all time favourite perfume and one I have been wearing for many years. It was first released in 2005 and used to be known as Miss Dior Cherie, but recently Dior have renamed it Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. I always have to have a bottle of this in my perfume collection and can rarely walk past a Dior counter without a spritz or 2 of this lovely scent!
Christian Dior have several fragrances in the Miss Dior range, all packaged in a gorgeous square glass bottle with a super cute silver bow on it. My favourite is their Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. It's a beautiful floral fragrance that's not too sweet and definitely my favourite perfume of all time!
Now I've said I'm completely rubbish at describing scents, but I've found this on the Selfridges website if you are interested in an actual description of the scent:
Bold and elegant, Miss Dior eau de parfum by Dior reveals the timeless chic of Dior in a sensual floral chypre fragrance. Sicilian Mandarin, Blood Orange and Bergamot form a captivating combination. The floral and feminine heart beats with a blend of Indian and Egyptian Jasmine Absolute combined with Essence of Damask Rose and Tunisian Orange Blossom Absolute. The modern and regal Essence of Indonesian Patchouli gives the fragrance an utterly contemporary level of sophistication. Finally, the woody base notes of Indian Sandalwood and Vetiver give off warm and sensual accords.
I know it's a bit of a cop out to just copy and paste something from a website into a blog post (sorry!), but I wouldn't know how else to describe the Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. If you've not smelt it before, I highly recommend having a little sniff next time you are at a Dior counter. Let me know if you love it just as much as I do!
At the moment Dior are even giving away these 7ml sample nail polishes in Boots when you purchase a Dior fragrance, just in time for Valentine's Day!
Both colours are stunning and a very welcome glamorous addition to my nail polish collection!
Here's the price list if you are thinking of treating yourself, (or asking your other half to treat you haha) to this lovely perfume:
Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 30ml RRP £47.00
Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 50ml RRP £66.00
Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 100ml RRP £93.00
I would definitely recommend shopping around though because many stores often have fragrances on offer, especially around Valentine's Day, so you'll rarely end up having to pay the full price. I paid £58.50 when I bought my 50ml bottle in Boots last week and got the 2 nail polishes as my free gift with purchase.
Do you have an all time favourite perfume that you always have to have a bottle of in your collection? Which one is it?
I hope you've enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!
