This will be one for perfume collectors and afficionados. Dior has come up with 2 limited edition Dior Addict 2 and Dior Addict Shine perfume bottles as part of the couture collection.
The Couture Collection for the Dior Addict perfumes reflect the paisley design of the Dior Cruise collection 2008. Delicate paisley motifs cover the pink bottle of Dior Addict 2 and the beige bottle of Dior Addict Shine – its really pretty – something you have to see for yourself. I have and I think its gorgeous.
I’m not much good with perfumes but I’ll try to describe the 2 that I have smelt.
Dior Addict 2 has a fresh citrus scent based on bittersweet grapefruit and tangy bergamot, and then settles down to a slightly musky scent. It’s the fragrance of a sprightly young woman brimming with unaffected sensuality and vivacious femininity.
Dior Addict Shine has a fresh floral scent of citron, featuring a gardenia-raspberry accord and settling down to a woody scent of ceder. It’s the fragrance of a radiant young woman, glowing with irresistible charm and sensuality.
Of the two, I prefer the Dior Addict 2 – I like musky scents and floral scents don’t sit well with me.
The limited edition Dior Addict Couture collection is available at all Dior counters from March 2009 and will retail for RM218 for 50ml.
On a side note, I wore one of my favourite perfumes last week – Stella. It is a perfume I first tried and liked in London and I got mine from Heathrow as a reminder of the trip. I’ve always loved the scent. However, last week it made me feel a little nauseous – I have no idea why! It smelt fine on me (I checked with a friend) but it made me uncomfortable nonetheless. I’m going to try it again and see how I feel. It’ll be a pity if I ended up hating the one scent I used to love so much! Then again perhaps I could then replace it with Dior Addict 2 hehe…
