It was just last year that Dior introduced their Dior Addict To Life fragrance in the purple bottle. Did anyone go and take an ol’ sniff at it? I checked it out at the airports when I was passing by (Duty Free is the BEST place to sniff around at perfumes because there are so many choices and you are rarely bugged … very much) It was a heavier, sweeter slightly muskier scent than Addict 2 which is one of the bestsellers in the Dior fragrance ranges, I’m told.
Me? I’m a Miss Dior Cherie and J’Adore girl I love the fresh young scent of Miss Dior Cherie and the heavier, more sensual scent of J’Adore. In fact, I wear J’Adore so often now, because the bottle is too tall to fit into my cabinet and so its the one I reach for just as I exit the room. Maybe that’s what they had in mind when they designed the bottle LOL!
But today, I’m here to tell you that if you are a fan of the Dior Addict fragrances, you may notice 2 new ones popping up – Dior Addict Eau Fraiche and Dior Addict Eau Sensuelle. Don’t worry about emptying your pockets yet – there’s a little catch to it Also, check out the commercial for these fragrances. If there’s one thing I enjoy about fragrances, its the commercials that go with it. Even if I don’t like how it smells, I always enjoy a good perfume commercial! The only comment I have is this – How come I didn’t have as much fun as the girl did on the beach this weekend?
Coming back to Eau Fraiche and Eau Sensuelle, they’re actually the renaming of Dior Addict 2 (Eau Fraiche) and Dior Addict To Life (Eau Sensuelle)! Here, look at the label on the Addict Eau Fraiche fragrance I have – it reads Dior Addict 2.
If you noticed this too, don’t panic. You didn’t get a fake item I guess Dior just didn’t have time to make new labels before the products rolled out
One good thing to come out of the renaming is that the names are now descriptive of the scents. Eau Fraiche (Dior Addict 2) is a fresh fragrance that opens up with a slightly fizzy citrus note and then mellows down to a fresh slightly woody scent that isn’t overwhelming. Its a nice scent for hot days. I like that almost fizzy note that hits my nose the first time I spritz it on.
Eau Sensuelle (Dior Addict To Life) starts out with a significantly stronger floral note and then mellows down to a warmer floral scent that easily takes you to an evening rendezvous. Eau Sensuelle doesn’t sit on my skin as well as Eau Fraiche does though so I prefer the former with its zesty zing!
But I promised you a fun video didn’t I? Here is it
Incidentally, I was out on the beach this weekend. Unfortunately, I did not have as much fun as the girl did, nor was I in St. Tropez. I should have taken Eau Fraiche out with me shouldn’t I?!
Any fans of Addict 2 (Eau Fraiche) or Addict To Life (Eau Sensuelle) out there?
