I was rooting around in my perfume cupboard when I came across Christian Dior Chris 1947. Ah the memories it brought back!
Chris 1947 was the first Dior perfume I bought for myself and it was extra special because it was very limited edition and only available at duty free in this part of the world.
This is my 2nd bottle. I finished up the first, hunted down another bottle and have never seen it since because its limited edition mah… 😛
Unlike the perfumes I was using at the time, Chris 1947 does not last as long on me. By the end of the day, all I’d get is a faint whiff of sweetness which wasn’t too bad if you come to think of it.
The smell is sweetly fruity-floral and a little sharp when first spritzed. It then mellows down to something warmer. Fitting, because it was targeted at younger women. I don’t think Christian Dior has made a scent like this again.
I stopped wearing it because after a while, the scent turned on me and made me feel sick and nauseous. But recently, I took it out for a whirl and its alright again. Body chemistry sure has a lot to do with how a a scent smells!
Have you come across this scent? Or do you remember it at all? 🙂
