Advantages: Lovely aroma, lasts well, nice bottle.
Disadvantages: A little pricey for me
On a recent visit to my cousin's house she took me to see the view from her bedroom now that some trees have been cut down at the end of her extensive garden. It's a great view as she has a balcony which takes in a view of farmland and the river. I admit though, that on this occasion, I was more drawn to the display of perfumes on her dressing table. I thought I had a lot of perfumes until seeing hers. I think she must be obsessed with smells, and receives any new fragrance that she sees. She explained that a lot of these were gifts and any had been purchased in America, as she goes to Florida at least once a year.
Among other perfumes that were new to me, stood was a bottle of Miss Dior Cherie L'eau. I don't know where she obtained this particular one from. She told me to help myself to a spray, and so I did. I thought the fragrance attractive. Then I wished I hadn't said anything, as she told me to keep it, as she had been bought another bottle of this by her son, and had too many perfumes as it was. I did refuse, but I know when to give in, so relented. After all, who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth? Not that my cousin is at all horsey! This bottle was almost full.
I have worn this fragrance a few times now and I am very impressed. Not only does it smell delightful but it lasts well. The smell seems to improve and be even nicer after an hour or so of wearing, in my opinion.
I was quite pleased to have this given, especially when saw hat Boots were selling it for £64 for a 100ml bottle! I never pay this much for a fragrance, so a gift is the only way this would occupy a position on my dressing table.
Knowing that this was quite expensive, by my standards at least, I became quite interested to know more. I had a look on the Dior website. This can be found at: www.dior.com
This is what they have to say about this fragrance
' Miss Dior Chérie L'eau is a smiling pastel fragrance. It is a fragrance born in spring evoking the awakening of nature and senses. Miss Dior Chérie is a refreshing, delectable and luminous eau for a burst of charm. It is a fresh, cheerful fragrance, a promise of pastel happiness for an elegant young woman, full of life. With her sparkling allure, detached charm and day-to-day grace, her beauty symbolizes freshness and spontaneity." François Demachy - Dior Fragrance Creator'
Yes, it does smell spring like, or even summery. I consider it to be fresh and pretty and most of all...interesting. It smells floral but deeper, with a more exotic fragrance, I feel.
TOP NOTE-BLOOD ORANGE ESSENCE
Blood orange is a variety of orange that contains anthocyanin, a pigment common in many types of fruit but rarely found in citrus fruit, giving its flesh its reddish color. It is a sweet and tasty fruit and is particularly popular in Italy. Blood orange essence gives off fresh, energizing tones.
HEART NOTES-ESSENCE OF NEROLI
The floral fragrance of Neroli and Calabrian Bergamot is a traditional combination used in High Perfumery eaux de Colognes.
Patchouli is a plant originally from Indonesia and Malaysia. A key element of the perfumer's palette, its essence is obtained by steam distilling the dried leaves. It is used in chypre, woody and oriental fragrances.
I think this fragrance is suitable for all age groups and although 'spring like' I wouldn't hesitate to wear it all year round at various occasions. I admit though that owing to the price and the fact that when this runs out I probably won't purchase a new bottle, I want to make it last. Therefore, for me, this won't be an everyday fragrance but one I'll be happy to apply on those rare occasions when I dress up and want to smell, especially nice
I think the container is a beautiful design which any female would be pleased to place on her dressing table. I believe it looks good against modern, simplistic style décor or a more traditional look. It isn't overbearing but classy. The pretty bow around the neck of the silver lid completes the feminie effect.
In my opinion this is one of the better fragrances to perform well for a long period of time. I can smell this on my wrist for hours and it remains pretty.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
As I have said, it's a little on the pricey side for me. However if you are prepared top pay this price then I'm sure you'll be pleased.
It seems to be available from most perfume stores and online outlets but from where I looked it appeared to be selling for around the same price. I'm sure that those of you who are adept at picking up bargains will find a better price.
It sells for £64 per 100 ml in Boots the chemist.
Debenhams sells this for £48 per 50ml and £68 per 100ml.
Summary: I would recommend his fragrance which is suitable for all ages and occasions.
