Advantages: great for day wear light and fruity
Disadvantages: doesn't hang around long enough
I was lucky enough to receive a little box of Dior goodness which included amongst other Dior perfumes, a bottle of Dior Addict.
I previously reviewed Miss Cherie and Hypnotic poison which are both fragrances that wouldn't have immediately attracted me in a store. Addict however, is more in keeping with the types of fragrances I normally go for in terms of packaging and scent.
The bottle is of clean, simple, modern design which would look good on your bathroom shelf.
The bottle I have is transparent pink tinted glass with a silver square shaped lid giving the clean lines and in my opinion a slick stylish look.
Dior Addict will cost you around £35.00 for 50ml of the Eau De Toilette and around £47 for the 100ml bottle.
Dior Addict is a lighter fragrance than Miss Cherie and Poison. Therefore, I would be more likely to wear Dior Addict day to day rather than on a special night out.
Dior Addict is advertised in many stores as having a top note of grapefruit, heart of freesia and a base note of white musk.
I found that all of these notes come through perfectly. Straight after spraying on my skin I got an immediate burst of fruity freshness, however, this settles in to more of soft sweet floral fragrance. The grapefruit balances out this fragrances perfectly giving it a zest and bite that keeps the floral and musky notes from becoming too sickly sweet and heavy.
My only complaint about Dior Addict is unfortunately I didn't find it lasted that long enough! The fragrance is mild. After wearing for an hour I have found you can no longer smell it without your nose getting firmly acquainted with your skin. So if you want another burst of this lovely fruity fragrance you would need to top up throughout the day.
Overall, I would recommend Dior Addict. It's a great choice for day to day work light, floral, fruity and sophisticated.
Summary: A lovely fruity floral affair with a touch of Dior chic
