Dior Addict Eau De Toilette Review
Dior’s launching a brand new Dior Addict perfume for Summer. This time, it comes in an updated glass flacon with a removable cap (no more leaking in bags), and it’s a soft fresh white floral along the veins of J’adore, Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet and Marc Jacobs Honey.
If you’re expecting a lighter version of the original Addict, don’t. If you’re familiar with Dior’s approach to the Poison range, the Addict range is similar. They are mostly completely different from each other. The biggest commonality is the bottle design.
I’ve seen reviews complaining about the fact that it smells nothing like the original Addict. Get with the programme ladies, lol. They are not twins or cousins. They are like a group of unrelated models wearing similar themed couture outfits at a runway show.
- Top notes: Sicilian Mandarin
- Heart notes: Sambac Jasmine, Tunisian Orange Blossom
- Base notes: Vanilla, sandalwood
The notes jasmine, orange blossom, sandalwood and vanilla are actually similar to the original Addict. But Addict contains other different notes, and the Night Queen Flower, Bulgarian Rose and Bourbon Vanilla are much more dominant than the other notes, so it will smell like a completely different scent. Dior Addict is as dark, heady and sexy. Addict Eau De Toilette is bright, sweet and soft.
The “sillage” and throw (how far the scent projects and trails) is soft to moderate depending on temperature. This is not a loud scent and it’s nice for the office, for cuddling, etc. You will not gas anyone. And lasting power isn’t fantastic, which is typical of fresh white florals in the EDT concentration. I get about 3-4 or so hours before I stop noticing it.
The 100ml bottle I have here is specially-engraved at the ION Dior Backstage boutique in Singapore, where a professional engraver was present the past Saturday and will be there again next Saturday (31 May).
We took inspiration from the campaign visual; a woman in a floral dress. Except the engraver took a photo of my face to try and engrave it in my likeness. LOL, I still think it turned out more like Natalie Portman in the Blooming Bouquet ads but I’m not complaining; it’s gorgeous!
