My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale order was sadly lacking. What did you haul?
Mine consisted of Dior Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet Eau de Toilette.
How awful. But there wasn’t anything that I really needed or wanted this year. It seemed quite uneventful.
Did you haul Blooming Bouquet?
I love it but….!
It’s an EDT and the wear time is kinda weak but I still love it none the less!
To me Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet is kinda a Summer-y, low calorie version of the original fragrance. This comes in the traditional square bottle with a ribbon wrapped topper to add that sweet, flirty feminine detail to the fragrance. I like this bottle alot perhaps because it’s so princess-like and girly due to the pink color of the fragrance.
Sadly, the fragrance comes in an EDT formula and only in a size of 1.7 oz. It’s limited edition and I thought it would be available in a larger size so I ended up hauling two which kinda stinks as it would be $85 for a 3.4 oz size if it was available versus the $64 per bottle I had to pay for the smaller 1.7 oz sizes.
I don’t suggest buying two the way I did though since the formula proves an ickle disappointing at this price due to the lighter, short wear time of the fragrance. I find myself refreshing up the fragrance at least three times daily as the notes are rather delicate and have a very short linger and throw.
Needless to say it is gorgeous though….
If Miss Dior Cherie is a little too in your face due to the heavier more dominant patchouli note you’ll really love Blooming Bouquet. Although patchouli is still very much a note here it’s very faint and provides a playful background for the softer more delicate floral notes in the mix.
Peony is a heavy note here and occasionally, I find this flower to cheapen fragrances but the sharpness and beauty of it combined with rose creates a floral layer that’s very feminine and beautiful in Blooming Bouquet. A soft white musk finishes the fragrance with a backdrop of soft patchouli and highlights of other soft floral notes that my nose isn’t sophisticated enough to name.
Although Dior considers this a fruity floral I personally get a very delicate, soft straight floral from the fragrance. It’s truly gorgeous with an edge of innocence that’s not easily captured in a fragrance.
Although perfect in so many ways I’d have appreciated an EDP version or a better throw…but I guess if it was any stronger it might kill what makes the fragrance so special, it’s soft, delicate heart.
Very worth a pick up regardless of the shorter wear time.
Anyone smell it?
