I'm a major smell person - I love perfumes, candles, soaps, etc. A couple months ago, I was in Ulta with my friend Brandy (who is also a product junkie like myself); and we were sniffing every single godforsaken a couple of perfumes, and I across "Miss Dior."
It was love at first sniff.
So when Christmas came, and I opened a box of this Natalie Portman endorsed perfume, I was absolutely delighted to add this to my not-so-little collection of amazing smelling things.
And props to Dior - their packaging is so pretty, and feminine! Nordstrom's description of the scent was "Italian mandarin essence, Egyptian jasmine absolute, Indonesian patchouli essence."
Look, I have no idea what "patchouli" is, but it smells damn good. Personally, I think it's the perfect "going on a date" perfume. The likeable scent sticks solidly for a good 4-5 hours, and it goes on light so that it's not overpowering a room.
Men - I know it's a little early, but if you have a lady in your life that wears perfume - this would make an awesome Valentine's gift! Ulta doesn't seem to have it on their site at this moment, but Nordstrom does. And if she doesn't like the smell of patchouli, then dump her.
