    I have a vintage bottle of the spray parfum that comes in a fluted bottle with a gold scroll design on the cap--but OMG--one spray on a cotton ball, and into my bra--and it is the loveliest
    "new car'' leather you could ever imagine. The reaction is always What are you wearing??
    I guess it's new Jaguar or new Cadillac leather-but manages not to come off masculine..they aren't made like this anymore, although I must say I haven't tried Lancome's Cuir yet

    Hello Luvah!!! First spritz and yeah, it's old school in a big way with a large barnyard accord. I love this facet of old perfume making. I find the juxtaposition of opposing notes makes everything just a bit "more". Then there's a weird yeasty/floral period, then leather, or rather an interpretation of leather which is also what I find Bandit to be. In my mind, so far, the only fragrances that truly approximate leather for me have been Chanel Cuir de Russie and Dawn Spencer Hurwitz's Black Leather Jacket. Next some lovely florals and indoles, then barnyard, then it starts all over again. And the next day when I put on my housecoat, it was mmmmmm, which one did I put on yesterday and yeah, it was Diorling, still there, still beautiful, still intriguing. Just for info, my husband flipped for this and I have given total nasal fatigue with my "smell this and smell that". I didn't even have to ask, he volunteered, "what is that, wow, THAT I really like" While many may pine for Diorling in its vintage form (as I've stated before that's a road I won't set one toe on), the new version (2012) is very old school, doesn't smell like anything else and I would rebuy. Let's all at least give Dior credit for not abandoning all their old greats. 10 thumbs up. In fact, worth hoarding . . . .

    I have only tried the current version, and it is effortless to wear. The whole progression from top to base is entirely pleasant.

    Vintage Diorling smells almost exactly like vintage Bandit. It's a nice leather scent, but I agree 100% with Caltha's review

    Diorling is/was absolutely wonderful, and kicks the current rubbish that Dior is churning out into oblivion!

    I used to buy Diorling from the Dior boutique in Paris (where it was available until a few years ago) every time I went to Paris, and can't believe that this Great perfume has now gone. Imagine a more powdery version of Miss Dior, with less chypre, strong leather notes, and a heavy woody spice background; it was perfect!

    Jean Patou's Caline (now also sadly gone) was very similar to Diorling, but a little lighter.
