Reviews of Dune

I tested Dune without much expectation. The woody opening smells just like how I remembered it while someone in my family wore it during my teenage years. Then, what a surprise when I sniffed my wrist a while later! The amber blended with benzoin, lily, jasmin and other flowers is such a pleasant scent, so smooth and comforting. I detect somehow a slight salty/sour/bitter/whatever note providing a tiny dry twist. The sandalwood lingers somewhere in drydown and slightly spices up, providing a deeper dimension. I don't get the beach/desert image as previous reviewers. But it definitely gives me a earthy feeling, like I was embraced by the mother earth. And the sillage and the longevity is pretty impressive for an EDT.

The only thing that I'm not so happy with is that I don't get the ethestics of the bottle. Otherwise, I'd definitely recommend this sensual fragrance.

Boozy and powdery, with a lot of peony... Dune is getting a very vintage feel now. Wearing it now is very empowering, very classy. I love it as much as I hated it. And I hate that I'm saying that.

Recently bought this again out of nostalgia; wore it when it first came out in 1991 and remember getting some great compliments when I'd wear it. I don't know if it's because of my body chemistry or lame nose, but I don't recognize any floral notes at all. It's always a rich blend of amber, musk and woody notes, with a touch of the bergamot & mandarin for a delicate reading of citrus. I don't mind at all -- when I want rose, peony, etc. I've got other fragrances to wear. But when I wear Dune it's because I want the warm, soft yumminess of amber. So glad I have this back in my fragrance wardrobe!

A warm embrace between freshness and strength,DUNE emanates a feeling of balance and serenity.Every man I've known loved it on ladies.It is an exotic fragrance,not too heavy and not too light,just the perfect blend for every season.Classic,Sweet, Elegance,Radiant,Ladylike and Appealing.

Right top notes of bergamot and peony rest over a soft and feminine bouquet of floral notes while the sweetness of the base notes due of vanilla and especially amber makes you feel like a breath of sunshine.It is a beach party for the senses.

It does not scream for attention.In fact if you like amber,you'll love this scent.DUNE is suitable for any age and any occasion.Totally it is not the best female perfumes by DIOR or the better than male version but this EDT is really lovely and interesting for me.


Longevity?preponderant than a EDT on my skin.DIOR is always interminable.

It has a blend of citrus, spices, musk and wood.
It is an oriental-floral type of perfume.

I consider this scent to be sharp, heavy, and mysterious.
I gave this thumbs down, because it is to masculine for my liking.
