Reviews of Gris Dior / Gris Montaigne

I sampled it few times from my official dabber. This is another dull, cheap white musk loaded, poorly executed composition from Francois Demachy, more like LVMH's inept marketing lot came up with. Official blurb says it has jasmine in it - perhaps a trace amount. I get some some facets of rose that are all too common in the market, especially in Dior's own high end line. It is now renamed and sold as Gris Dior - mine is the former. It seems Monsieur Demachy has been suffering from some form of creative barrenness for a very long time. The sillage and longevity are quite good. But at this level, especially if one considers the price and the whole aura of Dior Privee line (or whatever it is called now) those two should be secondary concern. Please do not waste your money on this piece of uninspiring drab! 1/5

The hesperidic (slightly acid) Gris Montaigne's opening conjures me vaguely for a while the vintage Habit Rouge Edt from the 90's (just an illusion) before to ascertain the emersion of a more profane contemporary lush (jammy floral) presence supported by a warm synth ambery/tangerinic patchouli kind of sultry and musky (in this further phase it seems to handle with a more banal Elie Saab Le Parfum, Cartier La Pantere or several vulgar PR Black Xs or Marc Jacob's). Frankly a disappointment.

Complete Masterpiece. Yes it is quite sweet, and very powdery floral, but Classy, this is the most classiest scent I have ever sniffed, beating Baccarat rouge in my opinion.

I have wore this more than a few times now, and it is a soft powder beast, lasts and lasts, i do feel it would smell better on a woman, but Wooow this is Sexy and addictive.
Highly Highly Recommending this if you dont mind sweet powder bomb.

I love this, possibly in my top 3 Maison Dior collection.
Gives off on my skin a lot of Violet, like a fizzy Palma Violet.

Scent 9.5 -10
Performance 9 -10
Sillage 9 - 10

Incredible 11hr + on my skin.

A jammy rose coated with a dry sandalwood powder wood base. This is my impression of the smell of Gris Montaigne. The jammy quality of the rose derives from bergamot blended for a tart fruit character of rose blend which is revved up with swirls of patchouli and jasmine. This opening note is quite a lively swoosh of paisley attitude, a brisk wake up burst with roses at the heart and sandalwood/cedar as a backdrop base. The base has the feel and scent of fine kaolin powder used in makeup powder or porcelain clay only with a sandalwood softness. A smooth transition of notes keeps this scent on the minimal side of possibilities within the Rose and Patchouli genre of fragrances. Well done, and nicely buttoned up!

Stardate 20170622:

A masculine Rose Patchouli floral that does not smell like traditional Rose Patchouli.
There is a grape soda accord too which perhaps adds that je ne sais quoi.
Lasts long and is very safe.

Dior Gris Montaigne is a sharp, powdery, floral. I definitely detect something floral beyond the rose in the note breakdown, but I can't emphasize enough that it is very powdery and I'm not sure why, as there's no iris or tonka, for example. Still, there's a freshness of bergamot but a heavy-handed use of rose in the opening and heart.

Patchouli comes out more the dry down in concert with some sandalwood and cedar to smooth things over, and I'm afraid I don't get any amber out of this, even after several hours on skin.

Certainly Gris Montaigne is mainly feminine-leaning, but I'm sure plenty of men would be comfortable pulling this off. For me, though, it's not my type of powdery fragrance, as I tend to be pretty selective on how much powder I'll tolerate and when. I think it would be fine for most women, though.

Performance is very good, and overall this leans slightly to cold weather but it could be year-round, just not viable for the extreme heat.

Again, might be nice for women and some men but not a winner on my skin.
