Another nausea causer from Dior. I have always felt that Dior is not very good in making oriental scent though it does have some block buster such as Poison in the line. But this did not change my impression for the brand. The vanilla scent in Addict is so potent that it dominates the whole composition from the beginning to the end, which leaves no rooms for the flower core to bloom, and I believe it is this unbalanced and overdosed vanilla makes this fragrance a flat and heavy annoyance. The multi-facet quality appearing in many recognized oriental classics such as Coco, Opium or Samsara is therefore totally absent in this work. Going to something extreme might have become a principle for CD's oriental creations to succeed because they did it in Poison. But this will be inapplicable to Addict because it is less unique and not as pioneering as Poison in every aspect. It may appear as a gem to some vanilla lovers but definitely not a masterpiece for sure.
