Confused? escentual.co.uk have posted a blog post with further details and a guide to how you can tell which is which:‘Miss Dior Cherie’ – This will soon disappear from shelves and be renamed Miss Dior
‘Miss Dior’ (with pink juice and packaging) – The new name for what was known as ‘Miss Dior Cherie’
‘Miss Dior’ (with yellow-ish liquid and packaging) – This will soon disappear from shelves, and be renamed ’Miss Dior Original’
‘Miss Dior Original’ – The new name for what was called ‘Miss Dior’ (The one from 1947)
Although this has been done before (Nina Ricci's Signoricci 2, became Signoricci after the original was discontinued), It's probably the most high profile case we can think of.
Come back soon for news of Shalimar Parfum Initial being renamed Shalimar, No. 5 Eau Premiere being renamed No. 5 and A*Men Pure Malt becoming A*Men.....
Update: Elena from Perfume Shrine posted about this a few months ago : All That's Wrong with Perfume Nowadays - well worth a read.
Update 2: The Dior website shows both fragrances on a Miss Dior page. The original is now called Miss Dior Original. No mention of anything ever being Cherie.
