    Re: An essential oil chypre

    I finished my blend shortly after the last post here and tucked it away so I'd forget about it and quit messing with it, bad habit I have. :)

    It came out pretty well actually. I'd have to say it...

    Hmm...sandalwood. My drydown needs something, that's for sure. I do have some sandalwood.

    Re: An essential oil chypre

    I was wondering about a drop or two of atlas cedar in my chypre blend. It could use a little wood in the drydown.

    Diorella has a note of overripe fruit, or compost, or something along those...

    Re: An essential oil chypre

    Yesterday evening I combined the rose vial, the jasmine vial and the oakmoss and bergamot vial (no labdanum), added 2 drops of sweet basil and the result smelled wonderful! Just now I put 1 drop in...

    Re: An essential oil chypre

    There are very little essential oils in those 3 vials, I was just starting. Maybe I'll mix the whole kit and kaboodle together and start out with one vial, adding essential oils one at a time.

    I...

    Re: An essential oil chypre

    Thank you for all the info!

    I have discovered that about galbanum. I have 1 drop in that vial and it has completely taken over.

    So the ratio for top should be 20%, middle 25% and base 55%, or...

    An essential oil chypre

    Hello all! I have been playing around here and there with scent blending, with mixed results. Some good, some awful. My favorite perfume types are chypres, and I'd like to have a go at blending...

    Re: Diorella, newer compared to older

    I have not tried Miss Dior yet, but she is on my wishlist. Turns out I'm not as fond of some of the
    other Dior chypres as I am Diorella. Dioressence and Diorama were not my friends. :( After...

    Thank you!

    I have one of the ribbed bottles with the periwinkle top that dates to 2001, and the bottle I just got that dates to 2003 and they are indistinguishable. I would love to get my hands...

    Re: Diorella, newer compared to older

    Diorella may last forever, but not on me. I've asked co-workers "Can you smell my perfume?"
    a couple hours after I've applied it and they can't. I only use one spray on my chest, I
    don't do the...

    Re: Diorella, newer compared to older

    Interesting thread, thank you! Citric-green chypres are my current favorite, so I will enjoy reading through this. I did read most of page 2.

    Funny how our personal perceptions of a perfume can...

    Re: Diorella, newer compared to older

    Thank you.

    If it's 2003 though, then it hasn't been reformulated yet, right? The IFRA regulations didn't come into
    effect until around 2008, did they?

    Re: Recent versions of diorella

    I'd like to resurrect this post to ask a question about Diorella.

    I only just discovered it in January, and have 2 bottle of pre-reformulation from 2000 and 2003. I have been getting the...
