Thread: Midnight Charm - Dior
Went into Neiman's today to try the new JM Blue Agave & Cacao (meh) and found this. I already had 4 frags on so didn't put it on, but the bottle is the cutest thing I've ever seen! A heavy round ball, the perfect size for your palm, covered in silver with random polka dot cut-outs revealing purple crystal. Or maybe the glass is clear and the juice is purple. At any rate, for the first time I could envision buying perfume just for the flacon. I'm going back to spray it on next week.
Blue Agave & Cacao - Lots of chocolate in the top note which doesn't appeal to me. The drydown is nice and it did seem to have more staying power than the usual JM scents. I can still smell it on my skin 8 hours later.
Pomegranate Noir - Second try for this one, and I put the cream on this time. I wish the crisp top note of pomegranate stuck around longer. Nice woods in the dry down, slightly sharper than the drydown for...
Mandragore (Annick Goutal) - Wow! Yum!!! Where has this been all my life? Citrus, ginger and wonderful woods in the drydown. Actually this might layer nicely with the Pom Noir. Initial sillage was great and I did receive a compliment on it. Unfortunately it was gone 4 hours later.
If only the Mandragore came in the silver polka dot ball.
If you like the Midnight Charm bottle and appreciate the Blue Agava by JM, you will love Dior's Dolce Vita. Actually the Midnight Charm bottle is a silvered Dolce Vita bottle. Further more the Blue Agava juice shares some similarities with the Dolce Vita fragrance IMHO, only without the cacao topnote and a slightly less woody base.
TRY DOLCE VITA !
