Thread: Eau Fraiche - recent purchase
MY STEALTHY FREEDOM.
One of my great loves. Looks like you got a good, pre-reformulation splash bottle - nice nice!
Dior's Eau Fraiche is a great example of how "fresh" fragrances were perceived in the recent past. It is indeed refreshing, with its citrus and leafy notes. But the oakmoss.....the missing element in all of today's "fresh and light" frags. Oakmoss is the green dagger sheathed in leather, cutting its stripe through Eau Fraiche
I always got comments about how sexy this fragrance is. That's when I was wearing the vintage version, the one you scored. I really, really doubt that response would be forthcoming if wearing the current iteration of Dior Eau Fraiche. It's been sanitized beyond belief.
Nice bottle! Eau Fraiche is an interesting one, somewhere on a scale between Eau Sauvage and Diorella - fresh without being clean, exactly. Hope you're enjoying it.
Thanks all for your kind words.
Yes, to me it is a dirty citrus. I've not encountered anything like this before, so my nose is still "acclimatising".
