    Default Maison Christian Dior Collection

    Dior's Collection Privee has changed name to 'Maison Christian Dior Collection' It seems that most of them has been reformulated. Some has been discontinued, and many new has been added.
    Has someone tried the new 2018 version of Fève Delicieuse? I hope it's more powerful than the former.

    Still anxiously awaiting for the new ones to reach US shores.

    Totally unsubstantiated, but I read somewhere recently (on here maybe?) that one of the reasons for the reform was to make the range more appealing to far Eastern tastes - i.e. more ephemeral / less bold, in the vein of the Hermessence range. If this is true, I doubt any of them will be getting stronger.

    A friend of mine also told me this news except that the only one -- New Look 1947 faced a structural change, after she came back from a boutique that has all the new releases.

    I am surprised to hear someone thing Feve Delicieuse being not strong enough.

    The reformulation bit is ridiculous. No way in hell Dior would arbitrarily change a dozen existing and actively distributed compositions for the reorganized line.

    Oh, yes they will. If you take a look at Fragrantica, both the "old" and new fragrances is there, and you can see that the notes has changed

    Notes are marketing, so I don't think they are an indication. Of course, brands can and do reformulate all the time, so everything is possible. I've only smelled Dior Ispahan old and new and it seemed the same. It is true that most of the new creations are light florals, perhaps, as you say, for the Asian market.

    Fully agree. Notes are marketing.

    I've seen the new one is bottles as small as 40ml, though I don't know if it was a limited thing.

    It was mentioned that there are smaller bottles coming; I forget which sizes.

    Well, Fragrantica seems to sometimes pick the notes arbitrarily, and they even change them over time in some cases.
    They seem to go for a visually appealing and easily comprehended site, but not with a lot of accuracy when it comes to the actual fragrances.
    I have seen plenty of fragrances with wrong info on perfumers and note lists that did not make any sense.
    I only go to Fragrantica for its ease of use, I go to Basenotes for the facts.

    Unfortunately, they sell 40 ml only in sets 3×40.

    The same case as for Hermes. Could be 3 different or 3 the same.

    In Rome, they were selling them singularly in November. As said, I don't know if it was a one time thing or what.
