Reviews of Miss Dior Chérie (original)

Miss Dior Cherie opens with a slightly soapy fruity scent, featuring pineapple, cherries, and a lot of strawberries. To me, it's essentially a strawberry fragrance. For the first 4 hours, the strawberries smell boozy and volatile, not the fresh juicy ones that every young girls can taste, but more like cocktail that requires a certain age to be able to drink.

I was not able to pick caramel or popcorn note distinctively. But I assume that they contributed in the strawberry jam feeling after about 6 hours of wearing. The flowers are difficult to perceive on me. The patchouli is not very evident either, but it certainly helps adding depth to the playful strawberry.

The longevity is excellent. After 12 hours I can still the amber base. The sillage is good in the first 4 or 5 hours then stays close to skin until the end. Bright, playful and full of delight, it definitely worths a try. But beware, it's quite sweet though, plus the volatile texture, you may not want to overapply.

I wore the original Miss Dior in the 1980s. It was very delicate and feminine with fresh green and floral notes and a smidgen of leather. Miss Dior Cherie smells like a candy shoppe--very sickly sweet and sticky smelling. Personally, I do not want to smell like a candy shoppe, but for those who do, Cherie will give you what you want.

Dior has reformulated Miss Dior yet again. This time they have called it Miss Dior Le Parfum, and I must say I like it so much better. The new formulation is a sophisticated, sexy, womanly scent with wonderful rose and amber notes. The Le Parfum formulation is nothing like the original however. Le Parfum cannot be described as delicate, but it is still very nice, very long lasting with projection of easily three to five feet and a nice sillage.

Ratings for Cherie are as follows.

Fragrance: 4/10
Sillage: 6/10
Projection: 6/10
Longevity: 6/10

I'm wearing this lovely perfume on the first day of 2016 because I'm a firm believer in the old adage of Start the way you want to go on...and I want this year to be happy, cheerful, optimistic and fun. Like Miss Dior Cherie. Not sure why so many think this scent is only for teenagers. Just because you're over 30 doesn't mean you must constantly be draped in oakmoss. Sometimes I want to smell dark and mysterious, sure, but other times I want to smell like strawberries and popcorn. If you like a perfume wear it. And have a happy New Year!

A fruity-floral melange, similar to Angel, but without the latter's strength and powerhouse sillage.

As Tania Sanchez notes in her four star review, its essential three note center of strawberry-rose-patchouli is better balanced and more nuanced than the Mugler classic, Angel for the teen-aged girl, who wants to have fun with her perfume, not announce her presence blocks away.

A perfect gift for that 14-18 year-old, who wants to smell trendy like her girlfriends, but knows the value of being able to flash a "Dior" bottle at sleepovers.

For that audience and that genre, a subtle sweet concoction.

The leitmotif triad of mandarin, strawberry and jasmine - citrus-fruity-floral - makes for a winning combination that is hard to find elsewhere in such a fashion. The base adds a nice sweetish caramel touch that is counterbalanced by the restrained tartness of patchouli.

Overall nice and well executed. I get moderate sillage with good projection and five hours of longevity. 3/5
