About Rouge Trafalgar

The company says:

Rouge Trafalgar is a perfume characterized by a seductive accord of mouth-watering and delicate red fruit, in which I’ve also slipped unexpected, striking notes such as Blackcurrant and Grapefruit. An exhilarating scent like the famous Dior Red, an iconic Christian Dior colour. A classic that has lost none of its impact.

Reviews of Rouge Trafalgar

I just had a chance to experience Rouge Trafalgar, and I liked it, but I couldn't tell it was from the exclusive line because it smells so mass market. It smells like typical feminine Dior DNA, which I like, mixed with elements of Flowerbomb and maybe even some Polo Red.

Rouge Trafalgar is one of the latest releases from the Maison Christian Dior line, from early 2020, a mostly-fruity fragrance thatís quite pleasant. The notes consist of strawberry, raspberry, mandarin orange, cherry, grapefruit, blackcurrant, patchouli, and musk. It has a bit of a light, fresh, fruity champagne / wine cooler / seltzer / spritzer type of vibe to it. Thereís something bright and effervescent to it that I have a difficult time quantifying, since itís not aldehydic, but present, in a limited way, in the background.

Thereís certainly sense in which Rouge Trafalgar is not at all groundbreaking, but I quite enjoy this blend. Itís well-executed, a really pleasant, invigorating fruity mix that really doesnít involve much else apart from patchouli and musk, which makes it all the more remarkable that itís not weighed down by sweetness. Rather, itís light and fresh, feeling instantly appropriate for the current spring season, and probably fine year-round, even on a hot summer day, since itís not too dense or syrupy sweet.

Something that Sebastian Jara noted on his YouTube video in February is Rouge Trafalgarís similarity to Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme, and I agree, with the same observation the blackberry prominence of the Gucci distinguishes it from the fruity mix of the Dior. Moreover, Rouge Trafalgar is a little more fruit-intensive overall, lacking the rose of the Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme. Both are fun fragrances, with the Gucci a bit cheaper when sold on the grey market, especially. I do owe them a proper side-by-side, however

Like the rest of the Maison Christian Dior line, Rouge Trafalgar is priced at $450/$320/$220 for 450/250/125ml and only sold online (for US customers) at the Dior website. My opinion remains that as a higher-end line, Diorís Maison Christian Dior (formerly Privee) is very reasonably priced, under $2/ml at the smallest bottle size. Rouge Trafalgar in particular performs reasonably well, too, albeit not outstandingly, but still noticeably better than designer freshies.

Overall, I think Rouge Trafalgar is great, similarities to Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme and non-innovation notwithstanding.
