    Oh wow. This sounds like it has potential. I just texted my SA about it. I wonder if I'll run into it while I'm traveling next month.

    Sounds great, nice clean juice color, hopefully a very wearable gourmand. I'm sure I'll sample it once available

    This is not available on Dior’s French website yet.

    Diorama from the line Les creations de Monsieur Dior is still on the website. I hope they don’t discontinue it as I am quite found of it.

    Diorama is an amazing perfume. Will be a shame if discontinued.

    Even though the combo of rum/cocoa/cardamom sounds appealing, I despair of what Dior is doing to its traditional pillars.

    I don't like most vanilla notes. I am not interested. Sad. I was excited for tobacco, then it ends up being sweety, (though I'll try it at some point), then followed up with a vanilla sweety. Seems beneath them, but maybe I underestimated the height of their bottom. Ultimately there will probably be a lot of people who like this, it is just not a release aimed for me. I hope it is done well, as I'm a Dior guy.
    I smell.

    My SA at Saks got a preview of Vanilla Diorama this weekend. She wanted to get me a sample, but they didn't have any; however, she was able to spray some on a card for me. From what I can tell, Vanilla Diorama is pretty similar to Feve Delicieuse, except without the spiciness of Feve Delicieuse and with more of a powdery, musky base. Upon my first whiff of the card, it seemed very gourmand. I got sort of the effect of caramel.

    I'll definitely try this on skin when I get the chance, but so far, I think Feve Delicieuse is better and more interesting.

    She also said they were expecting Vanilla Diorama in store in August and then Tobacolor in September.

    From the notes listed, I'm curious to know if there's some similarities to scents like Chanel Coromandel or Carner Barcelona D600. I'm speculating on notes.

    It doesn't remind me of either, though it's been a while since I've gotten a nose on D600.

    Okay, so my SA at Saks let me know that they received the Vanilla Diorama tester in, so I went in to check it out and grab a sample that she had for me.

    This is better on skin than on paper, and there is definitely a powder-y, muskiness to it, though musk is not listed as a note. There are hints of Mitzah and Feve Delicieuse at times. It's really not as sweet as I was expecting based on the notes.

    I definitely like it, though I'm not sure how much given the overlap that exists with other Diors that i already own.

    She said they were taking pre-orders for it and are expecting a shipment by the end of next week. Tobacolor will follow maybe a month later, so I think I'm gonna wait to see how I like that one in comparison.

    It's definitely nice. It reminded me at times of a less spicy version of Musc Ravageur.

    My bottle is on the way. Ordered it yesterday from Saks (called in). They were running a buy more save more sale so it was $50 off. I haven't had a chance to smell it but I like what I've heard.
