In fact I'm a little disapointed in Dior for selling it under the same name. Lately I’ve found myself drawn to lighter florals and spring, but J’Adore smells too much like shampoo or nice soap for my taste (which is to say, it smells precisely like shampoo or nice soap). Review for current formula: A bright, crisp pear with underlying citrus. It is a nice fresh, clean fragrance without being soapy and with a very classy feel to it BUT is it worth the price tag? I recently was fortunate enough to sample J'dore Extrait de Parfum and J'adore Touch de Parfum, which are apparently closer to the original formulation and I can certainly understand why lovers of the original would be highly dissapointed in the current formulation, they are worlds apart. It's very pretty and acceptable in any social situation.
To the excitement of some fans, Kinney was spotted in the audience of her Chicago show last week and, according to one fan's tweet, later went backstage. Tried it today,because i said to myself "What's the fuss about it? it's like everyone is invited to the party of the year and im not. J'adore,i don't adore you,but i can say i kinda like you. The magnolia really stands out to me and it comes across as quite sharp to my nose, bringing me to the brink of a headache; I’m starting to think magnolia is probably a no-go note for me. I’ll give this to my mom, she enjoys soapy florals.I probably won't impress people with my originality ;-) or reveal much of myself when wearing it, but it will make me feel confident and at ease. Whenever I’m out shopping I keep going back to the Dior counter for a spritz of this. All I got was the detergent kind of harsh white flowers, literally made my nose hurt everytime I smell it and want to scrub it off immediately. I picked out this perfume for my mom and it smells amazing on her! I sprayed it before I went to bed at 11 pm, and could smell it the next morning at 8 am. this reminds me of trophy wives and women who have so much botox they can't move their face. EDP 2016 I sprayed this on my wrist, let alcohol evaporate and let my man smell it.
