Little Miss Sunshine
Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Toilette
Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest. (quote from Christian Dior)
The winter of 2010 has grated on my nerves. I have been smothered by snow, dodging falling icicles that look like spears, and tossed around by arctic winds. I can not remember what the sun looks or feels like. I saw a chipmunk building an igloo. Seriously. The little guy has built an elaborate tunnel system in our backyard.
Now the snow is slowly turning to gray slush and the weather service predicts balmy 40 degree temperatures. Fellow Ohioans will wear shorts and leave the Northface parkas at home. I am wearing spring fragrances.
I have fallen for the charms of Miss Dior Eau de Toilette. The fragrance begins with a sparkling orange blossom and is quickly replaced by a very clear, strong diva-like jasmine note. This jasmine is the lead actress in this drydown. She refuses to let go of the spotlight and makes all the other notes supporting actors. Appearances are made by freesia, rose and a very quiet violet. I thought I detected some coconut. There was something milky, sweet and tropical in the mix. I went to the Sephora website and was startled to see Popcorn and Caramel as listed notes. I did not detect salt or anything achingly sweet. The drydown ends with a pretty spectacular patch note.
Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Toilette is sold exclusively at Sephora.
It retails for $62.00 for the 1.7 oz bottle and $82.00 for the 3.4 oz bottle.
