Ode to love!
Miss Dior - 1950’s edt splash reviewed.

Miss Dior was born shortly after WW2, in a moment of devastation, shortages and despair. While the world was slowly picking itself up, Christian Dior launched the famous New Look Collection in a move of joyous optimism, to allow women to feel beautiful, strong, desired and independent. Miss Dior was the perfect first fragrance, an accessory more easily obtained than the more expensive haute couture. A fragrance full of joy, freshness, joie de vivre.

The original incarnation is a beautifully elegant floral chypre, redolent of galbanum, aldehydes, white flowers, oakmoss and hidden animalic notes that lend a gorgeous parfum fourrure feel.
The opening absolutely sings. Overcast dove grey skies, but not melancholic. Early spring. Fizzy aldehydes, galbanum, styrallyl acetate for the Gardenia rendition. A young fresh feel for all women, all ages. The scent of optimism.
The heart starts to get a little darker. Among the flowers, rose, good luck lily of The Valley, Iris, carnation...voluptuous and spicy, with the discreet powderiness of Iris, to cast a veil of sensual femininity. At once, it smells expensive, debutant but mature; while the flowers and green notes denote elegance and good taste, a perfect first perfume for a young lady, there are hidden secrets ahead, making it perfect for a woman that is fierce willed and strong. Leather, buttery sandalwood, civet, most likely ambergris, costus root, nitromusks...notes that don’t scream but instead envelop the fragrance in a bouquet of luxury and naughtiness; silk underwear under a perfectly tailored suit. The desire to be loved, longed for, without being vulgar. The warmth that emanates from the skin is glorious. Hard to pinpoint notes, it simply sings. A masterpiece.

Under the guidance of Christian, Paul Vacher and Jean Carles created one of the most beautiful fragrances of the era, and one of the most memorable masterpieces of the last century. As if the green floralcy of Ma Griffe and the sexual potency of Tabu had a baby, Miss Dior had the pedigree of the house that saw her to life.
Elegant, sensual, powerful. The original has a wonderful tenacity on skin, and a potent sillage that becomes more languid as the day progresses. Easily worn by men, Miss Dior is simply put, an ode to joy and love and life.

Not to be confused with anything bearing the name today; Miss Dior remained integral up until the late 80’s/early 90’s. Ages well, if you find intact bottles on eBay, they are a good investment. What is currently sold by that name is nothing but a sad joke.

Miss Dior: The vintage original
Miss Dior is spectacular, it's magical, it's timeless....it is absolute fragrance perfection. For me at least. It is the epitome of all that I love about fragrance.

There is something about it that feels so well thought out, so perfected, and it doesn't even matter what vintage form you get it in. You could choose one blind folded and it's gonna be good. I have multiple forms from different time periods and I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite. I have EDT, EDP, cologne and extrait. Most of my Miss Dior is vintage but I also have Originale EDT which is very well done and smells like "Miss Dior" and I also have the Originale extrait, which is possibly the best current powdery green chypre on earth and it doesn't even have oakmoss. It smells vintage and like true Miss Dior only astonishingly potent. I have the vintage parfum also and I'm telling you, the new extrait is phenomenal. That said, there is something about the vintage cologne that is truly special. There is a softness to it yet a touch of masculinity and the fighting yin and yang of the two leaves me nearly speechless with delight.

I hate to go on and on and hype this like it's the perfume version of the Hope Diamond but it sort of is. If you like old school style, if you like powder, if you like chypre, if you like PERFUME period and haven't tried this yet it is almost an abomination.

I was lucky to found a 10 ml miniature of this vintage....first I thought it had turned, so strong, but after 30 minutes a very beautiful smell on my skin...gonna hunt for this vintage. This is good juice
