Alternative to Dior Addict Eau fraîche?
When the scent was newly released, a salesgirl gave me a sample scent.
The bottle is quite playful in my opinion and so I thought that I would be struck by a flowery scent, as so often.
Of course not! It is very sweet but more like fully ripe fruit. At first I thought it smells a bit like Dior Addict Eau fraiche, but much more intense and sweet.
My husband loves him. He's too sweet for me some days.
But I just bought a second bottle :-)

Testing perfumes during the Corona era in the USA: Mon Paris by YSL
Mon Paris is one of the fragrances I really wanted to test, because a lovely perfume company was so enthusiastic about it. Said perfume will know that I mean her when she reads this ;) In the department store I had already smelled it on the paper strip - just before the current pandemic - and I liked it. But it is well known that scents develop on the skin very differently than on paper and so I knew that I had to test this scent on my skin. But how, where here in the USA at Sephora at the moment scents are only presented on paper strips by staff - for safety reasons? As fate would have it, Sephora Online had a special offer this month: for purchases of $35 or more, a miniature of YSL Mon Paris or Givenchy Irrésistible was added for free. So I didn't hesitate for long and ordered the really phenomenal Forever Skin Correct Concealer from Dior, of which I had tested a miniature, which was then added to a purchase at Sephora, where I had the chance to see the... Yes ok, it could be that I've been shopping too much online lately and I don't mean food. No, make-up, perfume, shoes...What else can you do where thanks to Corona you sit at home all day long and can only go out for groceries or a walk...I guess I could get some cheaper hobbies...reading for example...But I have to read all the time in my studies. Mountains. Hundreds of pages a week. So I don't really feel like reading in my spare time anymore. And make-up and perfume are a fine thing...but I digress. So to the mentioned Dior concealer there was a sweet 7,5ml miniature of Mon Paris with a little bow
The miniature looks basically like the original bottle, only in a small size, complete with a cute little bow. I must say I really like the bottle. It looks girlish and thanks to the black color of the bow, it looks grown-up and simply elegant and valuable. The miniature has no spray head. So carefully dab some of the fragrance on the arm and wait a little while...

At the beginning a great mixture of sugared strawberries with raspberries welcomes you. Despite the sweetness it smells somehow refreshing, almost sparkling like champagne. I find this top note very youthful and at the same time elegant, and as the Parisians would say, très chic. One literally has a bowl of sugared strawberries and raspberries in front of one's eyes. Beautiful in a crystal glass bowl with whipped cream, just like Grandma's (only that the Mon Paris doesn't smell of whipped cream, of course). Catwalk. Lightning storm. Prêt-à-porter fashion show and haute couture presented by long-legged models. Paris...But unfortunately it doesn't last long. After about 10 minutes, the floral notes of the perfume come to the fore. I smell mainly Jasmine Sambac with peony in a supporting role. And so the perfume becomes even sweeter, if that's at all possible, and yes, unfortunately also heavier, sultry and stuffy. At this stage, Mon Paris reminds me of Black Opium. Basically, they're very different scents, but both are dominated by this heavy, sticky jasmine sweetness. And unfortunately I don't like the smell of black opium. After the great start I am a bit disappointed. Because the fragrance stays like that for the most part and doesn't develop further. It remains sugary, sultry, almost penetrating, and that for several hours. The catwalk has disappeared. I now see a woman in front of me who is too thin, has too long hair, has been in the solarium too long and wears too much make-up, with a slightly too ample bust. Everything screams "artificial". Sorry, dear perfuma, that's my association with it. I hope I'm not hurting your feelings with this description. Paris? Away! It's a shame, really, after the authentic start. Even the base isn't that convincing. In the drydown, sweet ambroxan and cotton candy musk are battling the turgid jasmine. Somehow it smells synthetic. But, you have to give it credit, the durability and sillage at Mon Paris are really very strong and very well developed. If the fragrance would smell all the time like it did in the opening with the wonderful top note, I would buy it immediately. But that way we won't become great friends. In the final analysis, Jasmine Sambac spoils the scent for me. An extremely intense white-flowered note, which makes the fragrance seem somehow artificial, like a false smile.

So, dear Parfuma, please don't be angry with me, but unfortunately Mon Paris could not convince me. Instead, a 100ml bottle of Light Blue Intense by Dolce & Gabbana, which will always remind me of the wonderful time with my sweetheart this summer, and Green Tea Cucumber by Elizabeth Arden, whose fragrances sounded promising, will soon be moving in with me. How I am already looking forward to the delivery! And by the way, maybe you can recommend me a hobby that costs less money... :D

I'm confused
When Mon Paris came out, I was thrilled. I tested it more times and then I hit it. Normally I'm not a fan of fruity scents, but he had me convinced. For weeks I wore it with pride, but somehow it was never my first choice. He is sweet, but I never found him heavy. It was clearly noticeable and I was often asked about it, but something didn't fit me.

I think I was a little bit too much of everything. Either fruity, floral or citrus. Musk or patchouli base... everything is here somehow and stress me and my nose... unfortunately he had to move out again. On younger girls I could imagine him better.

For ladies who like it romantic and feminine
I somehow can't understand the bad reviews here on this fragrance! I read here very often that it should be a synthetic scent.... But I disagree completely! I know that everyone has a different taste when it comes to fragrances but there are still some people who like to exaggerate when it comes to evaluating a fragrance... Well, now I'll write my opinion here about this, perfume:) I got to know the scent through a sample of perfume (I bought it a month later:))
I tested the scent together with my mother because we both have a very similar scent taste when it comes to perfume:) I asked myself here on Parfumo as the first what the fragrance pyramid has to offer so beautiful. The fruity notes I like very much except that there should be two different notes of jasmine in the fragrance... I find Jasmin very beautiful and seductive in other people, but on my skin this note is unfortunately not always as beautiful and seductive as in others...:( No matter I just wanted to know how the scent is and smells:))))

I sprayed it on my wrist and was so beautifully feminine and just pleasantly sweet from the raspberry note as if enchanted*-* I think you can easily compare the raspberry note with the new Tresor fragrance from Lancome, which also smells sweet and sugary from the fragrance:) The rose gave a light fresh and a light creamy note to the fragrance... Jasmim was thank God not so strongly present on my skin which I found more pleasant. The jasmine note gave the fragrance a beautiful feminine radiance as well as a welcome warmth almost already a beautiful and sensual embrace:))) Musk was with me now not to smell out much more and indeed strongest, the raspberry and strawberry note. I've also often heard that it's said to be similar to black opium... Honestly I see 0 similarity between the two! Black Opium is very vanilla and gourmandig as well as very strong and... Mon Paris, on the other hand, is berry and light (depending on dosage). What I would like to stress is the H+S is almost unbeatable with this fragrance! I smell because all day long on my clothes also on the skin keeps the very good! I think the bottle is just soooo sweet and feminine:)))))))

So we come to the end who loves raspberry scents that are NOT artificial as well as looking for something feminine is right here! I think as a woman you can't do anything wrong with this one, on the contrary I've already received some compliments for the scent:) Also, in my opinion, it simply smells beautiful, youthful and romantic;)))) I'm always in a good mood when I'm wearing the scent because it's a small variation who is just looking for something light that's not too sweet but also not too fresh. Also you can wear it all year round as I think:)

Love is blindness
After a long time a comment to a pure ladies scent from me again. A fragrance I can highly recommend, especially for ladies with a preference for the very feminine designer fragrances.
In 2016 I became aware of this fragrance through this beautiful commercial. For me, it's the best fragrance I've ever seen. Most of them are very dull and boring, but it's just great. Especially through the Love is blindness cover by Lee-La Baum. The song was never officially released, but it is very gripping, melancholic, magical and just great. Plus a couple who experience breathtaking moments in Paris. Totally successful. This advertising makes you very curious about the fragrance.

Can this fragrance compete with advertising? In my opinion, yes. Although the melancholic magic from the advertisement is not necessarily there, for me it's an attractive women's scent that starts extremely fruity, then changes into the flowery part and finally fades away gently and sensually. I love to smell ladies. I like this fragrance type, which reminds me slightly of LVEB by Lancome.
The bottle is mega-sweet and clichéd feminine. I like it. Beautiful bows, great glass and well processed.

The fragrance begins extremely fruity. It doesn't smell of just one fruit, but of a rather indefinable fruity note that I like. The pyramid contains strawberry and raspberry. Maybe it has a berry touch, but it also reminds me slightly of apricot. Very tasty and seductive. The opening is rather playful-fruity and definitely good for youngsters.
Flowery notes are added quickly. Especially a nice jasmine note. My favorite note in women's fragrances. Jasmine in my opinion has so much sex appeal and one of the most feminine notes. Also here super in scene set in station wagon with beautiful fruits.
Later it fades away gently and sensually. Especially with patchouli and soft musk. All in all for me a harmonious composition without disturbing factors. Very sexy and especially feminine!
Some people complain about performance here, but I don't. Shelf life is approx. 10 hours, Sillage 1A over many hours. Great! For an EDP absolutely super in shot. Intense.

Suitable for feminine ladies and girls. Fits great with a sexy outfit, but also with jeans and sneakers. This fragrance is also suitable for parties. All in all a fragrance that ladies would like to smell and has a concentrated load of sex appeal. Rather less suitable for wallflowers.

The younger face of the "Ville lumière"
when I tested it, and a cloud of fruity-flowery notes involved me . In particular I smelled the raspberry notes and I found them very gourmand , maybe a little girly, but pleasant. The heart and base notes arrived later and on my skin remained a good mix , well balanced. This fragrance, in its nice bottle , represents the younger and funnier face of Paris , lighter, alternative and more modern , but not less interesting
