J’adore by Dior was a perfume of the 90’s. Ten years has passed and it still remains as one of the best floral-based feminine scents of all time. This fragrance is well-blended in every sense. The floral notes complement each other and the progression of the accords from the top to the middle and finally, to the base exemplifies how simplicity can turn into something elegant and beautiful.
The notes combine magnolia, melon, peach, pear, bergamot, mandarin orange, tuberose, plum, violet, orchid, freesia, jasmine, lily of the valley, rose, musk, vanilla, cedar and blackberry. It’s floral, fruity and not to mention fresh throughout. Women love wearing this fragrance regardless of the occasion and loyal fans of J’adore have sworn by its versatility for years.
Just like other successful fragrances, J’adore boasts a collection of flankers where flowers and fruits dominate in varied amounts.
J’adore Le Jasmin, like the name suggests, is jasmine and nothing else. Jasmine is the lone fragrance note in this version.
J’adore En Or was launched in 2004 to celebrate the 5th anniversary of J’adore. It’s floral-fruity with hints of ivy and black currant added.
J’adore L’absolu is another take on the floral-fruity theme but according to perfume fans who have road-tested the fragrance, this version is one: a heady floral and two: a tad musky in the dry down.
J’adore L’eau Cologne Florale is the most recent addition to the J’adore perfume collection. Since this is in cologne version, expect something fresher and lighter. The balanced composition of the notes is still present.
Flanker after flanker, there is one thing J’adore doesn’t alter and that’s the Greek amphora inspired bottle. The design of the flacon is a true classic and the sculpted outline is reminiscent of a woman’s body. It’s femininity inside out.
