On September 1, 2021, Dior released a new commercial about the new version of the iconic Miss Dior fragrance. I used to love the Miss Dior fragrance, but after Dior changed from the 2006 version into the next version of the fragrance, I didn’t like it so much.
After the 2006 version, Dior began to turn Miss Dior towards a more woody and heavier scent. I know of many people who love the newer versions of Miss Dior, but I personally loved the lighter scent of the 2006 version. Because of this, I tried to search for a new fragrance that was light and floral to replace Miss Dior in my fragrance collection.
The first time I heard there would be a new version of Miss Dior in the commercial released on YouTube.
After seeing it, I felt indifferent about the new fragrance. I didn’t like the other versions of the fragrance, so I figured I wouldn’t like this version. When I did some research on the new fragrance’s notes, I became more curious about the scent.
The description for the 2021 Miss Dior Eau de Parfum on Dior’s website is as follows…
Miss Dior Eau de Parfum reinvents itself with a new scent.
In 1947, Miss Dior was born out of a wild impetus where the pressing desire to re-enchant women’s lives and open up their eyes to the sparkling colors of love again was felt. Following a bleak period, this scent was synonymous with renewed happiness, poetry, and harmony for Christian Dior at that time. Miss Dior intrigues, excites and invites us to marvel at love and all the beauty in the world.
Echoing its inspiring character, the new Miss Dior fragrance is like an olfactory “millefiori”. Centifolia Rose, with its honeyed and peppery notes, reigns over a delectably creamy velvet heart. It is embroidered with fresh Lily-of-the-Valley notes, an apricot-tinged Peony accord, and powdery Iris notes. Miss Dior is thus built around an elegant, striking bouquet––like a “millefiori” that seems to carry countless flowers in endless colors. At the base, slight notes of tender wood envelop the composition.
The new Miss Dior Eau de Parfum now boasts a vibrant, pointillist couture, poignard fabric bow, with a truly unique assortment of florals. As such, a few centimeters of pure luxury is tied around the bottle’s neck. Beneath the bottle, the emblematic Miss Dior houndstooth motif is engraved in the glass.
The scent, which has it’s signature rose in it, also has floral notes of Lilly of the Valley, Peony, and Iris. I love how floral heavy it is, but I still am worried about about the base notes, which is wood. Wood is often times paired with some type of musk, so I’m worried the scent will aggravate my allergies to the point I won’t like it. Still, this fragrance is adverstised as having “floral and fresh notes”, so it peaks my interest enough to find it and test it in store. I hope it will smell good and won’t aggravate my allergies!
