I think most people close to me are aware of the fact that Dior is my favourite brand on earth when it comes to beauty. I love everything about them and everything from them. From foundation to blushes, I just love it all. One thing I didn’t have in my collection just yet was a Dior perfume. I’ve always wanted one but I never really ended up getting one. Until a while ago when I finally purchased the Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Eau de Perfume. It was a tough decision deciding which one of the Miss Dior’s to get, but I think I made the right decision. Anyway, let’s get into the review shall we? If you’re interested in reading everything there is to know about the Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Perfume you just have to keep on reading!
First things first: the packaging. Back in the day when I was much, much younger and I never thought I’d ever get a perfume like this, I already loved the look of the Miss Dior packagings. I mean look at it. Isn’t this the cutest bottle of perfume you have ever seen. You know what I love about it, I love how they combined cute with classy. Because lots of cute packagings don’t necessarily look very classy or luxurious, but this one does. While still being cute at the same time!
I can’t exactly pinpoint how they managed to create that combination, but what I can tell you is that the little bow around the lid does add a lot of cuteness to the mix. I usually think that bows can create a cheap look on packagings, but in this case it’s done right and I really love the look of it. I also really like that the liquid is pink because well, I love pink. The thing that makes this bottle a classy one for me is probably the shape as well as the little label on the front. How pretty is that? I also love how the box of the perfume is sealed with a little ‘CD’ sticker. It’s such a small detail but I just like that about it.
Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Eau de Perfume – €70,50 (30 ml)
The Miss Dior perfumes have been around for quite some time now and they have always been pretty well-known. At least, I’ve known about them for years and it actually was one of the first luxurious perfumes I ever knew about. Throughout the years Dior has released several versions of their famous Miss Dior perfume, one of which is the Absolutely Blooming perfume.
For me it was quite difficult to make a decision between the different versions because all smell really good but in a different way and I just didn’t know what to choose. In the end I decided to go for Absolutely Blooming because that seemed like a very unique scent to me and, as some of you probably already know, I love floral scents. So the word ‘blooming’ really spoke to me.
Of course there’s also the Blooming Bouquet version, which is also a floral scent and has floral aspects in its name, and I love the scent of that too, but I just had to make a choice. In all honesty I’m pretty sure that someday both Blooming Bouquet and the regular version will be part of my collection. But for now I’m happy with Absolutely Blooming.
Enough about my decision, let’s start talking about the scent itself. Dior describes this as a lively and colourful scent. They say that Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is an irresistible and endlessly indulgent floral treat. The delicious notes of sour red berries are embroidered over an accord of fresh peonies. Exalted by a sublime duo of Grasse and Damascus roses, this infinite blooming of fresh flowers is strengthened by a white musk base. A positive, smiling harmony for a mischievous, compelling Miss Dior.
I have to admit that I didn’t understand half of the claims at first because Dior uses very ‘luxurious’ words in their description, but after translating some of the words and looking up some of the other words I think I have a pretty clear vision of what Dior is trying to tell us here.
So, what Dior is saying is that this is a very floral perfume. It has the scent of peonies in it, sour red berries, Grasse and Damascus roses, which are very pretty pink roses that actually look a bit like peonies. The floral scent is boosted by the white musk base. White musk is known for adding a clean, musky notes into the mix, which is why this is a great base for a perfume like this. The musk in this perfume adds a bit of warmth to an otherwise very fresh smelling scent, and I really like that about it.
Overall I would describe this scent as a fresh but warm floral scent. Normally floral scents tend to be rather fresh, but thanks to the musk base in this perfume it’s actually a bit warmer than your usual floral scent. I also think it’s a very luxurious smelling perfume. The smell really tells you that this isn’t some cheap perfume that you’re wearing. I personally really like that. Whenever I do splurge on a perfume I do want to be able to tell that it’s a more luxurious product.
On the other hand the luxury in this perfume does make it a more mature scent. With that I don’t mean mature as in ‘old’ or for the elderly, I mean mature as in for adult. It’s not a perfume I would have worn back when I was 15. It’s not really a great fit for that age category. Of course girls (or boys) from that age are allowed to wear this and they can rock it, but generally speaking I do think this is more of a mature scent.
When it comes to the quality of this perfume I am just stunned. Because it’s an Eau de Perfume I could’ve expected it to be pretty strong, but my lord. This perfume is definitely what you call a strong perfume. I definitely don’t spray on more than just one spritz of this and that’s more then enough for the rest of the day. Even for the day after if you spray it on your clothing. Because it’s not just a very strong scent but also a very longlasting one. I personally really appreciate that, but if you’re sensitive to getting headaches from strong perfumes you might want to test this one out for a day before you decide to purchase it!
Overall I think that the Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Perfume is, indeed, an amazing scent. It’s definitely a scent for more mature women (so not really a kid-teenager scent) and I think it’s a very luxurious scent as well. It just smells like luxurious flowers to me and I personally love it. The quality of this perfume is just out of this world and therefore I really think that this is an amazing perfume and definitely one I would recommend if you’re on the hunt for a gorgeous, floral and luxury scent.
That’s everything for today! I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and be sure to let me know what you think of the Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming perfume and if you have any experience with the Miss Dior perfumes at all!
