Maybe it’s because this sought-after scent is celebrating its 10th birthday this year or because our much-loved Charlize Theron is the gorgeous face of the ad campaigns, but J’adore has fast become a real fragrance classic.
The juice: Scent-wise, this one’s a standout floral – but rest easy, it’s not sickly sweet or overpowering in any way. Christian Dior himself was mad about all things floral, saying ‘Flowers are the most heavenly creation after women.’
So what’s in this bouquet? For the EDP (and we recommend you try this version) think a sultry combination of Jasmine Sambac, Rose Damascena and Ylang-Ylang with the fruitiness of plum and heady tuberose. Sandalwood and vetiver complete the mix.
The iconic bottle: The curvaceous bottle too has much allure; it is inspired by the Massai necklaces in the label’s Haute Couture collections.
