Reviews of Diorella by Christian Dior

There are 64 reviews of Diorella by Christian Dior.

Roudnitska ripeness is in full effect in his classic Diorella, where the melon is at the precipice of swollen and soft, the peach has zero give when bitten into and so juicy it makes a mess all over you. Limes have been squeezed over salty flesh, and flower petals are in creases and folds, sweaty and plump, just before they recede and bear fruit.

Musky carnation and salacious spice steer Diorella from its fruity citrus opening to a heavenly woody, oily dry down hinting at indecency but still behaving. Its restraint from full on lechery is its brilliance. Are we clean or are we dirty? We are human, we are both, day in and day out, always striving for the former when perhaps leaning into the latter can liberate us now and then.

If Art Nouveau could be represented by a single scent,it would be Diorella,imo.i love chypre's.Diorella is no exception. Diorella is like a quirky pampered girl among the class of citrus chypre cologne (70's), standing aside alone, watching two popular classmates O de Lancome and Eau de Rochas dancing and laughing aloud in the party.a sophisticated white scarf on a spring day of a classy lady type of smell. Diorella's bouquet is skilfully blended by Roudnitska with texture, balance and form all taken into consideration to capture a realistic still life.Roudnitska is unique,he can do "magic" masterfully mixing citrus notes with fruity notes. preceded by female masterpiece as this one, Diorama or would parfum de Therese.Diorella is well known perfume among royal ladies.very natural and wonderfully earthy.

It is a minimalist perfume and it suggests the summery of a crystalline structure.on other hand, there is a deep sophistication of a silky kind that adds some warmth probably due to it's woody and aromatic segment.the first spritz brings out extremely astringent, bitter accords, citruses and then calms to a green scent.crisp jasmine and honeysuckle are tucked away patiently awaiting a light breeze to carry their glorious scent along with the citrus and peach, while the dry down brings out the oakmoss and grassy notes,and deepened with some crispy fresh vetiver, just enough to keep it from veering into the masculine territory,the austere character remains.it does bring something sparkling to mind,like a gin and tonic which is also bitter.it is definitely an original,as it is so far removed from the floral-fruity types selling today.like walking in from a hot summer afternoon into cool marble flooring and being sprayed with large, dewy rain,so clear.it is Diorella.

Fresh and lightly floral, citrus disappears too quickly for my liking, as the citrus is what is most appealing in Diorella.

Classically lovely, the jasmine in this stands out more on me than anything else. I find it quite strong so I can only wear a light wisp of it.

Not much else positive to add that hasn't already been stated. A buddy sent me a sample of some vintage juice. I got a nice blast of bright green and slightly sweet notes on top. The middle is rich with flowers and a touch of vetiver. I could really detect carnation. The base is mild with more rose than anything else. It is definitely "70's" in its style.
