A year ago I would have answered Diorella, but in that time I've come around to the ample curvaceous charms of Diorama extrait. The answer would have been different if you had included Dior-Dior.

And I do think you erred in also omitting Miss Dior, which is many vintage hounds' favorite old Dior of all time.

Hard to choose... In the end I went with diorissimo. Vintage parfum is just magical, a run through a flower field in the spring. But Diorella is also a masterpiece. Unfortunately I have not smelled good vintage Diorama, so I cannot say. Plus, I understand Diorama has shifted a lot over time.

It goes without saying, the current versions of the above are simply not up to par. The other two seem to have been changed so much that I may even be inclined to prefer Diorama...

Oh yes, Miss Dior would've got my vote all day long. :smiley:

I voted Diorissimo although it's not one I'm in the mood for often despite or maybe because of it's loveliness.

Out of these three, I prefer Diorella. However, I'm with several of these folks ^^^ in that (1) I've never had the pleasure of smelling Diorama (in any form--yet), and (2) if vintage Miss Dior had been included, I would have chosen it. I enjoy my rare outings with Diorissimo, but I find it to be very specific, whereas Diorella is as comfortable as a pair of old jeans and can go anywhere, anytime.

I only know Miss Dior and Diorissimo, so I do not feel qualified to vote. Sorry. Of the two I do know, I am partial to Miss Dior.

Thanks everyone for your posts.
I deliberately did not include Miss Dior because of it's status and fame, although I know that Diorissimo is also well known, probably as one of the textbook "Lily-of-the-Valley" perfumes.
I nearly included Dioressence and would be curious to know your views on this one ?

I know the three in the poll. After some thought, I voted Diorella. I also like the other two, especially Diorama.

I have vintage Dioressence EdT. It is definitely a fragrance of its time---a classic chypre and an oak moss bomb.

This was a tough one. I've never smelled Diorama, so I was choosing between Diorissimo and Diorella, both of which are potentially desert island scents for me.

I had to go with Diorissimo, with a caveat... I am weary of vintage Diorissimo because I have a 60s bottle that I think the top notes (and possibly base notes) have turned - they're sharp and almost metallic. I have read that this is a common thing for vintage Diorissimo - the top notes are unstable. My 80s/90s version is much smoother and I could happily wear it every day if I didn't have cabinet full of other scents....including vintage Diorella. :)

Roudniska is unique,he can do magic masterfully mixing citrua notes with floral notes by female masterpiece as Diorella,Diorissima.
I love both of them as they are natural simplicity but totally i prefer Diorissimo.

Best Regards.
