People all over the world have no doubt seen the commercial with Charlize Theron. She looks stunning as she takes off her jewelry and claims that the only luxury and femininity she needs is J’Adore by Christian Dior. That’s a big claim, but this fragrance lives up to it.
About the scent
The lovely modern bottle evokes an artistic feel and a gold and silver combination that women will find interesting even before they begin a fragrance review for this great scent.
Of course, with a feminine scent, fruity notes are a great start. Melon, peach, pear, bergamot, and mandarin orange are all in this lovely opening to the perfume. That is a lot of fruit going on, and alone it would be a little overwhelming. Luckily, Christian Dior reminds you even in the beginning that this scent is feminine. Magnolia is added to the fruits for a slight floral note.
The reverse is done in the middle notes of this cologne. Plum is the only fruit you will find, and it is combined with a long list of flowers for a super floral scent. Violet, orchid, freesia, jasmine, and rose are all in this great middle tone.
There are no flowers in the base notes, though. Blackberry lightens the musk and cedar so they won’t be even the slightest bit masculine. And for just the right amount of sex appeal, the final note of this fragrance leaves you with vanilla – the perfect aphrodisiac.
The bottom line
J’Adore most definitely lives up to the commercial. It is really all you need for an accessory. A lot is going on with this great perfume, but it is all woman and all glamour. Fruits and flowers are everywhere, and they are finished off with vanilla.
