Hello Ladies. Just a quick Sample Sunday post - today I tried J'adore perfume from Christian Dior. I got this sample in a giveaway I won from Emma at Computergirl's Musing's (thanks again)!
I'd not tried this perfume before, so I was eager to test it out. The blurb says it is the absolute femininity, with a sparkling, fruity, floral bouquet. I tend to agree with the blurb - it's a fruity smell, and I tend to like that type of scent. It wasn't as fresh smelling as some perfumes, and there is a sweetness that comes through as the scent develops during the day. It's not too full-on a sweetness, and there are some more heady, musky notes that come through, which I really like. I'm not really into sweet perfumes, so for me, this is a good balance.
I'm not sure about the absolute femininity claim. I've been wearing it to clean out my car, help my boyfriend do some drilling, cook a roast, do the dishes and do my ironing. Pretty hum-drum Sunday stuff really and I didn't feel particularly glamourous and feminine whilst doing all that! Still, the smell has lasted well, without being too over-powering, and it's still easily detectable about 8 hours after applying it.
So this is a hit for me. I would definitely consider buying it, or even better, getting it as a present. It's a good thing that Christmas is coming up!
Thanks for reading! xx
