Review: Dior Addict, Eau de Toilette

Despite it already being launched last year in most parts of the world, this Summer we finally get to welcome the Eau de Toilette version of Dior Addict in the UAE! Yay! The fragrance is feminine yet fresh at the same time which makes it the ultimate beauty must have for Summer.



“Dior Addict Eau de Toilette is an instant, immediate signature. It is full without being opulent and charming without being overly demonstrative.”

– François Demachy



Top Notes     |  Sicilian Mandarin
Heart Notes  |  Jasmine Sambac, Tunisian Neroli
Base Notes    |  Sandalwood, Vanilla

The fragrance has been created by perfumer; François Demachy. The new Dior Addict Eau de Toilette is a Floral-Fruity-Woody fragrance with a strong character; it sparkles with elegance and underscores sensual accords that know how to stay fresh! In the beginning it’s quite fresh and sharp but after it dries down it develops into this soft and milky fragrance, that’s when the Vanilla and Sandalwood comes out. What also stood out to me the most is that the bottle has a cap now instead of twisting the knob, it makes it more sleek and sophisticated.



“Misleadingly sweet, Sandalwood Essence adds a full and milky woody note that is warm and almost ‘organic’. It is an addictive note that makes our ‘animality’ see reason.”

– François Demachy

The Sandalwood is the most important and legendary essence of this fragrance according to Dior. It’s made out of the finest, most ancient and sought after Sandalwood in the world which comes from India! This particular Sandalwood tree is extremely difficult to grow and it’s being finely shaved at the age of 25! At the end of this process an essential oil is being collected which has to be ”matured” for another 6 months…

It’s a fresh, young and feminine fragrance which I personally  love to wear during the Summer season. It’s an appropriate fragrance to wear during the day as it is for in the evening… Have you tried any of the Dior Addict fragrances before?

Launching date in the UAE: 1st of June 2015
”Dior Addict” is available in 50ml (380 AED) and 100ml (545 AED) Eau de Toilette
