Dior Addict Eau Delice Natural Spray

A François Demachy creation, Dior Addict Eau Délice was concocted to make women happy whenever they used it.

Meant to embody the freedom and joy of youth – its cheery ombréd grenadine hue a physical sign of this – this fruity-floral fragrance is less flighty than it sounds and carries a little gravitas within its charming composition.

As I mentioned some weeks back on Instagram: The sweet fruity notes stop short of being cloying and are anchored by a soft musk base that gives the fragrance a surprisingly sophisticated cadence often associated with classic perfumes.

Dior Addict Eau Delice

A finely-faceted cocktail of joie de vivre…

Quite different from the friendly florals of the Dior Addict range, it opens with a fresh, sweet and sour accord of fruity cranberries that lends it a marked berry whiff. Its heart, ylang-ylang from the Comoros (specifically the French region of Mayotte) and jasmine, has a certain milky quality after a while; especially when it melds into the base note of white musk.

It’s not quite gourmand but there’s a distinct sweetness to the dry-down on my skin. It’s delicious, as its name connotes, but more so for its character than the actual jus.

Despite being a natural spray, it lingers quite nicely and often lasts throughout the day on me.

In Singapore, it retails at S$78 (20 ml), S$122 (50 ml) and S$178 (100 ml). Do read Sara’s and Paris B’s reviews for their thoughts on this pretty scent. :)

      Hey dear,

      It’s my pleasure. It’s so well-written, as always. Hope Taylor is working out for you, despite its strength on muggy days.
