This is a sweet oriental smell which has a spicy woody base. This perfume of joy and happiness reminds us of hot and sunny summer days-the aroma of easy living. Leading notes include lily, magnolia and rose and then peach, apricot and cinnamon in the center whilst the drydown notes are sandal, heliotrope and vanilla. This “lovely” Dior’s classic is produced by Pierre Bourdon and Maurice Roger in 1994. Dolce Vita perfume is my signature perfume for many years and I could be lost without one. I get a lot of compliments on it and wear it on a daily basis. The container in no way has a label on it, but contains a small sticker on the bottom. It is not a scent that Dior pushes but its a classic that is important on their brand. I am fortunate enough to get always acquired a geniune bottle, but feel like often it takes time for your parfum to settle if many experts have posted. Parfum is definitely an personal, individual thing that im sure it can be in our Dolce Vita perfume chemistry as to which scents are right us. It come out of the container somewhat overwhelming, but right away mellows and leaves a nice odor that I can recognize a long time later. I remember getting constantly complimented wherever I went, and that i realized that Dolce Vita perfume were built with a amazing synergy with my skin considering a friend that wore it too has a very different scent for that reason, good, but it really made a significant difference. As the point in fact all of my friends that didnt particularly like Dolce Vita perfume, would considered it well- acceptable and magnificient on me. Not one other perfume received such an impact with my skin chemistry, in short, sometimes it really makes a difference how good it functions with your skin. My advice is to test it prior to buying this little elegance and if its well-balanced along with your body chemistry youll get a feminine, charming and tres chic aroma. Ive always loved this fragrance. A classic superb perfume.The fragrance never grows old also it lasts through out the day, a definately great purchase. So positive and tends to make me feel good, makes me smile. I would like to get it to be a signature aroma. Its strong so you must be careful of over doing it. I usually get comments about its scent from clients and they are often positive! Its really difficult to get in high end merchants, in reality I cant find it so turned to Amazon online. Im definitely greatful they carry it so I acquired as big a bottle as I can afford!! It delivered quicker then they said so I was satisfied about it, got it for my Christmas time reward to myself! This my mummys beloved aroma so I presented it as a a Mothers Day gift for her. She was so overwhelmed and thought I would not obtain this fragrance any more. She has been using it almost daily since. This is a great cologne as well as classic from Christian Dior! Highly recommended!
