Episode 24: Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet (or, Where Are You?)

I'm slamming these posts up because I am like, 8 million light years behind schedule. The review for Balenciaga B. should be up within 24 hours of this, but you know - don't quote me or anything. This is going to be an unpleasantly short review, so I apologize in advance.

Dior Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet

Let's start off with disclosure - this was tested from a sample, received gratis with a purchase that I believe I made from Bloomingdale's but may have been Sephora. Regardless, the important part is that you note I tested from a sample spray vial. With that out of the way, let's talk about this fragrance. The newest in the popular Miss Dior family of fragrances, Blooming Bouquet is "the couture spirit of Dior in a sparkling and sensual essence" according to press material. The notes include Sicilian Orange Essence, Pink Peony, Damascus Rose and White Musks. It is available in 1.7 fl oz for $75 USD and 3.4 fl oz for $98 USD. If you shop around you may also be able to find other forms and sets of the scent, for Valentine's Day.

So what do I think? I think this might be a very pretty scent... if you could actually smell it. I don't know if my sample came from a bad batch or what - I had to literally rub my arm under my nose to catch a whiff of this scent, and that was after I had doused myself in it. I even went to Sephora before writing this, in hopes I could try the scent from the bottle, but the Sephora I visited, sadly, did not carry this variation. (At least, not yet.) So, with sillage poor and longevity poor, I cannot recommend this scent.
Rating: ♦♦ - I very, very strongly recommend that you to not buy this scent sight unseen. The little I could smell was pleasant, but I would caution any shoppers to make sure you verify how much fragrance expands from you, and if you are okay with that. If you want to go for it well, that's on you. Buy it here.
I told ya, short and sweet. One of the most disappointing scents I have reviewed yet. I really hope that it was just the sample vial giving me trouble, and I will update this review if any new information about the scent comes my way. If you have this perfume, and like it, let me know! I'd love to hear your thoughts, whether good or bad. Pleasant journeys~
