I haven’t hidden my love for the Miss Dior Cherie ad campaign and after waiting a couple of months for leftover money and taking a trip into Brown Thomas once a week to make sure I still liked it, I was finally able buy it on Thursday.
I was so very excited.
One last smell of the bottle to make sure it still smelled pretty and summery and hurrah it did!
Handed it over to The Boy to make sure he liked it and hurrah he did!
Purchased a bottle, and when we sat down to dinner and gave a quick spritz to my wrist and it was absolutely divine!
A little later, I couldn’t resist applying it properly, and it was at this point that everything went horribly wrong. It was giving off this awful chemically smell, as though I’d used far too much. I popped into the bathroom to wash it off, quite upset about it but vowing to try again when I got home.
The next time I used it, it happened again and instead of smelling as pretty as it had in the bottle, it was turning to a chemically stench. I thought maybe it just wasn’t mixing well with me, until The Boy pointed out that it had smelled lovely on my the first time I used it!
I tried spraying some into the lid and dabbing it onto me, but the smell was actually worse.
Eventually I realised that if I kind of sprayed it into the air and walked through it or sprayed it above my wrist, the smell was more like what I’d originally fell for. However, it’s a pretty labourious process, which also involved a lot of waste …AND IT DIDN’T EVEN LAST!!!! After an hour I’d have to wedge my wrist up my nose to smell anything, which meant another tedious perfume application!!!
Je suis not impressed, Dior!
