Perfume is definitely a girls best friend; especially when it’s Dior. I’m always on the hunt for a new scent to make me feel like a million dollars, so when it came to buying my new fragrance a few weeks back I couldn’t wait to try something new. I do on occasion replenish a fragrance if it’s a firm favourite but this time I was ready to embrace a new smell.
I took a trip to The Trafford Centre one Saturday afternoon to find my million dollar bottle of wow and after being inside Boots for a brief few minutes, a sales lady approached me as I was browsing. Anyone that knows me knows I’m a sales ladies best friend; meaning I always walk out with more than what I bargained for. Whether that be perfume or make up, I rarely check the price hefty price tag attached it.
In her hand she was clutching Miss Dior’s latest scent ‘Absolutely Blooming’ and of course I was more than willing to give the perfume a whiff. She explained the perfume is a sweet smelling scent without smelling like an oversweet cupcake.
I opted for the 50ml bottle as Boots had a promotion on with 10% off fragrances and in this case, the more the better. In total it came to £63.00 which is a really good price for a new high end fragrance on the market.
The bottle is decorated with Dior’s signature bow and it’s transparent so you can admire the lovely light pink colour. With hints of musky notes and red berries, it’s the perfect fragrance to transition you from Summer to Autumn.
In house perfume designer Francois Demachy announced it as ‘the edition that opens with bright fruity notes, intended for cheerful women who love life.’
Another promotion at the time of my purchase meant I also received a mini Dior lipstick, and this very adorable tiny bottle of ‘Absolutely Blooming’. If I’m looking for a top up on a night out this smaller than hand size bottle will fit snuggly in my handbag.
I couldn’t thank the woman enough at Boots as she also gave me a free Dior lash primer. I’m yet to try my freebies, so I’ll review these in a separate post.
What’s your new Autumn scent?
