Dior J'adore Eau de Parfum

Dior Jadore Eau de Parfum Perfume Spray - Review
Fragrance Notes (as listed on sephora.com): Ylang-Ylang Essence, Damascena Rose Essence, Sambac Jasmine Absolute. 

Style:  Feminine. Luxurious. Sensual. 

Dior J'adore is an iconic perfume that celebrates femininity and luxury in a floral bouquet of Comoro Islands ylang-ylang, Damascus rose, and sambac jasmine.  It is housed in an elegant drop-shaped glass bottle with a long gold stopper.  The fragrance itself is a fruity-floral blend with top notes of ylang ylang, heart notes of rose, and base notes of jasmine.  The perfume opens with sweet floral ylang-ylang notes that stay prominent on my skin all through the day.  As the perfume warms on the skin, the floral rose and jasmine notes blend in with the ylang-ylang adding a heavier note to the perfume.  I am not sure what adds the fruity notes to this perfume, but I do feel there is a sweet fruity in this perfume and a warm creamy note mixed in with the florals as it dries down.  The first time I wore this perfume, my husband told me I smelled of jasmine - the flower is commonly worn by women in southern parts of India where I am from but I really hate wearing it (which is why I assume he mentioned it).  Anyway, I was quite surprised he detected the jasmine note right away because I couldn't.  While I can detect the floral notes in this perfume, I don't really pick it up as rose or jasmine.  It's a light, fresh floral that's not too heavy or overwhelming, and I like the hint of fruity sweetness I detect in it.  

I am not a huge fan of floral perfumes, but J'adore is an exception.  It's not my favorite perfume, but I love how simple yet elegant this perfume smells.  I could wear this all year round, though I would reach for this more during cooler days or in the evenings.  The perfume does last a long while on my skin.
