Dior J’adore and I go way back… my first experience with perfume when I was a kid. To me, J’adore will always smell like my mom. J’adore is what I imagined elegance and maturity to be, what a sophisticated, caring and loving woman wears. My mom was my first heroine, my first superhero, and she wore Dior J’adore.
And then, there’s the bottle which carries the elegance to another level. The new Dior J’adore L’or, I find, is more suitable for evenings out. That, or when I feel extra classy. The scent makes me want to wear my power suit, or a red dress and killer stilettos. However, every time I wear it, I feel like the scent belongs to my mom. Do you feel that with perfumes sometimes? You associate a scent with someone. That’s probably why I know I’ll always cherish Dior J’adore until the day I die 🙂
Look at the details though.
Bittersweet, but Dior J’adore L’or is a beautiful fragrance I can’t wear. I really love it, but only when it’s on my mom. She has made this hers (no matter what version of J’adore it is) since I could remember and it seems wrong of me to wear it. Am I alone to have this reaction on a perfume?
