New Gold Dream. J’Adore L’Or by Dior

by Katie on August 7, 2010

Wow! From the moment it dropped onto my skin in gossamer tinged droplets of promise I knew I was hooked. Like the first hello that knocks you off your feet and sets your pulse and imagination racing, J’Adore L’Or has your head in a spin.

Beautifully packaged in a couture gift box with the stamp of Dior to verify its impressive heritage, it’s contents not only live up to but exceed expectations. It’s the real deal. How could you fail to fall in love with it?

It caresses and kisses your skin like a soft, meaningful touch with implied promise. So powerful yet subtle, I believe heavenly seraphim must have delivered this. In fact, François Demachy, Perfumer-Creator for Dior, delved into the heart of the original J’Adore fragrance to express its quintessence and create the Essence de Parfum. Using only the finest ingredients, M Demachy has created a fragrance that reflects the refinement of Galliano’s Dior Couture; Bottled luxury that echoes the ingredients selected for the perfect creation and construction of a Dior Haute Couture gown.

Bound up in a beautiful hand crafted bottle, the fragance is inspired by gold. Sleek, molten, smooth, sexy and glistening, there isn’t a hint of harshness. A radiant floral bouquet enriched with oriental notes using only the highest quality raw ingredients, this is a rare find.

Rose de Mai Absolute (Centifolia) and a Jasmine Absolute (Grandiflorum) are used, both collected from harvests in the fields of Grasse and then touched through with deeply sensual oriental notes to add opulence to the fragrance. The sweet, smooth character of Tonka Bean Absolute and the tender sensuousness of Tahiti Vanilla Absolute blossom in the base notes. Patchouli, drops of Labdanum and amber notes give an oriental feel that woos you into deep contentment and provides a more imagined thick stickiness. It’s like being enveloped in molten gold with soft, soft amber kisses.

Heavy sweet but not overpowering honeyness delivers exactly the right spoonful of sugar which dives further into a distinctive heady, sophisticated underbelly. It’s like being lulled into love. Sexy and impactful, this fragrance is for a woman who has lived. This beauty is meant to be worn for effect – other women’s envy and men’s enchantment. While steadfastly and seductively modern, it echoes of the past in it’s romantic intent and power: Like a 1950’s classic that’s been fast forwarded to the 21st Century for devastating effect.

This is one off detailed and embellished Haute Couture in a fragrance. A dream you can purchase and the promise of good things to come. Go with your heart not your head.

J’Adore L’Or launches 1st November and is priced £83.
