Diorling (Dior 1963) opens to the smell of sharp green fresh cut flowers flanked by spicy, damp patchouli and subtle leather. It’s crisp, but powdery… with a particularly pretty iris. Very much a 60’s green scent it reminds me a little bit of both Miss Balmain and Chamade but with the sparkling loveliness of L’Interdit, especially into the drydown.
Top notes: hyacinth and bergamot. Middle notes: iris, jasmine, rose and lily-of-the-valley. Base notes: vetiver, musk, patchouli, oak moss and leather.
Nose: Paul Vacher
