Dior Addict

This Thierry Wasser gem must have been a staple in the fragrance wardrobes of many of my peers in the 2000’s because I remember smelling it whenever I went out for the night with friends. And like Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue or Viktor and Rolf Flower Bomb it evoked a sense of joy, youth and beauty back then. It was a little bold but in a nice way… The vanillic florals in Addict (Dior 2002) were ripe, juicy and sweet but not crass or pretentious. And it had a playful and festive amount of sillage. Thankfully I recently acquired this older bottle of the original formulation Addict… Every once and a while I’ll have to wear it and evoke memories of being 22 again…

Top notes: blackberry and mandarin leaf. Middle notes: night blooming cereus, orange blossom, rose and jasmine. Base notes: sandalwood, tonka bean and vanilla.

Nose: Thierry Wasser
