Confession: I rarely buy perfume. In fact, I hardly ever buy perfume, which is mostly due to the fact that I have amazing people in my life that keep me well stocked every Christmas and birthday. Hooray. However, I was willing to make an exception when I discovered the stunning new, 'Absolutely Blooming' fragrance from Dior.
Yes, the bottle had me at hello but incredibly pretty packaging to one side, I adored this perfume from first spritz. Dior describes it as follows:
'Bright and colourful, Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is a floral delight you return to over and over. Its top notes of tangy Red Berry are joyful and striking. At its heart, a sublime duet of Grasse Roses and Damascus Roses embraces a sensuous Peony accord. This infinite blooming of fresh flowers is comforted in a base of White Musk notes.'
My unsophisticated nose would explain it as a fruity/floral mix with a hint of blackcurrant. It leans more on the fruity side than floral and I feel that if you typically avoid sweeter fragrances, you probably won't like this. That being said, it's a beautifully, feminine fragrance and the kind that I typically gravitate towards. I'm willing to hedge a bet that if you enjoy Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf, you'll likely be a fan of Absolutely Blooming.
It also wears really well. The eau de parfum is long-lasting and I don't find myself needing to reapply throughout the day, which is always a plus.
Annnnd, that's about as technical as you're going to get from me. Perfume descriptions aren't my strong point but my love for this fragrance is enough that it at least warranted a try.
