Eau de Perfume
Dior Addict Perfume by Christian Dior, From Christian Dior comes Dior Addict, a sensual oriental fragrance for women . Tropical mandarin leaf is tempered with soft, juicy blackberry in the top notes. White floral middle notes include orange blossom, night-blooming cereus, and jasmine, colored with a hint of rose. Base notes blend bittersweet tonka bean with milky sandalwood and sweet vanilla, creating a rich, creamy effect. Swiss perfumer Thierry Wasser worked at Givaudan and Firmenich before being named the Guerlain in-house perfumer in 2008--a position which, until that time, had only been held by Guerlain family members. Prior to entering the field of perfumery, he studied as a botanist. He created Dior Addict for the house of Dior in 2002. There is nothing shy or subtle about this long-lasting fragrance; with its heavy sillage, it is best worn at night. Its bold floral notes bring warmth and light to chilly evenings, so it is good for the fall and even better for winter

JASMINE SAMBAC ABSOLUTE
Jasmine is an eminently Dior flower. Rich and faceted, it is a symbol of soft femininity. Indian Jasmine Absolute brings a mix of strength and delicateness.
Bitter orange blossoms are extracted to obtain Orange Blossom Absolute, while Essence of Neroli Blossom is obtained by distillation. A common ingredient in oriental fragrances, Orange Blossom is used to bring out certain fruity notes in floral fragrances.
The white vanilla blossom produces a fruit that reaches maturity in 8 to 9 months. The pods are harvested just before they are fully ripe, and then undergo a 34-month maturation process. Their fragrance develops and vanilla crystals form. The vanilla then unfurls its soft and spicy accords.
