Perfume: Dolce Vita
Perfumer: Christian Dior
Source: Beauty Encounter
Size: 1mL

OsMoz Notes:
Top: Bergamot, Peach, Cardamom, Grapefruit
Heart: Magnolia, Rosewood, Lily, Cinnamon
Base: Cedarwood, Sandal, Vanilla, Castoreum

Date: 4/27/08 Weather: 65 degrees, cloudy

Comments: Starts with cumin and flowers. As it dries down, the flowers (dominantly violets and lily to my nose) become more dominant. The cumin stays around for at least 1 hour. After 3 hours, get this pretty vanilla/cinnamon drydown with a hint of sandalwood. Showered after 5 hours – still going.

  1. The drydown to me is very much like BdeB with a little fruit on it, and apparently it was based on the same idea. I like it very much and at the same time can’t imagine when I would ever want to wear it. Too … big shouldered?

  2. Urk, that was supposed to be F de B — Feminite du Bois.

  3. Sadly – I don’t have Feminite du Bois to compare with – yet….
