About this deal

I loved this one way back when it first came out but I never bought it - because there is nothing as bad as being swamped by a tidal wave of an "it" fragrance when getting on the bus. Perfume Parlour competes with designer brands, it does not use other brand's fragrances, and is not associated in any way with the designer brands or their manufacturers. I think I'm definitely in the minority here, but I actually prefer the reformulation to the vintage.

It's quite hard to point out every note but I do get this warm sandalwood and amber with hints of florals and vanilla. Sadly, the new formulation is barely a very pale reflection of the original and smells enough like every other powdery, woody amber scent out there as to blend into the crowd entirely.Top notes are Brazilian Rosewood, Aldehydes, Mandarin Orange, Bergamot and Peony; middle notes are Lily, Ylang-Ylang, Wallflower, Jasmine and Rose; base notes are Amber, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Oakmoss, Vanilla, Patchouli and Musk. Having finally gotten my hands on a bottle of the new formulation of Dune (reformulated in 2001), I can understand why Christian Dior has decided to discontinue it. Sweet chords of amber and vanilla rise up like levitating embers, tripping the light fantastic until their inevitable transcendence into ash. I bought a bottle for my mom because she mentioned that she wanted to repurchase it and you know what? I have a bit of a cold at the moment, I'm not certain my nose is working as it should, but I am detecting the Lichen note in the opening; there is something a tiny bit mushroomy here, though only slightly offensive.

This is an afternoon at the beach, at the end of Summer, when the sun has started setting and you feel the pressure lowering and you get that smell of approaching rain. It reminds me of the Phil Elverum quote: "I am interested in what happens in the bottom of the lake at night. Dune conjures up white robes and hot skin, staying just the right side of cool in the blazing desert sun.It is quite powerful and full of floral spicy undertones, but like most fragrances, it is simply a love it or hate thing.

You are entitled to your opinion; however, I do not agree with the statements made in regard to the micro-labeling of genders. She’s been through a lot and she’s gotten through the other side as a better woman, a wiser woman, a more loving and self loving woman. Performance is very good, I feel the perfume on me for a long time (and much more on clothes), so I'd say don't be afraid it's only in EDT concentration - it will stay put like someone used a nail gun to put it on. The younger sister of Scheherazade of One Thousand and One Nights, whose name was Dunyazad, fits the mood here - something I could imagine being worn in The Mummy (1999), or Sahara (2005).I prefer the spiciness of the first 60 minutes of wear to the dry down, which is a little too powdery for my taste.

It's an excellent product for a Christmas gift and is one of the best perfumes that they have bought. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous, warm woody oriental that also masquerades in turns as a floral chypre. Fashion designer Christian Dior was born in France and rose to prominence in the fashion world with the creation of the "New Look"—voluminous dresses that emphasized a woman's curvy feminine shape.

Warm and sunny by UK standards; where it could potentially rain (hail if you've gone at Easter and you're unlucky) at any moment, and warm means it's pushing 18°C. Under no circumstances should the products of Perfume Parlour be mistaken for any other brand's products. There’s a saltiness, a freshness, and then lots of warmth, an intoxicating true amber, like the light coming through a precious stone. I didn’t get this when it first came around- not because I didn’t like it but because it wasn’t special enough.
