A few months ago I went into de Bijenkorf (the Dutch equivalent of Selfridges or Macy’s) and by coincidence smelled the new Dior perfume: Joy. I immediately was thinking I’m not going to buy this perfume because it’s way to expensive. Ever since that Bijenkorf visit I kept thinking about the Dior perfume. So a couple of weeks ago when I was shopping again I went into de Bijenkorf and smelt it again. I really doubted about the fact if I should or shouldn’t buy it. And you might have guessed already… I treated myself to the new Dior perfume.
There was a very friendly and helpful lady in the Dior store who helped me. She also noticed that I had dry and chapped lips, so she asked me if I wanted to try the Dior Lip Glow, because it has a moisturizing effect. The lady even told me that Dior won the Nobel Prize with the technology behind the moisturizing technology. I wore the lip glow for the rest of the day, at least as long as it lasted, and I absolutely loved it. And as a matter of fact it lasted quite a long time on my lips!
But less about lip glows and more about the new Dior perfume. That’s at least why you started reading this post. I really love the scent of this perfume, which is expected since I bought it. I’m very bad at describing scents, but I’m going to give it a try. It’s a very fresh scent with a hint of rose, but the flowers aren’t too overpowering. I don’t really like scents that are too ‘ flowery’ and Joy is very subtle in that way.
Fun fact when I bought this perfume I also got a very very cute mini bottle of the Joy perfume. Can I say again that it’s a very cute tiny little bottle? Why are miniatures always so cute? Ok, besides that it’s very cute it’s also very convenient when you travel on hand luggage only.
I really think that when you buy a designer perfume the experience in the store really adds to the overall experience. You really feel special when you are in the Dior story even though it’s within a big store like de Bijenkorf. Oh and if you are curious about the way the Dior Forever foundation performs you can go to this youtube video and watch me apply the foundation for the first time.
I think that the Lip Glow and Forever foundation are next on the Dior wish list! Do you have any Dior products? And which ones are on your wish list?
