J'adore L'Eau d'Ete

J'adore L'Eau d'Ete

About three years ago during the holidays, Christian Dior came out with a J'adore gift set which included both the fresh, hydrating interpretation of the classic J'adore fragrance, a small bottle of the lotion and the alcohol-free version of J'adore.

Because alcohol causes hyperpigmentation in the skin when the sun hits it, this is used more for summer use than any other time of the year as we spend more time outdoors.

Sephora describes this fragrance as an alcohol-free blend of tender notes of champaca flower, mandarin, soft floral notes, damas plum, amaranth wood, and blackberry musk is the perfect summer scent.

The notes are: Champaca Flower, Mandarin, Crystallized Orchid, Jasmine, Muguet, Violet, Damas Plum, Amaranth Wood, Blackberry Musk.

It's a bouquet of light florals, there really isn't one specific fragrance that stands out. I prefer this version over the regular one because I don't feel it as heavy and I think the notes seem a lot more subtle. I don't wear this often but have worn it year round and it works as an all day fragrance. I would repurchase this specific version of J'adore over the regular one.

It retails for $45/3.4 oz at is sold at Sephora.

I happen to love the original J'Adore so I'd probably like this one. The body cream is lovely, too. When it came out at Saks I ran to get it. Great print ad--I took notice.
