Dior Tobacolor Eau de Parfum is a smoky tobacco and candy peach affair. Initially, the smoky tobacco, which was much less candy and extra like lit tobacco, appeared at odds with the sweeter, candied fruits and honeyed heat of the opening. The smokiness resolved over time and appeared extra blended and woven with what ended up being principally honeyed peach, even within the drydown.
It’s described as having an “ambery path” that “combines the scent of hookah embers with contemporary, fruity notes” with “tobacco” and “plum and peach” with “golden tones of honeyed notes.” The notes are listed as: tobacco, honey, smoke, white tobacco, plum, amber, peach, and citruses.
It opened with a barely tart citrus coupled with juicy peach that had tobacco smoke that felt drier and darker, much less candy, drifting throughout the medley of fruits. An candy, golden honey adopted shortly after, which appeared to combine completely with the fruits leaving a fruity, honeyed path that was much less definable by particular fruit.
The fruits began off juicier however candied rapidly, whereas the tobacco was dry and smoky, not fairly as blended with the honeyed, candied fruits–principally peach–because it appeared to separate from the fruits a bit when smelled. The drier tobacco smoke appeared to include over the following half hour with the honeyed fruits and have been lastly extra blended after an hour.
It remained a smoky tobacco and honeyed peach mix for the rest of its put on; the drydown simply appeared softer and rather less golden, contact darker, however not as ambery as I’d have anticipated (based mostly on the outline).
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain effectively right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are recognized to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be conscious of when a evaluate was made, e.g. a evaluate from 2010 could not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for 5 hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been average for the primary three hours of damage.
One of many earlier peachy scents in my trials, and I discovered that the rendition right here was too candy and for too lengthy; it ended up being extra cloying to me over time and I wished one thing to offset the candied vibe–that’s me simply not being stunned by sweeter scents, although. I can see why it’s a scent others love, as I do know sweeter scents could be fairly widespread!
