I started my morning feeling very confused after reading Osmoz. First, I need to backtrack a bit. Miss Dior Chérie was originally created by perfumer Christine Nagel for Christian Dior in 2005 and it was a novel gourmand chypre with an interesting combination of popcorn notes and strawberries. The official description included green mandarin, green tangerine, strawberry leaves, pink jasmine, violet, caramel popcorn, strawberry sorbet, patchouli, and crystalline musk.
In 2011, Miss Dior Chérie was reworked by François Demachy, Dior’s in-house perfumer, and the new version is crisper and fruitier, less buttery and toasty. The official description lists cherry, pineapple, strawberry, mandarin, popcorn, jasmine, rose, violet, caramel, patchouli, amber, and musk.
Now, Miss Dior Chérie is renamed Miss Dior, while the “real” Miss Dior (the one dating to 1947) is to be called Miss Dior Originale. Simple, no? I guess our Miss Dior will remain forever young.
