Vintage Dior Miss Dior (Original) Perfume Giveaway

Today have a wonderful giveaway made possible by Bois de Jasmin’s reader Tamara. She would like to give away a nearly full bottle of vintage Miss Dior Eau de Toilette, 30ml (comes with a box.) She can send her package anywhere in the US or Canada (sanitized and well-wrapped, of course). “I found this perfume when I was cleaning out my aunt’s stash. It’s not at all my style and I would rather give it to someone who appreciates it. It’s a vintage bottle, so I imagine that it’s valuable.”

We are not responsible for leaks or damage during transit or for lost packages.

To participate, please answer these questions by commenting on Bois de Jasmin (email messages aren’t included.) I will randomly draw one winner.

1. Tamara would like help to find a woody fragrance with notes of iris. She tried Hermès Hiris, but it was too delicate for her.
2. Please let us know what perfume are you wearing today and why did you select it.
3. May I contact you via email to notify you of your win and share your email with Tamara?

The contest is now closed. The winner is Jesse. Congratulations. I will contact you via email shortly.

I would like to thank our entire Bois de Jasmin community for your generosity and kindness, whether it means giveaways like this, advice or comments.



  • Hera: Thank you Tamara and Victoria.
    1. I would recommend Iris boisé from Voskanian ( an Armenian niche brand)
    2.I am wearing Bien Aimé Jours Heureux
    3. You can email me . February 20, 2024 at 9:08am

  • Melody Oliver: Hi! Today I am wearing Elixir by Kayali, not sure if it is exaclty what you are looking for but it is very different and lovely!
    Please feel free to email me! February 20, 2024 at 9:12am

  • Peg Mastrianni: 1. Woody fragrances with notes of iris are difficult to find! My favorite, now discontinued, is Jo Malone’s Fleurs de la Forêt. I recently purchased some bath oil on eBay.
    2. I’m wearing Vetiver by Guerlain. I’m on my way to a tai chi class so must wear something lowkey. And I love it!
    3. Yes, you have my permission. February 20, 2024 at 9:12am

  • Nicole Chvatal: Morning! 🙂
    1. I’d recommend Room 1015 Electric Wood.
    2. Believe it or not, I reached for Miss Dior Originale this morning! It’s my go-to in the winter months.
    3. Yes, you have my permission to email. Thanks so much! February 20, 2024 at 9:19am

  • Heather Chase: Good morning,
    I would be so thrilled to use this perfume, about which I have read much.

    1. I also love iris, and for me, the best is Frederic Malle’s Iris Poudré. Here is a link to Bois de Jasmin’s review 🙂
    Here is the description from Frederic Malle:

    2. Today I am wearing Guerlain’s Samsara because it is a bit chilly, and Samsara makes me smell and feel warm.

    3. Please contact me via email!
    Kind regards,
    Heather February 20, 2024 at 9:20am

  • Adam Sultan: 1. L’Iris de Fath by Jacques Fath is a recreation of the classic Iris Gris. A very elegant, rich, powdery iris, but also incredibly expensive. There are dupes and samples though.
    2. I’m about to don some vintage Grey Flannel (also an iris classic, but on the masculine side)
    3. Yes you can email me. February 20, 2024 at 9:24am

  • Gretchen: I just love how this community supports one another! Victoria, you have established such a lovely (and lively) group of readers who share knowledge, support, enthusiasm, and wonderful gifts such as this. I’m always impressed by the range of recommendations and delight everyone brings to help one another find their fragrance. I would suggest Iris Nazarene, Niral, or Orris Noir. I’m wearing vintage extrait Shalimar today, as I need cocooning and a warm hug after a sleepless night. And of course you may email me! February 20, 2024 at 9:33am

  • Princess Tonk: I’m not sure what part of the scent you would like in what manner so I will just tell you what I love!
    Van Cleef collection Extraordinaire Bois D’Iris – although it is ultimately a skin scent it is lush.
    Prada Infusion d’Iris Absolu – I use this more than the regular infusion dIris but try both
    THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM: Serge Iris Silver Mist. Just in its own realm.
    Wonderful perfumes, wonderful search and (“don’t hate me because I love”) 💗 Miss Dior. Please write when you want. February 20, 2024 at 9:33am

  • Marsi: Such a generous giveaway! Though my personal iris favorite is Guerlain Après l’Ondée, a woodier incarnation that might fit the bill is Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist. A gorgeous classic.

    As it’s still very early in the morning here in Seattle, I’m not yet wearing any fragrance except for my Aedes hand balm (vetiver, petitgrain, and bergamot). I do plan to wear Après l’Ondée today in honor of this question.

    And yes, you may email me. In fact, I hope you do 😉 February 20, 2024 at 9:37am

  • Princess Tonk: I forgot – i am wearing BoisD’Iris VCA because I wrote you about it and I always can appreciate it. February 20, 2024 at 9:38am

  • Judy: Hmmm…woody with iris….

    May I suggest Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d’Iris? Notes include: Iris, Driftwood, Vanilla, Incense, Myrrh, Sugar, Amber, Ambergris, Vetiver, and French Labdanum.

    Today I am wearing Kenzo Jungle L’Elephant because it is a gorgeous, recent acquisition that I am getting to know.

    Yes, you may share my contact information with Tamara.

    Thank you, and I hope you find the perfect woody iris fragrance, Tamara. February 20, 2024 at 9:47am

  • Lily Friedlander: today I am wearing Cartier Baiser Vole.Spring is peeking out here in Atlanta.
    I particularly like Prada Infusion D’Iris – nicely balanced between dry woody and comforting iris. February 20, 2024 at 9:58am

  • Emily: One of my favorite elegant irises is Heeley’s Iris de Nuit, iris & ambrette with a base of cedar. Chic, charming, soothing. If you want to try something utterly eccentric, Slumberhouse’s New Sibet is a musty, animalic iris, like a buried library, lost & abandoned.

    Today I’m wearing heliotrope, People of the Labyrinth’s Luctor et Emergo. Bought up a bunch of samples when I heard it was discontinued so have a very little to treasure. If anyone has a line on a bottle, please let me know.

    You may of course contact me. What a lovely gift. February 20, 2024 at 10:16am

  • Robyn: What a generous giveaway, thank you Tamara!

    1. Chiming in with others to recommend Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d’Iris. On me it starts a bit sweet, but dries to a lovely, woody vibe with iris throughout. I’m also a fan of Prada’s Infusion d’Iris Cedre, I think it has a bit more depth and less sweetness than the current formulation of Infusion d’Iris.

    2. No perfume today, I came to work straight from the gym shower. But I have a hand cream at my desk that smells wonderful – Glosse Moderne in Universelle. A bit of orange, salt, and a woody/musky situation.

    3. Yes, please! February 20, 2024 at 10:24am

  • JillS: Hello! I would suggest Chanel 19 or Chanel 19 Poudre.
    I am wearing EL Legacy Private Collection.
    Please email me.
    Jill February 20, 2024 at 10:27am

  • Eloisa: 1. Prada Infusion de Iris Cedré may be a good fit for Tamara.
    Another one that I really like is Elie Saab’s Elixir, gorgeous blast of Iris but it eventually subdues to a bright neroli with a woody and slightly balsamic dry down.

    2. Today I’m wearing Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum Poudre, I’m trying for a few days before deciding to get a full bottle.

    3. Yes, You can share my info with Tamara.

    Thank you so much, have a lovely week. February 20, 2024 at 10:27am

  • Antonia: Good morning,

    I would recommend Iris Poudre by Frederic Malle. I love Carnal Flower and was given a sample of Iris Poudre to try which I thought was lovely.

    Today I am wearing Hanae Mori Butterfly for inspiration.

    Yes, you may contact me and share my email.
    Thank you for the giveaway,

    Antonia February 20, 2024 at 10:34am

  • Sandy Lee Carlson: Hello! This is lovely!

    1. I wish I could help with the “notes of iris” part of your quest. I am wearing Woodhue (Faberge), and it is as woody as its name suggests.

    2. I am wearing Woodhue because I inherited a taste for this fragrance from my mother. I like it for its clean, earthy, yet decidedly feminine qualities.

    3. You may contact me, of course! February 20, 2024 at 10:56am

  • Elizabeth: 1) Solstice Scents Manor Eau de Parfum Manor has woody notes, vanilla musk, vanilla & agarwood(oud). The website has many different scents with woods/wood based fragrances, plus, an easy and affordable sample program.

    2) Today I’m wearing Neela Vermeer’s Mohur Extrait – it also has some wood notes, that add to the beautiful rose, amber, spice scent. I only have a sample, due to the high cost, but it’s worth saving up for a bottle!

    3) Yes, please email me. Thanks for this great opportunity to receive a vintage bottle of Miss Dior, the perfume that Christian Dior named for his beloved sister, Catherine. I just learned this from reading the book by Justine Picardie, Miss Dior, A Wartime Story of Courage and Couture. It’s a very moving story. February 20, 2024 at 11:05am

  • EileenS: Its a little off the beaten track for iris scents, but I like Comme des Garcons Zagorsk. It has a very balanced feel to me – not too much iris and not too much of the woods.

    Today I am wearing Lubin Grisette. It does have iris and woods, but I find that the scent really isn’t about those notes. The heart really takes over with rose, iris and incense.

    Yes, you can use/share my email. February 20, 2024 at 11:13am

  • Grace: I would recommend Decadence by Marc Jacobs. It’s designer, yes, but it’s a unique take on Iris and woody/green notes in my opinion.

    I’m currently wearing a dupe of Portrait of a Lady, as I’m waiting for my bonus to come in to treat myself to the real thing. This masterpiece of a perfume is everything I aspire to be, and I think surprises people when they smell it on me. Who knew the goofball could smell so sophisticated, I guess?

    You are free to contact me! February 20, 2024 at 11:22am

  • SnowyOwl: What a lovely offer! I love iris notes.
    1. I recommend Maison Crivelli Iris Malikhan as a lush but zen approach to iris. Lesser known but gorgeous and subtly breathtaking is Meo Fusciuni L’oblio. (I love everything by this house, I recommend trying as he approaches fragrance as a spiritual and artistic expression).
    2. Today I happened to put on Estee Lauder Azuree on one arm and Guerlain Jardin de Bagatelle on the other -going ‘old school’ (I like to switch things up and play with how fragrance suits my mood).
    3. Yes, please contact me:) it would be an honor. February 20, 2024 at 11:32am

  • Ariadne: Lovely, thoughtful and generous scent share Tamara! Miss Dior is not my style either so I do not enter the drawing but offer my suggestions. Serge Lutens Iris Silver Mist, which is simply SOOO good (and woodsy iris for sure). For a buttery, earthy and very luxe iris I suggest Misia by Chanel. Both stand out and would make fascinating ‘signature scents’.
    Today I wear Gabrielle Essence, (which, yes, is better than the original Gabrielle). February 20, 2024 at 11:42am

  • Jessica Murphy: Hiris is beautiful but I agree on it being very delicate and fleeting.

    1 – I’m going to give two recommendations, with the first as a personal favourite and the second as a wildcard. One is Papillon’s Angélique by the talented Liz Moore. It also leans delicate, but a dry, woody and slightly green veil. Well-named. The second is Molecule 1 + Iris, which is a woody peppery Iris, a bit zippy and modern.

    2- Nothing! Because I’m stopping by a perfume store and will sample!

    3- Yes, I give my permission.

    Thank you! February 20, 2024 at 11:58am

  • Cheryl: Wow, what a generous giveaway! Thank you Tamara.
    Iris Silver Mist Serge Lutens might be what you’re craving. It’s the woody Iris standard. I recommend decanting so that it be sprayed rather than dabbed as it is only available in the iconic Lutens bell jar. For anybody who is not familiar with Lutens, they are based in France, and if you’re patient, they will send wax samples so you can sniff their offerings. In addition, a couple times a year they offer free shipping and or a discount.

    Today I am testing Chypre-Siam by Rogue Perfumery. It’s reminiscent of a vintage perfume, and I’m going to have to order a bottle. Delight? Shame. Guilt? It’s a blurred line these days.

    Victoria, you may share my email with Tamara even if I don’t win.

    Thank you both. February 20, 2024 at 12:11pm

  • therabbitsflower: 1. Feu Secret by Fzotic (independent perfumer Bruno Fazzolari) might fit the bill for woody iris.

    2. Today I’m wearing Dior Feve Delicieuse because I was craving sweet tonka and as a bonus I have finished off the decant. I have a lot of perfume so I enjoy using up decants and samples.

    3. Yes, you may use my email address to contact me and share it with Tamara.

    Thank you, Tamara and BdJ! February 20, 2024 at 12:19pm

  • Aida: Oh my gosh that is a classic beautiful scent 🙂

    I love everything woody, my faves are:
    Chergui by Serge Lutens
    Ambre Nargille by Hermes
    New discoveries through recommendations here by bdk fragrances which I had to wait on from Paris:
    Wood Jasmin
    Nuit de Sable

    I am also enjoying two Kilian scents in a mini discovery scent from Sephora:
    Good Girl Gone Bad
    Angel’s Share
    I also adore:
    1270 by Frapin

    Since the woodsy aspect of a scent always takes precedence for me- I am not certain about the Iris facets.
    Of course you may contact me & thanks so much in advance:-)
    Aida February 20, 2024 at 12:22pm

  • Aida: Addendum to above-
    Since I’m still in my pjs I haven’t chosen my scent for the day. But because the sun out on a chili day I may reach for my Chergui for that warm cozy embrace of cashmere feel 🙂
    Aida February 20, 2024 at 12:25pm

  • Johanna: What a lovely offer.

    1. What about Dior Bois d’Argent — if it works, it will be a Dior to remind Tamara of her aunt : ) .

    2. Stella Rose Absolute because in wintery Alberta, I’m starting more seeds to grow under lights and thinking of my garden.

    3. Yes, you may contact me! February 20, 2024 at 12:27pm

  • Joan Mansbach: How nice, Tamara. Thank you.
    While I’m not a traditional “woodsy girl” I would venture to suggest you try Iris Doux from House of Puente or Iris de Gris which is quite lovely.
    Today I’m wearing Ta’if by Ormonde Jayne, one of my favorites. I love its warm, lush floral/oriental notes. It has such a presence.
    I would be delighted to own the Vintage Miss Dior. Yes! you may contact me. Wishing you a lovely afternoon. Joan February 20, 2024 at 12:41pm

  • Patty Kowall: Tamara – For a true, luscious Iris , try Hermes
    Iris Ukiyoe in their Hermessence line . It is like sticking your nose in your grandmothers bearded Iris patch – warm and a true scent , not cool like IRIS . Just amazing !
    Today I’m wearing Buly Cresson de Orient because I’m longing for Spring and this is like walking in a Spring meadow . It’s from their new Jardins collection – heavenly …
    Yes, you may contact me if I win –
    Vintage Dior is a hands down treasure !
    A bottle filled with memories … February 20, 2024 at 12:50pm

  • Peggy Mcmillan: What a generous and lovely giveaway, Tamara! I absolutely love Hermes Iris Ukiyoe, but it is not woody and is fleeting, so probably not the best recommendation. Today, because it is mild and sunny in Tennessee, I am wearing Demeter’s Earthworm that smells like freshly potted pansies. Yes, you may contact me. February 20, 2024 at 1:11pm

  • Rachel h: I love Santa Maria Novella’s Città di Kyoto for a woody iris with Ylang Ylang, Citrus, Peach, Cypress, Lavender, Iris, Lotus, Cedar, Guaiacum Wood, and Patchouli.
    I just got out of the bath and have on Norma Kamali’s lotion that is scented with Eucalyptus and Patchouli and makes me feel like I’m in a european spa.
    Please do email me if i win!! Thank you so much Tamara and Victoria for another generous and lovely giveaway! February 20, 2024 at 1:48pm

  • Brooke: 1. Prada’s Infusion d’Iris Cedre: notes of iris, cedar, Tunisian neroli, benzoin from Laos and Somali incense. This is the epitome of a refined woody iris fragrance.
    2. Original by indie perfume house Riddle. I’m at work and wanted a diffusive my-skin-but-better perfume that would not outpace my presence in today’s meetings.
    3. Yes, you may contact me via email and share my email address with Tamara. February 20, 2024 at 2:10pm

  • Lily Friedlander: Hello all!
    today I am wearing Cartier Baiser Vole.Spring is peeking out here in Atlanta.
    I particularly like Prada Infusion D’Iris – nicely balanced between dry woody and comforting iris. February 20, 2024 at 2:18pm

  • Jenni: 1. Le Labo Iris 39 – leans towards woody iris.
    2. Twilly – needed some sparkle for my walk
    3. Yes to sharing email

    “What in your life is calling you… And the Wild Iris blooms By itself In the dark forest.” – Mary Oliver February 20, 2024 at 2:50pm

    • Madelyn E: Hi Victoria ,
      What a generous giveaway . Miss Dior vintage was my holy grail in
      College and nursing school – I loved it.
      . I would recommend Dior -Dolce Vita for that woody note. It still is a favorite of mine.
      Wearing Guerlain Rose Cherie edp today because I just adore the Rosie , raspberry notes .
      Of course you could email me .
      I loved reading The Rooster House , y the way .
      Thank you ~
      Madelyn February 21, 2024 at 9:07pm

  • Jean: 1. For Tamara I have two suggestions. First, Prada Infusion d’Iris. I find it to be an elegant fragrance that is a lovely combination of iris with a woody base. Second, Iris Nazarene from Aedes de. Venus’s. I happen to be sampling this myself today and it is promising to be a lovely floral woody musk fragrance..
    2. Today, I am enjoying a sample Iris Nazarene. It is a chilly gray day here and I chose IN because it is developing into a soft warm fragrance.
    3. Yes, you may contact me and share my email with Tamara.
    Thank you for another lovely generous giveaway. February 20, 2024 at 3:16pm

  • Jun: 1. For Tamara, here are some perfumes she might like.
    Van Cleef and Arpels Bois d’Iris – dry, woody, powdery soft, and meditative.
    Ormonde Jayne Vanille d’Iris is also very similar to VC&A but since it’s discontinued, might be harder to get.
    Parfums DelRae Mythique – woody violet and iris with a soft suede note. Unfortunately also discontinued but worth a try if a sample can be found.
    Houbigant Iris des Champs – floral woody iris musk. Very clean and soapy, with good longevity.
    Chanel Bois des Iles – rich woody amber with a hint of iris. There’s honestly a lot going on in this perfume but leaves such a cozy, memorable impression.
    Serge Lutens Santal Blanc – clean, minimalistic, soft sandalwood with iris. This one is really nice and polite.
    2. I’m testing Parfums de Marly Cassili today to add some cheer to a rainy spring day.
    3. Yes you can contact me and share my email.

    Thank you for such a lovely and generous giveaway! February 20, 2024 at 4:33pm

  • Cricket: 1. Tamara might enjoy trying, ‘Chopard Imperiale Iris Malika’. I find it lovely and refreshing throughout the day. Very mysterious and woody indeed.
    2. Today I am wearing, ‘Chanel, Gabrielle’ as it was given to me to sample. It’s quite lovely, and soft, flowery.
    3. Yes, you may contact me and share my email.
    Thank you for the chance to win! February 20, 2024 at 4:34pm

  • joan ramirez: I’ve heard that Jo Malone’s Woodsy and Sea Salt is quite nice. At the moment, my budget doesn’t afford me the luxury of new scent purchases but woodsy appeals to me. I’m using my scents sparingly so they will last longer. February 20, 2024 at 4:48pm

  • cecile: what wonderful suggestions, and delightful range of scents being worn!
    1.a possibility could be Prada Infusion de Iris,
    2.I am wearing Ostara from Penhaligons London
    3. Yes, you may contact me via email February 20, 2024 at 4:58pm

  • Perfumelover67: Thank you, Tamara and Victoria, for such a wonderful and generous giveaway.

    1. I would recommend Boucheron Iris de Syracuse, Jo Malone Orris & Sandalwood, Naomi Goodsir Iris Cendre, Gallivant Bukhara, and Armani Prive Iris Celadon.

    2. Today, I am wearing L’Artisan Passage D’Enfer because I love it, and it makes me feel very relaxed and peaceful.

    3. Yes, I can be contacted via email and my email can be shared with Tamara. February 20, 2024 at 5:04pm

  • deborah galuk: Thank you for this generous giveaway!
    1.I don’t know what Iris fragrances to recommend – however I love woodsy and will enjoy scanning all the favorite recommendations offered
    2. I am wearing Rose by elizabeth W today. I love their signature fragrances and find it blends well with others
    3yes, please contact me via email and it can be shared with Tamara February 20, 2024 at 5:12pm

  • Lori Casimiro: 1. I would recommend Iris Poudre by Frederic Malle.
    2. I am wearing Gold Woman by Amouage because I adore old fashioned fragrances and this one is such a throwback.
    3. Yes, I can be contacted via email and you may share it with Tamara. February 20, 2024 at 5:59pm

  • Maggiecat: 1.I’m going to suggest Commodity’s Book. It’s dry, woody, green, and has a hint of Iris. And it doesn’t cost the earth, so there’s that!
    2. I wore Korres White Tea today, both because it us a relaxing scent that I love, and because I was working with two different small groups of people today and wanted a fresh, light scent.
    3. Yes, you may email me. February 20, 2024 at 6:43pm

  • Graciela Pagin: Thank you for this wonderful giveaway.
    1.⁠ ⁠I would recommend Chanel n19, it’s my favorite iris.
    2.⁠ ⁠I am wearing Taif, I felt like wearing something flowery today.
    3.⁠ ⁠Yes, you may contact me by email. February 20, 2024 at 7:47pm

  • Billy Beyond: 1. My first thought is 19. Chanel Number 19 – timeless iris and so classy. Also I am surprised by how much I love Café et Cèdre by Zara – suuuuper woody with iris.

    2. Today I am wearing Cacharelle Pour L’Homme – a memory of French business men in the eighties. Class.

    3. You may email me! February 20, 2024 at 10:04pm

  • Hélène: Thank you Tamara!

    I would recommend Hiris, although I heard that it may be discontinued?

    Today I wore Reminicence Patchouli when home from the hospital. I’m back into a patchouli phase…. A bit heavy for a health care setting!

    Please share my contact details. February 20, 2024 at 10:28pm

  • Rene Saller: 1. One of my favorite woody fragrances with notes of iris is Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d’Iris; Prada’s Infusion d’Iris is good, too, but that probably already occurred to Tamara. But if Tamara likes less iris but still some iris, I’m going to come out of left field and say Samsara. That’s definitely woody, but the floral notes are sublime, including the iris. Guerlain is always good that way.
    2. Today I’m wearing Fendi Furiosa. I chose it because the gold tortois bottle called out to me, and I felt like smelling like peppery white florals, woods, and incense.
    3. May I contact you via email to notify you of your win and share your email with Tamara? Yes, of course! I will also add that I have a beautiful vintage purse spray atomizer case with just a couple of sprays left of vintage Miss Dior, and I would love to replenish. Not to mention the fact that I have been thinking of Fall/winter 2023-24 as the season of my bitter chypres! February 20, 2024 at 10:54pm

  • Cat Pick: 1. Perhaps Dior Homme would be bold enough?
    2. Choco-Musk by Al-Rehab because I just love its simplicity.
    3. Yes! February 20, 2024 at 11:23pm

  • Mademoiselle: Hi! What a generous giveaway!

    1. Cuir de Russie by Chanel – the iris, wood, and violet facets are even more pronounced than the namesake leather.
    2. Eau de Georges Sand by Nicolas de Barry, because I was craving vintage opulence!
    3. Yes of course, I’d love to hear from you by email 😊 February 21, 2024 at 8:54am

    • Mademoiselle: Oooh and another idea for Tamara would be to try Bois d’Argent by Dior. A very elegant iris with resinous undertones reminiscent of benzoin. February 21, 2024 at 11:09am

  • Sophia Benabdellah: Good Morning all!
    1- I would recommend l’Iris form Santa Maria Novella, a friend of mine loved it! but I am not sure about the woody notes
    2- I am wearing Bien Aimé La vie en Fleurs
    3- Yes, you can contact me by email February 21, 2024 at 9:06am

  • Theresa: What a generous and exciting giveaway! I would LOVE to smell the vintage Miss Dior as I find I prefer the vintage notes.

    1) I had a sample (which I used up to the last molecule) of Frederic Malle’s Iris Poudre. Loved it – but it is so expensive!
    2) I am wearing Belle Chasse by Hove today – a very pleasant carnation scent. I am enjoying the little bottles from Hove – there is a lot of perfume in a darling little bottle!
    3) Yes, you may email me February 21, 2024 at 4:09pm

  • Jane: 1.Prada Infusion d’iris

    2. Cabotine de gres I wore it just because. Working from home and the bottle delighted me. Been smelling it all day

    3.yes please share

    Btw miss Dior was my first fancy perfume. My mom bought me the EDP my first Christmas in college and I wore this scent to many a college party (probably too fancy for the fraternity parties I attended!) February 21, 2024 at 6:52pm

  • Madelyn E: Hi Victoria ,

    Madelyn February 21, 2024 at 9:08pm

  • Hilde: Hi Tamara,
    I don’t take part at this giveaway, but I would like to answer at your questions.

    My recommendations for a woody iris fragrance are already mentioned by other readers: Dior Homme Intense, Dior Bois d’Argent.
    However, if You want the iris to be more prominent than the woods, I would advise Guerlain Après l’Ondée, Atelier Cologne Iris Rebelle, Chanel n° 19 and n° 19 Poudré, Houbigant Iris des Champs.

    This week I am wearing Fragonard Lillas Fragonard’s perfume of the year 2024): a simple but realistic lilac scent and ideal for the coming spring. February 22, 2024 at 4:18am

  • Brooke: Wanting to add a few more to consider to the recommendation in my earlier post:

    O, Unknown by Imaginary Authors; Orris Tattoo 29 by Parle Moi de Parfum; Apollonia by Xerjoff; L’Attesa by Masque Milano.

    They may not all be orris/woody, but they are orris forward with balancing notes of woods, musks, mosses, or resins.

  • Maria Malaveci: 1. I wish I could think of something to recommend, but sadly I don’t know any woody iris scents! I hope you find one soon!
    2. I just bought Valentino Born in Roma yesterday! I bought it after looking at the notes, going to the store and trying it and falling in love with it!
    3. Yes, you have my permission to email. Thanks so much! February 22, 2024 at 10:48am

  • Anna Egeria: 1. Greetings! The only iris fragrance I’ve worn is Apres L’Ondee.
    2. I’m wearing vintage YSL Champagne EDP because I love it!
    3. Yes, you may contact me.
    Thank you Tamara and Victoria. February 22, 2024 at 1:50pm

  • Nadja: Thank you Tamara for your generous giveaway!

    1) I haven’t had it in a while, but perhaps you would want to sample Dior Homme? And I like the symmetry of giving away one Dior while acquiring another.

    2) Prada Iris Absolue today, one of my almost always the right choice scents.

    3) And yes, please do contact me if my name is selected. Thanks! February 22, 2024 at 1:52pm

  • Josey: 1. I recommend Chanel No. 19, *especially* if you can find the vintage extrait, which is rich and mellow.

    2. Vintage Shalimar EDT layered with dabs of Chanel Le Lion. I am *obsessed* with Shalimar these days!

    3. Yes and yes! February 22, 2024 at 3:38pm

  • Cris: I would like to suggest she try ‘Musc Des Sables’ Les Indemodables. It is a beautiful woody iris by Antoine Lie. The drydown is so elegant. I hope you try it! February 22, 2024 at 8:21pm

  • Alice: Hello! Thanks so much for the giveaway Tamara and Victoria!

    1. Prada Infusion d’Iris is a go to for polished, elegant, and woody iris. The Absolue is gorgeous if you love more vanilla.

    2. I’m wearing Chanel #5 Eau Premiere. It’s a gloomy day and I’m looking for a bit of sunshine!

    3. Yes please. February 22, 2024 at 8:55pm

  • Kelly Ott: Tamara – what I lovely gesture. I remember Miss Dior from 40 something years ago when my Mother had it. I used to sneakily spray myself with it – although I probably wasn’t fooling anyone.

    Among the many excellent suggestions here, I would like to add Dusita Splendiris. It was chosen as one of the best perfumes of 2019 by Fragrantica.

    Today I am wearing Amouage Ubar – because it is quite simply beautiful, and reminds me of the extravagant, vintage perfumes from back in the day!

    Yes you may contact me if I am selected! February 22, 2024 at 10:42pm

  • Jesse: :1. I don’t wear many woods, but Prada Infusion d’Iris sounds like a good option for you.
    2. I’m wearing Chanel Chance today, because I got a sample with purchase. Not my favorite, but it’s okay.
    3. Yes, you may contact me.
    Thank you! February 23, 2024 at 8:59am

  • Notturno7: Thank you so much for this generous offer!
    I’d recommend Iris Poudre by Malle, Iris Silver Mist or No 19. My favorite is No 19 in extrait version. Mmmmm so good 😍
    I even wore it during 10 day hiking trip in Wales my husband and I did a few years ago. One of those little life necessities 😜
    Today, I’m wearing Lutens. I dabbed Sarrasins earlier on, and now at my work I just put Lutens Tuberose Criminelle.
    Weather is finally spring like and sunny after all rains and storms we’ve had, and I guess today I was ‘craving’ some flowery vibes. Jasmine and Tuberose from these two fragrances I’ve put on today did their trucks.
    Yes, please. You can contact me. I love Miss Dior vintage formula! February 23, 2024 at 8:46pm
