Miss Dior Perfume for Women: What You Should Know
Everything to know about Christian Dior’s iconic signature fragrance Miss Dior
The holiday season always brings a bevy of new scents. No surprise there — perfume is one of the most sought-after gifts to give and receive. With that in mind, Christian Dior’s Miss Dior Eau de Parfum is trending heavily, thanks to its jaw-dropping ad with Natalie Portman and a showstopping blend of inviting floral notes. This is an exciting amber floral from master perfumer Francois Demachy.
Actress and director Natalie Portman has been the face of the French luxury house’s signature floral fragrance since 2011. That’s when Miss Dior Chérie was released. Portman features in both the print and TV ad campaigns.
What Is Miss Dior Perfume?
Miss Dior Eau de Parfum is love, fun, and adventure in a gorgeous flacon. Notes of iris, peony, lily of the valley, and rose take your hand and lead you on a breathtaking romp. Meanwhile, apricot, peach, and vanilla add an oh-so-sweet longing. As the scent blossoms on your body, tonka bean, musk, sandalwood, and benzoin add just enough mystery to keep your admirers guessing.
This is a more accessible Miss Dior fragrance than the chypre floral original, which famously features notes of patchouli, musk, rose, Egyptian jasmine, and Italian mandarin.
The new Miss Dior bottle is an old friend to those who know and love the iconic original scent. Just in time for the holidays, the new offering is finished with an haute couture-inspired bow around the bottle’s neck.
The Face of Miss Dior: Natalie Portman!
The wow-getting Miss Dior commercial you’ve seen features Natalie Portman frolicking in a flutter of lush, natural scenes. There are refreshing feelings of freedom, love, hope, fantasy, and nature, along with a general range of intense emotions and, of course, flowers — lots, and lots and lots of flowers!
The hugely successful commercial (it has been viewed over 75 million times!) begins when the actress says “wake up!” — set to Janis Joplin’s classic cover of “Cry Baby.” Portman wears a stunning Dior Haute Couture gown designed by Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. The “millefiori” dress is similar to other floral-inspired ones she’s worn in past Miss Dior campaigns. The commercial ends with Portman asking “And you, what would you do for love?”
Miss Dior Review – Does It Live Up to the Hype?

Miss Dior Eau de Toilette Originale is guaranteed to show up in any list of the best Miss Dior fragrance. This reformulation of the original Miss Dior Eau de Toilette from 1947 is a chypre floral fragrance. Launched in 2011, it created lots of buzz thanks to sharp and crisp notes that contrast the classic and floral ones most associated with the Miss Dior brand. If you’re looking for something more than just a straightforward, run-of-the-mill floral with wide-reaching appeal, this eau de toilette is a breathtaking option. Notes of galbanum, jasmine sambac, and patchouli create a fresh scent that excels in the daytime and year-round. This is a much lighter version of the Miss Dior Eau de Parfum it’s inspired by.

This Miss Dior perfume for women was launched in 2011 as a new, more subtle version of Miss Dior Cherie eau de parfum — originally launched in 2005. It created a huge splash with its glossy ad campaign fronted by Natalie Portman, and remains a popular scent today. The chypre fruity fragrance blends notes of strawberry, rose, mandarin orange, jasmine, patchouli, sandalwood, amber, oak moss, and vetiver. This scent is what signature scents are made of. Many women say they first received this as a gift in high school and years later, they still wear it. It’s pretty and feminine, but also fun and flirty, making it a versatile year-round option.
Given its name, it should come as little surprise that Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a fresh floral scent that will leave you smelling like a bouquet of flowers. But don’t be alarmed, this is an eau de toilette, so it’s light. Despite an abundance of floral notes, there’s nothing too overpowering in this enticing juice. Notes of pink peony, damask rose, apricot, and peach give it zest. Meanwhile, Sicilian mandarin and white musk add complexity, making it a popular year-round go-to for many women. Natalie Portman’s ethereal and delicate image are the perfect face for this scent. The pink hue of the juice is fitting and adds a nice touch on a vanity. As for the bottle itself, it’s the classic Miss Dior shape accented with a decorative silver ribbon-style bow. This is a beautiful fragrance for a warm day. Not as long-lasting as some of the other Miss Dior options.
