What Similarities Are We Looking for in Miss Dior
Miss Dior smells like you’re walking in a field of sun-ripened strawberries near an orange grove with a bag of caramel popcorn. At the heart lies a deep floral bouquet of rose, jasmine, and violet. As it matures, it settles into a comforting base of patchouli, musk, and amber. It’s a youthful fragrance that is universally appealing among those who enjoy fruity, gourmand blends. When looking for a dupe of Miss Dior, you want to ensure the fruity and floral notes dominate the accord. Without further delay, here is my list of the top ten dupes you should try if you enjoy Miss Dior.
10 Dupes of Miss Dior
1. Our Impression of Christian Dior – Miss Dior Le Parfum by Oil Perfumery
OilPerfumery’s take on Miss Dior is notable, especially since it’s very gourmand and lacks the rose notes featured in Miss Dior. This fragrance developed quickly on my skin, and I immediately noticed strong strawberry top notes followed by tropical pineapple and mandarin. There is a subtle caramel popcorn note that quickly fades away. This fragrance lacks projection and, to my nose, is noticeably sweeter than Miss Dior. The patchouli and woody base is soft and subtle. There are also hints of jasmine that develop throughout the day. If you’re looking for a dupe that captures the sweetness of Miss Dior without a strong earthy dry down, you may want to test this one out.
2. Floral Pink Pepper by Dossier
If you’re searching for something similar to Miss Dior but with a more powdery finish, check out Floral Pink Pepper by Dossier. This fragrance opens with bright, fruity notes that soften as pink pepper notes develop during the day. Dossier trades out the sweet strawberry notes for lychee and orange notes. I think it does a fine job of recreating the vibe of Miss Dior as it develops and reveals a strong, rose heart. Its drydown reveals creamy vanilla and woods. To my nose, it’s more subtle and powdery than Miss Dior. Give this fragrance a try if you’re looking for a less expensive alternative to Miss Dior that’s slightly sweeter.
3. Miss Class by The Dua Brand
If you’re looking for a dupe of the vintage formulation of Miss Dior, check out Miss Class by The Dua Brand. This fragrance opens with pineapple, strawberry, and caramel notes before revealing a bouquet of roses that lingers through drydown. The caramel note intertwines with rose as it settles into a base of patchouli, musk, and amber. There are hints of popcorn that reappear and fade throughout the day. To my nose, Miss Class smells like strawberry champagne, depending on the temperature. Unfortunately, Miss Class lacks longevity, and you will need to reapply it throughout the day. However, if you’re looking for a less expensive alternative to the vintage Miss Dior, check out this dupe from The Dua Brand.
4. Miss Dior (2012)
If you enjoy the current version of Miss Dior, make sure you check out Miss Dior (2012). This formulation was released in 2012 and features citrusy top notes, a musky, earthy drydown, and a floral rose heart. To my nose, this Miss Dior has a more masculine vibe than the current Miss Dior, and it projects well. There is a fleeting hint of strawberry, which isn’t one of the notes featured in this formulation. The sillage is strong with 2012’s Miss Dior, and a few sprays will last all day. I recommend trying this one out first since it lingers heavily on the skin.
5. Mon Evidence by Yves Rocher
For a fragrance that embodies the freshness and fruitiness of Miss Dior without the popcorn note, you should try Mon Evidence by Yves Rocher. Upon first spray, I noticed a mix of orange, bergamot, and pear. There is a hint of strawberry, which isn’t a note, but it’s distinctly there and lingers as the fragrance matures. Damask rose intertwines with jasmine, and these notes carry throughout the day. On my skin, Mon Evidence dries down into a soft, earthy base of patchouli with some subtle hints of vanilla. The patchouli remains strong as it slowly fades away. If you dislike earthier notes, you might not enjoy this fragrance. It seems to last longer and project better during warmer months too. Give Mon Evidence a try if you like the gourmand, floral vibe of Miss Dior and enjoy an earthier dry down.
6. Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel
If you’re searching for something similar to the latest reformulation of the original Miss Dior, Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel might be right for you. Coco Mademoiselle has a brighter opening featuring zesty bergamot, orange, and orange blossom. While it has a strong floral heart of rose, jasmine and mimosa, it is significantly woodier than Miss Dior due to ylang-ylang notes that remain throughout the day. I think the base has a slightly masculine feel due to the heavy presence of deep wood and resin notes. Vanilla and white musk soften layers of tonka bean, opoponax, and patchouli. This fragrance has staying power, and a couple of sprays will last throughout the day. The sillage is enormous, so give it a test drive before committing to a whole bottle.
7. Fashionably London by Zara
If you’re looking for a rosy fragrance reminiscent of the latest Miss Dior, check out Fashionably London. Fashionably London opens with bright bergamot before revealing a deep rose heart. I noticed it leaves behind a pleasant musk trail as it dries down but is not too overpowering. While vanilla is prevalent as Miss Dior dries down, I don’t detect any vanilla within this fragrance’s accord. The lack of apricot and other floral top notes makes Fashionably London more linear than Miss Dior. Fashionably London seems to dry down quickly and requires reapplication midday. The sillage is moderate, so give it a try before putting it in your cart.
8. Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent
For a fragrance similar to Miss Dior with a more complex floral accord without the rose, I suggest Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent. Mon Paris has a similar fruity opening to Miss Dior Cherie, but the floral accord is much more complex and fragrant, with hints of jasmine, peony, and datura. As it dries down, it projects earthy patchouli, white musk, and a slight hint of synthetic ambroxan. Cedar and moss round out the bottom notes, and, to my nose, they soften the ambroxan. This fragrance projects well, and its longevity is decent. The sillage is a bit strong, and the earthier notes may be more pronounced for some who wear it. If you like the overall vibe of Miss Dior, then you may enjoy Mon Paris as well.
9. Roses Elixir by Montale
I think that Roses Elixir smells like a lighter take on Miss Dior. It hits all the right notes, minus the popcorn note featured in Miss Dior. This fragrance develops as soon as you spray it. To my nose, there aren’t any layers to reveal. The rose heart remains constant throughout wear while strawberry, vanilla, amber, and orange all rise and fade throughout the day. The patchouli notes are present, just not as strong as those found in Miss Dior. Roses Elixir is slightly cloying so take caution during warmer months. It may overwhelm your senses. The sillage is high, so keep this in mind before making a purchase. If you’re looking for something similar to Miss Dior that’s not so heavy on patchouli notes, give Roses Elixir a try.
10. Morning Muscs by Alexandre.J
If you like Miss Dior but want something muskier, try Morning Muscs. Upon the first spray, the notes start sweet with elements of toffee, grapefruit and peach that envelop the room. It moves through a Damask rose heart featuring notes of patchouli and violet before settling into a musky, mossy base. I think this fragrance leans feminine. However, I think it could work as a unisex fragrance as well. Morning Muscs is a clean scent, and I think it performs better in cooler weather. While this isn’t an exact dupe for Miss Dior, it does capture that same fruity vibe and features a fragrant rose heart.
