Diorella by Dior
What Does Diorella Smell Like
Diorella by Dior is a vivacious scent that initially greets your senses with a crisp citrusy bouquet, primarily dominated by the zest of bergamot and a tart hint of lemon. The addition of refreshing green notes and a subtle whisper of basil adds an unexpected earthiness to the perfume, while a gentle undercurrent of melon imparts a delightful sweetness, softening the initial citrus edge.
As the initial notes subside, a blooming floral heart unfolds. This is a garden of honeysuckle and jasmine, their combined fragrances creating a seductively sweet and intoxicating aroma. Rose lends a classic romantic touch, while carnation and cyclamen add a spicy and slightly powdery nuance. The peach note is faint but brings a fruity softness that complements the floral medley beautifully.
The perfume slowly dries down to a rich and earthy base. Oakmoss is the most noticeable, offering a deep green, slightly damp forest floor aroma which grounds the scent beautifully. A hint of vetiver adds a smoky, grassy touch, while musk and patchouli provide a subtle, warm backdrop to the entire composition. In these base notes, Diorella by Dior evolves into a complex, yet perfectly harmonized fragrance that is both comforting and inviting.
