Dior J'adore Parfum d'eau
As striking as its bottle is its unique formulation—alcohol-free, a concentration of water and flowers. The new fragrance reinvents the promise of pleasure that J'adore has upheld since 1999. Despite not containing alcohol in its formula, it still has the same long-lasting intensity of an eau de parfum that stays true all day long. "The pleasure of a reinvented J'adore bouquet with a strong natural focus: Neroli from Vallauris injects its full freshness into J'adore Parfum d'eau, while sunny notes of jasmine sambac meld with velvety notes of Chinese magnolia. A genuine ode to the white flowers of J'adore in a fresh and spontaneous interpretation." Available at Dior boutiques.
