Welcoming Spring with Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet & Hair Mist

April 3, 2015

It is getting warmer where I live, and I realize there was just a sudden freak snow storm in the US a couple of weeks back, but summer is surely not far away now.  And I find myself continuing to reach for lighter, fresher fragrances day after day.  I have been a fan of Miss Dior Eau de Parfum for many years now, but never really explored the full range until recently.  And I would like to rectify that, starting with Miss Dior Blooming BouquetMiss Dior Hair Mist.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet & Hair Mist

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet was initially launched in 2008 specially for the Asian market.  It was later released globally, and the bottle was redesigned last year to feature a chrome bow on the cap (a touch that I absolutely adore!).  Blooming Bouquet is the perfect springtime floral musk perfume, light-hearted, fresh and easy to love.  It starts out with a slight fruity burst of apricot and peach, just the right amount to grab your attention, but nothing overly tart nor fruity.  It integrates well with the Blooming Bouquet’s floral heart, which despite its name, is not an ostentatious bouquet.  Peony has been used here in honor of Asia, and beautiful as that flower is, it does not bear a strong scent.  So, it is strengthened by just a hint of damask rose, and white musk in the base.

There is a soft sweetness to Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, and I am very happy to note a lack of fruitiness that tends to plaque such “fresh” fragrances.  The overall effect is a very easy to love, everyday wearable scent that manages to be rather youthful yet elegant at the same time.  I only wish that it lasts much longer on me, because it dissipates within minutes of application, and I feel like I need to douse myself liberally to be able to enjoy this for any meaningful time.

Miss Dior Hair Mist

Dior recently completed the Miss Dior family with the Hair Mist.  It shares the same characteristics as other Miss Dior fragrances – citrus top note, floral heart, white musk base.  However, it still manages to be distinctly unique with the use of bergamot, Egyptian jasmine grandiflorum, rose, musk and Indonesian patchouli.

Scenting the hair is a very old tradition that is coming back in fashion.  It is another avenue for fragrance layering, and can be a very sensual and intimate gesture.  Miss Dior Hair Mist comes in a sleek palm-sized bottle that is handy for carrying around in the purse to refresh throughout the day.  I especially like spritzing this on after work, before heading out for dinner.  It makes me feel re-invigorated somewhat, ready for what the evening may bring.

    I smelled this at Nordstrom and it was fabulous.

    I love the hair mist. I love Miss Dior Cherie the most, but it was a limited edition from a few years back. I wish they’d bring it back though. I quite like Blooming Bouquet as well as the Eau Fraiche EDP

      I think I read somewhere that Miss Dior Cherie was renamed Miss Dior (whilst the original Miss Dior became Miss Dior Originale)… does it not smell the same? I love Blooming Bouquet, although I really wish it stayed much longer on me. Likewise with the Hair Mist. Love the scent though, can’t get enough!

  3. Hey Linda, these are nice, aren’t they? I like the EDT the most, but I wear Blooming Bouquet a lot when it’s really warm outside. The Hair Mist is really great as well 🙂
