I own the vintage MDC and it's close, but not exactly the same. It's 85% close, and I wear this on days I won't wear the original MDC. It doesn't smell like roses at all. What it does smell like is the drydown of a Miss Dior Chérie with a drier musk and something plastic-like in the back. The citrus head notes of the real Miss Dior Chérie aren't there, but replaced by a blast of sweet red fruits at the beginning. The head notes don't last over 5 min. It's good. I hope the prices don't go up, unlike the other Montale and Mancera in this shop. The bottle I received had little scratches on it and it looks really bad, plus when I sprayed it for the first time, it seems like someone already sprayed from the bottle before. But at least the scent isn't bad.
This was a blind buy!
After reading many reviews I decided to purchase, I am absolutely in love with this fragrance. Rosy but yet creamy Lasts for hours on the skin! Wish I would have purchased the larger bottle! (PS. I do not get Miss Dior Chérie from this fragrance)
This scent smells almost exactly like the old version (pre-reformulation) of Christian Dior Miss Dior Chérie. It’s girly, soft and feminine. Nothing very original, it’s a crowd pleaser. If you like a fruity rose, you’ll love this. Sillage and lasting power are average. Overall, a good basic everyday fragrance (best for fall, winter and spring).
This was a blind buy for me. I thought the notes looked safe. When I first sprayed it, it was horrible. It smelled like a vintage masculine kind of scent. After a few seconds only, that unpleasant smell disappeared. The floral note came out more and some sweetness. I am glad it changed immediately. I could wear this but it’s not very unique sent for me. I never tried Miss Dior Cherie but I could see it smells like a Dior type of perfume. Not long lasting for me especially for a montale fragrance.
