About this deal

I think this perfume is unisex in 2023 anyway, I heard often from women when they used it, that their friends thought it was a men's aftershave because of its soft woodiness. How they've managed to blend all these different accords and moods into a single perfume and still make it smell cohesive is beyond me. Today's incarnation of Dune, I am happy to say, is good, not as bold and strong as it once was, but it's still Dune. My skin chemistry has this unfortunate tendency of making wood-dominated smells bitter, dirty, medicinal or downright harsh.

This is the sweet but very dry aroma of a place where water is often mere fantasy, the wood is beyond desiccated, the sand softly to urgently driven by fluctuating winds of drying, heated blasts.Dune is the beach as the sun sets, setting the ocean on fire as it casts hues of glowing orange and gold. All of these statements aside, to speak of how I now feel about the current Dior Dune Edt… I do still find it to be incredibly beautiful, incredibly feminine, and they just don’t make scent profiles like this anymore. When it comes to sandalwood, I think I'm more partial to scents that make it "creamy" instead of "woody".

I have always sort of rolled my eyes at people who claime that current versions are a shell of their former selves. Perfumes with natural ingredients often smell different in batches based on the source of the ingredients, while synthetic ingredients usually have consistency in their smell and lasts longer.

Dune conjures up white robes and hot skin, staying just the right side of cool in the blazing desert sun. I loved this in the late 90s, it was one of my favourite scents, and I just had to get a bottle now to refresh my memory as I really prefer different perfumes now compared to a 20 y. I didn't mark it, but it is me, my signature, always there - in a place of honor, they don't know the number of used bottles.
