About this deal

Perfume critic Luca Turin believes that true menacing darkness is found in this fragrance and that it's a strong contender for the “bleakest beauty in all perfumery. I’m finding it so hard to express my feelings and opinions about this one…but all I can say is that since I first tested it I’ve bought 3 bottles (including one original formula)…all within 1 month. Aside from certain (pricy) scents from the upscale Maison line, recent releases from Dior have been lacklustre. Like some others in this comment thread, I too had a bottle of this back in high school; I know for sure I received it as a Christmas gift, 1992 I think, possibly 1993.

I learned the lesson well that the infrequent dose makes it all the more special, and that I should never overindulge its singular trip. I hate to say it, but my God, why is everyone putting so much patchouli into every summer perfume these days? Dune symbolizes escape into the world of dreams where only peace resides; it’s a place where sun kisses the sea, rays of light gently caresses the skin and twinkle in the warm sand while the tinkling ocean breeze brings flowery wafts peony and lily.A fragrance belonging to the oriental woody olfactory family unique in the world of perfumery for its surprisingly unusual sandy aroma in perfumes. By allowing these third party services, you accept theirs cookies and the use of tracking technologies necessary for their proper functioning. If you do not like aldehydes do not worry, it is not a n° 5 thing, they are just a touch which brings freshness and cut the citruses shout we feel in certain fragrances. I have had this from the same seller seven times or more and it has always been perfect and value for money.

It leans every-so-slightly feminine at this stage, but I would absolutely find it appropriate worn by a more masculine-identifying person.

In the sea of perfumes that occupy places on my shelf, I don't wear it as often as I would like, Dune is my sunshine, my oasis, its notes lift me up and bring me down when I need to. Ylang-ylang and lily with wallflower and lichen are the followings, while vanilla and patchouli with benzoin and sandalwood complete this rich composition with a touch of amber with oakmoss and musk. There is something herbal, spicy-dry and mellow after the first spray, while the final outcome is fruity, rosey, delicately woody, slightly powdery, salty and ambery. The first time I tested it the aldehydes were very potent and I also smelled what reminded me of bad breath for hours. I'm going to pass on this one, because I just don't think it's worth the prize -- but points for individuality.

This perfume brings back so many memories of my study days (it was given to me by my best childhood friend's boyfriend) and although at that time it was a long-lasting beast, it still maintains its spirit today, and although I cannot assure that it is reformulated ( it sure is) this precious one that fell in my hands preserves the smell that I had in my mind and has a very good performance. My skin chemistry has this unfortunate tendency of making wood-dominated smells bitter, dirty, medicinal or downright harsh. Fashion designer Christian Dior was born in France and rose to prominence in the fashion world with the creation of the "New Look"—voluminous dresses that emphasized a woman's curvy feminine shape. You referred to me as ''sexist'' and as ''small brained'' because I simply stated my own views about Dune and for those who think of this fragrance as unisex. Only reviews that feature the label "Verified Review" have been checked to ensure that the author actually used or purchased the product.An indefinable pleasant, light yet deep, sweet and fresh, with a powdery touch and a slightly woody accord. There’s something about it that’s really dated to me and while I can acknowledge it’s artistry, it’s not something I’d wear in public. 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. 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.
