Dior Addict: A Packaging Ramble


Hopefully you've 'oohed and aahed' over the cute box within a box, the embossing, the ribbon and other classic examples of over the top high end packaging. Now, when it came to the actual product I was slightly disappointed at how small the bottle was--I know it is meant to be a small version and if you don't pay for full size you won't get full size. But the box just had me waay too hyped up, and the product itself became a let down.
As for the scent, it is very sweet! Not in the Britney Spears perfume way, much more refined and sophisticated-this is Dior after all! 
Haha, just kidding, I have no idea how to describe scents (said by nearly every girl with a blog or youtube channel). But I do know it smells sweet and for most places I go work/school/volunteer this is too strong for me to wear.


This is the frustration that takes the form of a mounting shoe box pile and no place to store them except the corner of my bedroom. I just don't want to throw them out, suggestions?

  5. Cute packaging! But the DIOR box I got last year came with a nice silver bracelet too from Sephora (500 point reward). I do agree though that the scent is too strong for everyday. :)

    1. I have the bracelet too but it didn't come in the 500 pt gift. For that I got a Bliss skincare set <3

  6. Dior always has the best packaging which is why I guess we pay so much for their products!

    I use the shoeboxes as sleeping quarters for my cats until they get destroyed then the go into recycling ;-)

  7. That is a lot of packaging compared to the little bottle! Though I guess you don't expect much else from a high end luxury brand?! x
