What’s your favourite perfume?
My favorite perfume is Dior J’Adore L’Absolu.
Do you always buy the same perfume or do you like changing and trying something different?
Once I tried this perfume, I’ve never changed it. I have not changed. At first I used J’Adore Eau de Parfume, a lighter fragrance; when I tried L’Absolu, I fell in love with it and I haven’t changed since then.
What are the reasons why you like it? What do you like about it? Does it bring back any memories? What is it reminiscent of?
It reminds me of flowers I loved when I was a child. At the time, my parents and I spent our holidays in places where fields were full of flowers, a true symphony of colours and smells. Those are the smells which still make me feel peaceful and good.
How did you discover this perfume? When was the first time you bought it? Where?
I first saw it at an airport many years ago. It was my birthday and my colleagues gave it to me as a gift, after realizing I had fallen in love with it. They gave it to me right there, while we were waiting for a flight to Ireland.
When do you like wearing it?
I’d say this is a classy scent. It conveys an idea of elegance and refinement. My job always puts me under the spotlight; I always have the chance to meet important people, after a premiere for example: well, this perfume is perfect for those occasions.
How do you feel when you wear it?
I honestly feel very elegant and classy when I put it on. J’Adore L’Absolu does an opera singer justice!
What opera character could wear your perfume? Or which opera character does this perfume bring to your mind?
Definitely the beautiful and classic Violetta from Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata.
Dior J’Adore L`Absolu was launched in 2007. The nose behind this fragrance is Francois Demachy. Top note is ylang-ylang; middle notes are tuberose, jasmine and rose; base notes are fruity notes, musk and woodsy notes. J’adore L’Absolu is lightweight, charismatic, and feminine fragrance.
