Dior-Dior by Dior was launched in 1976. The nose behind this fragrance is Edmond Roudnitska.

 It was available in parfum and eau de toilette.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral chypre fragrance for women with a dominant jasmine note. It starts with a fruity, spicy top, followed by a narcotic floral heart, resting on a sensual feminine base.
  • Top notes: peach, rune, cumin, bay oil, honeysuckle, aldehydes
  • Middle notes: jasmine, jonquil, rose, tuberose, , lilac, narcissus, carnation, lily-of-the-valley
  • Base notes: oakmoss, sandalwood, amber, leather, civet

Country Life, 1978:
"You could treat yourself to a bottle of Dior Dior, the springiest perfume around."

Fate of the Fragrance:

Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued for some time. It was discontinued by 1986 but old stock was still being sold in 1987. The closest replacement would be Diorella by Christian Dior.
