So what does it smell like? Diorling is classified as a light floral chypre fragrance for women. It was reportedly created from over 350 different elements.
"Admirers of Dior perfumes, and that includes me, will almost inevitably be pleased with the newest, just added to the collection. Name: Diorling. Personality: contradictory — inviting and innocent at the selfsame time. Specific floral accent: none ..."
"Thus, in the fantasy world of fragrance, Christian Dior Perfumes Corp. offers its "Diorling" for the girl who has everything— or at least $175 for two ounces of the stuff— in a striking and costly Baccarat crystal bottle."
"Graceful urn of Diorling is contemporary in concept, $40*. Christian Dior."
"Christian Dior has just introduced a complete aerosol perfume collection. In addition to the purse-size atomizer (at $5), you can now color-select your favorite in three sizes — Miss Dior in white package, Diorama in grey, Diorissimo in pink, and Diorling in yellow. They tell me that there is absolutely no change in the formula."
Fate of the Fragrance:
Diorling was discontinued in 1986. But it was reformulated with modern ingredients by Francois Demachy and relaunched in 2012 as part of Dior’s collection Les Creations de Monsieur Dior.
Diorling is a leathery chypre full of spirit, just the way Christian Dior liked perfumes to be. A fragrance with British overtones, a composition with attitude, and the ideal accomplice for all-conquering femininity.
The new version's composition:
- Top notes: Calabrian bergamot
- Heart notes: Egyptian jasmine
- Base notes: patchouli, leather
- 100ml eau de toilette
