Dune by Dior Review
Dune is not your typical women’s fragrance even with the abundance of floral notes. Instead, it is a sobering combination of flowers and woodsy accords that is supposed to counter the cloying juices of its day. It is clean, dry and musky, the strength of the last giving it an impression of being a bordering masculine scent. If the Dune feels like it's up your alley, then it is good news that you will be able to enjoy it for the rest of its day because of its great performance.
A few sprays will get you through the day
The fragrance has a calming effect
Clean, owing to the musk
A bit dry in the opening
Feels outdated and unfashionable
