Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming was released in August 2016. The in-house perfumer Francois Demanchy announced it as the edition that opens with bright fruity notes, intended for cheerful women who love life. The perfume was designed as a sexier, passionate and modern scent. The model behind the scenes is Nathalie Portman. Francois Demanchy words were: ”Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is an instant present for you. It is a beautiful gift that strikes you immediately.”
Absolutely Blooming Qualities
The opening starts with red berries and is sharp and extraordinary. Raspberry, pomegranate and black currant notes are elevated by the spicy provoking tingle of pink peppercorn. Exalted by a sublime duo of Grasse and Damascus roses, this infinite blooming of fresh flowers is strengthened by a white musk base. The base of white musks envelops the entire composition. The freshness is constant, is positive, smiling harmony for a devilish, compelling Miss Dior. Soft and flowery, but also fresh, Absolutely Blooming is like a summertime seduction that attracts you in an adventure full of magic and color.
- Top Notes: Raspberry, pomegranate, black currant, pink peppercorn

Above all of this, Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming is full of joy. Its fragrance is free-spirited and modern but still fully embedded in the luxury codes of Dior, making it a versatile scent that feels more than a little bit special.
Absolutely Blooming is probably one of my favorite from Dior, a perfect combination of floral sweetness, light but long-lasting. There is nothing at all over-powering about this perfume, but the fact that it lingers nicely is a testament to its quality.
Dior’s in-house perfumer has described it as a ‘’cheerful fragrance for a woman who enjoys life’’ and this is a pretty good description. You can put this on and go, without any concern about either be too to understated or coming on too strong. It is that spring and summer fragrance that is like a French bouquet with a modern mix of red berries blended with musk and Damascan roses. It makes you feel heavenly all day long with its refreshing fragrance and stands out as a unique perfume, full of grace, passion, and refinement.
In keeping with the scent, the packaging is very feminine, the pink color of the liquid matches the delicious floral character. It comes in a sturdy rectangular glass bottle with a spray pump and a cute girly silver bow at the neck. Long longevity, it lasts long enough on the skin, I could still smell it on after applying in the afternoon till the next morning. The sillage is not so good I would say it has a moderate sillage only. This would be more of an evening wear fragrance and also more suitable for colder weather.
Immediately adorable, casual and completely Dior, Absolutely Blooming is, as the designer François Demachy promises, a magnificent gift. The fragrance is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml sizes.
