La Collection Privée Christian Dior Cap Eden Roc: A quick review

What it is: An olfactory ode to the historied hotel in the south of France, Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, this fragrance is billed as floral, woody and mineral.





Beauty bonus:
This perfume had us dreaming of luxurious seaside escapes thanks to the inspiration story and related images/videos. 




Beauty bummer:
It was more mineral than floral-woody for me.



Overall:
This elixir features top notes of sea salt, mineral and citrus, heart notes of jasmine and coconut and a base of pine tree and labdanum. 

When I set out to spritz this scent, I thought it would be more warm than it was. Instead, the minerality and saltiness remained on skin rather than the more sensual notes of jasmine and pine. 

The perfume wears well, lasting nicely into the late afternoon. And the packaging is divine — consistent, of course with the chic La Collection Privée Christian Dior range. 

Admittedly, this hasn't become a go-to fragrance, but I'm happy to spritz it on every now and again when I'm eager to daydream about seaside travels and summertime memories. 

Would recommend? Yes. Especially if you have fond memories of the south of France.
Where to buy: Dior
