According to Next’s website, Diamonds is a floral fragrance with fresh fruit nectar and musk undertones. The more sophisticated Miss Dior Original has got a very similar fundamental notes including fresh fruit scent, which further develops into musk and patchouli. To be honest, it is not a 100% dupe, because you Diamonds is truly more floral than Miss Dior Original, however the main notes make it a satisfactory dupe for my nose! Since this is EDT, it does not linger on my skin for too long, I would say about 4-5 hours. I would also recommend you to do a patch test on your skin, because I’ve discovered that although on most places where I spray it on (read wrists, chest) there’s no reaction, when I spray it on my neck too close to my ears I get a slight rash, which goes away after a day or so.
The bottle is quite nice, although I would dare say that it’s a bit tatty and cheap looking. Especially the plastic packaging it comes in reminds me of some cheap toy, rather than a perfume. Nevertheless, you can’t expect too much for the price you pay. The importance of this EDT lies inside the bottle obviously. What I really like is the colour of perfume, which is pink rather than yellowish (often makes me think ‘olden days’ perfumes).
You can get this baby in Next for £10 and you get massive 75ml of EDT, which you won’t be afraid to splash on you every few hours or so if you need to! Definitely a nice spring/summery scent to add to your collection, which won’t ruin your purse!
