Questions & Answers for Dior Dior Addict Eau de Parfum

Ok, so I read a comment on here(and a few on some other websites) about this being reformulated, so now i'm a bit apprehensive about buying this again. This was my favorite perfume, absolute favorite, and the people saying it's reformulated have me wondering just how bad it is. I heard it's a weakened formula, which bugs me as the staying power is what made me fall in love with it in the first place. I also noticed that the 3.4oz edp is $10 cheaper than the other Dior 3.4 edp's.
I'd like to know if this reformulation has really made it weaker or if that's just slight paranoia kicking in. I'm deciding whether to buy this again, or just buy the pure poison(another fave) instead as that seems to be more expensive and hopefully same formulation.
I hope a Dior expert will see this and answer it, but would appreciate any feedback.

Don't do it - you will be really disappointed. It definitely is not the same... It smells much cheaper, the scent doesn't last, but the high price is the same. I was extremely disappointed when I got my recent bottle and had to return it!

The staying power is NOT the same...just my opinion.

I haven't noticed a change but some people get confused and buy the sister fragrances in the pink bottles which also say Dior Addict. Stick with the dark blue bottle.

I'm sorry to say it but the reviews are all true. I've just spent over $100 on this product hoping it was the right Addict , and no it is absolutely not unfortunately it is very light and watered down. Scent is gone within an hour and has a slightly different scent than the old version.

Is this the same product?
I know Dior has done a re-marketing of the addict products. But the fragrance notes seem to be different than the original. is the scent the same with the new bottle?

Nope! Not the same. The original DiorAddict and new Dior Addict edp are similar, but the new version is very watered down, isn't as memorable or powerful, and doesn't last as long.
The original had top notes of mandarin leaves and mulberry flowers; heart notes of Night Queen Flower (aka. night blooming cereus), Bulgarian rose and orange flower; and base notes of Bourbon vanilla, sandalwood and Tonka bean. This was a very rich and velvety fragrance. One spritz on your belly made you feel cozy and delicious, one more in your hair made you feel sexy.
The new Dior Addict Eau de Parfum top notes are silkwood blossom and mandarin orange; middle note is night blooming cereus; base note is vanilla.

1 spritz original DiorAddict+1 bottle of water=Dior Addict eau de parfum

So in summation, when a perfume goes from 8 notes to 4 notes, a lot is taken away in the process.

I've herd different things. Some people notice a distinct difference since the reformulation, but to me it smells very much the same.

From what I've been able to gather the reformulation was strictly to remove scent components has caused severe allergic reactions and the goal was to maintain the integrity of the fragrance. In my opinion it smells very much the same and if anything the cloying aspects that I smelled when I was younger are no longer there. Making it an even more beautiful fragrance.

Doesn't last but sample did!
I tried the sample in the store and the smell was GREAT and LASTED...anyone know why the full sized bottle doesn't? Wouldn't they both be the same formula?

On me, it lasts quite well if applied to dry skin (fresh out of the shower can be a problem). I do tend to reapply for anything post-5 o'clock. I don't use much at a time, though: I'm talking about a single decent spritz.

I honestly don't know about this particular scent, but, as a general rule, Eau de Parfum usually lasts longer than an Eau de Toilet. It's possible that is the difference.

That's the original Addict (not one of the spin-off versions-- this is the one that was first released), but my understanding is that they have tweaked the original formulation somewhat.
