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.
