As someone who went through several bottles of it when it first came out in the early 90's, I can honestly say that this new formulation is awful. One by one, the stars make their debuts while the waves lull, and firewood crackles spraying sparks like tiny fireworks. Since they can no longer produce the original formulation, it’s better to just let it go than do it half way.

Our sprays do contain Ethanol, however the longevity is better than what you would get from the high street brands.

Dune brought this memory back, complete with crouching down behind marram grass trying to spit out the grainy, mineral sand.Immerse yourself in the radiant, fresh, and subtle accord that defines the landscape where the sky meets the ocean. Wearing Dune gives you that feeling of walking on a dune before and after sunset, when heat suddenly stops and the sand gets cold. Dune smells like a heavy spicy suntan oil, with a slightly sleazy edge to it, unctuous and intrusive. Luckily the woody beginning is as masculine as it gets and it did not turn any screethier or sharper than that.

It's become my "boss ass bitch" scent, maybe just because I wore it to the interview that snagged me a job that despite being min wage, was on the first rung of the notoriously difficult-to-enter career ladder I wanted to be on (despite having no qualifications in said career, which is why the interview seemed like a Hail Mary) - so I may have afforded this an auspicious, almost mythical character, but honestly? Apart from dry amber and wood, it was always hard for me to boil it down to particular notes because so many elements are blended into harmony. The masculine woody aftershavey effect of both is like the scent that lingers from his Old Spice hugs. The journey begins with invigorating top notes of Mandarin, leading to a heart of Peony Accord that enhances the freshness of the scent. Dune is one of my desert island, end of the world, save-in-a-fire favorites, and we need to clear some things up.If you like strong scents then the Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum is the ideal option for you, with a floral, slightly sensual scent. Dune is a feminine, mystical like perfume that brings to mind Arabian sunny days in Sahara desert with its sandy, quiet dunes and mysterious nights under a magical black sky and countless stars that sparkle like diamonds. If you do not like aldehydes do not worry, it is not a n° 5 thing, they are just a touch which brings freshness and cut the citruses shout we feel in certain fragrances. Top notes are Brazilian Rosewood, Aldehydes, Mandarin Orange, Bergamot and Peony; middle notes are Lily, Ylang-Ylang, Wallflower, Jasmine and Rose; base notes are Sandalwood, Amber, Benzoin, Oakmoss, Vanilla, Patchouli and Musk. Sad that it’s being discontinued, but something many of us fragrances lovers deal with time and time again.

As the wearer falls in love with the treacherous beauty of a virtually waterless world, *this perfume soothes the wearer by romancing with an almost scorchingly-warmed, sweet, woodsy and firewood-dry aroma, enchanting the wearer with its beauty while the wearer, parched and dying, remains nonetheless enchanted, charmed even unto death. A big, spicy-woody dry oriental that feels original, Dune is an aptly-named moody take on a beachy scent. This perfumes top notes include bergamot, mandarin, palisander, aldehyde, peony and broom followed by heart notes composed of jasmine, rose, ylang-ylang, lily, wallflower, lichen. This is a scent I know rather well, having been through about 5 flacons of the 1990's jus in the past.Unfortunately the rumours that it has been discontinued are true, I phoned Dior's head office here in the UK and asked them about it - they confirmed the bad news. My friends family and business partners often remark that it is a very delicate and unique fragrance, but they never asked if it was for women. For personal reasons, it also smells like Victory to me (yes, with the capital ‘V’) and I love it almost as much for that as the way it immediately transports me back to favorite places and memories from my childhood. She’s been through a lot and she’s gotten through the other side as a better woman, a wiser woman, a more loving and self loving woman. I haven't smelled it in any formulation since then but, from what I've seen skimming through here, I'm probably better keeping things that way.

With opening notes of benzoin and aldehydes, one can almost sense saline waves breaking into a mist against musky, sun-worn skin. This stunning beauty have floral notes, sweet notes, wood notes, dry notes, resin notes, amber notes along with the subtle fruity notes, aldehydes notes, pale musk notes and subtle fruity notes. The opening is woody, citrusy, but even slightly sweet and maybe not that appealing at first - I mean, to my nose.I had in my mind some recollections of it being too much in its original formulation: too woody, too strong, almost aggressive - maybe that is why some people voted for Kingdom, Crazy Feelings or Must as reminders - not because it is similar but because it went through those paths. The faint near-cinnamon facets also echo the sand dune vibe that was initially evoked with aldehyde-rosewood. Top notes include aldehyde, mandarin, bergamot, and rosewood, which transition quickly into peony accord, lily, ylang-ylang, rose and jasmine. I’ve been wearing Dune off and on lately due to being able to wear so many fragrances (sometimes at once! If you can translate the emotional connection, to know what Dune smells like, what the Dune experience is all about, listen to Sting's "Desert Rose" with Cheb Mami.
