Miss Dior Cherie L’Eau is the green little flanker from 2009. It’s older sister, Miss Dior Cherie was a smash hit when she debut in 2005. I wrote a review of Miss Dior Cherie almost a year ago and proclaimed my amazement at one of the few perfume headaches I’ve ever gotten. And so, enter her flanker.
In Bottle: Sweet and flowery with a hint of cleanness. It’s like I’m smelling a bar of too-flowery soap.
Applied: So Miss Dior Cherie L’Eau is a little disappointing in the bottle, does she get any better on the skin? Eh, no, not really. She goes on with that sweet florals thing again, there’s a hint of sharpness to this that makes me think fresh and clean like a shower gel or a bar of soap or something. I’ll commend this for being less sweet than Miss Dior Cherie but there’s not much else to it than a very familiar, but very banal shower gel scent. The mid-stage is marked with a squeaky clean sweet floral blend of white flowers and fruits. The dry down is a floral woodsiness with a dash of sharp white musk for good measure.
Extra: Miss Dior Cherie L’Eau has a good thing going for it if you like weaker perfumes that don’t last very long but can still make you wrinkle your nose. This stuff smells nice, and if you like squeaky clean smells and little else, this is a good bet–just don’t expect it to last very long. The longevity seriously sucks.
Design: Miss Dior Cherie L’Eau is bottled in a similar shape to Miss Dior Cherie but with a taller bottle and a frosted glass-looking bow and cap. It’s still fantastically cute packaging. The juice is also an appeasing shade of yellow-green.
Fragrance Family: Fresh Floral
Notes: Bitter orange, lily, gardenia, woods, musk.
I admit it, I do like this a lot more than Miss Dior Cherie. But the fact that I didn’t get a headache from this probably has something to do with that. In the end though, Miss Dior Cherie L’Eau, is just not special. She smells like a great deal of other things out there and there isn’t much to set her apart. The bottle sure looks cute though!

I am always so attracted to perfumes that are of this light green color (Cherie L’eau, Chance Eau Fraiche, Versense). However, I always end up disappointed after sniffing them. And I couldn’t agree more with you on this particular perfume. It’s clean, soapy, kind of synthetic and very generic to my nose. I also went ahead and read your review on the original and…well, I think we have similar tastes. 😀 That one gives me an instant headache as well.
That being said, today I bought a small bottle of Lancome’s Poeme! YAY! I’m so happy with it — can’t stop sniffing my wrist. (just wanted to put that out there! LOL)
I’ve never tried Lancome’s Poeme. I guess I had better look it up. I’ve also never met someone with similar fragrance tastes before. Maybe we can swap notes sometime. 🙂
