1. J’Adore By Dio
This exquisitely designed fragrance, which is the house of Dior’s most feminine scent for women, strikes the ideal balance between floral and fruity notes, making it a timeless scent that is both sensual and sweet. But being one of Dior’s best also means it’s incredibly pricey; it costs an astounding INR 17,200. (150ml). So choose the affordable substitute below if you like floral and fruity flavors!
My recommendation: Girl Edit by Tommy Hilfiger
Tommy Hilfiger’s Girl EDIT, which costs INR 4,300 for 100 ml, is a superior substitute for Dior’s J’Adore. This scent, which is floral and delicious as well, is an honest representation of the American countryside.
