(Though I think adding 2014, which I've only nozzle sniffed - and liked, to my collection will be a waste right now.) Okay I can't stop sniffing my arms now.I hope this comparison can help those of you who missed out on 20 and are trying to figure out which one to hunt down and buy.The bottom did not have a sticker but instead had the Dior info stamped on in matte gold foil (unlike 20 version which both had stickers with batch code stamped in a designated spot on the sticker.) Also the 20 bottles did not have the gold rim around the neck whereas the 2012 did, which differentiates them as the oldest versions and the newer version (not counting the latest 2014 offering.) That's it for the outside bottle differences, onto the scent itself. 2012, the 2002 definitely smells sweeter and my pick for favorite.
My brain starts to interpret things as if they were taste as well as smell.) So in conclusion, these scents are 95% the same.) I adore it and have just purchased another bottle of this everlasting beauty. I decided to go with the older bottle but from sniffing the two bottles they both smelled the same.in the made-in 2004 bottle, the batch code was stamped on the side rim of the bottom.2002 addict is a rich overdose of vanilla and florals much ahead of the trend of vanilla being so dominant in perfumary than it had been at any other time but it was right on the heels of the gourmand revolution ushered in by Angel in 1994.Now you can only experience addicts origional design in niche or independent perfumary as its been so tragically neutered beyond its origional intent.
