Dior Prestige Le Nectar is delicately rose scented, which somewhat accentuates femininity. It's certainly an artificial scent, and I would personally wear it if they come up with a new perfume for Dior Prestige :3. The texture of the concentrate comes out as a watery light gel serum.
It spreads more like an oil-free water based lightweight serum, and a little amount goes long way.
It may seem very lightweight, but it takes about a minute for the concentrate to fully penetrated. You actually won't notice the true face of Dior Prestige Le Nectar until you start massaging it in.
The texture then starts to transform into an oil-infused serum, which gives your skin an instant born-to-glow. It doesn't feel that heavy at all, but it certainly feels more dense and rich than the initial impression that I mentioned above. As the concentrate gives a dewy glow, it can feel slightly sticky, but it doesn't matter much as long as you follow with something like a moisturiser and/or sunscreen over the layer.
This highly concentrated formula with its "fusion effect" texture instantly penetrates the heart of the skin. Super powerful, it regenerates the deepest layers of the skin and helps rebuild the deep down architecture giving it a resilient framework. The skin is visibly firmer. its contours are refined. The face appears toned and plump, and its elasticity is restored.

The pump packaging of Dior Prestige Le Nectar is perfect as it's very easy to control the amount that you want to use. I normally use 2 full pumps for both face and neck just for a reference. The concentrate seems to help with overall moisture retention of my skin as I haven't had any dehydration issues this Autumn. I have been even using it during my cycle, and surprisingly I didn't get any breakouts, which I found quite nice as I usually avoid any products that gives a dewy glow. It rather seemed to help with balancing my hormonal imbalanced skin, and I guess that's the advantage of the rose ingredient :3.
Having said that, Dior Prestige Le Nectar serum doesn't seem to be designed for sensitive skin in mind as it contains fragrance, PEGs and artificial colourants to name a few. So if your skin gets reacts easily, then I suggest you to try out a sample first. However, I've found the concentrate much easier and pleasant to use compared to other oil serums on the market. And I've been enjoying it even more over the seasonal change because of its unique oil infused lightweight hybrid serum texture. Technically, the concentrate is engineered rather than being 100% natural active plant oil, I can see that the serum will work on different kinds of skin more universally other than sensitive/reactive skin types. It's also a great make-up base with giving any heavy oily feel to skin. Although it has nothing to do with make-up longevity, I've noticed that the impeccable dewy glow comes through foundation beautifully. If you are interested in getting a 2-in-1 product (face oil and serum), then it's worth considering Dior Prestige Le Nectar on your list :).
