The amphora shape was selected by Christian Dior in 1947 for his first scent, Miss Dior, introduced at the same time as his debut collection. The design was subsequently reprised for Diorama, Diorissimo and Diorling, and was the inspiration behind J’adore’s current bottle. Its sensual, rounded shape symbolizes the figure-eight silhouette invented by the Couturier-Parfumeur and evokes the excellence and delicate craftsmanship of ancient civilizations.

Each contains one of Dior’s legendary women’s fragrances and can be engraved with a date or initials.
