Maison Christian Dior Spice Blend

Mr. François Demachy delivers another masterpiece. A bold, dense and a pure concentrated amalgamation of spices get added to the Maison Christian Dior Collection.

The name of Christian Dior’s latest Spice Blend fragrance says it all but its scent is not quite what you might expect. The aromatic-spicy juice, described as one that sits at the crossroads of spices with a powerful signature, is one that is simultaneously fresh and fiery. The inspiration? An exotic image, from Christian Dior’s perfume-creator François Demachy’s childhood, of a bottle of the famous Bay Rum lotion sitting in his father’s pharmacy.

While I don’t recall the scent of Bay Rum, that famous lotion, I do remember the bottle in my father’s medicine cabinet piquing my curiosity. Spice Blend is the olfactory translation of an exotic image gleaned from my childhood. The warm signature of this fragrance is highlighted by a surprising multitude of intertwining spices in dialogue. Like a gust of wind, Spice Blend leaves us wondering if it fans the fire or cools it down.

François Demachy

The opening of the composition offers the intoxicating and sugary rum aromas in which the exotic spicy blend reveals its own character. The spiciness of Madagascar black pepper, pink pepper, and ginger essence delivers fresh, piquant, and fiery nuances while Chinese cinnamon provides its irresistible fruity sweetness. This special, spicy creation also includes very fragrant bay leaves, clove extract, nutmeg, and coriander, all layered on a strong, woody, elegant base.

This unisex fragrance is definitely one of the fragrances you’ll have to experience in the flesh. Christian Dior Spice Blend is available as 125, 250ml, and a 450ml Eau de Parfum from 1 August 2019 at Christian Dior Boutiques and online at Dior.com.

A pioneer in nutri-cosmetics, the Dior Prestige line has been enhanced with a new micro-nutritive product, La Micro-Lotion de Rose, like an ode to Christian Dior’s favorite flower. The star ingredient in this unique skincare product, the Rose de Granville is a flower exclusive to the Maison, created by Dior Science’s researchers and based on an extremely resistant variety of wild rose discovered on the cliffs of Normandy close to the childhood home of the Maison’s couturier founder.

Dior has used a cold jetting technology that unites these opposites and transforms the rose oil into millions of micro-sized drops suspended in the lotion. Designed in response to the needs of combination to oily skin, this lotion combines for the first time the cleansing and purifying effects of rose minerals (like zinc, copper, and magnesium) with the nutritive and reparative properties of the flower’s precious oil. Thanks to exclusive micronization technology, which allows the oil to be fragmented into millions of micro-droplets each the size of a micron, its lightweight, comfortable formula procures an intensely fresh sensation, assuring 12 hours of hydration without shine.

Micronization allows the nutritive oil of the Rose de Granville to be fragmented into millions of micro-droplets, each the size of a micron, suspended in the intensely fresh texture of a lotion for ultimate purification and long-lasting hydration.

Day by day, the skin’s texture is smoother; it is cleansed, purified and rebalanced without ever compromising on comfort. The ultimate result is 24 hours of shine-free hydration.
