Christian Dior Poison Girl Unexpected

Christian Dior Poison Girl Unexpected Banner.jpg

This spring, 2018, Maison Dior launches a new perfume for women that is described as sourly at the beginning and candy, in the end, thus making a perfectly balanced composition. Christian Dior Poison Girl Unexpected follows Poison Girl perfume launched in 2016 but comes in a more freshly, modern and sourly/sweet composition.

With Poison Girl Unexpected, I wanted to bring the strong, contradictory sensation of a sour candy into a fragrance. I played with the contrast of a fruity note that would swell into a spicy, sexy accord. A ginger note slightly seasoned with a dash of salt was the obvious answer. It conveys all the expressive charm of those tart candies that explode in your mouth and then give way to sweetness.

François Demachy

Poison Girl Unexpected by Christian Dior is a ‘radically pop inspiration. A sudden, lightning-fast sensation that sends sparkling shivers down the spine, then rounds out with a sugary softness’.

Top notes: Ginger. Lemon, Blood orange
Heart notes: Damask rose
Base notes: Musk, Tonka bean, Vanilla

Even though the name of the perfume, Poison Girl Unexpected, inspires an intense, pungent, strong aroma it still has the sour side that nicely balances the aroma thus making it smell gorgeous and luring. This perfume opens to impress with fresh nuances of lemon along with spice ginger note nice mixed with floral accords of Damask rose. The base calms with enveloping Tonka bean notes along with a delicate note of sweet vanilla and musk.

Very cool: Christian Dior Homme Sport Very Cool Spray

French Maison Christian Dior is delighting its fans with one more fresh woody/citrusy perfume for men, Homme Sport Very Cool Spray. This summer, Dior men will find the new aroma very light, daily, casual and modern.

I modulated Dior Homme Sport according to this new spray process. Its unprecedented scale by cloud diffusion of micro-droplets has a physical effect on the perfume. It’s an unexpected challenge, which really interested me.

François Demachy

Signed up by the Dior in-house perfumer Francois Demachy, Christian Dior Homme Sport Very Cool Spray opens with fresh citron, grapefruit, blood orange note. Francois Demachy reduced the sharpness of the Italian citron in the upper notes and left more room for the red orange, so the opening is more fruity than bitter, along with floral accords of lavender, rosemary, spice ginger, oriental nutmeg and Elemi resin notes. The base calms with vetiver, cedar, amber wood and sweet vanilla notes. This sporty, yet elegant perfume creates an air of romance.

Miss Dior: December 1947 – December 2017

invitation christian dior 70ansmissdior

Seventy years ago the perfume Miss Dior was officially launched, after having received its debut at the Maison’s first haute couture show, on 12 February 1947. We take a look at the history of  an iconic fragrance, conceived by Christian Dior as ‘a perfume that smells of love’, and reinvented today by François Demachy as an Eau de Parfum that’s more sensual than ever.

For Christian Dior, perfume was ‘the indispensable complement of the female personality’. When creating his couture house, he dreamed to being able to give his flower-women a fragrance that ‘smells of love’. With the perfumer Paul Vacher, he developed a floral chypre, which he sprayed liberally throughout the salons in where his first collection was to be shown. This new scent went against the powdery perfumes of the time. Dedicated to Catherine, his beloved sister, Miss Dior erupted into life as the perfect accompaniment for the happy and liberated young woman of the New Look.

 

 

 

Christian Dior Baccarat Miss Dior 1947

1947, Christian Dior Miss Dior in handmade Baccarat perfume bottle and stopper, cased crystal white cut to clear, gilt details (7 1/2 in).

Officially launched in December 1947, this olfactory revolution took form in a bottle conceived as an object of rare luxury and designed according to the same exigencies as haute couture, because Christian Dior regarded himself as equally couturier and perfumer. He came up with a crystal amphora that alluded to the harmonious silhouette of the En 8 line in his first collection. The couturier was involved in each stage of its creation and turned to the expertise of the best glass masters in France. In 1950, echoing the modernist impulse of the time, and at the same time as his Verticale collection, he designed a more geometric and sober bottle, ‘cut like a suit’. Engraved with the houndstooth motif dear to the couturier, this bottle, which is still the one that holds Miss Dior today, it set off with a satin bow. This ultimate couture touch, whether in metal or embroidered by hand in the workshops of 30 Avenue Montaigne for the more exceptional editions, represents the immutable link between couture and perfume.

Christian Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum

70 years on, Miss Dior succeeds in conserving its couture spirit and continues to capture the Maison’s revolutionary vision, especially in the new Eau de Parfum developed by Perfumer-Creator François Demachy and focused around the sensuality of the rose de Grasse and the sexy aura of the damask rose.

This declaration of fragrant love is embodied by Natalie Portman, in a fringed raffia-embroidered haute couture dress whose feminine curves and unexpected use of materials passionately encapsulate the spirit of the iconic Miss Dior.

Boasting eight molecules with strong regenerative powers, the rose de Granville is at the heart of La Crème Dior Prestige, precious skincare for rose petal-smooth skin glowing with youth.

On the cliffs of Granville, not far from Christian Dior’s childhood garden, the Dior scientific researchers discovered a wild rose, capable of resisting the harsh maritime climate. Carefully bred in order to heighten its vitality, the result is a rose possessing exceptional powers, the rose de Granville. Cultivated according to the principles of organic agriculture in a Dior garden, it can only be harvested twice per year. It would take fifteen years of research before the Dior scientists could capture the unique molecules that give the rose de Granville its extraordinary life force.

La Crème Dior Prestige OpenNow they are to be found concentrated in La Crème Dior Prestige. Into each skin layer they deliver regenerative powers more intense than ever to offer women the perfection of skin like a rose petal.
