Cheval Blanc Paris, an exclusive fragrance from Maison Dior

I created the Cheval Blanc Paris fragrance with the enveloping atmosphere of the Dior Spa Cheval Blanc in mind, but I also added a touch of Parisian style. This powdery, musky scent is an elegant caress full of softness, serenity and well-being.

French Maison Christian Dior released a new video campaign for its cult fragrance, Hypnotic Poison from 1998, an oriental with notes of almond, jasmine, and vanilla.
Exuding a brazen, conquering spirit, Hypnotic Poison is an intriguing and arresting oriental fragrance.
François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator
Created by François Demachy, Hypnotic Poison isn’t a fragrance you wear, it’s a fragrance that wears you. With Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette, the fashion house has created a magnetic and sensual fragrance, the stuff of modern perfumery legend. A captivating and incredibly sensual Oriental.
In the spirit of the season (on the eve of Halloween) and in accordance with the image of this perfume line (Hypnotic Poison carries epithets of unnerving, bewitching, and enchanting), the new campaign exudes a spooky, mysterious, and surreal atmosphere, as well as the elegance of the French court and the French fashion house.
The face of the new campaign is fashion model Sophie Martynova. Various Dior fashion pieces are evident in the campaign, as well as the iconic flacon of Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette and the Roller Pearl edition.
The video ad of the new campaign is accompanied by an Instagram campaign, which shows the flacon of the perfume caught in flames and red roses from which blood drips.
Christian Dior Hypnotic Poison is available as 30, 50 and 100ml Eau the Toilette and a Roller Pearl edition at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Christian Dior.
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.
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.
In the fast world we live in today, it is very hard to re-invent a new and different perfume. French Maison Givenchy launches Eau de Givenchy Rosée, a new flanker to its iconic and timeless fragrance Eau de Givenchy launched in 1980, as a remake of the original from 1980.
Inspired by Hubert de Givenchy’s gardens in the South of France, Eau de Givenchy represents ´a moment of freshness suspended in time that feels like it could last forever´.
The newly updated aroma is created by the famous master perfumer François Demachy and has a new citrusy/floral aroma to become a new hit sensation on the market, just like the original perfume. The fresh floral-musky fragrance is designed to match the gentle, pastel pink color of its packaging.
Top notes: Mandarin, Osmantus tea
Heart: Rose, Jasmine Sambac, Water hyacinth
Base: Patchouli, White musk.
Givenchy Eau de Givenchy Rosée comes as a lighter and pleasantly citrusy fragrance with a soft base made of patchouli and green water hyacinth. The additional mandarin note just adds a revitalizing and fresh approach to this new irresistible Givenchy perfume.
Givenchy’s Eau de Givenchy Rosée is reminiscent of delicate early morning dew distilled into blissful new beginnings. Givenchy Eau de Givenchy Rosée is available in 100ml Eau de Toilette.
Renowned perfumers often leave their mark with a single famous creation that changes the industry, but a few do so with not one – or two – but many different perfumes. Perfumer Jacques Cavallier is just such a figure, having changed our scented world with such industry changers as Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classique, Issey Miyake’s L’Eau d’Issey, Lancôme’s Poême and Nina Ricci’s Nina. He has created perfumes for Maison’s as famous as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Rochas, designers like Giorgio Armani and Stella McCartney, and niches like Caudalie and Eau d’Italie.
Although Jacques Cavallier has one of the most extensive backgrounds in natural scent materials, it was inventive use of Calone-1951, the component sometimes referred to as ‘watermelon ketone’ that brought him the most attention for his early creations. He brought a freshness and light to perfumes like L’Eau d’Issey that re-imagined what a fragrance could be.
As a schoolboy in Grasse, Jacques Cavalier Belletrud would walk by an imposing portal. He had no idea what sat behind the wrought iron gates that so intrigued him. Little could he have imagined that, in 2016, this very place would become his creative workshop.
From my earliest childhood I heard all about perfume. Creating scents is like breathing for me – it’s just the obvious thing to do.
Jacques Cavallier Belletrud
Jacques Cavallier was fittingly born in 1962 in Grasse, France, the third in a series of perfuming men. Like his father and grandfather before him, he dedicated himself to the study there in his home turf.
At the age of eight, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud went to his father, and told him he wanted to follow in his footsteps. He learned perfume notes the way other children practiced piano scales. When he got good grades in school, his father allowed him to weigh out formulas. The day after receiving his high school diploma, he began working in a perfume factory in Grasse, where he learned to distill flowers.
He studied French and Spanish at the University of Nice, and at 18, he created his first formula – but his father reminded him that becoming a perfumer takes much more than mixing a few scents together. It would take a lot of hard work to be hired at the famous perfume and flavor company Firmenich that he met Alberto Morillas, with whom he collaborated on many perfumes, and where he would spend the next 22 years.
Jacques is a perfumer of great variation and considerable range. His work is intensely wearable, and it may be due alone to this singular quality that he was awarded the Prix François Coty at the Prix International du Parfum in 2004.

For a long time Jacques Cavallier Belletrud worked for Firmenich, a company that produces perfumes for other brands, he moved on to the LVMH group (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessey SE) in 2012, where he works together with François Demachy as in-house master perfumer, and becoming the exclusive perfumer for Louis Vuitton. Named Maître Parfumeur of Louis Vuitton, he traveled the world for four years to perfect the first collection of Louis Vuitton perfumes. The French Maison hadn’t released any scents since the mid-twentieth century, marking new territory in creative exploration for them.

At the heart of Miss Dior Eau de Toilette, the light and brilliant Centifolia rose unfurls its full, luminous beauty. I wanted to give it a unique, refreshing quality with a Lilly of the valley accord.
François Demachy, Parfumeur-Créateur Dior

When you seek for freshness and lovely aromas you may get confused with the variety of perfumes available nowadays on the market. This summer, Givenchy invites us to try a new refreshing and pure aroma designed to please both men and women, Givenchy Eau de Givenchy.
Givenchy Eau de Givenchy is the new updated and new stylish interpretation of the original fragrance launched in 1980. Today, the new fragrance is all about a greeny/citrusy and fresh perfume inspired by the gorgeous south France gardens in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.
Inspired by the south of France, Eau de Givenchy captures the smoothness of orange blossoms disclosed by the zesty citrus orchards and only subverted by comforting musks. A moment of freshness suspended in time that feels like it could last forever.
What can be more thrilling and intriguing than to emanate such a nice, soft and delicate aroma with a surprising daring smell. Givenchy Eau de Givenchy is composed by famous perfumer François Demachy as a burst of fresh citrusy ingredients nicely combined with flowers and wood elements.
Givenchy Eau de Givenchy is available as 100ml Eau de Toilette. Come into the beautiful world of Givenchy.
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.
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’.
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.
Top notes: Ginger. Lemon, Blood orange
Heart notes: Damask rose
Base notes: Musk, Tonka bean, Vanilla
The design bottle remains the same as the original version, yet filled with a more bright pink color. Christian Dior Poison Girl Unexpected is available as 30ml rollerball travelsize, 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.
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.
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.
Top notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit. Citron, Blood orange, Lavender, Pear, Rosemary
Heart notes: Elemi resin, Ginger, Pink pepper, Nutmeg
Base notes: Cedar, Haitian vertiver, Vanilla, Vertiver, Amber wood
