THE INTENSITY OF A TIMELESS CHYPRE FLORAL

Description

Miss Dior Original is the very first fragrance by Christian Dior. Its avant-garde green chypre floral accord revolutionized perfume and embodies the perfection of the couturier’s mark. L'Extrait de Parfum Original intensely deploys this bold trail, which has become a great classic. The extreme refinement of the galbanum notes brings ultimate freshness to its floral heart of jasmine and Grasse rose absolute, while patchouli essence gives the fragrance its impertinence. Its precious bottle is cut like a suit and decorated with the iconic houndstooth motif. Sealed by hand using the baudruchage technique, the bottle is adorned with a silver thread and grey satin couture bow carved into a swallow tail. Minimalist and modern, the result is bold and extremely elegant.

Perfumer's words

The Extrait is the exalted olfactory idea of an accord. It is the original, principal accord of the fragrance.

Miss Dior
Extrait de Parfum

The Miss Dior signature is chypre - a legendary accord in perfumery. Pared down by Dior and given a modern edge to become bold and elegant. For the Extrait de Parfum, François Demachy shaped the Miss Dior accord for greater sophistication. He created an incredibly luminous floral chypre that combines Essence of Indonesian Patchouli with floral absolutes: Egyptian Jasmine Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute and Rose de Mai Absolute.

    OLFACTORY NOTES

    • Top noteGALBANUM

      The galbanum plant grows in Iran and Afghanistan. Its gum is harvested by cutting into the roots and is then distilled. The essence obtained blends well with herbaceous and chypre green tones. It brings a touch of impertinence as the top note of Miss Dior Extrait de Parfum Original.

    • Heart noteSAMBAC JASMINE ABSOLUTE

      The symbol of soft femininity, jasmine is one of the most commonly used flowers in perfumery. It is so delicate that it alone is a fragrance. Jasmine lavishes an intensely floral heart note on Miss Dior Extrait de Parfum Original.

    • Base noteINDONESIAN PATCHOULI ESSENCE

      Patchouli is a plant native to Indonesia and Malaysia. Indispensable to any perfumer, patchouli essence is obtained through steam distillation of the dried leaves. It is to be found in chypre, woody and oriental fragrances. This highly esteemed scent forms the base note of all the olfactory versions of Miss Dior.
