A delicately woody freshness
Escale à Parati is a journey to the heart of the finest ingredients from South America, specially selected by the House of Dior. A composition that unleashes the aromatic scent of Brazilian Rosewood, combined with fresh Petitgrain from Paraguay and Lemon from Argentina over a Venezuelan Tonka Bean base.
Grown in Paraguay, Petitgrain is obtained by distilling the leaves and branches of the bitter orange tree. It is used as a base for colognes. Fresh, green and invigorating with a hint of bitterness, Petitgrain displays its floral tones as Escale à Parati's top note.
Native to Amazonia, Rosewood oil is obtained by distilling the wood from the tree. Aromatic and finely woody, it reveals a vegetal freshness.
Tonka bean is native to Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil. It is harvested on the tree, dried and then reduced to a powder. The solid perfume or absolute is then obtained. Intense and textured, it unfolds its soft and warm aromas as Escale à Parati's base note.
