A romantic stroll through the forest, a fresh, cottony fragrance

Description

After his fashion shows, Christian Dior loved to get away from high society Parisian life in order to recharge his batteries at his home in Milly-la-Forêt. “Hidden away from the world and surrounded only by my flowers, my canals and my small pond, I can listen to the sound of the Milly bells in peace.” He writes.
Wandering through the surrounding woods, François Demachy imagined this fragrance as the embodiment of a romantic walk in the forest, with a fresh, tender and cottony scent.

Perfumer's words

For me, conveying this place in a scent was like describing a walk in the forest. I wanted the accord to be very enveloping—almost cottony—and mysterious. A fresh musk, evoking the contrasts of shadow and light in the undergrowth: where it is dark, but where the halo of a clearing can always been seen in the distance.

      Mandarin is a citrus note that adds a fresh and tangy touch to the head notes of Milly-la-Forêt.

      Neroli essence is obtained via the distillation of bitter orange flowers. This evocative note finds full expression in the heart of Milly-La-Forêt with full, smooth scents that enwrap the tender, comforting accord of the fragrance. 

    • Base noteWHITE MUSC

      White Musk is a synthetic note and a material prized by perfumers. As a base note of Milly-la-Forêt, it adds a slightly powdery cotton effect that leaves a velvety quality on the skin and gives it the impression of “clean” and lasting freshness.
