The timeless elegance of chypre
The first fragrance by Christian Dior, Miss Dior Original revolutionized perfumery with its avant-garde accord. An elegant fragrance with a dash of impertinence. In the Extrait de Parfum, the initial accord unfurls in an intense trail that brings out its daring, elegant qualities: a green floral chypre that blends Galbanum, Jasmine Sambac Absolute, Rose de Mai Absolute and Essence of Indonesian Patchouli.
Cut like a suit, the Miss Dior Original bottle features the timeless Dior codes of style: the houndstooth pattern engraved in the glass, the finishing touch of the famous Couture bow… Each bottle is sealed with a baudruche film, wrapped in gold thread and dressed in a white satin dovetail bow.
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.
SAMBAC 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.
INDONESIAN 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.
