The elegance of a floral and luminous chypre
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.
Cut like a suit, the Miss Dior bottle features the timeless Dior codes of style: the houndstooth pattern engraved in the glass, the famous Couture bow… Each bottle is sealed with a baudruche film, wrapped in silver thread and dressed in a grey satin dovetail bow.
ORANGE BLOSSOM ABSOLUTE
Extracting bitter orange blossom enables a concentrated Orange Blossom Essence to be obtained. Neroli Essence is obtained through distillation.
Especially prevalent in oriental-style perfumes, orange blossom allows certain fruity notes to be accentuated in floral perfumes.
EGYPTE JASMINE ABSOLUTE
The symbol of feminine softness, 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.
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.
