“The public has little idea of the care and worry which goes into the search for a new perfume which they see simply in a little packet. It is such an absorbing occupation that today I feel myself as much a parfumier as a couturier”. Christian Dior
Extrait de Parfum
to the legend of fine Perfumery.
"The extract is the enhanced olfactory idea of the accord. It is the original accord, the essence of the fragrance." François Demachy
For each Extrait de Parfum, an exceptional expression
Today, the House of Dior boasts five emblematic Extraits de Parfum, five manifestos that celebrate the beauty of flowers, the craftsmanship of humans and the time that goes into creation. François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, is their author. He gives us his own vision of a rare art of perfumery that perpetuates now more than ever the creative inspiration of Christian Dior.
Rose de Mai Absolute
Every Dior Parfum contains Rose de Mai Absolute. The queen of perfumery, this ancient rose is grown exclusively in the Grasse region of southern France. It has a full-bodied, powdery scent with hints of honey and pepper. Rose de Mai is cultivated exclusively for Dior in the south of France by two flower growers that share Dior's quest for quality raw materials: the Clos de Callian and the Domaine de Manon in Grasse.
"I wanted to return to long-forgotten techniques." Christian Dior
