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.
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.
François Demachy created daring combinations that reinvent the fragrances and celebrate the unexpected encounter of contrasting notes. Pair Oud Élixir Précieux with Gris Montaigne, a sophisticated chypre fragrance interpretation of the signature color of the Couture House at 30, Avenue Montaigne.From $210.00 - Spray 4.25 oz

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.
White musk is a synthetic ingredient prized by perfumers. As a base note, it provides a powdery cotton effect, which leaves a velvety quality on the skin and gives the impression of mild, "clean" freshness.
