A sultry, refined fragrance
Potent and sensual, Patchouli is an essential House of Dior ingredient that took up its place at the beginning of the New Look revolution in 1947.
Full of elegance, François Demachy's composition, Patchouli Impérial, is a celebration of this legendary oriental ingredient with notes as sultry as they are sophisticated. "Patchouli is a major note, the most animal of all the plant notes. It is refined, revealing unprecedented elegance."
RUSSIAN CORIANDER ESSENCE
Found in Russia and distilled in water vapour, coriander is regarded as a herb which is largely used in cooking. Containing linalool, coriander brings a fresh, zesty, peppery quality to fougere, citrus and chypre fragrances.
INDONESIAN PATCHOULI ESSENCE
Indispensable to any perfumer, Patchouli essence is obtained through steam distillation of the dried leaves. Rich and complex, it develops notes evocative of the earth and camphor accents.
INDIAN AND NEW CALEDONIAN SANDALWOOD ESSENCE
Appreciated by perfumers for its warm notes, Sandalwood embodies fullness and sensuality in perfume creations. It offers its elegance, roundness and originality to Patchouli Impérial.
