Direct heirs to the haute parfumerie tradition, the Extraits Dior bottles are the pure distillation of savoir-faire, of the passionate work of artisans who have mastered unique age-old skills.
Miniatures with a resolutely couture profile, they're veritable glass gowns. The bottles that hold the Extraits Dior are little masterpieces of savoir-faire , specially conceived in the image of the femininity that they evoke. A bottle cut like a tailored suit, engraved with a houndstooth motif and set off with a delicate satin bow for the impertinent and fresh Miss Dior ; an amphora whose sensual curves recall those of the En 8 line of Christian Dior's first collection and a neckpiece painted in fine gold for the radiant and blooming femininity symbolized by J’adore ; a purple dress with the allure of forbidden fruit and a black wax seal for the sultry temptress who is the Poison woman… It's in the Dior ateliers at Saint-Jean-de-Braye in France, not far from Orléans, that these exceptional flacons are created.
There, the women of the atelier who put the finishing touches to the Extraits Dior possess unique savoir-faire and expert abilities passed down from generation to generation, much like the petites mains in the House's haute couture ateliers. To produce these veritable bijoux perfumes in the purest tradition, they seal the bottles according to the special technique of baudruchage , which uses a baudruche , a fine natural membrane, to ensure perfect airtightness. With an expert hand, they then tie the bottle neck with a delicate gold or silver thread before placing it in its Extraits Dior paper wrapping, ready to scent every kind of woman.
