We Love Perfume: Jean Imbert

The second “fragrance lover” to take part: Jean Imbert is a passionate cook who generously proclaims his profound love for perfumes.

Trained at the Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon, this 36-year-old virtuoso chef, who heads several restaurants, expresses a particular sensitivity to smells. Almost sacred, it is connected to time. The time he takes and spends in front of his stoves transcending ingredients to create dishes that represent him and evoke his favorite scents. These are also the aromas of Brittany where, as a child, he spent all his vacations, which he would like to capture in a bottle. Another olfactory experience that transports him is the one offered by the Bois d'Argent candle, which is a reflection of his cuisine: convivial and warm.

In the heart of Paris, on the fabled Place Vendôme, it seeks to bring together aesthetes from around the world united by their passion for perfume. In a warm atmosphere, punctuated by contemporary designed rooms reflecting a certain French art de vivre dear to the founding couturier, Maison Christian Dior displays its perfume bottles and other scented pleasures, such as soaps and candles, developed with the greatest care and exacting precision by François Demachy. This unique setting will provide a meeting point throughout the year, as well as a location for special events, for the friends of the House.

 

To inaugurate this Parisian address, on June 26 Dior invited its first batch of “fragrances lovers”. French personalities from the worlds of art, music, dance and gastronomy, all of whom possess a particular sensitivity to scent, as a way of experiencing and expressing emotion. Guests included Lou Doillon, Charlotte Le Bon, Marie-Agnes Gillot, Mathilde Favier, Mathias Kiss, whose famous crumpled mirror adorns the dining room wall, Pierre Banchereau, Sophie Vouzelaud, and Jean Imbert who, for the occasion, devised a dinner inspired by the fragrances in the collection.

DENTELLE SATIN RUBIS BRACELET SAVOIR-FAIRE

Discover the secrets of the Dentelle Satin Rubis bracelet, created for the Dior Dior Dior collection by Victoire de Castellane. 

Through assembling of multiple chaton settings - the claws that hold the precious stones – that, for this exceptional piece, the craftsman jeweler has developed an openwork pattern evoking the spirals found in lace. This creation was conceived to lap the curves of the wrist. As a result, it has more than a hundred distinct elements, some of which have been hidden to give the impression that its structure is composed of a single frame. Almost like couture, each of the gems seem to have been sewn into place, integrating harmoniously with the jewel’s volume. Requiring nine different setting techniques, the bracelet features rose-cut diamonds that, like sequins, shimmer and sparkle to the rhythm of the movements. It is an accomplishment, pushing the limits of the savoir-faire of excellence, that required no less than 1200 hours of work in the House’s ateliers.
