February 12, 1947. In his salons at 30, avenue Montaigne, Christian Dior presented his very first collection. His sensual creations celebrated triumphant femininity: this was the birth of a revolution, dubbed the New Look. To accompany these cutting-edge looks, the couturier commissioned perfumer Paul Vacher to create a modern and sophisticated fragrance: "Make me a perfume that smells of love", he requested. Sprayed abundantly in the salons on the day of the fashion show, Miss Dior became the perfume of the New Look. This elegant green chypre – a subtle balance of citrus fruits, flowers and patchouli – expressed a new femininity, free and independent, able to break free from traditional codes.
