MISS DIOR EAU DE PARFUM


The name of the great couturier Christian Dior is a synonym for art of perfume and fashion, a man who, fascinated by women and flowers, proclaimed: “After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world.” With the aim of composing the fragrance which will make women who wear it distinguishable and believing that a scent tells more about the woman then her hand writing, Dior has embedded flowers in his wonderful perfumes. As with his designs he tried to beautify women, he wanted them to smell divine as well. “Perfume is the indispensable compliment to the personality of women, the finishing touch on a dress.” Together with his first New Look collection which enchanted and leaved the world breathless, he presented a perfume that is equally delightful 70 years later and doesn’t descend from the throne of the best: Miss Dior Eau de Parfum. The reason is elementary - a perfume that smells like love will disappear from this world only if love itself disappears.

Name of this beautiful perfume that has rose in its heart, smells like love and happiness and bear its title so elegantly and sensually, is inspired by a woman who spent a year in concentration camp. During the Second world war, while Christian was designing attire and dressed the ladies from Parisian high society, his sister Catherine joined French Resistance and was arrested by Gestapo in 1944. Although her brother invested every effort to save her through his clients, everyone was reluctant to involve themselves in a case that Nazis would interpret as “treason”. Dior, having no information of a sister detained at Ravensbrück camp, lived in anxiety, fear and uncertainty more then a year, until he finally, by the end of the war, learned that she is free in Paris. Catherine later went to live in the south of France, where the government granted her housing as a compensation for all the horrors she experienced. She was a prisoner for a year, yet her face looked ten years older. But she didn’t want to waste any time on hate and vengeance. On the contrary, she devoted herself to the pursuit of beauty and happiness in life. Her brother had similar thoughts in 1947. while he was preparing his initial fashion show and when he, instead of strict lines preferred by other designers, resolve to offer a collection that celebrates the gift of life, happiness, beauty and elegance with a wake of luxury. He also considered that people in these difficult times seek “something more”, so he wished to present a perfume that would follow his creations. His legendary sentence to perfumers Jean Charles and Paul Vacher still echoes: “Make me a fragrance that smells like love.”

And they did, they devised a perfume rooted in lulled Provencal evenings fraught with fireflies, with a whiff of green jasmine as an equilibrium of the night and Earth melodies. Dior has stated:“For a long-lasting perfume, it needs to be loved for a long time by those who created it.” Miss Dior is a scent that Christian cherished and nurtured long before its revelation. The only thing that was missing was the name, and how it came to him is a very interesting story. He pondered several options, until one day his sister entered salon in Avenue Montagne 30 and his friend and muse Mitzah Bricard exclaimed: “Oh, miss Dior is here!” In that exact moment everything became sensible and the iconic perfume was created, the scent of boldness, renewal and freedom, the fragrance of love and the force of life.

First Miss Dior, inducted in 1947., contained notes of gardenia, bergamot, rose and jasmine, the same flowers that grew in the gardens where Dior’s family spent their summers of which charming memories remained. Nowadays François Demachy, the perfumer of house Dior, weaved fresh and sensuous rose cut like the dazzling ball gown. “I refined the florality of Miss Dior Eau de Parfum to render it sensual and suggestive. It had to burst like that feeling of falling head over heels. A declaration of love, to love!” New Miss Dior expose femininity and sensuality, its soul is a flowery parole of a combination of pulchritude and audacity of the Grasse and Damascus roses, entwined and refreshed by flows of Calabrian bergamot, wreathed by rosewood from French Guiana and pink pepper from Reunion Island. Its exalted character will pierce you with love, shuffle your emotions and express your personality. Vibrant rose chords are pulsing at the very core of all Miss Dior perfumes: Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Absolutely Blooming and Blooming Bouquet. I adore each of them evenly! Every mentioning of this perfume pictures a rose in front of my eyes. As petals that gradually open up and unveil their graceful fairness, it is likewise gentle, lightweight, supple and layered. However, when the story behind the name and the person who served as an inspiration, as well as her strength and life is more closely studied, the rose flower is completed by a thorny stem that stings and whittles anyone who approach it. Also, understanding the circumstances that emerged it, thorns may depict the war from which originates a desire for life, happiness and contrivance of something beautiful – a sublime and fragrant rose that symbolizes love.

Roses are my dearest and favorite flowers and every perfume with that scent captures me thoroughly. That’s why I’m unable to describe how much I love it! If some perfume can delineate a person, this one unmistakably adumbrate me, it’s my trade mark, reflect my personality and spirit and I can wear it in all seasons. Rectangular bottle made of transparent glass with a silver bow on the stopper which provides a dose of muliebrity and discernible authenticity, is so uncomplicatedly classy and sumptuous and a perfect silhouette of Dior’s mastery artwork.

I bought the perfume in Christmas gift set and along with it gotten a Moisturizing Body Lotion of identical aroma in alluring box. Its texture is supremely soft, it smears easily and absorbs quickly, producing a strong odor because of which I received compliments and inquiries as to what perfume I’m using, although I only had a body lotion at that instance. I’m of judgement that they smell more intensely in relation to perfumes, while simultaneously hydrating and smoothing the skin.

With the launch of the perfume a campaign was initiated in which by every post on Instagram that uses #DiorLoveChain one US dollar will be donated to We Movement, a charity organization that ensures education, food, clean water, health care and economic boost to all those in dire need. In that way house Dior indefinitely prolonges the tradition commenced in 1947. by its founder – to make the world a better and nicer place.

That latest strive is a true testimony of love and its promoter Natalie Portman challenges us to join her in a swirl of emotions and invites us to answer the question: what are you willing to do for love? When I read it I remembered an old tale. Once upon a time lived with his spouse a very poor man. One day his wife, who had long and beautiful hair, asked him to buy her a comb so she could keep it neat. Though he felt biting sadness in his heart he had to refuse, explaining that he doesn’t have enough money even to repair his worn-out wrist watch band. The woman accepted it silently and didn’t insist any further. When he went to work he walked past the clockmaker’s shop and decided to sell his damaged watch at low price and purchase the comb for his beloved. In the evening he returned home holding a comb in his hand, but was immensely surprised when he saw his wife with a short hair holding a new band in her hand. She sold her hair so she could buy a watch bracelet for her husband. They wept at the same time, but not because of futility of their actions, but because of the power of their mutual love. To love is nothing, to be loved is something, but to love and be loved by a person you love, that’s everything. Such is love, never goes out of style. As Dior himself said: “Enthusiasm for life and love are the secrets of all beauty.”

  29. What an interesting story behind this gorgeous perfume. I had no idea Dior's sister was held captive during the WW2, but it's great she was able to leave the horrors aside and help her brother in creating something beautiful. This perfume certainly sounds dreamy. Miss Dior's bottle is so gorgeous.
