Have you tried any of the scents from the Dior La Collection Privée? They are exclusive fragrances for men and women created for the house of Dior by it’s perfume creator, Francois Demarchy.
Dior describes them
‘A collection of rare, authentic, refined fragrances for both men and women, composed with noble and rigorously selected ingredients. These are true olfactory creations, with a flower at the heart of each…’
I do love the French penchant for drama… a fragrance that is ‘noble’… ‘ a flower that is at the heart’… it does make them sound most appealing… They are very lovely and so far I have sampled Cologne Royale…a gorgeous scent for the men… in the feel of Eau Sauvage… with a hint of Sicilian Lemon and Italian Neroli.
Milly La-Forêt , one I am seriously tempted by, is named after Dior’s country escape outside of Paris in Milly La Forêt. This scent is reminiscent of a romantic stroll through the forest… with notes of orange blossom, jasmine and iris.
But… New Look 1947 might be the one for me…. 1947 was the year that Christian Dior held his first fashion show in Paris and it was there that Dior was hailed as ‘a new look’… This is a highly floral fragrance with Indian tuberose, Turkish rose and Jasmine… As a lover of tuberose… I think I this could just be me.
There are ten perfumes in all… and the packaging is superb… The bottles are very simple and elegant with beautifully engraved black lids… the problem will be choosing only one fragrance… As I understand, La Collection Privée is only available in Paris and London… so if you are in Europe try some samples and at the same time make sure to ask for the little white illustrated booklet describing each of the scents.
