Miss Dior: First Dior Perfume
Christian Dior said: “Make me a fragrance that smells love”. And his wishes became orders.
We will tell you the history of this mythical perfume.
Miss Dior: Origin
Maison Dior was born in 1947. The same year, Dior launched his innovative collection of Haute Couture called “New Look”. Changes were underway … and those changes had the form of perfume: Miss Dior.
The fragrance name arose from the appearance of the designer sister, Missy Dior in Christian Dior workshop and the exclamation he made at introducing her: “Voilà Miss Dior!”
Thus, Miss Dior was born, the first Dior perfumes, the perfume of love. Created by perfumers Jean Carles and Paul Vacher, it is the proof of his great love of flowers made fragrance and reflected in its notes.
“I have created this perfume to cover each woman in an exquisite femininity, as if each of my designs emerged from its bottle”
Despite its essence and spirit have been kept up over the years, Miss Dior bottle was not always of that square simplicity. Originally, the perfume had the shape of a stylized amphora, imitating the female wavy lines that the designer made fashionable with his collection “New look”.
Some years later, in 1950, the bottle took the square shape we all know, based on Dior men dress designing, that he loved so much, with a Poignard bow in the neck as a symbol of Haute Couture.
Recently, perfumer François Demachy updated the fragrance image creating a new olfactory family: green Chypre. “Chypre is the emblematic figure in the world of Haute Perfumery. Well-blended floral, citrus and woody notes create a strong alliance of different essences being altogether in perfect harmony.” Miss Dior formula became, in turn, Miss Dior Originale.
Dior wanted to compare the world of perfumes with fashion, creating the scent of elegance and femininity of his designs:
“I created this perfume to wrap each woman in an exquisite femininity, as if each of my dresses, one by one, emerged from a bottle.”
He did it and now we are happy because, some decades later we keep on enjoying this perfume jewel and we offer it on our online perfume shop to all the fragrance lovers.new image of Miss Dior, embodies the freshness, elegance and sensuality of the mythical perfume in the new spot shot by Sofía Coppola.
