Dior Perfume - Stop the Presses

 


Dior Scents - Limited Sets




"A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting." - Christian Dior


Christian Dior on February 12, 1947, became a sensation in Paris, with his debut haute couture collection. His dress designs used yards of luxurious fabrics, emphasized a woman's silhouette, a cinched waist, with lowered hemlines.   Dior revolutionized the fashion industry after the war torn years of WWII. When survival was paramount, fashion was not top of mind for women. Yet, after years of darkness and grief the world was awakening again to hope and joy.  Like spring flowers opening to new beginnings. Winter was definitely over.

Dior opened Pandora's box by creating the iconic collection of all time that took the industry by storm.  The designs left everyone wanting more and were ordered in quantity.  Conversely, change that comes with fashion sent some women's heads spinning.  Many women around the world protested this new look, which was unbeknownst to me.  They thought the hems were too long and the outfits emphasized a shapely silhouette.  To their detriment, Dior prevailed then and now. 

Where did I get this information?  I just finished another incredible book, The Three Lives of Alix St. Pierre, by Natasha Lester. Her historical fiction works are unforgettable and are page turners.  In this particular novel, the infamous collection under Maison Dior is aptly described in the yet to be House of Dior.  Of course, this is only one faction of the story.  Rather the novel is about Hollywood, Switzerland and the Resistance, spies, WWII and friendships and love.   However, I did enjoy the historical outlay of Dior. 

What does this have to do with perfume? Why everything! The House of Dior has created several beautiful scents that are memorable.  My current favorite is Miss Dior, which was developed for Christian Dior's sister, Catherine in 1947.  It was Dior's first perfume and today is a standout.  The floral bouquet of rose, lily, peony and woods makes the scent divine.  It lasts too.  Of course, I enjoy several  J'adore too. 

There are a few gift sets for Mothers Day available.  These gift sets are beautifully designed with a handcrafted bow made of 346 threads.  The box is a limited-edition inspired by Dior's childhood home designed by Pietro Ruffo.  The flowers were a mural on a wall in his home.   Magnificent.  One caveat - always purchase perfume.  

NO LINKS - Go Directly to Macy's or Nordstrom.  Nordstrom has sold out.  Macy's is on SALE.  I do NOT receive a small compensation for this.
