Why are Dior perfumes so highly in demand and what makes them special?
Christian Dior perfumes are targeted to chic young women (and their young men), who want beautiful scents as well made as the haute couture clothing. The Dior perfume company wisely used the brand name in the title of many of its fragrances as it brought designer cache without a hefty price tag. Fine ingredients and the highest standard of luxury continue to be the hallmarks of Dior.
Let’s look at eleven of our favorites:
1947 was the year when the young fashion designer Christian Dior launched his revolutionary couture collection on the Paris runway. It was also the year, he famously asked Perfumer Jean Carles, “to make me a fragrance that smells like love” … and the bright floral Miss Dior was born. Really rosy and sweet, Miss Dior is punctuated by pink pepper, and three juicy oranges: blood orange, sweet orange mandarin as well as lemon and bergamot. Damask rose and Grasse rose are the stars and are blended with jasmine and soft woods.

Absolutely Blooming has delightful notes of sweet/tart red berries, Grasse rose absolute and a peony accord that creates a captivating and beautiful perfume. Perfect for special events, romantic evenings, or night-outs with the girls, the scent has a sexy, youthful, and fun attitude.
