Miss Dior Original is the very first fragrance by Christian Dior. Its avant-garde green chypre floral accord revolutionized perfume and embodies the perfection of the couturier’s mark. L'Eau de Toilette Originale more gently deploys this bold trail, which has become a great classic. The extreme refinement of the Galbanum notes brings ultimate freshness to its floral heart of Jasmine and Grasse Rose Absolute, while Patchouli Essence gives the fragrance its impertinence.
"I created this perfume to clothe every woman in exquisite femininity, as though each of my gowns were emerging, one by one, from the bottle."
François Demachy, Parfumeur-Créateur Dior
The galbanum plant grows in Iran and Afghanistan. Its gum is harvested by cutting into the roots and is then distilled. The essence obtained blends well with herbaceous and chypre green tones. It brings a touch of impertinence as the top note of Miss Dior.
SAMBAC JASMINE ABSOLUTE
The symbol of soft femininity, jasmine is one of the most commonly used flowers in perfumery. It is so delicate that it alone is a fragrance. Jasmine lavishes an intensely floral heart note on Miss Dior.
INDONESIAN PATCHOULI ESSENCE
Patchouli is a plant native to Indonesia and Malaysia. A key element of the perfumer's palette, its essence is obtained by steam distilling the dried leaves. It is used in chypre, woody and oriental fragrances.
