Notes: Distinguishing itself from other rose-scented perfumes, Dior La Colle Noire opens with a rounded honeyed rose scent, distilled from Rose de Mai and cultivated at the cradle of perfumery in Grasse, France. Accented with Madagascar cloves, the spiciness adds warmth to the initial soft notes and closes with the sensual Sri Lankan sandalwood and musk.
Did You Know? This beautiful namesake fragrance is inspired by the late Christian Dior’s haven of peace, Château de la Colle Noire. Monsieur Dior adored flowers immensely: “After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world.” It is also here in this quiet sanctuary where he personally tended to beds of perfumed flowers, growing jasmine, roses, lavender, and other crops until his untimely death in 1957.
In the Head of François Demachy: As the nose behind this composition, Demachy paid tribute to the raw and hardy micro-valley of Pays de Fayence. Holding many of Monsieur Dior’s fond memories at the château, Dior La Colle Noire is a faithful and personal declaration of his love to the region.
