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 couturiers 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.
-Christian Dior TOP NOTE
GALBANUM HEART NOTE
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 is one of the components of the heart note of Miss Dior. BASE NOTE
Patchouli is a plant originally from 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.
