“I became a perfume designer so that the simple act of opening a bottle would call to mind my dresses and gowns, and so that every woman who wears my creations can leave behind her a fragrant trail of desire:” Christian Dior. To celebrate 60 years at the top, Dior have launched La Collection Particulière: three new, high-fashion fragrances that pay homage to the late, great Christian Dior himself.

Drawing on the maison’s rich heritage, the bottles revive the first amphora designed by Fernand Guerycolas in Baccarat crystal, created for their debut fragrance, Miss Dior, in 1947.

Each perfume has its own muse - the model beauties for whom Dior created his Corolle collection in the 50s and bear tribute to his love of garden florals; light, white tuberose, the bluest flowers of iris and violet, and rose. Each bottle is numbered as a couture gown on the Paris runway, garnet red and opaline white.
