Maison Dior Fragrances

If you followed my Instagram stories last week, you may have noticed that I spent a cheeky lunch hour at the the Rosewood Hotel Georgia previewing the exclusive new Dior fall/winter beauty collection.

Not only are these beautiful products coming into stores across North America at the moment, but many are limited-edition and are stunning to give as holiday gifts!

I’ve focused on three collections for this feature: Maison Christian Dior, Dior Midnight Wish 2018 Holiday Collection, and Dior Backstage.

Maison Christian Dior collection

Maison Christian Dior

We had the chance to smell some of Maison Dior’s newly-launched line of fragrance as well as perfumed soaps and candles.

Dior parfum Lucky

From Grasse to Paris, Dior Master Perfumer François Demachy benefits from the finest flowers and the rarest ingredients to nourish his boundless creativity. His fragrances are pictorial, sensual and dedicated to a love of raw materials, as well as being evocative of the Dior world. There’s a vibrant story behind each scent.

Soft pink Rose Gipsy is an ode to Grasse’s queen of flowers; sparkling green Lucky reveals a modern Lily of the Valley that is somewhat hidden; golden Jasmin des Anges is a call for self-indulgence, while soft violet Dioramour is like a powdered caress. And when asked to describe Maison Christian Dior, Demachy delivers an answer of two words: “Shared emotions”.

The candles offer 70-hours of gorgeous scent, crafted by world-renowned French wax manufacturers Perron Right and housed in a Limoges porcelain pot with a Dior grey enamel interior. Newcomers to the lineup are Jardin d’Orangers and Figue Méditerranée, together with 30 Montaigne, Bois Brûlé and several more luscious scents to choose from.

As for the soaps, crafted in France at the Savonnerie de Haute-Provence, there are three scents – Rose Ispahan, Néroli Impérial and Amande Délicieuse – with more to be added in the future.

Limited Edition 2018 Collection

We were also introduced to the Dior Midnight Wish 2018 Holiday Collection, a limited-edition seasonal colour cosmetics collection inspired by Christian Dior’s fascination with luck and destiny. Designed by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director at Dior Makeup, the lineup features glimmering blushes, jewel-toned lipsticks, eye shadows and sparkling nail shades made for elegant winter soirées.

Philips also developed two Brow Palettes into which he slipped a setting wax and two powder shadows. Dark has warm shades (two chocolate tones plus one rosy wax); Light (two shades of cappuccino) is great for structuring lighter brows.
