Dior Beauty – The label, known for its extravagant women’s haute couture, can do much more than create breathtaking gowns. The label has also been active in the cosmetics sector since 1947. It was then that Christian Dior created the first fragrance to underline his fashion lines. The designer was a true fragrance fan and even moved his holiday escape to Grasse. The city in the south of France is world famous for perfume production. Since back then, a lot has happened in regards of beauty products at Dior. The label no longer only offers perfumes, but has expanded its range to include skin care and make-up products.
Dior Parfum: The right fragrances for women
We have already mentioned above that Dior’s fashion is closely linked to fragrances. Now we would like to introduce to you the fragrances, popular all over the world. The label not only pays attention to the quality of the fragrances themselves, but also claims that this quality is also reflected in the design of the flacons.
Dior Poison Collection: Poison, Hypnotic Poison, Poison Girl & Co.
The Dior Poison collection is an absolute classic. The fragrances surround the wearer with an attractive scent cloud. The bottle design is reminiscent of a crisp, red love apple. But the name already suggests that this apple is not just sweet and sticky. After the fragrance, established in 1998, became very popular, the Poison series was expanded more and more. Today there are a variety of scents included in the Poison collection:
- Hypnotic Poison
- Poison Girl
- Poison Girl unexpected
- Pure Poison
The classic of the Hypnotic Poison series is not only offered as a perfume, but also as a deodorant, body lotion and hair perfume. In addition, the fragrances can also be purchased in different sizes.
Perfum Dior Poison fragrance: Scent nuances
The sweet scent combination that makes the fragrance so unique and has contributed significantly to the success of the original perfume is complemented by further nuances in the successors. In the core, however, all of them carry the following notes within themselves:
- Almond (sweet-bitter)
- Yasmin (oriental-floral)
- Vanilla (sweet-creamy)
Poison Girl represents the fresher, more youthful little sister of the classic Poison fragrance. This claim is underlined by the fragrance components:
- bitter orange (citric-bitter)
- rose (floral)
- tonka bean (warm and spicy)
In the Unexpected version, bitter orange is replaced by ginger in the fragrance structure, which results in a slightly more spicy scent.
Pure Poison stands out in the collection above all because, unlike the other essences, it appears in a mother-of-pearl-coloured bottle, thus stepping out of line. Pure Poison has less sweet components, bringing a little freshness to the lines of the collection:
- bergamot (citric)
- orange blossom (floral-tart)
- white musk (synthetic)
Warm and spicy, fruity, oriental. The Poison fragrances have claimed to unite unusual notes and thus represent perfumes that give self-confidence. The last fragrance of the Poison series also falls into this category.
- coriander (oriental-spicy)
- Tuberose (flowery)
- Opoponax (resinous)

A captivating, warm atmosphere with crackling fire in a gloomy setting. This is the impression Hypnotic Poison is intended to leave. This atmosphere is captured here. Let yourself be carried away into the sensual world of Dior perfume and experience this fragrance in a completely unexpected way.
J’adore Dior: Flowery fragrance explosion for women
A fragrance series that comes in a sensual, curvy bottle. The gold rings around the neck of the bottle are also not unfamiliar to the beholder. They should remind us of the gold rings around the necks of women from many different ethnic groups. For example the Massai or the Padaung women wear a variety of gold rings around their necks, because on the one hand they symbolise femininity, but on the other hand they are also rites which are supposed to lead to a particularly beautiful appearance. This is exactly what the J’adore fragrance is meant to achieve. Part of a ritual that reminds women to carry their beauty to the outside. Not only through visual stimuli, but also in the form of fragrances. The path to the goal is paved by these scents:
- Ylang-Ylang (sweet-floral)
- rose (floral)
- Jasmine (oriental-floral)
Ylang-ylang is known for its endorphin stimulating and therefore positive effect. Especially as one of the main notes, ylang-ylang is not very often used in the perfume industry and thus contributes to the uniqueness of J’adore. François Demachy, perfume creator at Diors, says about the fragrance:
“J’adore invents a flower that doesn’t exist.”
Video Dior J’adore: Star Charlize Theron as model
Since 2014, Oscar winner Charlize Theron has been the face of the J’adore commercial. As a goddess in gold she presents the extraordinary fragrance and stands for the strong, powerful but also sensual wearer. She embodies self-confidence, strength, sensuality and the modern, feminine woman. Let Dior and Charlize take you into the world of fragrances in this commercial.
Miss Dior: Blooming Bouquet & Rose’n’Roses
This fragrance bears the title of the first perfume created by Christian Dior. Although it has undergone many changes in recent decades, the essence of Dior is still prevalent. The fragrance is meant to celebrate and accentuate the female curves. This achieved by combining:
- rose (floral)
- bergamot (citric)
- rosewood (subtle-woody)
Flowers followed by warm wood makes this fragrance special. Such a successful fragrance as Miss Dior is of course always checked for topicality. As a result, sometimes new fragrances are created that retain the essence of the classic. Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is one of them:
- peony (flowery)
- bergamot (citric)
- white musk (synthetic)
Because the standard version of the fragrance didn’t have enough rose in it already, Dior has decided on putting even more rose in a single fragrance. Hence, Miss Dior Rose ‘n Roses was created. Cleverly broken up, the flowers are married with citrus notes:
- rose (flowery)
- bergamot and mandarin (citric-sweet)
- white musk (synthetic)
