Dioressence Perfume by Christian Dior, Soothing, sensual and effortlessly feminine, Dioressence by French design house Christian Dior is a sophisticated oriental chypre-floral fragrance that projects dauntless grace. The opening is a brisk, airy fusion of aldehydes, citrus and spice, mingling blended fruits, sparkling orange, bergamot and a comforting patchouli accord that persists through the dry down. This bright, energetic introduction quickly settles into a warm, radiant floral heart of redrose, jasmine blossom, ylang-ylang, tuberose, carnation, geranium, violet and orris root. Oak moss and vetiver merged with benzoin and styrax produce an irresistible vanilla musk finish. Dioressence was designed by perfumer Guy Robert and first released in 1969.
Christian Dior was born in the seaside town of Granville, France, in 1905. He established his famous fashion house in 1946. The brand's first fragrance, Miss Dior, was named for the designer's sister, Catherine, and released in 1947. The company has since created over 200 perfumes and colognes, including international bestsellers Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming, Poison Girl, Hypnotic Poison, J'adore, J'adore in Joy and Sauvage.
