...the “Escales de Dior” collection continues its journey. Today, the Orient glides by on an exotic passage to India. The former trading post of the French East India Company, Pondicherry is the new destination for Parfums Christian Dior.
Above all, the spirit of these new fragrances is expressed through the link between the raw materials and the chosen destinations, true sources of inspiration and lands of culture. While a Mediterranean and citrus breeze fluttered over Portofino, now François Demachy, Perfumer-Creator for Dior, has chosen India and its exceptional ingredients: jasmine, sandalwood and tea, with its flourishing plantations and varieties on the Indian peninsula. The perfumer has selected a black tea enwrapped in a fresh and light signature that harmonizes with a spirit of happy insouciance.
Additional notes include cardamom.
Christian Dior Escale à Pondichéry will launch in June, but is not expected in the US until July. It will be available in 75 and 125 ml Eau de Toilette. (via tfwa)
