You have to realize that I never knew my grandfather, who was the founder of Parfums Christian Dior. [...] Obviously Diorling, Diorama, Eau Fraiche — which is a very nice fragrance — and Diorissimo, which is of course probably the best of that bunch, were made between my grandfather and Monsieur [Edmond] Roudnitska. My mother worked with him on Eau Sauvage and on a very, very good fragrance called Diorella. It didn’t enjoy the same success [as the others] but it is one of the best fragrances ever released by Dior. So working with Roudnitska for me — and it wasn’t really working with him because he had already passed away when we launched it — and connecting with Madame Roudnitska was very emotional for me.
