Poison, Miss Dior, J’Adore, Diorissimo, and Miss Dior Original – are signature Dior fragrances have been interpreted by Dior Perfume Creator Francois Demanchy in a new fragrance range known as Les Extraits. Les Extraits, are an ode to the most beautiful raw materials and the best in perfume making, very much like the couture of perfumery. Ingredients used in the range include Dior’s Rose de Mai Absolute, an ancient rose grown exclusively in the Grasse region of southern France. This rose has a full-bodied, powdery scent with hints of honey and pepper, and is cultivated exclusively for Dior.
The concentrated perfume comes in 15ml miniature perfume bottles that are made with exceptional craftsmanship, each bottles resemble a precious miniature of the original design. Each Extrait bottle also uses the art of baudruchage, which is a traditional technique of sealing the bottle neck with a natural membrane (baudruche) that is then held in place by thin gold or silver thread to ensure the bottle is air and watertight.
