A floral bouquet often accompanies women through their rites of passage, such as weddings or christenings. Keeping this in mind, Dior, at the dawn of the third millenium, has created J’Adore in the spirit of a large bouquet. The sophistication of the floral notes contributes to the image of Diorness, that spirit of elegance and attention that characterizes Dior Haute Couture.
Calice Becker wanted to create a luminous, cheerful, confident and determined floral bouquet. She mixed various flowers such as the champaca (a type of magnolia from India with a fresh, fruity, exotic fragrance), the violet from France and the crystallized orchid…The end note is a combination of amaranth wood, similar to the carnation but softer and woodier, along with a note of Banyuls wine and candied plum.
Designed by Hervé Van Der Straeten, the perfume bottle for J’Adore resembles an amphora, a jar both ancient, modern and timeless… The symbolic shape of its long, golden neck evokes a precious Masai necklace. A Crystal cap tops the bottle. The name of the perfume is hidden in the eye of the crystal like an exclamation point: “J’Adore!”
