Dior Gris Dior (formerly Gris Montaigne) is part of the Floral Collection. Worshiped as the queens of flowers, these blooms reign majestically over these fragrances. Sweet jasmine, sensual rose and seductive tuberose procure instant pleasure. Fragrances in this collection include Grand Bal, La Colle Noire, Gris Dior, Jasmin des Anges and New Look 1947.
Gris Dior was created by perfumer Francois Demachy. Christian Dior had a mad love affair with grey - the iconic pink and gray houndstooth check is what I think of first when you say Christian Dior. Demachy created Gris Montaigne as a tribute to Dior's history, A chypre, Francois Demachy wanted it to be a "legendary perfume accord and to reinterpret the accord of Monsieur Dior's very first fragrance, as it could have been today".
It features notes of bergamot, rose, patchouli, amber, cedarwood, sandalwood and oakmoss. It is a rose encased in gray, the constraints of it make it soar into easily one of my favorite rose perfumes that doesn't really feel like a rose perfume. Just elegant and stunning simplicity. Gris Dior is an eau de parfum, edp.
Dior’s luxury fragrance line La Collection Privée has been reimagined for 2018, offering a new way for you to be dressed in Dior. Rebranded as Maison Christian Dior, it goes beyond a collection of fragrances to become a somewhat ritualistic concept; that of perfuming and embellishing spaces and moments in your life. “When I create perfumes I flout technical constraints, schedules, fashions and trends,” Demachy explains of his artistic process. The fragrances in this collection are formed in families of Orientals, Florals, Sensuals, Light Florals and Fruity Florals, non-specific to gender but without being labelled ‘unisex’.
Reviews of Dior Gris Dior
From Influenster - "y love since 3years Dior Gris Dior is a very subtle and sofisticated scent this profusion of colors inspired a composition that blends jasmine and bergamot with humide notes of undergrowth..i still use it"
From Bois de Jasmin - "I probably wouldn’t describe Gris Montaigne as grey and pink if I were to smell it blindly, but the choice of delicate rose and earthy woods makes for a polished fragrance. It’s noticeable without being loud, but it has enough character to be memorable. Gris Montaigne is a pile of wood shavings drenched in rosewater, with just enough mossy, wet soil notes to keep this pastel number from becoming too prim and proper."
From Perfume Posse - "Beautiful, elegant, it’s the Dior pink ball gown floomped in the corner after one too many glass of champagne, but you’re not quite ready to go home yet."
