When perfumer Francis Kurkdjian joined Parfums Christian Dior as its perfume creation director in October 2021, his first order of business was to re-edit a trio of fragrances. The very ones that were created during his first engagement with Dior in 2004.
The triptych of complementary scents, Bois d’Argent, Cologne Blanche and Eau Noire, were first conceived as a perfect silhouette for the La Collection Privée Christian Dior universe, the private line of perfumes inspired by the heritage of the French fashion house.
Spot a returning favourite in the line-up? The trio have been revisited, polished to perfection and will be re-issued at the end of the month in their beautiful natural colours.
Keeping the magic and remaining as elegant as the originals, here’s what to expect from the re-edition of scents that each showcase an emblematic flower.
First up, Bois d’Argent, revered for its addictive skin-to-skin experience, will pull you into a comforting hug. Set on a warm amber base, the richly powdered iris is contrasted with a mystical frankincense note to arouse desire and curiosity.
Cologne Blanche returns as a more modern edition that will set hearts racing. Still gracing the wearer with flawless elegance, look forward to luminous orange blossom paired with an intense powdery violet accord and sensual amber for a talcum caress that stays close to the skin.
Lastly, Eau Noire that now displays a lovely honey-tinged hue. Its heart follows a trio of lavender absolutes and essences and is now heightened with myrrh and a sensual gourmand liquorice accord for a contemporary blend that’s chic, mysterious and intense.
If you can’t wait to catch a whiff of the re-edition of these 3 classics, you’ll be able to discover them together as part of a limited series box set (SGD540).
Presented in a white signature box, each set comes with a 40 ml size of each scent and will be available from 27 June 2022 exclusively online via the brand’s e-store.
Alternatively, the re-edition of Bois d’Argent, Cologne Blanche and Eau Noire will be available in 40 ml (SGD180), 125 ml (SGD370), and 250 ml (SGD550) formats at the La Collection Privée Christian Dior boutique at ION Orchard and via the Dior Beauty online boutique from September 2022.
