Christian Dior loved to relax and go back to his home in Milly-La-Foret where the entire area was surrounded only by flowers, canals, and a small pond. It’s the place where he could find peace away from high society Parisian life, the place where he could find serenity, tranquility, and quietness.
The La Collection Privee Christian Dior Milly-La-Foret is an encapsulation of the floral garden from Dior’s hometown.
Milly-La-Foret comes in a long circular matte white box with the perfume nested snugly inside. The bottle is a clear and transparent in design with a pleated black lacquered cap. It’s quite cool since the cap has magnetic mechanism that makes a “clicking” sound when closed.
The fragrance contains the following notes:
Top Note: Mandarin
Heart Note: Neroli
Base Note: White Musk
The scent itself brings a very clean scent of floral with a bit of sweetness from the mandarin. You will notice the mandarin once you spray it but after a bit of time elapsed, the scent evened out to a blast of floral. If you go another 10 minutes, the floral scent feels simply pure serene and relaxing. I did sense a hint of jasmine in the background which isn’t overpowering at all but still blended in beautifully. I can imagine why Dior wanted to escape the city life to his garden because the scent is so fresh yet calming.
Dior Milly-La-Foret is a luxurious bottle of perfume that lasts for hours bringing floral and sweetness. Upfront you will notice the orangey and citrusy like scent but it wanes out while introducing its floral notes. The hand-crafted perfume bottle is simple, classy and elegant. Topping it off with a modern magnetic cap and white embossed label, the overall look is truly luxurious.
Milly-La-Foret is available online exclusively at www.Dior.com or at the boutique in Las Vegas (702) 369-6072.
