Christian Dior

Picture of Christian Dior

Dior was born 21st January 1905 in Granville, Normandy and died on 23rd October 1957 from a heart attack while on holiday in Italy.

In 1928, when Dior left school he sold his clothing design’s from outside his house until he started a small arts studio selling different artists work but this closed down due to Dior having financial trouble due to the deep economic depression that engulfed the business world in the late 1920’s  as being the main cause.

In 1937 he was employed by Robert Piquet who was a well-known fashion designer. When the second World War started he joined up.

But not for long due to the French capitulation to the Germans, but he was able to continue his work in France at Lelong Co on being released.
In 1946.

The House of Dior was established at a private residence with Marcel Boussac who was a wealthy business man. The House of Dior actually celebrate the opening of the company as 1947 not 1946.

The reason behind this is because the first line of clothing was released on 12th February that year.


Francois Demachy

Although Francois Demachy was training to be a Doctor and Dentist he actually became a perfumer by accident while working for perfume giant Charabot just to earn extra money for his studies to become a doctor.

He decided that he couldn’t do both so luckily Charabot were looking for trainee perfumers and so then it all started. After 5 years with the company he was offered a position at Chanel  where he worked till he became a Director at Dior in 2006.

Fragrance Wheel

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

Dior J`adore gives you a scent of sharpness due to the floral fragrance of mandarin, jasmine and rose but will mellow out during the day.

This is another fragrance that you must try before buying, the perfume suits some people better than others due to your individual skin type but still a great fragrance for us.

Romance is in the air!

Public Reviews

  • This is a really beautiful perfume. It has a sweet, floral, romantic smell that is not too overpowering, and is suitable for both day and night. The packaging is classy and elegant, making it suitable for most ages. It’s long lasting, so I definitely think it’s worth the splurge and will be repurchasing
  • I love J’adore.  I loved it when it first came out in 1999 and I love it now.  I’ll probably always love it.  It’s fresh, clean, a bit fruity, ultra feminine. I’ve seen some reviews that say it smells like shampoo.  You know what?  It does a bit!  But that doesn’t bother me in the slightest. This scent just makes me happy and makes me feel good.  That’s what perfume is all about so J’adore is a stunning success, in my opinion.
  • J’Adore is French for love… and I j’adore this fragrance! J’adore is a stunning and timeless floral scent that turns heads and infuses your senses with a bouquet of Roses, African Orchids, Damascus Plum and Violets. It is perfect for the warmer months when Dior Midnight Poison is a little too rich and indulgent. J’adore is sexy, feminine, and above all romantic.
  • J’Adore EDP is one of the most beautiful fragrances I have discovered to date and I will always have a bottle on hand because I honestly feel lost without it. Even during my early pregnancy when all other scents and aromas would make me feel ill, I could rely on J’Adore to uplift my mood and make me feel a little better within myself. I love this fragrance so much that I am crushing on the newest addition to the J’Adore range, J’Adore L’absolue.

Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.

Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?

Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advise would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.
