This new feminine fragrance from Dior arrived on the market at the end of October 2010, was designed by the Dior perfume creator since 2006, Francois Demachy and belongs to the oriental floral olfactory group. As expressed by Dior, “true luxury requires the highest level of ingredients quality and creation”, therefore for the construction of J’Adore L’Or, Demachy employed only the finest ingredients available.
At first sight, the composition might look simple: top notes: rose and jasmine; middle notes: tonka bean and vanilla; base notes: amber, patchouli and French labdanum. Nevertheless, on a deeper analysis, you will notice that the quality of ingredients employed here and their provenience is the thing that turns J’Adore L’Or into a unique luxury scent.
The roses and jasmine used for the base notes are Centifolia rose absolute and Grandiflorum jasmine absolute from Grasse. The provider of the flower extracts is “Domain de Manon”, administered by the same family for 3 generations. And it’s because of facts like this that they have preserved their status as Dior supplier for many years, maintaining the tradition of high quality until present time. The rose petals and jasmine were hand-picked; as a result a delicate floral bouquet is formed which fades away into oriental notes.
The bottle of this creation reminds of exclusivity, the notion embodied by the definition of “Or” (French for gold). The bottle used comes in the shape of an amphora, similar with the original J’Adore, introduced in 1999, except this one exhibits a more honey-like color. The stopper of the bottle was decorated with the identical Masai necklace from the original edition, which was a John Galliano’s idea, except this time the threads have a golden color.
To complete this image, J’Adore L’Or is fronted by the talented actress Charlize Theron, who appears in the ad campaign dressed in a John Galliano dress. The perfume is perfect to emphasize a strong woman who wears it.
