Gris Dior is a signature fragrance that is now more than ever closely tied to the history of Dior Couture. The fragrance is the olfactory expression of the Dior gray, the now-iconic colour Christian Dior loved to celebrate: the couture gray, the sentimental gray of the couturier's family home in Granville, Normandy, and the pearl gray of the shopfront on Avenue Montaigne.
"What if the Dior gray were a fragrance? This emphatic gray is not merely a mix of black and white, but the result of a chromatic blend. This profusion of colours inspired a composition that melds Jasmine and Bergamot with notes of humid undergrowth. Colour is transformed into an emblematic fragrance. Its lively scent is multifaceted and effortlessly elegant."
François Demachy, Parfumeur-Créateur Dior
Multi-faceted, Gris Dior is a subtle and elegant olfactory signature. An elegant fragrance that uninhibitedly combines heritage with a modern twist.
Like the colour gray, the fragrance Gris Dior cannot be broken down into its component parts. It is an indivisible mix, the seamless reading of a chypre.
Gray is such an evocative colour for François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, he proclaims that "Chypre is the gray of the perfume family."
Floral. Gris Dior is a fragrance that unfurls with citrus top notes enveloped in a floral accord and set against a backdrop of ambery moss.
Gris Dior is an intense fragrance that makes a strong, recognizable statement, always with elegance, and leaves a compelling trail.
