Maison Christian Dior invited me to Paris in the end of November for a glamorous event, in order to celebrate the new fragrance line La Collection Privée. My lovely friend and Dior Manager Christiane Sennlaub organized a very special trip, for a selection of great people and me and hosted a grand evening. She really understands her profession and the day and night was yet again an unforgettable time with Christian Dior.
I was spoilt from the moment I touched ground in Paris – a shuttle took me to one of my favorite hotels in Paris, Le Meurice. It has this special French charm, that you can only find here. In my room I was welcomed by lovely gifts from Christian Dior, accessories and beauty items for the evening which I of course carried on me throughout the happening.
The Maison Christian Dior is the new interpretation this year of Dior’s luxury fragrance line La Collection Privée. It is an amazing and huge collection of scents that will spoil your nose and senses – you can wear it or spread it around your home. It is an entire story of perfume that can fill your life in many beautiful ways.
The artist behind the story is François Demachy, the perfume creator of Christian Dior, and the nose of the brand. The creations vary from lovely candles, soaps in bars or liquid form and body creams. Every scent is so special in itself – made up of most beautiful ingredients. And the design of every bottle or item is very elegant and classy, typical for the house of Christian Dior. On top the collection offers a silk scarf line, honoring Christian Dior’s muse Mitzah Bricard – she always wore a little silk scarf around her wrist.
The promotion of the Maison Christian Dior line is held in most elegant spaces, the Maison Christian Dior apartments. The Pop-up stores are spread all over the world with the leading spot at the Place Vendôme in Paris, where it all took place. I was immediately caught in the stunning place – the decoration was incredible, all the flowers and the great products placed in a stylish and elegant manner.
First there was a shooting with Bunte Magazine and I had the great pleasure of meeting Petra Pfaller, the creative director of Bunte. We had a very nice talk and time together. The entire evening all about the Maison Christian Dior was so special. I also got to talk to the nose of the house, François Demachy, who shared great details about his work and who was just so interesting to talk to. During a delicious dinner I was able to catch up with the other lovely Dior girls and we all had a wonderful time. The ambiance was extraordinary and something you don’t get to do every day.
Thanks to the lovely line of Maison Christian Dior and the amazing organization of Christiane Sennlaub I spent this perfect night in Paris – and I was really spoilt for all my senses – thank you so much for this special experience.
