Looking for a last – minute valentine’s day gift? Maison Christian Dior has just revealed its latest fragrance and it just so happens to be the perfect package. Name Rouge Trafalgar it is inspired by the iconic red designs created by Christian Dior. ‘Translating a color into a perfume is an exercise in style. Even more so when it’s Dior Red, one of our House’s iconic shades’, explains Francois Demachy, Dior’s Perfumer-Creator, ‘For me, this red had to evoke a joyful color, a radiant scarlet red like the outfits designed by Christian Dior.’
Arriving in the house’s signature glass oval bottle, the juice is a blush berry shade reminiscent of a bouquet of flowers. The scent itself is mouth-wearing. Looking to red fruits like cherry, strawberry, and raspberry, Demachy has combined them with the unexpected notes of blackcurrant and grapefruit. In the middle of the fragrance, violet – leaf arrives adding a touch of greenness before wood, patchouli and musk round it off. The result is almost like a fruit punch, juicy, sweet and feminine.
The name itself is not only derived from the notes but the ‘Trafalgers’. Christian Dior described them in his memoir published in 1956, Dior by Dior, ‘As for the shocking models, those which are designed to draw attention to the new line, they are shown towards the middle of the show. It is custom to call them the ‘Trafalgars’, those which make the covers or big pages of the magazines (…). After an hour of the show, they recapture the wandering attention of the audience’. A fitting name for such a lively and joyful blend.
