I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


The fragrance is articulated around the freshness of the lily of the valley's soft green bells with touches of jasmine, lily and amaryllis. The end note is woody.


Diorissimo is a perfume that embraces the spirit of Christian Dior's "fortune" flower. The creator from Grasse, France, Edmond Roudnitska, decided to break with contemporary perfume trends that tended to be too sweet. Around 1953, he decided to simplify his formulas and venture toward fresher and more transparent scents. He wanted to create a muguet that was similar to the one he could smell in his garden and managed to develop an olfactive structure to his liking in 1955. The two men (Dior and Roudnitska) met and pooled their ideas, which led to the creation of a ''superlative'' perfume christened ''Diorissimo'', the last of the single flower fragrances. The perfume was represented by an illustration by René Gruau depicting a woman seen from the back holding a bouquet of lily of the valley. According to Christian Dior, Diorissimo contains his spirit, or, "the scented expression of his soul"


The first bottle was signed Baccarat. It was made of facetted crystal and the lid was a gilded bronze flower bouquet. Its shape was said to have been inspired by a baroque chandelier hanging in the store on Avenue Montaigne.

    J'adore le muguet, et par conséquent Diorissimo vers lequel je reviens régulièrement. Le muguet de Penhaligon n'est pas mal non plus
