Dior invites together a collective of diverse talent to represent its fragrance, Gris Dior. Transcending gender boundaries, this all-encompassing fragrance captures the essence of the fashion house’s quintessential hue: a sophisticated gray, an enduring homage to Christian Dior’s vision.

Gris Dior is a chypre masterpiece, striking a harmonious chord between the classic and contemporary. Its olfactory aura lingers between floral and woody undertones, asserting a distinctive presence. François Demachy, the master perfumer-creator, conjured this sensorial enigma by envisioning the iconic Dior gray as an olfactory enchantment.

Demachy’s process led him to reexamine the essence of gray itself: not a mere convergence of black and white but rather an intricate blend of chromatic subtleties. “This profusion of colors inspired a composition that melds Jasmine and Bergamot with notes of humid undergrowth,” explained Demachy. “The color is transformed into an emblematic fragrance. Its lively scent is multifaceted and effortlessly elegant.”
