Limited Edition: Must-Have J’adore Dior Special Edition – Discover the secrets behind the making of the new exceptional J’adore Dior flacon, bringing together the expertise of some of the greatest Parisian artisans. Today, Design Limited Edition shows you the reasons why this is the ultimate luxury perfume and, who knows, the most expensive fragrance ever!
Inspired by 18th-century jewelry, Victoire de Castellane has designed a majestic flacon that encapsulates the elegance of the Palace of Versailles. This special creation is the object of technical feats that combine tradition and innovation.
The ribbon decorating the amphora is produced using a technique whereby a layer of silver is placed over a layer of rose gold. The two metals are worked separately then bonded together before being dipped into an oxidizing bath that blackens the silver while preserving the rose gold. This gives a jewel an antique look and reproduces a cradle-lit effect.
As if frozen in movement, the bow requires precise and meticulous manipulation by the craftspeople, from polishing to stone setting. Each crystal amphora is mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at Baccarat, perpetuating the close links the House has enjoyed with this prestigious crystal glassmaker since 1947.
Lastly, like a signature engraved on the gem of a flacon, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore. Limited to only five editions worldwide, each bottle bears an engraved signature of Victoire de Castellane. For prices and purchase visit Dior.com.
