Dolce Vita by Christian Dior c1994

Dolce Vita by Christian Dior: created by Pierre Bourdon and Maurice Roger and launched in 1994.


Inspiration:


A happiness potion, Dolce Vita is a sensual, voluptuous fragrance that is simple and contrasting, hinting at a carefree, joyous walk along the Italian Riviera. This dazzlingly feminine fragrance illustrates Christian Dior's fascination for Latin women.

Vanity Fair, 1994:
"Bellini-esque" is not an adjective that could have been applied to the launch party for Dolce Vita, a new Christian Dior perfume, at the Plaza's Grand Ballroom."

This perfume of joy and happiness reminds us of hot and sunny summer days-the scent of easy living.



Fragrance Composotion:

This dazzlingly feminine fragrance features joyous fruity and floral notes with the spicy, sensual accents of cedar. It epitomizes Dior's glorious spirit.

So what does it smell like? This is a sweet floral oriental fragrance with a spicy woody base.
  • Top notes: grapefruit, peach, rose, bergamot, cardamom, lily
  • Heart notes: peach, apricot, Brazilian rosewood, cinnamon, lily, magnolia, heliotrope,
  • Base notes: sandalwood, vanilla, cedar, coconut




Flacon Design:


The Dolce Vita bottle combines glass and perfume artistry in the tradition of luxury. The transparent yellow gold gleams through the facets carved into the glass with amazing clarity.




Dolce Vita by F. Demachy:


Magnolia and Cinnamon notes enhance the woody base of Dolce Vita. This final accord, which is generally masculine, intensifies the modernity of this extremely feminine fragrance. 

Dolce Vita, the fragrance of happiness recalls the carefree, heart-lifting nostalgia of driving a convertible along the Italian Riviera. A dazzlingly feminine and joyful fruity/floral fragrance with spicy, sensual undertones of cedar, it incarnates the spirit of Dior in all its sumptuousness.
