"Christian Dior's newly launched fragrances Jules depicts the lifestyle of the '80s: liberated, bold and exciting. The Jules fragrance is self assertive, positive, with instant appeal. On first contact it evokes a clean, refreshing, green, country fragrance derived from such essences as lentisk from Provence, sclaree sage, lavender, galbanum, angelica seeds. As the first notes fade, the deeper fragrances take over: rich, woody scents from such exotic essences as Mysore sandalwood, Lebanese cedar, Singapore patchouli. Amber and musk blend to give it its incomparable lasting property and join with Russian leather to affirm its personality and strengthen its reach. Warm and gently provocative spices such as clove, black pepper and cardamom heighten its appeal to the senses."
