YSL Beaute Mon Paris

A STREET MAP FOR LOVERS
Obsessive. Intrusive. Consuming. Intense. Passionate. Sensual. Paris.
Paris for Monsieur Saint Laurent embodied a sense of truth, passion and purity of emotion, one that was defiant of social inhibitions and celebratory of moral freedom.

In his heart, Paris was an eternal emblem of love. A constant inspiration in his work, his life, everything he created was underpinned by a deep connection with the city.

In Paris, everything was possible. “ [..] I have chosen your name for this perfume, because none is more beautiful. Because I love you. My Paris.” Yves Saint Laurent

image016Inspired by archive sketches of lavallières, the classic pussy bow at the front of the neck of a blouse, perfume bottle designer Catherine Krunas took this piece and inverted it, turning it into a metaphor for a modern love affair at the peak of its passion.

At first constrained by the neck-tie, the Mon Paris lover is overcome by a daring power of seduction, the untying of the bow symbolic of the release that comes with love.

J’ADORE (NEW COM 2016)

J’adore is a timeless and luminous companion to women’s lives.
It is a unique way of celebrating the love of femininity, which is the signature of the Dior soul. A symphonic perfume, it portrays every flower.
A sensual perfume, it portrays every woman.
J’adore is also a name, calling out like a life force.
A bottle-symbol. A radiant icon, full of life.

Habitually surprising, it once again takes the opposite course to that already established, in a genuine rebirth.
Reinvented, it returns to its original strengths.
Redefining a new vision of luxury, it touches on the essence of life.

A new gold arises, born of the water and stones, the sun and the wind. In a dream place that measures up to women’s desires.

For more than a decade, J’adore has merged, body and soul, with Charlize Theron.
A woman of fire and rain, of water and wind, she is regenerated in the imposing setting of life-giving, magical nature.
Witness the naked beauty of sensitive emotions.
She finds meaning in the world again, and returns to herself, jubilant.

J’adore !

J’ADORE THE NEW FILM

Since 1999, Jean-Baptiste Mondino has directed the fascinating story of the J’adore woman.
He has, in turn, immersed her in an opulent bath of gold, stripped her bare in the quest for truth, and had her climb to a new elsewhere.

On a quest for a new version of the truth, he wanted her free from constraint, transported to a world of water, sun and wind created in her extraordinary image.

The new gold

Jean-Baptiste Mondino’s J’adore films are sensorial journeys.
In this new opus, Charlize Theron appears in an imposing setting of a vast, unspoilt expanse in which the elements converge. An unreal desert of water and ochre-coloured stone, in which the sky meets the earth. Powerful nature extends as far as the eye can see, bathed in a life-giving, regenerative rain. A sublime warm light radiates every shot.

Both symbolic and steeped in a sacred dimension, this film is a return to the fundamentals. A return to the need to redefine luxury and get back to one’s roots in the rawest, most beautiful, components of nature. A new gold emerges, the fruit of this meeting of the elements. It is an organic, essential gold.

“My story with J’adore is a long one, marked by a relationship of loyalty and trust with the House of Dior and with Charlize Theron,” emphasizes Jean-Baptiste Mondino. “With every film, the House of Dior wanted to make this woman evolve, and understand her role in the world, defining a rapport with luxury. This film follows on from the previous one, which saw her climbing towards a salutary “elsewhere” having eliminated the superfluous. It has a new, radically different beginning. She no longer needs to escape, as she is now totally free, immersed in regal nature, almost naked and rid of all artifice. Her vision of the world is essential, designating what is of primordial importance: protecting our planet and in particular, the water that is our new gold. She tells us that luxury can have meaning.”

Sacred nature

Seeking to celebrate nature while creating an exceptional ambience, Jean-Baptiste Mondino invented a unique place, “that measures up to women’s desires,” as he puts it.

Filmed in natural light, the natural beauty of these rare images required no re-touching, only extreme patience.
Only a few hours at dusk enabled the director to capture the ideal, golden light that he wanted. Entire days spent waiting for this miraculous moment provided them with a unique experience, in a combination of patience and contemplative joy. Regal nature laid down her law.

“Today, I can confirm that the planets all aligned for us to create this film. From storyboard to filming, everything went perfectly. The sun, wind and sky… Nature spoiled us, and there wasn’t a moment of disappointment. At around 6.15 every evening, when the light was finally perfect, it was like a mystical experience!”

Jean-Baptiste Mondino

The power of emotions

More stunning than ever, Charlize Theron radiates serene beauty. Her smile is genuine, her “J’adore” vibrant.
Jean-Baptiste Mondino filmed her up close, in her footsteps, her every emotion.
Sensually transparent and minimalist, her dress reveals her shoulders and endless legs.

“Charlize was extraordinary. As a South African, she rediscovered sensations that she loves. The sun, the wind, and the desert filled her with joy. She was totally committed and genuinely emotional. You can see all that – she radiates beauty and happiness.”

In barely-there sandals, she runs freely, with an animal stride, to the powerful rhythm of a remix of “I Love You,” by Woodkid. Vibrating in unison, Charlize seems to be in the grip of the elements.
There is no struggle in this conquest, only perfect harmony.

J’ADORE EAU DE PARFUM

J’adore possesses the most precious of all: a signature and emotion.
J’adore is unique, for it is a floral ideal.
This perfect flower does not exist, yet is nevertheless present, quivering on the skin.
A sensual, invented bouquet, crafted down to the last detail, like a made-to-measure flower.

An unimpaired jewel, J’adore is extremely elegant, revealing the evident.
Its complex composition remains unseen; there is no pretentious vaunting of its brilliance, ever.
J’adore is there, simply luminous. With a smile, it reaches out to you.

“J’adore is an extraordinary perfume as it takes up the challenge of being readily seductive while having an original signature; of being sensual without being heavy. It’s a composition that combines opposites, and renders iconic floral notes as an attractive, original and mysterious whole. J’adore invents a flower that doesn’t exist.”

A sensational bouquet

Flowers shine at the heart of J’adore.
Their chorus forms an evident harmony and an immediate pleasure that delights the senses.

Creating an exhaustive portrait of this bouquet is impossible. Distinguishing some of its floral beauties may, nevertheless, shine light on the mystery. The origins of J’adore’s smooth sweetness are better grasped for knowing Comorian Ylang Ylang essence, which reveals the subtle beauty of floral-fruity notes. Soothing, even somewhat narcotic, this flower of paradise instils exotic sweetness. The vibrations of beautiful Turkish Rosa Damascena can also be felt in its lively, almost sassy notes. Exuberant and spirited, instantly present and a bit of a “show-off,” it warms the senses and unfalteringly imposes its sensual power.

François Demachy

Dior Perfumer-Creator

Jasmines of the world

At the heart of J’adore, the intensity of a jasmine duo is diffused.
Jasmine Grandiflorum from Grasse, and Jasmine Sambac from India, combine forces and differences to craft a superb note in the ultimate floral incarnation. An exceptional flower, Jasmine requires picking at the break of day, at the moment of peak fragrance. It is as though this suspended moment, when the light is perfect, reunites J’adore and its symbolic flower in an essential truth. The truth of a moment in which everything makes sense, and Jasmine is jubilant.

The House of Dior put Indian Jasmine Sambac in the spotlight, and “launched its career.” Little used before the creation of J’adore in 1999, the “flower of the Gods” entered the major league and established its pedigree with its brilliant presence in the composition. Fruity with a hint of orange blossom, it has the instant power of the blazing sun. It has a broad fragrance spectrum, and its attractive appeal is rich in delicate, sensual notes.

Grasse Jasmine, combined with it, is the absolutely quintessential noble flower. Harvested at the “Domaine du Manon,” a Dior perfumes partner for 10 years now, it is a rare raw material, prized for its unique qualities.
Its presence is a signature, and a pledge of absolute luxury.

Its supremacy is such that the Provençal people call it “the flower,” as though it were a concentration of all the spirit and magic of the exceptional Grasse flowers. Flowering more abundantly than Indian Jasmine (it “suffers” more owing to the contrasting climate of the Grasse region), this variety develops unique and unrivaled accents.

It is undeniably potent, yet nevertheless subtle. Highly attractive, it appeals to the senses and speaks immediately of seduction. It is florally “perfect,” heightened by the sun- kissed fruit of a luscious “candied” note.

GRASSE JASMINE FROM THE “DOMAINE DE MANON”

The emblematic crop of the Grasse region, Jasmine, more than a flower, is a veritable symbol. The icon of this unique terroir, located between the sea and the mountains, enjoys an ideal climate that enables it to “suffer” and develop its exceptional fragrant qualities. Although current production is in no way comparable to what it was (1,600 tonnes in 1930 versus 14 tonnes in 2015), Grasse Jasmine remains an exceptional flower prized by major perfume houses such as Dior, who are put off neither by its rarity, nor by its considerable cost.

For 10 years now, Dior perfumes have worked in partnership with the “Domaine du Manon,” run by Carole Biancalana, who reserves her entire Jasmine Grandiflorum harvest for the House fragrances.
Following in the footsteps of previous generations, she courageously endeavours to cultivate a crop as beautiful as it is difficult.

Indeed, Grasse Royal Jasmine, or “large flower” jasmine, is a flower that does not tolerate harsh winters (more than a week of frost is fatal), and requires suitable land that is sunny, protected and sufficiently irrigated.
Harvested from mid-July to roughly mid-October, once the little white stars have blossomed in the night, the Jasmine is picked every day, from dawn until about ten o’clock. The delicate little white flowers are pinched off, one by one, slowly filling the pickers’ baskets. (A good picker can collect around 400 grams of flowers per hour).

The harvest, stored in the shade in thin layers, must be transported the same morning for transformation into a Concrete, and then an Absolute.
A kilo of jasmine contains around 10,000 flowers. And to make a kilo of Jasmine Absolute, it takes about 700 kilos of flowers. These mind-boggling figures emphasize just how rare and costly this raw material is.

As soon as the weather turns cold (November-December), the Jasmine plants are cut down and the stumps have to be “earthed up” i.e., covered with soil to protect them. The young stems that grow back after winter then have to be attached to each other. This painstaking manual work is indispensable when cultivating Grasse Jasmine, which is the noblest and most highly prized variety, as emphasized by Carole Biancalana:

“Grasse Jasmine has an aroma that is intensely floral, yet not heady. It is full of character, yet more faceted than any other variety of Jasmine in the world.”

L’OCCITANE

Seeks the best for both the skin and the environment

DIVINE HARMONY SERUM

5,000 MICRO-DROPS OF IMMORTELLE MILLÉSIMÉE

Imagine over 5,000 micro-drops of Immortelle Millésimée, suspended within a water-based gel enriched with Jania Rubens to act on facial contours and volumes. Imagine a combination of potent active ingredients protected and encapsulated in tiny, identical drops, individually produced and enclosed by a super-fine membrane. And all these ingredients wait for the right moment to act on the skin and recreate harmony.

For the Divine Harmony Serum, our Laboratories asked an esteemed, ingenious partner to multiply the number of active ingredients held by each of these micro-drops. They not only contain Immortelle Millésimée essential oil, but also myrtle essential oil and camelina, evening primrose and borage oils.

With each pump of the dispenser, the earth and sea collide. The micro-drops burst delicately, without leaving the slightest trace. Jania Rubens and Immortelle fuse together and melt into the skin. The lightweight serum infuses the skin with powerful active ingredients. As the fingertips trace the contours of the face, they seem to sculpt its youthful plumpness and soften stubborn wrinkles.

27hc050i16_2_1m

DIVINE HARMONY CREAM

A FUSION OF OIL AND WATER

Divine Harmony beautifully combines the regenerative powers of two exceptional age-defying ingredients: Jania Rubens and Immortelle Millésimée. The Divine Harmony Cream transports us to the Island of Beauty with its refreshing, uplifting scent of the clear Mediterranean waters, woven with notes of earth, myrtle, musk and immortelle. The cream’s texture is as soft and fine as the skin. It melts – quite literally – into the skin, which rapidly absorbs its active ingredients.

Upon contact, the Jania Rubens extract sinks into the skin, giving a feeling of comfort and hydration. Then the formula evolves. The cream transforms into a soft oil that allows the lipophilic active ingredients to penetrate the skin – particularly the Immortelle Millésimée and myrtle essential oils, as well as camelina, evening primrose and borage oils. It helps to soften expression lines, rebalance facial volumes and boost radiance: the three pillars of facial harmony.
