MAISON CHRISTIAN DIOR’S latest fragrance is an exotic, spicy blend conjured up from the memories of perfumer François Demachy.
“Although I do not remember the smell of the famous Bay Rum lotion, I have a distinct memory of a bottle in my father’s pharmacy that stirred my curiosity. Spice Blend is the fragrant translation of an exotic image stemming from my childhood. This fragrance has a warm signature underlined by an unusual crowd of spices that meet and mingle. Spice Blend is like a whirlwind—but whether it stokes the fire or refreshes us is hard to say,” he says.
Spice Blend sits at a crossroads of spices with a signature scent that is striking, fresh and fiery. The main notes are inspired by the tropics, along with spices from around the world and a rum absolute.
