Interesting Facts

This fragrance was reformulated in 2009 by François Demachy according to IFRA guidelines. Since then it is part of the collection "Les Creations de Monsieur Dior".

The scent of lily-of-the-valley cannot be extracted - there is no natural essence. It must be reconstructed to be usable in perfumery. There had been lily-of-the-valley perfumes before, but in 1956 Edmond Roudnitska succeeded with his reconstruction of this flower by using hydroxycitronellal, the main aroma component of lily of the valley, and other notes. This reconstruction was so good that it can count as the perfumers's masterpiece and reference fragrance for similar perfumes.

Christian Dior allegedly had asked for his favorite flower as a perfume. He is said to always have a lily-of-the-valley blossom sewn into the hems and tucks of his model dresses.

Something has changed
I used to love this in my teens, so last year spring came in the country and out of the blue I thought about Lily of the valley (men offer those flowers on May the 1ste to their partners in my country) I always loved that smell, and impulsive as I am I bought diorissimo again after many...

She has used wonderful perfumes since i can remember, but unfortunately not as a serious collector. Now and then i go to her boudoir and always find something new, and lots of... Read more

I'm torn on this perfume. Roudnitska. He was a genius and I'm an admirer of his other work. His works typically seem to have the thoroughness that denotes a masterful technical proficiency, but also an integrity of concept and intention. I've only smelled the recent Diorissimo EDT, and I've... Read more

Proof Positive that I am Truly a Cow!
DIORISSIMO is so scrumptiously loveable that I must be a cow, for this is all about tiny white blossoms of lily of the valley evenly interspersed among endless fields of glistening green grass. Waves of jasmine come and go, and a bit of ylang and undetectable civet appear to add depth, but on its... Read more

Classic lily of the valley
This fragrance is one of those classics that capture you with its simplicity and charm rather than its uniqueness or bold new approach. Diorissimo is the perfect example of a fresh, green floral that somehow manages to be loved by so many people even though the scent itself is nothing... Read more
