L'Important c'est la Rose
"What is important is the rose"
Here Christian Dior would certainly have wholeheartedly agreed with his compatriot Gilbert Bécaud and applauded.
After all, after he bought the "Château de la Colle Noire" in Provence in 1951, he had devoted his special attention and love to the re-cultivation of the fragrant May rose, which he had always admired in his mother's garden in Granville in Brittany.
In general, the design of the garden with numerous olive and fruit trees and generous fields of roses, along with the personal decoration of the rooms in the Château, was one of his greatest passions and holiday pleasures.
This Château, with its paradise of flowers, was his true retreat.
"Here I forgot Dior to be Christian again." he wrote in his autobiography, which was also published in English ("Dior by Dior").
When Christian Dior was not enjoying the beauty of his garden, he made trips from here to St. Tropez and Cannes, meeting his friends there for dinner and chat.
After all, he loved good food, fine wine and entertaining conversations with people close to him.

The company "Maison Christian Dior" not only bought in the meantime this property in Provence and let it resurrect in the old splendor; "Dior Parfums" also put on the fragrance series "La Collection Privée".
In it we discover the private world of Christian Dior in fragrance form: a very nice idea!
In addition to the parental home in "Granville", the estate of his heart "La Colle Noire" may not be missing here of course.

The heart of this feminine fragrance is the May rose, also called "Rose de Grasse".
In the meantime, the cultivation of this unique fragrant rose began there again, after the former fields had to give way to greed for money.
(Sophie Bonnet describes the resulting struggle for this "commodity flower" vividly in her crime novel: "Provencal Rose War - A Case for Pierre Durant".)

"La Colle Noire" is not only a beautiful rose fragrance, but also an "ode to the May rose": sensual, honey-sweet and omnipresent.
Here you meet these roses in their original fragrance power: delicate pink like the Sunday dresses of little girls, yet spicy and powerful.
Shall but during the harvest of these flowers the air is spiced by their rosy-peppery fragrance.
Also in this fragrance composition, this rose lady receives a special spice, which still emphasizes its peculiarity.
Together with the freshness of lemons, a bouquet of peonies and of course lily of the valley (what would be a memory of Christian Dior without the lily of the valley?) was still added a basket full of ripe juicy peaches and tart-spicy black currants.
Of course, the faithful companions of the flower queen sandalwood and white musk may not be missing. They skillfully emphasize the natural personality of the fragrance and its richness of facets; a well-dosed amber gives it additional luster.
Thus unfolds on the skin the impression of a magical place of fragrance, which we may enter with this "key" in the flacon.

"La Colle Noire" is a generous bouquet of roses; a gift for every woman!
This fragrance embraces its wearer vivaciously and charmingly; very much in the spirit of Christian Dior, who considered woman a pinnacle of creation.
As we know, he also paid homage to her in each of his artworks.
"La Collection Privée" continues this tradition with its fragrances, while lovingly memorializing the unforgotten patron.

What is the point?
Bright rose and musky freshness. The effect is that of a feminine Springtime perfume for rich ladies. Not amazing in any way. Similar to the countless department store perfumes Dior sells but a little more elevated.
