    Default New Fragrance- Dior la collection privée- Gris Montaigne

    New fragrance being introduced into Dior's prestigious la collection privee line.

    From fragrantica:

    Gris Montaigne by Dior is a Chypre Floral fragrance for women. This is a new fragrance. Gris Montaigne was launched in 2013. The nose behind this fragrance is François Demachy. The fragrance features bergamot, rose, patchouli, amber, cedar, sandalwood and oakmoss.

    The notes make this sound lovely, I enjoy almost all of these notes and this sounds like it may be an interesting composition made by Demachy; hoping it's not overly floral though. Any Dior release gets me excited especially one being introduced to the privee line. Hope this will be a worthy addition and cannot wait to try it!

    Thoughts? And has anyone tried it?

    Sounds very interesting. Just found out it won't be arriving in the US until September 2013 from the boutique in Las Vegas. Was told it's available now in France though.

    Interesting.

    Hopefully it'll be a solid performer like Oud Ispahan & Leather Oud.

    This just showed up on the Dior Vegas boutique page. I have no idea what to expect but I'm curious what the color grey will smell like. The notes list is small and gives no real indication, but the other perfumes from this line have been great so I'm expecting good things.

    Sneak Peak!
    We're getting overwhelming calls about this new upcoming La Collection fragrance: Gris Montaigne. The US will be receiving it but not until the fall.

    And if grey were a perfume?

    The olfactory signature of the Couture House’s legendary location, 30, Avenue Montaigne, has become a reality. The perfumer’s response to couture, this sophisticated chypre fragrance is a bold interpretation of the Dior Grey. The Couture Grey featured in the collections since 1947, the Grey Emotion of Christian Dior’s family home in Granville, Pearl Grey like the facade of the boutique on Avenue Montaigne.

    Colour becomes a perfume: a burst of citrus, a floral heart of Turkish Rose and Jasmine Sambac from the Indian region of Tamil Nadu, followed by a woody note heightened with Indonesian Patchouli set against an ambery backdrop of moss.

    Everything but the "rose" has me interested. Let's hope for the best.

    Tried a spritz in passing a couple of weeks ago - struck me as very polite, bright understated florals, gentle . . . and nothing really jumped out at me. If I had known it was still not available elsewhere I would have paid more attention - sorry I can't add much more at this point, but it is definitely shy compared to Leather Oud / Oud Ispahan and some of the others - it's not in that style at all, this one feels like more of a demure classical piece of work.
