Stopover in Portofino, the perfume of Dior for travelers

In 2008, the Dior house launched a range of perfumes called “Les Escales de Dior”. This collection offers each year, and more particularly in spring, a new fresh and light fragrance to mark the arrival of sunny days. This is then an invitation to travel. Indeed, as Christian Dior said, “If you travel a lot, you need special outfits that are light, compact and that do not wrinkle”. Also, these perfumes take exactly this symbolism and Escale à Portofino is the very first opus. With him, Dior invites us to Italian soil at the bottom of a small cove in the Riviera.

Dior’s olfactory journeys

Les Escales de Dior were created with the sole aim of making our senses travel. These perfumesare an invitation to discover distant lands. However, these regions are only places where there is heat and good weather. Also, these essences symbolize well-deserved and very pleasant breaks in the middle of this adventurous journey. They take us to always different home ports and seem to put time on hold. They make us discover exotic and unknown places that Dior takes pleasure in gathering in bottles, as a traveler might do in a travel diary. Also, the chic style is required but at the same time mixes with a somewhat casual aspect. Indeed, the journey in question takes forms of deceptively refined cruise. Stopover in Portofino pays homage to this fishing port in northern Italy and is therefore the first stopover of the trip. It must be said that Italy is a country that is particularly close to Christian Dior’s heart. Indeed, between two collections, he liked to retire to the Château de la Colle Noire, one of his residences, bordered by cypresses and located in Tuscany. Also, Stopover in Portofino portrays a picturesque and majestic facet of this country. It exudes a tranquility and a simple and pure beauty. This essence perfectly portrays the gentle tranquility of Portifino. In addition, it is very contrasted, just like this city which combines the modest habitats of fishermen and luxurious villas.

Stopover in Portofino gives us its dynamism via citrus notes

If there are many fruits that characterize Italy, it is undoubtedly citrus fruits. Also, Escale à Portofino contains quite a lot of it. From the start, the bursting of citrus notes are essential. In addition, there are bergamot from Calabria, citron from Italy and petitgrain from Sicily. In addition, François Demachy, the perfumer in charge of the creation, has chosen to add the lemon tree for its lively side and the sour orange tree for its greener and refreshing appearance. Its heart, meanwhile, is full of green and aromatic notes. These include galbanum, juniper berry and orange blossom. Finally, the whole is based on more woody scents of cypress and cedar. Likewise, the essence of bitter almond and its little amaretto side leaves a sweet wake on the skin. There is no doubt that we are in Italy. Everything is delivered to us in a cylindrical bottle that has become emblematic of the collection. Its shape is slender and simple. She seemed ideally designed for travel. The precious cane dear to the Dior brand is present while the whole is topped by a very elegant silver stopper.
