Dior recreates Christian Dior’s favorite dessert in perfume



Le Diorama Gourmand was created especially for Christian Dior by Maxim’s, the Parisian restaurant famous for its chic clientele and its Art Nouveau interior. And with no pictures or detailed recipes beyond brief descriptions of a vanilla dessert with an orange insert, it remains one of the most intriguing and mysterious desserts to date, inspiring Dior perfumer François Demachy. to recreate this mysterious pastry as his latest fragrance for La Collection Privée Christian Dior.

Vanilla Diorama is a delicious scent that draws on a base of sweet notes of citrus, cocoa and rum to present a warm and opulent heart of Madagascan vanilla.

“I wanted to celebrate both this power of evocation and the nobility of this rare raw material,” says Demachy. “I wanted this trail to be a faithful portrait, to reveal its very nuanced olfactory beauty and to embody its sweetness enhanced with joyful citrus notes, as well as its denser and more organic side enveloped in an enveloping background.

To mark the occasion, Demachy also invited Julien Dugourd, world-renowned pastry chef at the Château de la Chèvre d’Or restaurant with two Michelin stars, to join him on his journey to recreate the Diorama Gourmand.

The two masters meet in the kitchens of Christian Dior‘s last home, the Château de la Colle Noire, to unveil each of their creations.

Dugourd’s culinary creation layers a vanilla mousse as light as a feather, orange marmalade and coulis on a base of white chocolate and a crumble of vanilla biscuit, seasoned with a light pinch of fleur de sel to enhance the taste of this delicious combination.

“Each spoonful contains exactly the same quantity of foam and orange insert so that the balance is always perfect”, specifies Dugourd. It reveals that each visual component of this cupcake is inspired by the couturier’s writings. For example, elegant curves and gold leaf mimic the elegant form of Christian Dior’s signature, as well as his luxurious clothing designs.
