In 1947, Miss Dior was born, an ebullient, cajoling fragrance in which Jasmine from Provence mixes with sensual mosses and a surprising green note of Galbanum. Sprayed generously around the rooms, the first Dior perfume instantly charmed the audience at the New Look show. And hooked countless women, who flocked to 30 Avenue Montaigne to offer themselves this youthful, elegant Miss Dior.

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet is a subtle floral composition that celebrates the beauty of flower buds and the velvet softness of petals. It is a delicate evocation of Christian Dior’s legendary love of flowers.

And now, as the world changes at high speeds, reinventing daily life and removing boundaries, the House of Dior rolls out its new Roller-Pearl bottle. An innovative design, this new application method provides sensual, casual perfume application for an instant sensorial hit that adds new pleasure to perfume.  A miniature and portable version of the original, Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Roller-Pearl is small but generous. Featuring a wide crystalline bead atop a gorgeously elegant and architectural bottle, Dior Roller-Pearl is also hermetic thanks to a screw-on cap.

One of the biggest challenges of on-the-go perfume application is the bottle size, which is beautifully addressed by this miniature Miss Dior accessory-style bottle. Fitting not only in the palm of your hand, but also in a purse, there will be no more carrying around a large 50 ml or 100 ml bottle. And removing another barrier to public perfume application (or PPA 😉 ), there is no spray to potentially offend another! PPA away with this beautiful Roller-Pearl! I personally cannot wait to throw this stunning bottle into my purse, and use it to my heart’s content. (An aside from a new mom: spray perfume can sometimes also be offending to apply around baby. This gem will make it so much easier for me to apply a dab of my favourite Miss Dior as I’m running out of the house.)

Miss Dior Roller-Pearl is available in Limited Edition in Blooming Bouquet ($49) and Absolutely Blooming ($59), in a perfectly-sized 20 ml bottle, exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart stores and starting today, April 20th!
