Charlize Theron, Marlene Dietrich, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe – hubba hubba! The latest spot for J’adore Dior features this dream team of timeless beauties being pampered and touched-up before hitting the catwalk. I know what you’re thinking, ‘but some of those women are dead!’ And to you I say, hello, CGI – look into, thx.
I got to thinking about Dior’s selection of starlets, new and old. In making a list of timeless beauties, most people would also have included Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, maybe Jackie O? Dior seems to have focused instead on the voluptuous blonds with lusty allure. It’s a boudoir fragrance worn by, rather than timeless beauties, timeless bombshells. Therefore, I would assume that J’adore smells of rose petals and chocolate bon-bons, but in fact it has notes of orchid, Damascus plum and amaranth wood.
