Those with a pas­sion for per­fume will be de­lighted by the news that a Maison Chris­tian Dior has opened in House of Fraser in Glas­gow, be­com­ing only the third out­let of its kind in the United King­dom. Dior him­self vis­ited the store in the 1960s, giv­ing the Maison added sig­nif­i­cance.

The ex­pe­ri­ence is a trib­ute to Dior’s beloved Chateau de La Colle Noire and his dual pas­sions of per­fume and couture. The toile-in­spired whites and petal shades of the fra­grances, soaps and can­dles of­fer an invit­ing en­vi­ron­ment in which to cel­e­brate the cre­ations of Fran­cois Demachy, the brand’s per­fumier, and the exquisite Col­lec­tion Privee Chris­tian Dior, di­rectly in­spired by the won­ders of Grasse, the world cap­i­tal of per­fume.
