Many members will remember Chandler Burr, the author of “DIOR: The Perfumes” from his 2008 keynote presentation at the IPBA convention in St. Louis. Some of us also own his earlier book “The Perfect Scent”. This book is in a class by itself. It is a gorgeous, large coffee table book. And by large … I mean LARGE. It contains 290 pages, its size is 10″x 14″ and it weighs approximately 10 pounds!
Featured inside are the fragrances Miss Dior, 1947; Diorama 1949; EauFraiche 1955; Diorissimo 1956; Diorling 1963; Eau Savage 1966; Diorella 1972; Dioressence 1979; Jules 1980; Poison 1985; Fahrenheit 1988; Dune 1991; Dolce Vita 1995; J’adore 1999; Dior Addict 2002; Dior Homme 2005; and Les Escales de Dior 2008. Each chapter is enhanced with photographs of accompanying fashion designs, advertisements, historical information, fragrance composition and more.
Overall a wonderful book, especially for anyone who is a Dior enthusiast.
