To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc and to pay tribute to its exquisite natural surroundings, the ‘Grande Dame’ has collaborated with Maison Christian Dior on a signature Eden-Roc fragrance.
At the very tip of Cap d’Antibes stands a majestic hotel, iconic property and celebrated hideaway where tranquillity and pleasure meet against a verdant backdrop facing the Mediterranean Sea. This is, of course, the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, which is now celebrating its 150th anniversary and has chosen to collaborate with none other than Dior to create a special fragrance.
The fragrance is the fusion of two emblems of French art de vivre: the inimitable Parisian elegance of Maison Christian Dior and the sun-bathed luxury of this iconic palace, member of the Oetker Collection. “When creating Eden-Roc, I was imagining an arrival at the hotel by sea. The salt, the sun, the rocky shore and the lush vegetation. The sillage is an olfactory image of this magnificent refuge. The accords express the fullness of the Mediterranean: the seawater, the flowers and citrus fruits, the aromatic herbs and maritime pines,” says François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator.
Philippe Perd, Managing Director at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc comments: “This fragrance marks the union of two icons of French heritage and elegance of whom innovation and tradition are closely linked. We are in tune.”
To accompany the fragrance, François Demachy has transposed his melodious notes of seawater, wood and floral blossoms into a candle, a liquid hand soap and a body cream. These three essentials are sensuous conduits of simple, everyday luxury. At bath time or simply for a moment of relaxation, each of these creations communicate the sweetness of life in this corner of paradise.
Eden-Roc by Maison Christian Dior launched worldwide on May 1 in Maison Christian Dior boutiques.
