Thirty years ago, Salvador Dali created the first fragrance to bear his name, released as a numbered limited edition in a 350 ml sculptured crystal bottle. A spin- off line was subsequently sold in perfume boutiques around the world.
This event marked the birth of the first artist’s fragrance, Dali LE PARFUM. Created by Salvador Dali himself, this fragrance has become one of the great classics in perfumery. This artist's work, inspired by a work of art, won over countless women around the world with the uniqueness and audacity of the fragrance and its lip-shaped bottle, designed by one of the legendary figures in the history of Art.
In same vein as the original mythic fragrance, Dali EAU DE TOILETTE offers a contemporary, purer and more youthful version, reinterpreted for today’s young women who wish to assert their originality and differentiate themselves from current perfume trends by wearing Art as a fragrance.
The bottle naturally features the shapes of the famous lip-shaped bottle designed by Salvador Dali for Dali LE PARFUM, inspired by his painting entitled “Apparition of the Face of Aphrodite of Knidos in a Landscape.” Reinterpreting the lips of the goddess of Love and Beauty imagined by Dali was an obvious choice. This emblematic Parfums Salvador Dali bottle is a tribute to sensuality and femininity: sensual lips, a nose with pure lines, the union of the senses - smell and taste - the messenger of the fragrance contained within this mouth full of passion...
as if the fragrance were a tender kiss from the woman who shares her life with the man she truly loves. For Dali EAU DE TOILETTE, the original bottle features pure, transparent lips, to emphasize their dazzling beauty. The subtle contrast between the body of the bottle in frosted glass and the transparent lips and nose creates a crystalline, aerial and very modern play on light.
Clear, pure, transparent, elegant… the Dali EAU DE TOILETTE bottle allows light to fully penetrate and inundate the glass with a thousand sparkling reflections.
With its glossy, elegant and modern silver hue, the Dali EAU DE TOILETTE box depicts, in its center, Salvador Dali's painting “Apparition of the Face of Aphrodite of Knidos in a Landscape,” Dali’s inspiration when designing the bottle’s shape.
Alberto Morillas, the perfumer who succeeded in creating the olfactory interpretation of Salvador Dali’s dream for the creation of Dali LE PARFUM, was naturally chosen to compose Dali EAU DE TOILETTE. He offers us a continuity of the original scent in a new, contemporary, pure and subtly sensual interpretation.
He preserved the heart of the fragrance, maintaining the essences preferred and selected by Gala and Salvador Dali: the rich, sensual notes of rose and jasmine that made this opulent floral chypre a major classic in women’s perfume, to which he added an original accord reinterpreted and softened for Dali EAU DE TOILETTE, thus creating a new, refined fragrance with sparkling fruity accents; a modern, youthful, dazzling and radiant eau de toilette.
This fragrance combines the most exquisite floral scents, the freshest fruity aromas and the most delicate powdery musks. It is sure to win over today’s young women just as Dali LE PARFUM did a generation ago. In the top notes, a floral, luminous burst of tangy tangerine and sparkling bergamot accents is in perfect harmony with the sunny tonalities of radiant orange blossom. A dazzling, feminine bouquet of rose and jasmine in the middle notes pays tribute to Gala and Salvador Dali, softened by a delicate, modern touch of magnolia petals. In the base notes, the warmth of white musks, with their powdery fragrance, combined with sensual vanilla, diffuse an elegant trail, enhanced with a subtly intense woody touch.
