In honor of this magnificent exposition, Dior Parfums beckoned a constellation of luminaries and esteemed affiliates of the maison. Among the distinguished attendees, one would find the emblematic face of J’adore, the ethereal Charlize Theron, the radiant Jisoo of BLACKPINK fame, the thespians Jenna Ortega, Joseph Quinn, Robert Pattinson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rachel Zegler, and a galaxy of other notables such as Dilraba Dilmurat, Elisabeth Debicki, Elle Macpherson, Emma Raducanu, Thuso Mbedu, Caroline Issa, Ava Wang, Yuko Araki, and Nicole Wallace.
At the heart of J’adore lies a lyrical homage to florals. The exhibition unveils a sojourn through an aristocratic bouquet, where the heady embrace of Jasmine Sambac and Damascena Rose takes center stage. Alongside the scent’s notes, patrons shall witness the unprecedented limited-edition flacon, a masterpiece conceived by the visionary Jean-Michel Othoniel. The digital realm converges with this sensory experience through Refik Anadol’s avant-garde interpretation. The enchantment is further enriched with Katerina Jebb’s X-ray interpretation of J’adore, the ethereal golden-threaded creations by Fred Eerdekens, and culminating in the poetic photographic captures of the perfume’s perennial essence by Yuriko Takagi.
J’adore, in its timeless elegance, seamlessly melds the art of perfumery with diverse artistic mediums, continually redefining its narrative while honoring its roots.
