Dior J’adore Exceptional Edition by Victoire de Castellane

Dior J’adore amphora is a precious showcase for an exceptional perfume. For the first time Victoire de Castellane, artistic Director for Dior Jewellery, has provided her own interpretation of it. Inspired by 18th-century jewelry, Victoire de Castellane’s majestic flacon encapsulates the elegance of the Palace of Versailles. “I imagined having found a perfume bottle inside a piece of furniture from the Court of Versailles, in the way one might have hidden a jewel, a treasure one wished to keep safe.

If J’adore had been created in the 18th century, I like to think that it would have been like that, baroque, suspended in time and space,” the Creative Director of Dior Joaillerie explains. This special creation is the object of technical feats that combine tradition and innovation.
The ribbon decorating the amphora is produced using a technique whereby a layer of silver is placed over a layer of rose gold.

The two metals are worked separately then bonded together before being dipped into an oxidizing bath that blackens the silver while preserving the rose gold. This gives a jewel an antique look and reproduces a cradle-lit effect. As if frozen in movement, the bow requires precise and meticulous manipulation by the craftspeople, from polishing to stone setting.

Each crystal amphora is mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at Baccarat, perpetuating the close links the House has enjoyed with this prestigious crystal glassmaker since 1947.
Lastly, like a signature engraved on the gem of a flacon, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore.
