“Every moment has its fragrance, and every fragrance has its moment.” - François Demachy

It’s these words that form the mantra of François Demachy. As Maison Christian Dior’s “nose”, he is tasked with creating new fragrances for the house and, in the case of its ‘Rouge Trafalgar’ launch, the moment in question is central to the scent. House founder Christian Dior loved to inject his couture presentations with a surprise. In the midst of a flow of elegant silhouettes, a striking image interrupted the serene proceedings. A crimson-red dress would appear seemingly out of nowhere, adding contrast to the rest of the collection. He called it his “Coup de Trafalgar” moment, and it served as a consistently memorable moment in his work. 

Likewise, ‘Rouge Trafalgar’ pays homage to this key moment by surprising the senses. A mouthwatering scent, its fruity, berry notes are given a shocking boost of freshness by way of violet leaves. This unexpected encounter is made all the more thrilling when enshrouded in musk, accompanied by a base note of patchouli. Although “fresh” and “fruity” are easy descriptors, you’ve never smelled a fruity fragrance like this before. It is deep, it is luxurious, it is enduring – not to mention its dimensionality, which will appeal to women of all fragrance preferences.
