With Escale à Parati, Dior is taking us to South America!
For several years now, the Dior house has been offering us real olfactory journeys. So, for a moment, it’s a bit as if this renowned brand were offering you to put your suitcases on the other side of the world. However, no need for a passport. Everything is soberly housed inside a bottle. In 2012, Dior decided to take us to the heart of South America. Unveiling woody and citrus scents, the Escale à Parati perfume is simply bursting with sunshine and bursts of laughter. It is a digest of joie de vivre to slip on the skin.
Les Escales de Dior, a real world tour
Les Escales de Dior is a collection of perfumes inspired by the house’s famous Cruise collections. To make them, perfumers have traveled to the four corners of the globe, inviting us to discover distant lands. Les Escales de Dior is set up in various home ports and offers us an enchanted break. With them, time seems suspended in the discovery of still unknown places.
The Escales de Dior collection is like a real travel diary or a passport filled with multiple different destinations. All these perfumes also have in common that they are presented in cylindrical bottles, with a slender and refined shape. The whole is surmounted by a silver cap. Their glass is etched with a play of matte and shiny textures giving them a very sophisticated air.

Stopover at Parati de Dior is blowing the wind of festive holidays ahead of time.

The idea was, through Escale à Parati, to be as faithful as possible to the Brazilian atmosphere. Thus, its breath begins with a freshness of Brazilian mint associated with petitgrain from Paraguay. The Argentine lemon, meanwhile, gives the whole a luminous and invigorating grip.
