For the very first time, Dior has chosen to distil the entire May rose harvest from Domaine de Manon, to collect its rose water. With a UNESCO intangible heritage classification, the fourth-generation flower farm in Grasse region of France has been cultivating fragrance flowers since the 1930s and exclusively for Dior for almost two decades. The result is the unique Miss Dior Rose Essence, the only one of its kind, presented as a yearly perfume vintage.
