Dior’s Oud fragrances get a magical makeover for Ramadan and Eid-Al-Fitr

Lindsay Judge   |   06-04-2023

This Ramadan Dior embraces the spirit of Arabia with an exclusive new design and animation to accompany three of its Oud fragrances in the La Collection Privée collection.


Designed by a friend of the House Pietro Ruffo this fairy and blooming ivory and gold pattern iconizes the Zodiac theme so dear to the House and its Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri. The pattern is inspired by the constellations of stars that light up Christian Dior’s former residence, Château de La Colle Noire.


This mystical pattern will decorate three of the Maison’s Oud creations of this collection for the Eid Celebration, paying tribute to gold; one of the House’s iconic colours. These three scents are perfect for gifting over this season.


Oud Ispahan



“Oud Ispahan is like opening the doors of an Oriental palace with ochre walls and being struck by its fragrance. The smoky scent of burning wood blends with that of sweet floral water on washed hands. That’s the scent of this smooth atmosphere, where rose, frankincense and resin linger. The perfume is velvety and sensual, like the roses of the Orient.” François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator.


Purple Oud 



“Purple Oud expresses an Oriental dream as depicted in a vivid, warm painting. It’s a sparkling oud that sees powerful wood combined with lively notes. Orange blends with fresh spices such as Pink Peppercorn and Saffron. This shimmering oud will seduce those who like the animal strength of this heady wood, albeit a polished, brightened version that plays out in the background.” François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator.



Oud Rosewood



“The powerful and contrasting woods of Oud Rosewood give it a strong, immediately evocative signature. It comes from the family of fragrances that arouse thrilling sensations, it is imbued with a deep sensuality that is both soft and powerful. Its trail is as intense as it is mysterious.” François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator.


These Eid gifting exclusives are available across the Middle East for a limited period.
