Gris Montaigne from Christian Dior’s La Collection Privée is a feminine Chypre Floral Eau de Pafurm that is easy to wear and smells beautiful and elegant on the skin.

Having worn this out a couple of times, the fragrance has unobstructive staying power, and lasts without have to re-apply during the day.

Featuring bergamot, rose, patchouli, amber, cedar, sandalwood and oakmoss, the top notes of Bergamot Essence grown in southern Italy, brings a distinct, sweet freshness to the fragrance.

At the heart, Damascena Rose Absolute native to Turkey, exudes a subtly spicy and almost masculine floral note.

At the base, Masedonian Moss Absolute evokes the forest floor, wavering between the moist, woody notes of mushrooms and the slightly tangy notes that recall its sea origins.

Gris Montaigne is a very versatile fragrance that can be worn during the day or evening, and everyone needs a fragrance that is is uncomplicated.

The packaging is very understated and simple and I really liked the round cardboard cover the fragrance comes in.
