Can’t make it to Paris this spring? Dia Woman may be the next best thing. Like a warm April afternoon in the Jardins de Tuileries after a morning rain, Dia Woman blooms with sophistication, freshness, and Right Bank luxury. On first sniff, Dia Woman’s unmistakable French heritage shows in a tingle of fig and bergamot. Almost immediately, the fragrance deepens to welcome an armload of fragrant spring flowers, including rose, jasmine, neroli, and iris, all smelling as if they’re drenched in rain water. Running through Dia Woman’s floral richness is a grounding of incense and sandalwood, reminiscent of the dim churches tucked between the city’s lavish boutiques. We imagine a beautiful woman meeting her lover for lunch at the Plaza Athénée. He leans forward. “You smell so wonderful,” he says. “I know,” she says in reply.

As a disciple and close friend of the legendary Edmond Roudnitska (creator of “Le Parfum de Thérèse”), Jean-Claude Ellena began his career with a minimalistic approach to perfumery. Since then, he has developed this approach into his own distinctive style, which is continually informed by his elegant and quiet way of being, and has been compared by his contemporaries to watercolor sketches and chamber music. Jean-Claude says that a perfume must be like “a soft caress; nothing must shock, nothing must shout”. Roudnitska’s minimalism never left him, however, and his compositions remain focused around a single ingredient, avoiding repetition.
Jean-Claude Ellena was born in Grasse into a family of perfumers. His training began at age 17, in the most prestigious laboratories – in Grasse, Paris, New York and Geneva – where he always saw himself as self-taught. Jean-Claude met Frédéric Malle at Roure when he was working on Bulgari’s “Eau au Thé Vert”. He composed one perfume a year for Editions de Parfums before joining Hermès. He is now back as a full-fledged author at Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle.
