The art of Perfume
“Among the five senses, smell is unquestionably the one that best gives the idea of immortality.” Salvador Dali
A multi-faceted talent, it was only natural for Salvador Dali to take an interest in fragrance - as it fell somewhere between art and fashion - another form of artistic expression.
In 1981, after completing the Apparition of the Aphrodite of Knidos painting, he sketched a perfume bottle, drawing inspiration from the sensual lips and nose of the goddess of beauty and love. It is this sketch that would inspire the DALI fragrance launched in 1983, in a crystal numbered limited edition.
Chosen by the Master, the feminine fragrance is a sensuous accord blending the rarest and purest varieties of jasmine, the flower he often wore tucked behind his ear as he painted, and rose.
The first artist's fragrance in the world, this "sculptured bottle" is a true work of art that marked the creation of a Salvador Dali fragrance collection for women and men, still inspired by the artist’s imagination and branded with the renowned Dali lips signature.
