A salty, oakmoss-green and crisp, rose and peony are flanked by a haunting woody warmth (Dior 1991). The opening is sublime. Other delicate florals emerge in a bed of amber hued beauty. Airy yet opulent, Dune is a sunny, late summer or early fall day at an ocean beach – one with the smell of rose bushes and green woods wafting from land to sea. And into the drydown it sweetens and mellows to a nothing but a kiss of the sun.
