These estates enjoy a unique position between the sea and the mountains. Geological and climatic conditions give their flowers exceptional qualities. But above all, gathering these flowers requires an intense human effort.
The pickers collect these exceptional flowers with the utmost care and attention, to ensure all the essence is preserved: jasmine can only be harvested at dawn, before sunrise, after the flowers have blossomed during the night.
A profusion of exceptional flowers is required to make Dior fragrances: 300,000 flowers are needed to produce 1 kilo of rose absolute and 600 to 700 kilos of Grasse jasmine make 1 kilo of absolute.
