Christian Dior releases Escale a Parati

by Katie on May 30, 2012

It’s been hot in London. Too hot to handle without something cool and refreshing in a long tall glass or sprayed on you from a bottle promising thoughts of cool sea breezes and landscapes.

Enter Dior’s latest addition to their Escales collection, Escale a Parati, as uplifting and fresh as the others (Portofino, Pondichery and Marquises) but with the subtle nuance of Brazilian shores and sandy beaches a la Astrud Gilberto, with its faint Brazilian Rosewood tones, reeking of greenness but also with hints of tonka bean (and note folks, I’m not usually a fan of said ingredient) which carries through a softness and adds a mellow timbre.

Escale a Parati is more slouchy ‘tall and tanned and young and lovely’ than serenading you with Italian pop by crooner Dany Brilliant like it’s Escale a Portofino counterpart or with the underground sound of Indian melodies as in the Escale a Pondichery offer.
Beautifully presented with it’s tinge of Tiffany eau de nil in packaging and in fragrance colour, Escale a Parati has all the trademarks of this superior group of collective fragrances – classy, fresh, uplifting, zesty and breathing sophisticated Summer in all their locations with degrees of subtlety brilliantly created by perfumer, Francois Demachy.
In this release, Demachy has been inspired by the lush green of Brazil with it’s minty freshness combined with the superior Amazon Rosewood. He then added Petigrain from Paraguay, Lemon from Argentina and a touch of piquancy with Cinnamon and Pink Peppercorns. The effect is dazzlingly seductive and feminine like a sexy Brazilian Samba.

Parati is gentle, though. Like an Isley Bros’ ‘Summer Breeze’ caught up in a South American moment. The sparkle of sun on water, vast beaches, the background tempo of a land pulsating with rhythm and the bursts of green, eau de nil and turquoise all make for quite an effect. You can practically hear ‘Desafino’ lulling you in the background.

Escale a Parati EDT (75ml) £52.50 (125ml) £74 is available nationwide from 2nd July 2012.
