DelRae explains, “On one of my first trips to the Louvre in Paris, I was captivated by a painting, Diane Chasseresse, depicting the French renaissance figure, Diane de Poitiers, the mistress of Henri II, and the great rival of Henri’s wife, the remarkable Catherine de Medici. Diane was a woman of learning, compassion, glamour and guile. She dressed always in black and white, wore simple but fabulous jewels, was an accomplished equestrian, and became a woman of mythical beauty, intelligence and charm— my muse for Mythique.”
This perfume centers around very beautiful and costly Orris butter from Florence, together with flowers found in the gardens of Diane’s spectacular chateau in the Loire Valley, Chenonceaux. The superlative quality of the Orris butter used in this perfume, together with other exceptional raw materials, make for a fragrance of exquisite elegance.
