Exclusive: A Look Back at Christian Dior's Most Iconic Perfume Ads

Updated 10/26/18

You made it through the workweek—congratulations! You deserve some beauty eye candy, and what better way to visually indulge than by perusing some vintage couture perfume ads? In honor of the brand-new Dior J’Adore ad featuring the ageless Charlize Theron (dripping in molten gold, which we're beginning to think is her natural state), Dior Beauty gave Byrdie an exclusive look through the archives at some of its most iconic fragrance ad campaigns through the years. From the first-ever J'Adore ad we all instantly recognize to the one with Monica Bellucci wrapped in a snake for Hypnotic Poison in 2008, take a walk down memory lane with these timeless, glamorous mementos from the past.

Then peek the brand-new campaign for J'Adore, shot by Romain Gavras.
