Parfums Christian Dior is the perfumery and cosmetics (makeup and skincare) line of the French fashion house, Christian Dior S.A.. However, the line belongs to the perfumes and cosmetics portfolio of the world's largest luxury group, the LVMH Group.[1] Nevertheless, both Christian Dior S.A. and LVMH are headed by chairman Bernard Arnault, and Christian Dior S.A. is the major shareholder of LVMH.[2]

Begun in 1947 with the introduction of the women's Miss Dior perfume, Parfums Christian Dior has since come to include men's fragrances and a variety of cosmetics sold at Dior retail stores and fine cosmetics counters worldwide. It is headquartered at 33 Avenue Hoche in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France.[1]
