You likely know him as the man behind one of the most legendary fashion houses, but what you probably don't know is that late designer Christian Dior drew much inspiration -- especially for the label's intoxicating fragrances -- from his childhood garden, which is now maintained as part of the Christian Dior Museum in Normandy, France.

For all the details, including which flowers were Dior's favorites and information on how you can experience the gorgeous greenery firsthand, visit our delightfully decorative sister site ShelterPop.

What fashionista wouldn't want to stroll the grounds that influenced one of the industry's most important designers?

And if you can't swing the trip to France, ShelterPop also offers info on planting your very own Parisian-style garden.
