The success of Elizabeth Taylor’s fragrance motivated many other celebrities to launch their own perfumes.
White Diamonds is a sheer floral fragrance, and an excellent example of a top classic Fragrance. The flowers and aldehydes harmonising perfectly in the top notes, together with the sharp base, give this fragrance an elegant vintage feel. Some call this an old lady’s perfume but if your chemistry is right it will work for you! Warm, strong and Seductive. Miss Taylor was one of the old-time Hollywood actresses who stood out in everything she did. She was completely womanly in a sensual way and that is how White Diamonds smells – womanly, powerful yet soft. The exotic floral notes and sweetish powder, with a hint of civet mixed in with the musk settles into a very soft and creamy, only slightly sweet scent, like expensive soap. Almost decadent in a casual way – a timeless classic. White Diamonds is NOT a “work-friendly” fragrance but it IS perfect for evenings.
This perfume was inducted into the Fragrance Foundation’s Hall of Fame in 2009.
