Fragrant Friday - White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor

I finally decided on a Christmas gift for my mother in law - White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor which is more of a classic than I knew - it's actually been around for 20 years! One of the first and certainly the most successful of celebrity fragrances - it's just one of those scents that you either love or hate - but never forget!

With top notes of Amazon Lily, Italian Neroli and Crisp Aldehyde; heart notes of Egyptian Tuberose, Narcisse, Turkish Rose, Jasmine and Italian Orris; and base notes of Amber, Oakmoss, Patchouli and Sandalwood.

The White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor Collection includes:

Parfum - 7ml - $80
Eau de Parfum Spray Naturel - 50ml - $83
Eau de Toilette Spray Naturel - 50ml - $60
Perfumed Body Lotion - 200ml - $52
Elizabeth Taylor at the launch of her fragrance in 1991. Of her White Diamonds fragrance she said "I think most women love diamonds and this perfume captures the sparkle of diamonds. Every woman, no matter how small it it, covets a diamond. If you have it as a perfume it's the same sense of sparkle and uplift. It's diamonds in a bottle."
And because I take everything Liz says to heart, I decided to pick up Taylor's famous 33-carat diamond ring, a little gift she received from Richard Burton now renamed The Elizabeth Taylor Diamond, at the recent Christie's auction. You'll be happy to know I got it for a steal - a mere $8.8 million!
