White Diamonds fragrance notes

Reviews of White Diamonds

A very bright, thick, white-floral perfume from Elizabeth Taylor.

Lily is immediately evident as a central player in this scent, and all the other notes seem to dance around it to create different accords: Herbal, floral, slightly resinous, creamy, earthy, and powdery. White Diamonds is slightly in the fougere class of scents, which gives it an old-school 1980's flair to it (but not in a gawdy, outdated way).

White Diamonds has gone on 25 years and counting as a staple at department and discount stores alike, and to this day it remains a classy, rich experience for women.

This was one of the more perfumed Christmases I've had in a while. On one end of the spectrum, my husband's gift of D.S. & Durga's Durga EDP. At the other, a White Diamonds gift set, purchased by an elderly family friend who admits she knows nothing about perfume but knows that I love it and the "lady at Walmart" said this was very pretty. It was a touching gesture, and after doing some reading I was excited to give it a go.

If you can make it through its aldehydic, intensely soapy opening, you'll be rewarded with an oldfashioned medley of sweet florals with just a hint of carnation-ey spice. Which is fun while it lasts, because the soap eventually reappears about an hour later and stays there for the dry down. At this point, White Diamonds smells not so much like something Liz Taylor wannabes would dab along their decolletage as a means of seduction and more like the kind of squeaky-clean-smelling soap that might be handed out by prim headmistresses at an all-girls boarding school.

Two hours later—poof!—it's gone. Maybe that's because it costs about a buck and some pennies to make but, still, it's an interesting relic of pop cultural perfumery and well worth sniffing while it lasts.

Massive top notes. In your face, with only two sprays. Sparkling and intense flower & aldehyde cocktail. Although the tuberose stands out, the flowers in the heart are all well-blended. Still, a very heavy perfume through the middle. This one, has always turned heads. Like Giorgio Beverly Hills from the old days, a little goes a long way. WD is a white floral with attitude.

There is a sheer lipstick accord layer, after time. The tuberose stays all through wearing. The base is somewhat loud, too, with its amber, patchouli, and sandalwood. Longevity is never-ending.

This was my signature scent for about 10 years (ages 23-33). I understand this one is widely reviled, but on me it must have been divine ... so many compliments, people wanting to hug and smell me (as strange as that sounds). I sprayed lightly ... hence, I wore the perfume, it didn't wear me. The right chemistry, style and personality are essential to pull it off.

I no longer wear it because it became ubiquitous and boring, but I can't wait to add White Diamonds Night to my collection ... that one is another WOW on me.

One of the most iconic fragrances of the late 20th century. This starts with a strong aldehydic opening, then dries down to floral with a tangy note. Classy without becoming an "Old lady"

Upon first application two things came instantly to mind. The first was that I recognized this. My late grandmother had worn it. The second was that lily and power combination which is very reminiscent of the now discontinued D&G feminine, which was my go to fragrance of the early 2000's. It's warm and comforting. Unfortunately it's lasting power is not great but it's projection is good.

I wouldn't say the aldehydes were particularly strong but I understand why they stand out to anyone who doesn't like them. It's not a really a modern fragrance and that can instantly put off those more accustomed to fruity floral's and gourmands but it certainly stands miles ahead of most celebrity fragrances out there.
