Reviews of Sparkling White Diamonds

Sparkling White Diamonds is another fragrance where I seem to be in the minority with my experience.
It was repeatedly called "soft", "sparkling" and "fresh", with romantic associations ranging from Elsa of Disney's Frozen, to snow angels and ice queens which added to my curiosity.

Coming straight to the point, this perfume did not have any 'soft' nor 'fresh' characteristics to my understanding of these words, opening with a bitter-sweet sourness like that of a dried tangerine peel, paired with a rather sharp white floral on a heavy, sweetened base and strong musk. I had expected to feel some kind of breezy coolness, based on some reviews and also suggested by the name and its beautiful design.

While the "cold" aspect might be there, it is a static one, mostly recalling powder soap with no air stirring. Instead of the anticipated refreshing, sparkling creaminess, my nose was pricked with sharp icicles which remained without any smoothness till the dry down.

Every time wearing this (even with a light hand), in the open air or at home, the potency of the mix of bitter citrus, florals and musky heavy amber irritated me so much that I could not concentrate on my tasks: I felt as if I was constantly forced to put my nose into a freshly opened box of facial towlettes.
Since the faint remnant on my pyjama smelt clean and much more pleasant the next morning, I think I might've enjoyed this more if it was less intense.

This being a very strong, clean and sweet ambery floral perfume with good affordability and longevity of a whole day, I recommend testing first if you are not accustomed to some headstrong powderiness.

I got this for a Christmas gift and when i sprayed it
on my skin it opened with an sharp metallic scent of
aldehyde and i thought this must be an inexpensive
version of Chanel no 5 Unlike chanel it dried sweeter
and more softer florals came steeping though the notes.
What Sparkling Diamonds conjours up for me is a sight of
fresh white Lilies wet from the nocturnal summer's rain
giving off an sweet aroma from their long and sinuous
Petals blowing in the clear summer sky Gardenias blooms
under the Sun's gentile rays the reveal it's pure and
unblemished petals of Elegant white folds with it's
stately and trademarked buttery sweet scent, dries
with elusive jasmine blooming in a shady bush with it's
herbal greenish smell gives it an earthy quality.

Rose opens the middle with a velvety heart then
deep intoxicating of vain narcissus adds to the vanity
of beauty, The drydown is cloyinish with amber adds
the animalistic in us and dries with dry woods.

Sparkling Diamonds i can put in three words

Breezy Sexy and Beautiful.

I like this one seems to have a woody-floral midnote that is nice as it starts to dry down

My sister wanted this for Christmas last year so I got her a big set of it. Curious as to her love for it I sprayed a bit on after she opened it and yeech.....lemon pledge. And that note seemed to last a looonnngggg time. However it finally dried down to a nice little floral. Nothing special, for me anyway and I cannot get past the lemon pledge opening. Sis loves it though and if the little Napoleon type person is happy we are all happy.

I was extremely surprised by this fragrance. It's really very pretty, surprisingly fresh, and the citrus (neroli) top notes are delicious.

It's nicely balanced and very, very feminine and pretty. It's a little strong, so it should probably be applied with a light hand, but I really like it and find it very elegant.
