White Diamonds

White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor (Elizabeth Taylor 1991) starts with a retro, strong aldehydic burst and then gradually warms into a gummy, sweet cocktail of floral notes, oak moss and a strong hint of musk and sandalwood.   As it continues tuberose, jasmine, rose, ylang ylang and neroli are the strongest with special emphasis on the ylang ylang and tuberose, although the jasmine creates a fruity, banana-like quality that stands out as well .

I can see why it’s named, White Diamonds.  It does have a luscious, sparkling quality that is reminiscent of diamonds and in its time it may have captured the essence of white diamonds even more than it may seem today.  I remember when it was worn and it did have a light capturing, clear, elegance that was more easy to grasp in the early 1990’s.  It’s a unique scent in any case…

Top notes: aldehydes, bergamot, neroli, orange and lily.  Middle notes: violet, rose and jasmine, ylang-ylang, Egyptian tuberose and narcissus.  Base notes: oak moss, patchouli, musk, sandalwood and amber.

So, one of the places we’re considering moving to is Seattle.  But I just read about the potential for deadly earthquakes and now I’m terrified to move there and live in a high rise.

So umm…

And then there’s this weekend! I’m pretty sure it’s going to be pleasant.  It’s the Fourth of July weekend here and we all like fireworks (intentional ones – nothing that originates from almost supernatural destruction caused by shifts in the Earth’s crust)…

More later. 🙂
