Diamonds and Sapphires

This is a typical Elizabeth Taylor fragrance (Elizabeth Taylor 1993), in my opinion, in that it almost overwhelms you but doesn’t quite and then you’re left smelling something ambery, vanillic and a little smoky in a very 1980’s/90’s style. The green heliotrope and musky melon add more depth, density and interest. And rhubarb adds even more intrigue. Of course, as a vintage parfum this lasted a long time on the skin. And, of course, it mellows more over time. Of all the Elizabeth Taylor fragrances I think this is one of my favorites as it has many memories attached to it and I love the sharp, melon infused edges.
