Diana Vreeland started in 1936 when she became a fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar. Can you imagine; she established herself as a controversial visionary who had an ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, personalities and photographers. She wasn’t only responsible for the fashion look of the magazine but for fashion of the time.
Next to that she was a memorable writer, a daring perfume lover of for example Opium and Chanel nr.5. When it comes to fragrances and layering she wasn’t afraid to go all the way. Using a hypodermic needle to object fragrance on pillows was one of many ways to create a perfume aura around her and others. She loved all colors yet she is often associated with the color red, which is recognizable in the packaging of Diana Vreeland perfumes. Red is a great clarifier and the color of love, is it not? It tends to make all colors more beautiful.
When creating this new perfume collection the perfumers kept Diana’s theatrical character in mind by adding more depth and longer lasting ingredients to avoid exact similarity with the existing perfumes from the Vreeland collection.
I am in love with the Simply Divine fragrance as it’s embracing. It carries Tubereuse notes, mixed with ylang-ylang and orange-blossom. Sexy as hell and Simply divine.
With Outrageous Daringly different based on oud, wood and leather notes are intensified for that theatrical va va voom experience.
If Diana was still around I would have loved to smell if these new perfumes develop just as marvelous on her skin as they do on mine. “Do something great, don’t ever be compromising”, is one of the many phrases she stood for. I couldn’t agree more. Be Daringly Different, Outrageously Vibrant or Simply Divine. The choice is yours.
