The success of Elizabeth Taylor
's fragrance has motivated many other celebrities to launch their own perfumes. White Diamonds
is a sheer floral fragrance, an example of top classics. The harmony of flowers and aldehydes in the top notes, together with the sharp base, give this fragrance an elegant vintage nuance. The top notes are aldehydes, bergamot, neroli, orange and lily. The heart unites the classical trio, violet, rose and jasmine, accompanied by ylang-ylang, Egyptian tuberose and narcissus. The base is composed of oak moss, patchouli, musk, sandalwood and amber. The perfume was created by Carlos Benaim
in 1991, and was inducted into the Fragrance Foundation's Hall of Fame in 2009.
