Description

I think if I could wear this all day I would like when it dries down to the base, the Amber/Musk/Woody vanilla sounds divine! Diamonds and Rubies is a beautiful fragrance that was created by the famous perfumer Sophia Grojsman and is expertly blended.

This is very similar to Estee Lauder's Youth Dew - which was one of my mother's very favorite perfumes. Heavy from the benzoin and amber, and also replete with allspice or British Mixed Spice - keep out of reach of children! On skin this impression lasts a while but then leaves and it translate itself into something boozy (as in a liquor more so then pure alchool, to be precise rum and cola, or something alike).I don’t need to add much to the descriptive reviews, I am just going to do a comparison to Nahema and Tentations.

It is potent for being an edt in both persistence and sillage, I prefer to spray this on the mid of my body and on the wrist because it is so intense. Passion, her debut fragrance (1987) is Liz Taylor as Cleopatra, in full make up and costumes, atop that giant Sphynx as she enters Rome in triumph.Once opened, I was shocked to find that the spray nozzle was made of cheap clear plastic and not the usual gold plated finish I was used to. Not quite the motherly vibe of Tresor, not the mature composure of Paris, not the cloying lethality of Hypnotic Poison, but somewhere in there. Surprisingly gourmand and not at all like the original White Diamonds, although they both share a retro/vintage flair. A spicy peachy-rose that oddly reminds me of the smell of Anna Sui nail polishes (I'm serious about this - I can't seem to find people talking about this but I swear Anna Sui scents her nail polishes with something extra).

There is even a play-doh nuance, doll head characteristic abaut it but less pronounced and round then that in Dior Hipnotic Poison and the likes. Diamond and Rubies on my skin is very different from Charlie Gold, its main notes are rose and spicy peaches on an amber/benzoin/vanilla . I always trial perfumes in different ways, so after doing light sprays I went to my guest bathroom and sprayed myself like 5 times to see if more notes would come out.Its deep, and full and as soon as I sprayed it, this full bodied warmth filled both nostrils and surrounded me in this beautiful perfumed cloud. The only one of Elizabeth Taylor's fragrances that I tried before was White Diamonds and I found that quite harsh, but Diamonds and Rubies is very different. The rose is a romantic note in perfume but one never feels like it's a big old bouquet of red roses.
