Key Notes of Diamonds and Rubies

What Does Diamonds and Rubies Smell Like

Upon the first encounter with Diamonds and Rubies by Elizabeth Taylor, you are greeted by a crisp, fruity note of peach, punctuated with the classic, deep aroma of red rose. The presence of lilac adds a subtle, light floral undertone, effectively ushering the nose into this wonderfully crafted scent journey.

As the perfume settles, the floral aspects take a step back, letting a bold blend of spices come through. The spice aroma is robust and assertive, yet it does not overpower; instead, it masterfully intertwines with the soft, exotic scent of jasmine and the trace hint of orchid, creating an interesting dynamic between warmth and floral charm.

In the end, Diamonds and Rubies settles into a comfortingly familiar aroma, offering a rich and comforting vanilla scent as the star of the show. The sweet creaminess of vanilla is gently grounded by the warm, earthy note of amber, and accentuated with a slightly sharp cedar accent. The scent journey ends on this soft, sweet, yet intriguingly warm note, leaving behind an unforgettable trail and a craving for more.

Review of Diamonds and Rubies

Diamonds and Rubies by Elizabeth Taylor, launched in 1993, is an attractive choice for those who enjoy an assertive scent that compels without overwhelming. Its floral and spicy profile is the most noticeable, giving it a certain daring appeal. The spicy aspect, in particular, unfolds beautifully against the backdrop of sweet and powdery tones, which add an intriguing depth without becoming cloying.

Primarily suited for women, this perfume has a particularly strong appeal to the mature audience, for its scent is reminiscent of classic fragrances without seeming outdated. Its floral heart, dominated by spices and jasmine, is comforting and familiar, while the vanilla and amber base provides a warm, enveloping finish.

As an Eau de Toilette, it possesses respectable staying power. It doesn't fade too quickly, ensuring you'll carry its distinctive scent for most of your day or night out. However, be mindful of its sillage. While it's not overpowering, it certainly announces its presence, making this perfume less suited for more intimate or professional settings.

Diamonds and Rubies is most at home during the cooler months of fall and winter, where its spicy and warm notes can truly shine. It might be a bit too heavy during the summer months, but some might appreciate its bold character during a cooler evening.

Affordable and with a potent personality, Diamonds and Rubies is an intriguing choice for women who appreciate a fragrance with a bit of strength and spice. However, its assertive character might not be for everyone, particularly those who prefer lighter, more subtle scents.
