Dianne Brill, the "it-girl of the 1990’s New York party scene"*, has launched her debut fragrance, Dianne Brill Eau de Parfum:
Ms. Brill says: “Instead of giving you a list of the many precious ingredients in this fragrance, I would like to offer you a moment to FEEL THE SCENT.”
At the top note… The first feeling you have when you slip it on… … is the feeling you get when you are standing on a balcony, looking over an orange and purple sunset near the water. In this perfect moment you feel fulfilled. Fruit, flowers and a swirling warm cool breeze
As the fragrance evolves, in its heart, as the scent heats up on your skin… …you feel the vibration. Tonight is your night, you are the center of the attention, you are the pulse of tonight. Hot spices, warm nutty woods and fire
Over time, as the scent has heated up, cooled down, and melted into your own essence, the lucky ones that can get close enough to you to FEEL your scent, inhale deeply your warm signature scent… the echo of you.
Dianne Brill Eau de Parfum is available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum, and can be pre-ordered now at Beautyhabit.

Update: see a review of Dianne Brill Eau de Parfum.
From what I hear, it's going to be a floriental scent, with a touch of ozone… fruits n spices n woods… that's what most of the perfumes consist of. I'd rather have the list of the notes
I wonder if Dianne Brill can FEEL me skipping over this one completely.
I'm sorry- what year is this exactly? Oh, 2008. So why am I caring?
Apparently they did not fail Dianne Brill
That is suprising…wouldn't have guessed from the description.
Heated up, cooled down, and THEN melted. Well.
Oooh! I think I remember her! Wasn't she the one with the giant rack who looked sorta like a drag queen?!? Perversely, then, I want this to be great. Just so I can wear it and feel shame, like if that Desperate Housewives thing had been any good at all. (Remember that one?)
With you on the ozone, then — that would pretty much be the KOD for me. On the other hand, something that smelled like Kenzo Jungle Elephant would be perfect!
Spy Magazine used to make so much fun of her; their invariable description (they attached one to everybody, giving us such timeless classics as “short-fingered vulgarian Donald Trump”) was “fatgirl”. She did kinda look like a drag queen, which meant she fit right in with the eighties New York party crowd.
Makes me wonder why she's coming out with a scent NOW, though. Her time has come and gone. Still, you know, if I saw it in the store, I'd give it a sniff.
L, money saved.
Apparently she has a cosmetics line, and assume it is doing well? Or else hard to see the point of this.
My husband wants to know exactly what to expect when he feels my echo. He is frightened of this scent.
BTW – “IT girl”??… oh please, she has nothing on those Miller sisters…nothing at all.
“the scent heats up on your skin… …you feel the vibration. Tonight is your night, you are the center of the attention, you are the pulse of tonight. Hot spices, warm nutty woods and fire . . ” no more aching muscles, Ben Gay's fire and hot spices are warming your nutty woods.
Oh, yeah, wrong demographic for me again. . .
The weather here today is gales and torrential rain. It was still practically dark when I got up this morning. And summer has been rubbish.
So thank you so much for cheering me right up with this satirical piece of perfume puffery.
What? You mean it's *real*?!
*Falls off chair*
Btw – had to Google Diana Brill – her and Amanda Lepore – separated at birth?
*falls off chair*
I remember trying this and thinking that it was actually quite nice, just a tad too sweet for a skank-loving lady like me to wear. But I loooooved the fishnet-stocking covered bottle in a gltzed-up wooden cigar box (it seems Brill's mother came from Cuba, hence the cigar box. Said the SA) packaging. Almost bought it for the cigar box alone. Now if it would make me grow Brill's (probably false) rhinestone-studded eyelashes, I'd buy it straight away
I've heard some lame fragrance descriptions before (CK ONE Summer with it's 'waterfall' accord) but this one is just ridiculous. 'Feel' me not buying this one.
Tell him to expect the feel of money draining out of the household accounts, LOL…
Chandler Burr likes it — see his review at http://tinyurl.com/6b2dzc
Seriously, I'd buy that box.
Ah yes, so he does, but I remain wary, not least because in my eyes, CB's card will be forever marked for liking Delices de Cartier! On this occasion I'm with LT on that one – “fruity vile”.
Well, there isn't any writer that I *always* agree with, but after reading his review I'm at least assuming it's worth trying.
You are right of course – I was just being mischievous, and should perhaps have added a smiley to that effect!
'S ok — and I didn't mean to sound cranky!
Ditto. I just can't get over his call on that one. He also hates the new Chloe, which I rather like, although I agree with him that it is one-note, synthetic and dryer-sheet-y.
I just received my purchase from beautyhabit today, and they attachted a few samples for me. One of them was the cutest sample box ever, with a generous 2.5 ml of Dianne Brill EdP. Not is the little box a piece of art, but the glass vial is awfully cute and decorated with lil flowers. The juice is NOT what I thought it would be at all. It is a somehow timeless, spicy, elegant fragrance with a youthful twist to it. I can smell some woods and
oriental spices, with some JUST RIGHT florals. I really like this scent! I cannot detect ANY ozone/marine/warm breeze notes, which is good. Just by looking at this sample I can tell that the bottle must look gorgeous. Gotta have it now!
