The Diana Vreeland line has launched their sixth fragrance, Smashingly Brilliant. The brand debuted last year with five fragrances (Simply Divine, Perfectly Marvelous, Outrageously Vibrant, Absolutely Vital and Extravagance Russe).
Smashingly Brilliant, created by [perfumer] Clement Gavarry, was inspired by Mrs. Vreeland's love for the island of Capri. A play on contrasts, the fragrance combines the zesty freshness of citrus notes with a deep textured background. The burst of Lemon Oil and Calabrian Bergamot Oil is enhanced with aromatic notes of verbena, basil, and juniper berries. A luxurious heart of Geranium Lemon Living creates a bridge to the sensual dry down of suede accord and enveloping woods, offering a trail of mysterious depth and raw elegance.
Diana Vreeland Smashingly Brilliant is available now at Neiman Marcus, in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, $250.
