The Diana Vreeland line has launched Full Gallop, a new "addictive heliotrope" fragrance. Full Gallop was the name of a play about Vreeland that appeared in the early 1990s.
Created by master perfumer Carlos Benaim, this eau de parfum is a celebration of Diana Vreeland's love of dance. She discovered dancing as a young child. Along with crediting dance for her posture and high self-confidence, it also gave her a sense of rhythm and cadence throughout her life. She would forever reference and celebrate Diaghilev; Nijinski; The Ballets Russes; Irene and Vernon Castle; The Ziegfeld Follies; Maya Plisetskaya; and Nureyev.
Full Gallop strikes an attitude with a hypnotic pas de deux of heliotrope and orris that dance beneath a rich, warm canopy of amber and musk. Moroccan jasmine and coriander are accompanied by an unexpected twist of pepper. Finishing the unique character of this gorgeous fragrance is Turkish rose and osmanthus, wrapped in daring sensual musk.
Diana Vreeland Full Gallop is available now at Neiman Marcus, in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, $250.
