I thought this smell was mediocre. When I tested it, my friend and the shop assistant thought it was beautiful and said it smelt like "being on holiday in the sun".
I disagreed. Whilst it does smell rather luxurious and expensive, it's too bold and strong for my liking. It's the kind of fragrance that makes you sneeze!
It also smells a bit too vintage - which may be perfect for your gran - but not so much a young lady in her prime.
I was going to buy this for my mum but I may opt for Liz's 'Violet Eyes' instead, as I believe it smells sweeter.

Each to their own opinion, especially with perfumes as we all smell things differently and our own natural chemicals can greatly affect the scent.
I love this, I do not consider this an old lady perfume at all (I'm 21). I have never smelled this on anyone other than my mother and she started wearing it at age 23 all the way to 34. She passed away in 2005 so I have a bottle to spritz every now and then to remember her.
On my skin it is potent until it settles hours later, however on my clothes it smells divine and elegant. Exactly how it smelled on my mother :)
Bottle is gorgeous but price in NZ is HORRIBLE. $145 for 100mL though I got this on sale yesterday for $69.
Make sure you smell this in person and don't play a gamble with an online purchase!!
I only use this in my clothes drawers to make my clothes smell fresher and it doesn't "clash" with my other HG perfumes.

According to Forbes Magazine, "White Diamonds" is the most successful scent ever launched by a celebrity. I am not ashamed to admit that I own a bottle of this, but God knows I own a bottle of just about everything. And no, I am not yet a member of the AARP. Yup..old lady in a bottle. The smell you remember when you took the pink ribbon-topped powder puff from it's base and annointed yourself in the white stuff. What saves "White Diamonds" for me is the dry down..it's soft, unoffensive, even inviting. Grandmom morphs into you cool, approachable great aunt. If you already own "White Linen" you really don't need "White Diamonds." I'll keep both for days when I am feeling a bit nostalgic for the days when this was what perfume was all about. Could they have even envisioned a scent like "Angel" being all the rage years later?

Elizabeth Taylor was a stunning woman, loved her in Cleopatra. But unfortunately I have nothing but negative memories of this fragrance. My mom used to wear this until I begged her to use another fragrance. I think she started using Sunflower afterwards. Still not my cup of tea, but better than White Diamonds.

Smells great but is definitely your old aunt's favorite. Gonna get it when I'm older probably.

I've known about this perfume since I was born. My grandma's been wearing it forever. I don't mean this in a rude way, but this is the definition of an old lady's perfume. It's very musky (which I can't stand). Musky scents used to be in style back in the day, that's probably the reason why this generally attracts an older crowd. Musky scents nauseate me & give me headaches, which is what this perfume does. The bottle itself is beautiful. I have a bottle (that I've never used) that is solely kept on my dresser because I like the way the bottle looks so much. If I were to rate this perfume based on just the packaging alone, it would be a 5/5. But, I can't get over the scent.
I do like it in a sense, for the fact that the smell gives me a memory of my grandma. Every time I smell the bottle that I have, I get a sense of her back.

I just love White Diamonds. I know this fragrance doesn't get a lot of love, but I think it's beautiful---a lush, creamy, musky white floral that's perfect to waft up from the cleavage.
I wear the parfum. It's womanly, full-bodied and complex. It surrounds me with jasmine, tuberose and hints of violet. There's musk, too, which makes this slightly naughty. However, it's a clean musk, so this fragrance is still ladylike---just not innocent.
I could see this working for a nighttime ball, an afternoon tea or just out shopping. Any time you want to feel feminine and classy. The silage and longevity are excellent.
