I really love this scent. I know it's a cheap perfume, but I don't care, it's a musky floral which is exactly what I love. The EDP is VERY strong, I dab lightly and it lasts all day. I also got a large .5oz sample of the perfume as a bonus with the bottle and it is just as nice. Both bottles will last forever because of the strength, which is the way perfumes should be anyway. There's nothing I hate more than buying an expensive perfume that vanishes from my skin w/in a couple hours.

I personally don't think it's old ladyish but a lot of the perfumes I like get called old ladyish by reviewers. That's OK, the perfumes they like I usually find too chemical, fruity, or sweet. To each their own. I didn't start getting into actual perfumes until I got into my late twenties and had a professional job. I still like body sprays, mostly for the summer and weekends, I used to prefer them to perfume. But for most work days in the fall and winter, I now prefer musky perfumes, they are for the more mature woman. :)

Even though I think Elizabeth Taylor was a very beautiful woman her perfume... not so much.my friend got it for her birthday when she was 15 and it reminded us of an older woman.. We kinda just sprayed it at eachother and reacted like it was poison lol... It smells horrid to me.. and is pretty on the outside. Don't reccomend

A friend got into our car and filled it with a gorgeous scent. It was heavenly and I couldn't get enough of it. I asked what she was wearing and she said White Diamonds. I was so in love with the fragrance that I bought some for myself. Unfortuately, on me it smelled horrible! Not just not as nice as on her, but awfuI, at least to my nose. I gave her the bottle. This experience underscores the fact that one's chemistry affects the perfumes we wear and there are no universals. It's really fascinating.

White Diamonds is a LOUD, in-your-face white floral not for the faint of heart (and those unwilling to try perfumes outside ones comfort zone). It starts with an aldehydic jasmine/tuberose/magnolia blast and pretty much stays that way all throughout its very long dry down, with touches of musk peeking out after the first hour or so.

I don't understand the grandma connotations, but White Diamonds is definitely more for a mature audience rather than a teenager. This is for a woman who has long since ceased caring what other people think of her, and blazes her own path. However she's a bit too strong for me to handle, and while I like White Diamonds, I'll need to spray it onto a cotton ball and dab rather than spray directly onto skin. I have the EDP, and wouldn't rebuy as I doubt I'd use up what I have.

Nice bottle containing a terrible fragrance. It is overpowering and not elegant at all. It is (whether people like it or not) appropriate for a very, very old lady (in her 80īs)and vulgar in a young woman.

The only perfume I use! I've used it for 15 years. I love the smell. Tread lightly though, you only need a tiny amount, which is great because then the bottle lasts a long time. I see a lot of reviews saying it's an "old lady's perfume". Not true... to me anyways.

I've had so many people tell me how nice I smell. People have actually come up and sniffed me! haha.

Perfume works differently for everyone though, you definitely have to have, what I call, the "right body chemistry" to pull off certain scents. This one works perfectly for me and I recommend it!

I confess to being a perfume snob and a seeker of the impossible to find classic and/or obscure. I also (until discovering White Diamonds) wear (wore) only dry greens and the occasional oriental (no sweet florals for me, and tuberose?- gack!). Well, I stand corrected - went to the mall one hot night to walk around in the A/C and sample some Diors, sprayed Dune on one wrist and needed something for the other side. DH picked up WD, said "try this" - so I humored him. Hours later, I was still sniffing my right wrist and muttering "cheap designer perfume, eh . . ."). I ran out and got my very own 1 oz bottle - it's great being an old lady. I invite (dare) y'all to join me.

I bought it in walmart on a whim . One of the most beautiful ladies ' line of perfumes !

0 .5 fl oz for almost $20...Sometimes when we buy expensive things we , atleast me , feel luxurious...In this case when i bought it i had that feeling,but when i used it 'not so much' ...

The Staying power is Good but i'm not into this kind of scent...I like the bottle though especially the lid .With teeny tiny , sparkly stones ...Adds Beauty to the fragrance shelf...

But anyway i'll finish the bottle and not buy again.

been around a long time
price is ok not more than $25 if at TJ Maxx, Target, etc
I spray it away from me, a big spritz, like an air freshener after shower and it smells great.
This will last and all folks around like it
If you put directly on body ( wrists, cleavage, etc) it could be over bearing
I don't know why the 18-25 crowd is buying this. I cannot imagine you beautiful young ladies with something that is this heavy.
i will buy again
I'm scared to order perfume off the web-I've had problems with stale ordor and just tight down bad luck with them

I used to wear this is occasionally back in middle school. It would always turn on me after awhile of wearing though. It would smell sour to me or like chicken soup.
I work at a nursing home and I was walking by another hall and smelled this amazing sweet powdery smell wafting about. I walked around to find out where it was coming from and a resident there was spritzing some White Diamonds all over her. I couldn't it was actually White Diamonds. I went out that day and bought me a small bottle of it in hopes that I could wear it without that sour smell. For the most part it smells really good on me. I spray it on my clothes rather than my skin, because it smells better to me that way. The scent pretty much stays the same on my clothes and I love it! On my clothes it's a beautiful sweet powder smell, and on my skin it gets a little muskier.
I have read that it has been reformulated, and I actually think it's for the better. It smells so much better than what I remember it smelling like.
I do plan on buying another bottle when I eventually run out of this one.
