I like the smell of this perfume. I received it as a gift for Christmas and I occasionally wear it for special events. I agree with other reviewers that the scent is STRONG. It has really good staying power though. It will last on me most of the day. It's better for winter than for summer for sure as it will come off even stronger with the heat (or if you still want to wear it during warmer weather, go LIGHTLY with it).

I would say that it's a more mature scent. I wouldn't call it an "old lady" perfume because compared to other perfumes I've smelled that I would classify as "old lady" this one is younger than that. I would say suitable for someone in their 30s/40s. I'll still wear it and will likely re-buy but I tend to prefer younger scents.

I don't even own this product but it's just so vile. It's pretty much what you imagine modern-day Elizabeth Taylor to reek of: heavy, stale baby powder. This is a perfume from hell.

This is so old-school -
NOT old lady -

Very strong, and very recognizable, but still, I really like it. I remember thinking that Elizabeth Taylor was the most glamourous, beautiful woman ever (remember those White Diamonds "these always bring me luck" commercials? LOVE them!) and I wanted to be like her at age 10, so I always borrowed this from my grandma. Yes, lots of grandmas wear this scent, but I still love it - I will say I don't wear it in summer or early fall - too heavy and cloying for the humidity, but it's still great -

I love the bottle, too - but the one I have hardly has 1/2 gone after owning it for over 4 years - so it really does last a long time.

I used to like this fragrance in high school but man is it HEAVY. It's a mature scent so I don't know why in the world I was wearing it in high school, no one younger than about 30 should wear this. It's an ok scent but a little goes a LOOONG way and it actually smells rather cheap and generic.

In high school after my junior high crush on Ck one, I fell in love with this. It smells beautiful but I think it smells so old now. Not my style at all anymore.

Oh, GOD!! I don't just hate this scent, I wish it would vanish into obscurity--it's that repulsive! I've smelled a good number of perfumes that I've disliked, but this one is the icing on the cake. It's one of those scents where I smell it and instantly turn away. In fact, I turn my head and gag so quickly I couldn't describe it to you if I tried. One time my mother had a hand fan that she insisted on spraying with this stuff...worst idea ever! Before the fans of this start jumping down my throat, I'm not quick to label any scent as 'old lady' and yes, I am well over the age of 12. Even in heavier perfumes, I try to find the notes and label it as a a more 'mature' smell. But White Diamonds is truly an 'old lady' perfume!

I dont know why its taken me so long to review this fragrance as it is very popular and i have purchased it for my mother but here we go. White Diamonds rocks my world. There are three criterion fragrances must meet to become favorites of mine. 1) They must be strong 2) They must be floral and 3) They must give excellant sillage. White Diamonds meets all three criterion. White Diamonds is a very, very musky, incensey, smokey floral. Most reivews here state this smells like an "old lady". Old lady is not what i imagine. I like to imagine a stereotypical witch with her broomstick walking through a norweigian forest. Dense, black clouds are in the sky and there is a light drizzle. A forest fire is burning a few miles from her cave in which she lives. Outside the entrance to her cave all types of mystical, dark flowers are in bloom. She enters her cave and builds a fire to keep warm which begins to smoke and then she lights some incense she discovered during her travels in Asia. Exotic cats that emit a civet, musk type scent make their home outside her cave too. She is a good witch and is proud of her cave and the scent which envelopes it....White Diamonds.

Can we say this product is past its prime, had its time? I guess a more mature woman like my grandma would like this. I just find myself referencing it whenever there is a pungent, old-people smell. I got this as a giftset, pretty irrelevant for my age in my opinion. Knowing how it smells, I regifted it to none other than my great aunt. She loved it! Whoopee!

My mother got a gift set for this fragrance a while ago, it smells so beautiful and floral on her (shes 36) so i tried it out (im 17) but it smells like a public rest room on me...not good.

I guess its more suited to older woman.

This was my very first perfume purchase when I was 16. I just loooooved it in high school and wore it all the time, until I realized I smelled like an old lady. Oh well. I still love it, and it brings back fond memories of boyfriends and high school football games. :) It's an older "classic" scent that is immediately recognizable, but I still love it.
