PERFUMER: Yves Cassar
Absolutely Vital is an ode to Mrs. Vreeland’s love for India and passion for sandalwood.
Diana Vreeland always kept a tin of sandalwood on her dressing table and each day as she left the house she would pull the cork from the tin and dab a bit behind her ears. She declared this step absolutely vital!
Absolutely Vital is a mysterious and enveloping woody composition of Indian sandalwood. This precious and refined wood is wrapped in a silken floral bouquet of Turkish rose and jasmine absolute from Egypt and softened with enveloping balms of myrrh resin and opoponax resin. Finished with nuances of vanilla, the skin is caressed in a warm veil of opulent sensuality.
