PERFUMER: Celine Barel
Perfectly Marvelous is inspired by Mrs. Vreeland’s quote, “If it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived!” to create Perfectly Marvelous. This eau de parfum was also inspired by Mrs. Vreeland’s visits to a dear friend on the coast of Tunisia, whose home and garden walls were lined in jasmine.
Capturing the audacious spirit of Diana Vreeland, this fragrance is a passionate fragrance built around a jasmine absolute from India draped in a “glowing lava” accord of lacquered red sandalwood and pimento. Heady, elegant and voluptuous, jasmine sambac lends a glossy quality to the composition while evoking utmost eroticism. Cashmeran, a musk that evokes fire, combines with a mix of spices and resins for a crackling effect.
