Diane, created by von Furstenberg who is a mom of two children and grandmother of three, is made in France like all the world's best fragrances. This fragrance was launched at Fashion's Night Out this month. As DVF's first scent, this fragrance is both fresh and sensual relying on boldly intermingling two florals: the Frangipani and Violet nicely set off with a light, but noticeable zing of myrrh, musk and patchouli. The musk, in particular, stirs up vintage memories of disco and the late 70s in my mind.
I've been a DVF admirer since I graduated high school in 1974, the same year she took the fashion industry by storm with her iconic wrap dress. Since she's become a legend not only in her own rite as a fashion brand but also as a highly visible philanthropist for a variety of causes. Yet, for all she's accomplished, von Furstenberg says, "Children are my greatest creation." As a mom myself of four born within a year, including triplets, I could not admire her more for everything she's done as a high profile fashion designer and as a regular mom raising kids.
In addition to Diane Fragrance Perfumed Body Lotion in Seductive Gold ($45), other products in the new line include Eau De Parfum 50 ml ($85) and 100 ml ($110), Eau De Toilette 50 ml ($65) and 100 ml ($90), and a 2-piece Fragrance Gift Set ($85). There's even a gorgeous new Diane Fragrance Wrap Dress in Stones White ($345) that is being juxtaposed in store and online with the fragrance. Not only do I adore the new fragrance, I think that knock out dress may be calling out my name right now.
