Diana Vreeland Parfums Debuts
The late fashion editor Diana Vreeland has inspired a five-scent line, fittingly called Diana Vreeland Parfums. Available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, the unisex scents range in price from $185 to $250. The perfumes are named after the iconic Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue editor’s favorite expressions, such as “perfectly marvelous.” Luxurious body cream and candles will be available for the holidays and lipstick is planned for next year. “She lived in an olfactive house with candles, incense burning, potpourri. It was a world of fragrances, always changing,” said Alexander Vreeland of his late grandmother.
