Hello lovelies, I was so excited when I stumbled upon an old issue of Architectural Digest featuring Elizabeth Taylor’s house in 2011 because I found some photos of her dressing table and vanity. The Estate of Elizabeth Taylor sent me a few of her perfumes, and I was thrilled to see them all on her dressing table, which means Elizabeth Taylor wore her fragrance.
What’s on her dressing table?
The launch of her first perfume in 1987, Passion, was the beginning of a fragrance empire that would be one of the most successful in history. Passion for Men was launched in 1989, and other perfumes followed, such as the exotic Diamonds & Emeralds, the sparkling Diamonds & Sapphires, and the dramatic Diamonds & Rubies. Most celebrities backed fragrances quickly fall from view once it is left to compete with the Chanel N°5s of the world, however, when a scent is formulated well, cleverly marketed and retails for the right price, the sky is the limit. Elizabeth Taylor’s perfumes are one of the first and few to have any staying power at the perfume counter.
