Diamonds is a fruity, floral fragrance. It has notes of lychee, raspberry, rose, freesia, lily of the valley, vetiver, cedar wood, patchouli and vanilla.
When you first spray it on, it smells strongly like candy, at least on my skin, which I didn’t like at all, but luckily that didn’t last long. However, I didn’t really enjoy the drydown either: vanilla and fruits. I personally do not like the scent of vanilla, and mixed with the fruits, it just smelt weird on me. My boyfriend didn’t like this scent either. However, perfumes react differently to each person’s body, so what smell bad on me may smell gorgeous on you. Just ask for a sample so you can try and see how it blends with your skin. The fragrance is not very original, but it is suitable for both daytime (even work) and nighttime.
The staying power is great. It lasted all day long without needing to be reapplied and I could still smell it on me the next morning, albeit faintly.
The packaging is pretty too. The multi-faceted glass bottle looks just like a diamond and is sparkling too!
Personally I didn’t like this scent at all, it just blended awfully with my skin. It’s not the most original fragrance on the market, but the staying power is great and the scent can be worn for any occasion. The packaging looks very nice as well.
