Meeting DVF

Tuesday, 28th Jun 2011
I met Diane Von Furstenburg last week at the London launch of her fragrance ‘Diane’.

She was amazing. Massively charismatic, utterly charming and innately stylish. Elegance personified.

I was completely overwhelmed. I grinned gormlessly at her as she spoke and literally couldn’t take my eyes off her. Her presence sent me into a state of bewilderment almost. Dumbfounded!

She talked passionately about her role as a designer, and also the inspiration for ‘Diane’ the fragrance. Before I had smelt it, I knew I would love it. Maybe it was when she said  ‘I put all my knowledge, power and seduction tips into this bottle’.

After Diane spoke, she circulated the room, sharing the fragrance and tying scented ribbon around her adoring audience’s wrists. And I was right, I loved the fragrance.

As she tied mine, I was still in this speechless state. Desperate to communicate with her, I forced out some words. And what came out was possibly the cheesiest line I have heard, let alone actually said, in a long while..”You are a true inspiration”….!  Not only this corny one liner, but it was accompanied by a spontaneous welling up, which I was not expecting in the slightest. One word. Embarrassing.

But the mighty DVF took it in her stride, was totally gracious and took pity on me and asked where I was from. To which I feebly replied……’blog’.  Oh well!!

Here’s the wonderful Holly from Diary Directory, who was kind enough to take control of my camera whilst I was in my bewildered state and get some pics of me and the lady herself. I then returned the favour…

So on to the perfume. It’s bursting with frangipani and violet, patchouli and musk. Quite frankly, it’s delish. It’s a not a girly, airy fairy frivolous scent. It is womanly and sexy and sophisticated. The woman that wears this is discerning and wise, yet vivacious and youthful. Oh dear…I’m being cheesy again! Someone stop me!!!!

Well I’ll leave it to Diane Von Furstenburg. Here she is describing ‘Diane’ the fragrance…

‘Diane’ is launches exclusively in Harrods and DVF boutiques from 16th October 2011. It will be available nationwide from early 2012.  Prices start at £47 for the Eau de Toilette and £64 for the Eau de Parfum.
