Versace continues their crystal collection with the lovely Yellow Diamond

It started with Crystal Noir, released in 2004, and ¬†then the crystal collection continued in 2006 with the lighter Bright Crystal by the house of Versace. Now they are giving us Yellow Diamond, the “crystal that turns into a diamond”. This light and airy floral is destined to be popular in today’s fragrance landscape – with it’s crystal topper and baroque packaging.¬†

The fragrance opens with lemon, bergamot, neroli, and pear sorbet. Can you taste the sweetness yet? The heart of the fragrance opens up with neroli blossom, freesia, mimosa, and water lily, and the lingering base is composed of amber, precious musk, and guaiac wood. Honestly, if you looked up “sweet fruity floral”, there would be a picture of this fragrance.

It’s hard to articulate what this fragrance conjures up for me. I think of spring, of the orange trees I used to smell and see in California. It’s light and crystalline, certainly, but has a bit of depth that surprised me. I think it’s the musk, but it’s not a dirty fragrance at all – it’s very clean and almost pure.

The eau de toilette is available in a 1.7 ounce or a three ounce bottle, a lotion, and various different sets, and you can find it at Nordstrom.
