unnecessary celebuscent
Diane von Fuerstenberg enjoyed considerable celebrity in the 1970s, the decade in which she released her iconic jersey wrap dress. She had the additional distinction of being a princess (by marriage) and had many significant business ventures. (Her Wikipedia article reports that her fashion company had $150M (US) in 1979 sales.) In terms of business savvy, one could think of her as an heir to Chanel (though with a much happier life) or a forerunner of Britney Spears (though with a much happier life). I'd associate her with a sophisticated, competent, and complex scent - something along the lines of Donna Trussardi.

Perhaps this is why Love Diane has been such a failure. It's a pleasant warm gourmand with a pronounced "white musk" note in the same category as Givenchy Absolutely Irresistible or Britney Spears Hidden Fantasy. While other perfumes have used the astringent possibilities of apricot and redcurrant to add interest and contrast, here they are simply sources of indistinct sweetness. It's a combination of sweet, kind-of-sweet, and really sweet.

Anyone old enough to remember Ms. Von Fuerstenberg as a celebrity is too old for this sort of generic sweet mishmash. Anyone who's not would have no particular reason to seek out this scent in the tidal wave of similar perfumes that litter the counters of Sephora, low-price department store Kohl's, and discounters like TJ Maxx. (Her fashion website sells none of her perfumes.)

This is one of those "what were they thinking?" perfumes - it doesn't express anything original and von Fuerstenberg doesn't need the money. You can find 100 ml of it on US eBay for as little as $13, shipping included.
