She personified fashion and glamour in the post-war 1940s. An original member of the "jet-set", she lived in the places we only dream of visiting today, had friends whose names you'd instantly recognize. She dined with Howard Hughes and danced to Gershwin in dazzling couture gowns. From her apartment at the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris to her thatched roof, open-air pavilion in Bali and ultimately to an island named for her off Jamaica, she lived life to its fullest, embracing the world, and imparting her fabulous taste and joie de vivre to her young daughter, my dearest friend.
This fragrance is named for a woman of elegance and generosity of spirit who is remembered as much for her sultry beauty as for her kindness.
Gilda combines exotic Calabrian Bergamot and Orange Blossoms from Seville with a delicate kiss of the once forbidden fruit, bright Grapefruit, to produce a tantalizing elixir of citrus top notes. The fragrance grows increasingly seductive in its Mediterranean Violet and Hyacinth heart. Warm, woody Papyrus Leaves evoke memories of sensuous sultry evenings on the Nile. Nostalgic notes of Vetiver Heart and Tonka Beans with nuances of aromatic Black Amber complete the memorable scent. Choose from the Eau de Parfum in a glamorous, vintage-style atomizer or the portable Purse Spray (sold separately). 3.4 fl. oz.
