“Fragrances fill the senses with the mysterious.” - Diana Vreeland, who was she?

Posted by Derrick Winston on

While working on our next post, I remembered a great quote about fragrances by Diana Vreeland which I wanted to share today;

“Fragrances fill the senses with the mysterious.”

Such a lovely quote! As it related so closely to an upcoming article about Attar Al Ghutra.

Diana Vreeland was a noted columnist and editor in the field of fashion. She worked for the fashion magazines Harper's Bazaar and Vogue, being the editor-in-chief of the latter, and as a special consultant at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1964.

Born: September 29, 1903, Paris, France
Died: August 22, 1989, Upper East Side, New York City, NY
Title: Editor-in-chief of Vogue

Some of her other Quotes:

"The only real elegance is in the mind; if you've got that, the rest really comes from it."

"I loathe narcissism, but I approve of vanity."

"Poor, darling fellow - he died of food. He was killed by the dinner table."
