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.

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."
