She was the one person everyone wished to talk about during WWII. Scandalous, vilified, living in the rarified bubble of the Prince of Wales circle. She was the twice divorced woman who vamped her way into the Prince's heart. She was not beautiful but she had impeccable taste. Of course she was despised by the royal family, who would allow no divorce at all among them at the time but the Prince of Wales was so crazy for her that when it came to choosing the throne or the divorcee, he chose the latter abdicated and went into exile in Paris. Alas, it was said that the relationship cooled off and got bitchy after the marriage but the pretenses remained firmly in place. Mrs. Simpson remained a fashion icon and was the author of the famous saying,"You can never be too thin or too rich."
The perfume is a paean to modern tastes and classic style. A rich carpet of three sandalwoods (a golden, a smoky, and a woody) gang up on a sparkle of pink grapefruit, all this is ringed around with a dry and delightful amber to set it off. A pinch of Sicilian myrtle to give it a bit of life (and remind us that they did indeed get married in the end...as myrtle is a marital ingredient).
This is a supremely sexy fragrance, but done in a way that the lady in question is a genius. Fruity, citrus, resinous, woody. Amazing.
