Considered by many to be the most famous diamond in the world, The Hope is also one of the world’s largest diamonds.
Described as the size of a pigeon’s egg, the Hope Diamond is a distinctive grey blue in hue, and also emanates a rare red phosphorescent glow. The gem has been worn by sultans, queens, aristocracy and socialites; most notably Queen Marie Antoinette who wore it as a hairpin, and its last private owner, the flamboyant heiress Evalyn Walsh McLean. It was the inspiration for the ‘Heart of the Ocean’ in the film Titanic and provides the inspiration for this iridescent fragrance.
Opening with the warm radiance of cinnamon bark, myrrh and cloves conjure the diamond’s legendary fiery red glow. A woody shimmer of cedar and oud wood is at the heart, layered with the multi-faceted, honeyed brilliance of the immortelle flower. A base of black amber, labdanum resin (from the Mediterranean rock rose), musk and vetiver, exude pure glamour and sophistication. Decadent.
