 White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor gift set

This Valentine’s Day, don’t rely on flowers or chocolates – instead, shower love with the glamorous indulgence of White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor. Few women have inspired and embodied love more passionately than the legendary Elizabeth Taylor.  She dazzled the world, and the men who adored her gifted her with equally dazzling jewels. Miss Taylor’s incomparable collection included the 33 carat flawless Elizabeth Taylor stone and the celebrated Taj Mahal diamond – pieces she prized due to their remarkable craftsmanship and flawless rarity.  She wore her exquisite jewelry daily and believed that “a girl can always have more diamonds” – a perspective which led her to create the lush and feminine fragrance, White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor. 

For Valentine’s Day this iconic fragrance makes a truly special gift, with a gorgeous gift set designed to pamper her with the sumptuousness of diamonds from head to toe.  From the extravagant luxury of a perfumed bath to the final spritz of this sensational scent, White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor ensure her special day will be one she’ll treasure for years to come.   After all, she’s the star of your love affair and deserves something radiant, extraordinarily rare, overwhelmingly and dazzlingly beautiful – White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor.  Offered only during the Valentine’s Day season, the Gift Set includes a 1.7 fl. oz. Eau de Toilette Spray Naturel, a 3.3 fl. Oz. Perfumed Body Lotion, a 3.3 fl. oz. Luxury Bath Bubbles, a 1 fl. oz. Satin Body Talc, and an elegant gold and bejeweled evening bag.  It’s a set as special as the woman whose name it carries.
