If Art Nouveau could be represented by a single scent,it would be Diorella,imo.i love chypre's.Diorella is no exception. Diorella is like a quirky pampered girl among the class of citrus chypre cologne (70's), standing aside alone, watching two popular classmates O de Lancome and Eau de Rochas dancing and laughing aloud in the party.a sophisticated white scarf on a spring day of a classy lady type of smell. Diorella's bouquet is skilfully blended by Roudnitska with texture, balance and form all taken into consideration to capture a realistic still life.Roudnitska is unique,he can do "magic" masterfully mixing citrus notes with fruity notes. preceded by female masterpiece as this one, Diorama or would parfum de Therese.Diorella is well known perfume among royal ladies.very natural and wonderfully earthy.

It is a minimalist perfume and it suggests the summery of a crystalline structure.on other hand, there is a deep sophistication of a silky kind that adds some warmth probably due to it's woody and aromatic segment.the first spritz brings out extremely astringent, bitter accords, citruses and then calms to a green scent.crisp jasmine and honeysuckle are tucked away patiently awaiting a light breeze to carry their glorious scent along with the citrus and peach, while the dry down brings out the oakmoss and grassy notes,and deepened with some crispy fresh vetiver, just enough to keep it from veering into the masculine territory,the austere character remains.it does bring something sparkling to mind,like a gin and tonic which is also bitter.it is definitely an original,as it is so far removed from the floral-fruity types selling today.like walking in from a hot summer afternoon into cool marble flooring and being sprayed with large, dewy rain,so clear.it is Diorella.

Fresh and lightly floral, citrus disappears too quickly for my liking, as the citrus is what is most appealing in Diorella.

Classically lovely, the jasmine in this stands out more on me than anything else. I find it quite strong so I can only wear a light wisp of it.

Not much else positive to add that hasn't already been stated. A buddy sent me a sample of some vintage juice. I got a nice blast of bright green and slightly sweet notes on top. The middle is rich with flowers and a touch of vetiver. I could really detect carnation. The base is mild with more rose than anything else. It is definitely "70's" in its style.

Vintage Diorella EDT 1970's.
Opens with an Adelhydic Citrus, Basil and mild Galbanum, Bergamot twist. Here it is reminiscent of the assault of Jubilation 25. A light Peachiness softens.

The Floral Bouquet in the Heart is so well blended and natural that I only recognize what is a slight Indol of Jasmine, which combines later with the Clove and musk to suggest a mild skank. The watery sweetness of the Cyclamen lightens and brightens. A buttery canvas of Oakmoss billows, dimensionalizes and softens all.
A fine base of Sandalwood, Patchouli and Vetiver strike a light accord as base. Vanilla? Perhaps it is tucked in there, however the whole thing speaks a Masterpiece of Elegant Symphonic Art.
To speak of gender is just rude.
