What inspired perfumer Celine Barel was Diana Vreeland’s statement on the occasion of creating the fragrance Perfectly Marvelous: "If that's not passion, if there is no smoke, if there is no fire, you have not lived at all." The composition resulted in memorable blend of lacquered red sandalwood spiced with pimento, framed in a bouquet of white jasmine. Available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. Perfectly Marvelous was launched in 2014.

Perfume rating: 3.50 out of 5 with 18 votes.

Here's an update: as you might expect, the jasmine disappeared first over time (about 4 hours). The sandalwood faded next, leaving a very soft spicy oriental, much softer than, for example, Opium. At every stage, it was still lovely. The following day it was gone from my wrist, but when I picked up my watch, the most divine and subtle scent had been absorbed by the leather strap, including the jasmine, and a day later I could still smell it from time to time.

PS if I didn't know that this was a new range, I could easily have been convinced that it was a classic I just hadn't come across before, maybe even as old as Mitsouko. I am not saying that this is like Mitsouko, because it really isn't, but I find a lot of modern launches lack individuality whereas Perfectly Marvellous (not Simply Marvellous, as I said below - I'm not finding the names in this range helpful!) has its own character.

I smelled this before I checked it online to find out what I was supposed to be getting, and what came across first of all was the sandalwood swiftly followed by the jasmine. Jasmine and sandalwood isn't that rare a combination - Samsara comes to mind - but in this particular perfume the sandalwood has real depth and the effect is somehow much richer. At first sniff, I wasn't able to identify the pimiento, musk and spices that I now know are also in this fragrance, but they make their presence felt in this richness. This perfume smells rare, exclusive and expensive, and quite bewitching. It actually is expensive, but I am seriously tempted to splash out.

By the way, I smelled the other fragrances in this range before deciding that Simply Marvellous was the one I wanted to test on my skin, and having looked on the website I now know that sandalwood is an ingredient in several of them. It is interesting how the various perfumers who created this range have all started with the same inspiration (Diana Vreeland) and similar ingredients and yet have created perfumes that are all distinctively different from each other.

A very creamy, rounded, jasmine scent. The jasmine is enriched with a dense musk and sandalwood undertone. Very rich, expensive-smelling, and long-lasting, I would say. Not terribly unique but a commendable execution of luxury and quality that I'm sure many white-floral lovers would eat right up.

I'm wearing a sample from the Neiman Marcus cataloge, so not certain how accurate this is. However, I get a lot of Jasmine and a lot of musk. I'd say this is a great cozy, comfort scent.

I find this fragrance to smell much more of sandalwood and a bit of jasmine. It is intriguing, deep, chic, not for everybody. Unisex.
