An Inside Look At Holiday Gifting Traditions

Nov 25, 2013, 17:07 ET from House of Taylor

NEW YORK, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The holiday season was a special time for Elizabeth Taylor. Her casual, warm and welcoming California home was a beautiful holiday haven for an extended family of regulars that included her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Her loved ones were her greatest joy, but she also knew a thing or two about the art of gift giving. Her go-to choices featured soft cashmere sweaters and blankets or anything with a touch of sparkle. Diamonds were her favorite, including her signature scent White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor. And, though she often gave items of exceptional luxury, Miss Taylor believed these special gifts should be used and enjoyed every day – a rule she was happy to follow. In fact, not a day went by that she couldn't be found wearing her 33 carat Krupp Diamond.


Diamonds of the utmost purity in clarity and color -- white diamonds – are the rarest and most precious of gems, and Elizabeth Taylor's homage to them evokes the glamour, sophistication and emotion they inspire. As magically alluring as the legendary star herself, White Diamonds allows every woman who wears it to be transported by its pure, timeless beauty.  The White Diamonds fragrance is a rich sensual floral fragrance with notes including Narcisse, Jasmine, Amber and Sandalwood and the collection reflects the deep feminine warmth and classic enduring beauty of the woman who created it. 

As fragrance continues to be a holiday choice for many, White Diamonds is available for the holidays in a beautiful gift set at Macy's and other fine department stores. It includes a 3.3 fl. oz. Eau de Toilette Spray Naturel, 3.3 oz. Perfumed Body Cream, 3.3 oz. Gentle Moisturizing Body Wash, and .5 oz. Eau de Parfum Spray Naturel.

The White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor gift set retails for $60 ($120 value) and is available at Macy's, and fine department stores.  As part of Elizabeth Taylor's passionate commitment and fearless leadership in the fight against HIV/AIDS, she directed that 25% of her royalties from White Diamonds and her other House of Taylor fragrances go to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
