Diana Vreeland’s Dressing Table (1975)

Vogue just announced that a collection of fragrances inspired by the legendary Diana Vreeland will be launched in Paris this fall; for  more information, see here.

In honor of this news, I’m posting this photograph of Vreeland’s dressing table in her New York apartment. It was photographed for a feature in Architectural Digest’s September/October 1975 issue. I can’t identify any of the perfume bottles in this photo; if you have sharper eyes than I do, please leave a comment with your observations!

You can read one of my earlier posts about Vreeland and perfume here. The more I learn about her, the more I realize how much she loved fragrance.

  1. I can see one bottle of Chanel, the tall bottle with the black cap to the right. I wonder if she had her fragrances specially blended, and put in her own beautiful perfume bottles. I found your website thru a link on Now Smell this. Pardon me, while I browse the archives!
