Elizabeth Taylor Unveils Her ‘Violet Eyes’. Film and fashion icon Elizabeth Taylor has added a new fragrance to her collection; Violet Eyes. Taylor, who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000, re-teamed with perfumer Carlos Benaim to develop the new fragrance. ”I love floral fragrances, and wanted Violet Eyes to make women feel beautiful, sophisticated, and sensual,” Dame Taylor explained. “It was a great joy to create Violet Eyes with a bouquet of fragrance notes that I adore, carefully fine-tuning every aspect of it. Everything, down to the last detail, comes from my heart and my soul. I send this fragrance into the world with love.” Benaim worked with Taylor to create the famous perfume White Diamonds in 1991. “At first, you perceive the brightness of her gaze. Then she looks straight at you, and there you are, staring at the most famous eyes in the world. And they are indeed violet, absolutely unique and truly beautiful.” Benaim said. “Having met Elizabeth Taylor and using her violet eyes as the inspiration, I chose flowers and materials that would evoke the color violet, its texture, sophistication and elegance, but also the brightness and sparkle that I recall in her eyes.” Violet Eyes is now available for a suggested retail price of $52.
