Legendary movie star and entrepreneur Elizabeth Taylor hits the road in September to push her latest perfume for women, White Diamonds. She'll be on an eight-city tour, stopping at Hecht's at Tyson's Corner on Sept. 13.
During her stop, Taylor will hold a "Question and Answer" session with customers. The first 150 customers to buy the 1-ounce limited edition bottle, which sells for $300, will be invited to a private tea with the star. Each of the limited edition bottles is numbered and decorated with Taylor's signature. For details, call (800) 852-2433.
The perfume, marketed by Elizabeth Arden and Parfum International Ltd., is packaged in a pear-shaped container made of heavy glass, crowned with a rhinestone bow. A regular 1-ounce bottle retails for $200. On the cheaper end, a 1.7-ounce eau de toilette spray sells for $35.
White Diamonds is one of the new fragrances to hit the market this fall. Others include Calvin Klein's Escape and Chanel's Egoiste, a scent for men.
