Diaghilev was designed by Roja Dove, who noted that “Diaghilev loved scent so much that when he traveled, the drapes always had to be scented”. The notes for the floriental perfume include bergamot, rose de mai, oakmoss and vetiver.
Diaghilev will be available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum, £75, and 1000 bottles will be produced. It will be sold at the Victoria & Albert and at the Roja Dove Haute Parfumerie at Harrods starting in September.
* The exhibit Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes 1909-1929 will open on 25 September.
