Perfume Mom wore in the late 70’s

I've been trying to identify a perfume my mom wore in the mid to late 80's early 90's

My best description of it was a strong rose and pineapple fragrance, very sharp.

 

i thought I'd turn to you beauty oficionados to help me out.  Thank you in advance!

@fitfuninformed  Was it made by Coty? What about Ombre' Rose? This was my fav back then.

A popular perfume in that timeframe was Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds.

My first Christmas ever being away from home in 1988 and I was stationed in Germany. I was gifted a bottle of White Diamonds and I loved it.
