Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise review

Fragrance Review: Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise

While this light and sweet, floral scent from Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise has been around since 2003, I've just discovered it. What struck me was the gorgeous gradated rainbow-colored raindrop-shaped bottle. And after I smelled it, I knew it would make a beautiful addition to my vanity with its mirrored ring on top of the wide neck.

The fragrance itself is more potent than anything I am used to from this brand, and it has a mysterious lingering after-scent that I can't seem to put my finger on. I'm guessing this may have something to do with a few ingredients I've never heard of such as eden's mist, jabuticaba fruit, mahonia japonica and golden melaleuca bark.

However, the ones I do recognize are blue hyacinth, orange flower, pink honeysuckle, laelia orchid, jasmine, zebrano wood and plum blossom. It's definitely the orchid that draws me in and the combination of seductive jasmine and sweet orange leaves me feeling invigorated and comforted. So although this doesn't rank as my favorite Estee Lauder fragrance (that spot is reserved for Private Collection, I like it enough to keep in the mix for the summer or as a tropical holiday option.

Beyond Paradise is available in three eau de parfum sizes ($39.50 - $68) in a 6.7 oz body lotion ($39.50) and a 6.7oz body wash ($30). Are you interested in giving it a whirl?

I really like the bottle - I like rainbow things :-D - but I recall smelling it once and not being terribly impressed. I like Pleasures Delight a lot more... but I might have to give this another chance?

I've never heard of it... I do really think the bottle is cute though :) Obviously I'd have to smell it first.

I used to wear this all time...until my grandma loved it so much on me, she started wearing it too! Now I can't wear it because instead of making me feel sexy--I feel like I'm a grandma!

This my favourite Estee Lauder perfume, I use it all the time! The truth is I just bought it for the bottle and when I smelled the perfume at home I was hooked.

I always thought this perfume was "too old" for me. I had a roommate who wore this every day and our place always smelled like it. After she moved away, I had to get a bottle to spray on myself and in my apartment at the time, lol.

This is my "fancy perfume". I love it so much I don't want to use it every day because I want it to last, lol. The bottle is definately eye catching, and the scent is nose catching. My husband loves this fragarence on me.
