Aerin Lauder has just launched a new ultra-feminine fragrance called Estee Lauder Tuberose Gardenia Private Collection. The scent bears the same name as the 1973 Private Collection fragrance which Estee had originally created for herself. Like her grandmother, Aerin initially created this scent for herself and her girlfriends. It became so popular within her social set that she decided to bring the scent to the masses.
Lucky for us, because its powerful and full-bodied mix of neroli, lilac, rosewood, tuberose, gardenia, orange flower, jasmine, white lily, carnation and vanilla bourbon is too good to be kept on the down-low. This perfume has serious lasting power, and the floral and woodsy blend is a perfect way to transition from summer to fall.
For more about the fragrance,
The exquisite packaging is thoughtful and even sentimental. Like all of Estee Lauder products, gold is the dominant color. This collection has been crafted from clear, heavy square glass bottles with gold caps. The eau de parfum sprays have hammered caps inspired by a necklace that was given to Aerin from her grandmother. The perfume spray and the solid perfume are encrusted with semi-precious gems (aventurine, yellow and green jade, citrine, lemon and mustard stones) which were inspired by a Josef Hoffmann brooch.
The fragrances are available online and at few select high-end stores. The prices are in line with a fancy fragrance: $300 for a one ounce parfum, $120 for a 2.5 oz eau de parfum, $65 for a one ounce eau de parfum, $175 for a solid perfume, and $75 for the body creme.
