Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean was inspired by Catherine Zeta-Jones and her love of and fondness for the Mediterranean Sea. It was created by perfume artisan Claude Dir, who successfully captured the essence of Capri and Sardinia, where blue skies and warm sea breezes meld with the smell of mountains and warm sand.
The fragrance features floral and wood notes such as peach nectar, sorbet, wisteria, sandalwood, mandarin plum, star magnolia, orchid, musk and amber. The feminine, oval bottle is made from cerulean blue heavy glass, ostensibly to match the color of the sea. The cap is hammered silver—a gorgeous compliment to the icy blue fluid.
The Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean collection consists of a 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray for $47.50, a 3.3 oz Eau de Parfum Spray for $57.50, 6.8 oz Body Lotion for $29.50 and a .63 oz Body Shimmer Powder for $35. It's available now, and is much more affordable than a plane ticket and seaside vacation!
