Scenting Spring

With so many Estée Lauder products to choose from,
it’s hard to play favorites. But that won’t stop us from trying.
Here’s what we’re loving this month.

Estée Lauder Pleasures Aqua
Eau de Parfum Spray

Spring. It’s the season of rebirth and renewal—and the time when we stow away the cashmere and look to lighter, brighter things. That’s exactly why we’re so in love with the new limited edition Pleasures Aqua fragrance. First, there’s the color—a sheer blue that transports us from brisk Spring breezes right into the cool turquoise ocean we’ll be splashing in this Summer. Then there’s the scent itself: Floral, like the original Pleasures, but with a brisk, seaside vibe that keeps those vacation fantasies alive, even if we’re stuck in front of a computer. It’s an addictive mix of honeysuckle and green notes (for freshness), freesia (that gives it a juicy quality) and a cool, watery accord (there’s that ocean again). Lilac, jasmine and peony give it the signature Pleasures heart, and then it finishes off with just enough musk and woody notes for a sun-like warmth. Get ready to spritz and smile.
