Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 10!

I was recently sent a sample of this new Private Collection perfume by Estee Lauder. I’ve tried it a couple times, and without fail – every time I wear it – I get stopped at least once and asked what I’m wearing. It really makes an impression on those who smell it.  This product would make any woman happy this Christmas!

“Great fragrances create a world of their own.” –Aerin Lauder

In creating Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang, the second fragrance in her Private Collection, Aerin Lauder drew inspiration from the luxurious simplicity of her own private world. The fragrance captures the essence of an enjoyable evening in a warm, inviting room filled with the luxurious textures of wood, velvet and cashmere in browns and golds.

“To me, a perfect evening is a private one, spend at home with family and friends,” said Aerin Luader, Estee Lauder Senior Vice Presient and Creative Director. “Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang represents the relaxed intimacy and quiet comforts that we love to come home to at the end of the day.”

Rick with texture and surrounded by warmth, Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang subtly evokes the legendary fragrances of the past yet invites you into an intimate, private world of today. From deep within this very modern, warm, luminous fragrance emerges a carefully crafted bouquet of Golden Amber, Ylang Ylang, Bulgarian Rose, Honey, Incense, Vanilla, and Sandalwood.

The richness of Amber and Ylang Ylang combined with the luxurious depth of Sandalwood and Vanilla.

The second fragrance in Aerin Lauder’s Private Collection. Warm and inviting. Luminous and intimate.

The Parfum Spray is the jewel in the collection…the purest expression of the Amber Ylang Ylang experience.

The sleek bottle features a cap embedded with natural semi-precious gems. Tiger eye, smokey quartz and red agate stones have a glowing, fire-like brilliance. The shapes of the stones on each cap are different, making each one unique.

Erin’s Christmas Countdown- #10

2008-must-haves.jpg

When the weather turns cold and rainy I love to take a long hot bubble bath to relax. I love to have a candle burning and maybe a

glass of wine to complete the experience. The new Harry Slatkin candles from Bath & Body Works smell amazing, and help set the mood for ultimate relaxation. My favorite new scents are Frosted Cranberry and Tree scent from the Holiday line.

This is the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree in a little candle. Due to allergies we are a fake tree and house Harry Slatkin’s Tree scent  has the perfect scent of a real fresh cut tree without all the sniffles.
