Do you know about Aerin Lauder’s beauty line? We talk about it regularly on the blog, because we adore it (especially the tanning lotion — it’s great)(and the amazing accessories). So I was especially excited when I got to go visit her at her house in the Hamptons, thanks to my collaboration with Estée Lauder.
The occasion for the visit was the launch of Aerin’s new perfume, Rose de Grasse.
We went to see her at her house, we got to visit her incredible rose garden, and honestly, I left feeling super inspired.
I recognized their relaxed, American-style hospitality right away. The house could be intimidating — after all, it’s a little piece of American history (it belonged to Estée, Aerin’s grandmother) but you feel right at home as soon as you walk in.
We talked a lot about roses, of course. Rose is a very delicate scent and it’s difficult to capture in a fragrance. I can’t imagine how many hours went in to trying to find the perfect note. Aerin’s rose scent is close to perfection, both light and intense at the same time.
