Scents from Home

My perfume collection has never grown past two scents: Chlo√© Eau de Parfum and Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede. I’m a true loyalist when it comes to beauty, but over the summer I discovered a new holy grail perfume. The Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose and Gardenia Eau de Parfum is the most beautiful fragrance I’ve ever laid (nose?) on. When I’m away at school, I miss the smell of my favorite floral lei and this perfume perfectly captures my home. The fragrance itself is quite pricey but it lasts a long time and is perfect for any occasion. I worked at Macy’s this summer and every time a customer came to the Lauder counter looking for a perfume, I recommended Private Collection. After each woman smelled a whiff of it, she walked away with one or two bottles; it’s that good. If you’re in the market for a lei (or the bottled remnants of one), check out Tuberose Gardenia!
