Celebrating the 35th Anniversary Of Beautiful: Estée Lauder Beautiful Absolu

Created in 1985 by Chant, Grojsman, Benaim, and Gavarry, Estée Lauder’s Beautiful Eau de Parfum was a big floral. That adjective should maybe be in all caps to accurately describe it. What fascinated me was within all that power there were distinctly recognizable strands. For my late sister it was her daily perfume. It was the fragrance of a thousand flowers, feminine and romantic. I still think of it as one of the great examples of this type of perfumery.

Beautiful Absolu is a new limited edition concentration born from the desire to celebrate Beautiful’s unprecedented floralcy.

Andy loved Beautiful so much he even wore it himself. A visionary, like Estée, Andy also had a passion for flowers, capturing their beauty in bold pop art prints and paintings splashed with color. Now, Estée and Andy’s flowers come together in the ultimate collaboration: a special 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of Beautiful. This Special Collector’s Edition is an exclusive collaboration between Estée Lauder and the art of Andy Warhol.

Adorn yourself with the sumptuous scents within Estée Lauder’s Beautiful Absolu fragrance, created by perfumer Mackenzie Reilly Brimming with fruity, botanical notes, the Eau de Parfum is guaranteed to allow you to make a memorable entrance wherever you go.

Top Notes: Rose, Orange, Lily, Tuberose, Marigold.
Heart Notes: Orange Flower, Muguet, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang.
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Vetiver, Amber.

Romantic and charming, the perfume opens with top notes of delicate Rose, juicy Orange, powdery Lily, Tuberose and Marigold, conjuring visions of colourful gardens bursting into life. Hopeful buds evoke feelings of adventure and promise, reminding you to take chances and to never be afraid of chasing your dreams.

The fragrance takes an unpredictable turn with heart notes of alluring Orange Flower, Muguet, opulent Jasmine and Ylang-Ylang, the enticing cocktail lingering on the skin and in the air. Passionate and unique, allow the perfume to sweep you away on a wave of charisma and lust, working as a constant reminder to express yourself in an honest and authentic manner.

Finishing with notes of creamy Sandalwood, Vetiver and Amber, the perfume reaches a bold crescendo, exuding confidence and a molten, simmering sense of self. Ideal for the person that knows exactly who they are, as the unignorable and unapologetic aromas mingle and dance. Encased in a smouldering, curvaceous bottle with a gold-toned lid.

This special 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of Estée Lauder’s Beautiful will be available this fall as a new limited-edition concentration born from the desire to celebrate Beautiful’s unprecedented floralcy.

Estée Lauder Beautiful Absolu is available in a flacon of 50ml and is available at Estée Lauder corners and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Estée Lauder.

Bvlgari Wild Pop Monete Watch


We recently talked about the exclusive presentation of the new Wild Pop collection, the new Must Have by Bvlgari inspired by the essence of the eighties. Now it’s time to tell of jewels, authentic masterpieces of craftsmanship that combines color, passion and tradition.

The bold approach of the Roman Maison has always characterized that desire to break the rules but always with exceptionality and style. ´Most of all and all at once´ is the motto to which these creations are inspired that represent the tribute to those years where excess and extravagance were the basis of everything. Not only that, Wild Pop also wants to be a testimony to Bvlgari’s special bond with Pop Art’s father.


When one day Andy Warhol told Nicola Bvlgari: “I believe that your jewels are the ’80s”, the jeweler replied that they were not, because “We are always looking for the impossible”! A research that has produced beloved masterpieces all over the world, sometimes personalized and unique for the star system, especially the one that in New York represented the center of the world.

I wanted to create something about this fantastic dialogue between Bvlgari and Andy Warhol.

Lucia Silvestri, Bvlgari creative director

The Wild Pop collection is based on an intuition by Lucia Silvestri, the creative director of Bvlgari who, visiting the Andy Warhol Foundation, was able to see through the catalogs and the correspondence of the artist, how close the link with the Maison was. “I wanted to create something about this fantastic dialogue between Bvlgari and Andy Warhol and so in 2018 the precious artefacts are born where glamor is the protagonist. Unique and sparkling gems with unexpected combinations interpret the excitement and audacity of that liason”.




For a ´wild pop´ idea of the time, Bvlgari created a necklace-watch. The ´Monete´ is a pendant with a watch inside, with a 52mm case in 18kt pink gold with diamonds and an authentic antique acient silver coin, a Tetradrachm of Kyme in Aeolis, 2nd century BC, to be exact. The malachite dial recalls the theme that returns in the chain (length 90 cm), also in pink gold with malachite, diamonds and emeralds inserts.

Like all the precious creations of the Maison, the craftsmanship and the wisdom represent ineliminable connotations in the production of every jewel that is born through the skill and precision of an ancient goldsmith’s art that is renewed without losing its aura of exceptionality.



Bond No.9 Andy Warhol


Bond No.9 launches a new unisex fragrance Andy Warhol that ideally captures the ‘boho-mod life and times of the iconic artist himself’. Bond No.9 Andy Warhol is the sixth fragrance launched in the Warhol Perfume Collection. This new fragrance is less intense yet enough to be memorable.

….the time was right for an eau de parfum that’s an ode to Warhol himself, with an image of the artist on the bottle.

Bond No.9 Andy Warhol is composed of Italian bergamot zest and peach juice along with red rose, peach juice, and spicy cumin…centifolia rose, white patchouli and cistus amber. The base notes include jasmine, lemony-spicy frankincense, oud, amber, sandalwood and musk.
