Prepping for summer’s first long weekend? Yes, we understand. It’s been a long time coming. We too are daydreaming; no wonder the mention of turquoise waters and warm sun-drenched tropical air at the recent launch of Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Collection continues to preoccupy us.
Yes, it was partly the beach-sunset inspired makeup palettes, the sunny pink and coral RollerGlosses and the jumbo-sized bronzers that first captured our makeup-loving attention. But then it was the Eau Fraiche that grabbed our olfactory imagination and wouldn’t let go.
This limited edition scent bares a heart of smooth sultry amber; its other ingredients sound and smell like the fixings of the ultimate holiday cocktail: coconut milk, sandalwood, vanilla, vetiver, myrrh, mandarin, bergamot, lemon and pulpy orange, tiara flower, jasmine magnolia, orange blossoms and lavender.
So sexy. Ditto the moisturizing Bronze Goddess Body Oil which also comes laced with this summer-suited fragrance.
This, most definitely, is the way to the beach.
