|Estee Lauder Beautiful Eau de Parfum Spray|
The fragrance of a thousand flowers, a tender bouquet of lilies and roses, marigold and orange blossoms, all warmed with a rich, woody base and brightened with a touch of citrus. Romantic, tender, memorable.Fragrance type: Lush floral.
Fragrance Notes: Top notes of rose, mandarin, lily, tuberose, and marigold. Middle notes of orange flower, muguet, jasmine, and ylang-ylang. Base notes of sandalwood, vetiver, and amber.
I got Estee Lauder Beautiful Eau de Parfum Spray as part of an Estee Lauder fragrance set. Beautiful is, just as described, a heady mix of strong florals, and the first notes that hit my nose are definitely tuberose. It's a fragrance note I don't particularly like, so I amn't surprised that I pick it up first. As the fragrance settles in, the floral notes mix in with some dry powdery notes as well as woody base notes. This is a stronger perfume, but it never goes into the cloyingly sweet category. Lasting power is quite good even on my dry skin. Since this is such a strong floral, I find that the slightest bit of perfume is more than sufficient, and I generally keep this perfume for the winters. My personal dislike of the floral notes aside, I think Estee Lauder Beautiful is a fragrance for a mature woman. It isn't a dainty little candy-floss kind of perfume and definitely not something that would appeal to everyone. Definitely a perfume that has to be tried out the counter before buying.
