The best Summer Fragrances part 24651 – Aerin Gardenia Rattan

Back at the end of July I was invited to a breakfast with Aerin Lauder. The PR very foolishly bravely kindly sat me next to her – and she was a delight. Completely normal, not stuffy and we discussed amongst other things, the joys of raising boys. Best we leave that conversation there.

The breakfast was to showcase the upcoming launch of both her new fragrances and the *wait for it* body creams to match. My favourite, Gardenia Rattan – I’m nothing if not predictable – now has an accompanying body cream and it is insane. Insane.

A body cream is always a more affordable way of enjoying fragrance if you are watching the pennies. They are nearly always much, much cheaper. This is £40.00 for a whopping 150ml. And if you only ever use it on your upper limbs and decollete as I do it will last you years. 

There are also two new fragrances joining the stable at the same time as the body creams.

Waterlily Sun and Iris Meadow bring the total collection to 7 and launch at the beginning of October in Aerin stockists nationwide.
