Flowers forward ~ full throttle! Beautiful is an intense melange of classic floral notes, artfully arranged by Sophia Grojsman. (It's a good thing Lauder enlisted her expertise, if this were attempted by anyone other than; the results could have proven disasterous!) Ironically, what makes this formula a success is also what turns potential wearers away. It is a BLEND. Solitary notes and distinct evolution are not part of Beautiful's personality. It is a budding garden delight. A floral rush, powerful & heady. Beautiful dares your nose to name each note, which is nearly impossible to achieve. This of course may lead to the problem of over-application. Remember: More is not always better! Beautiful is only cloying when over applied...so quit trying to smell each individual flower in this mix and appreciate the complete intricate bouquet. It IS beautiful!
