    Default New: Emerald Dream by Estée Lauder.

    Estée Lauder is launching its first specialy created for duty free fragrance: Emerald Dream. There were travel exclusives in the past: like Pleasures Exotic and Pleasures Intense for Men, but this time it's not a flanker.



    I saw this ad on www.moodiereport.com ... the ad links me to Estée Lauder's US website which I can't access from my PC at home (same with MAC cosmetics). Maybe if you go there, there will be more info about the notes.

    I like the imagery and I think it sounds yummy! Apricot, basil, "beach skin accord"....I hope it is not a CB The Beach 1968 copy on the "beach skin"...here we have an example of trickle-up fashion. Anyway, I dig the imagery and I want to try it. My next trip that I know of is March...I will certainly look out for it in the duty frees.

    Does anyone remember a frag made by (I think) Dior called "Traveller" or "Voyage" or something? I saw this one in a duty free about 3 years ago, LOVED IT, didn't buy it, and have never been able to find out anything about it again. I don't remember the name for certain or the house, but the name of the frag definitely had to do with travel. The juice was clear, I think, or the lightest shade of yellow/tawny. I can not recall the notes, just that I liked it. It was sexy yet light, fun but not frivolous. A perfect encapsulation of a modern woman who is confident, financially secure, sexually secure, fashionable, and well-travelled.

    it may have been "specially" created for Travel Retail, but that's the old prescriptives flirt bottle. not that anyone remembers that one

    Now that you say it, I do remember that Flirt bottle (the cap had an off-centered silver ball).

    Mooodiereport.com added info about the notes today:
    The juice contains top citrus notes of tangerine blended with fresh ripe apricot, as well as honeysuckle and blue basil.

    At the heart lie notes of tropical flowers, including Mediterranean mimosa, violet and blue Florentine iris. Luxurious Emerald Orchid blends with juicy plum, marigold and cyclamen, to bring vibrant colour and depth.

    The tropical base notes feature a Beach Skin Accord for balmy sensuality, as well as blue cypress wood, fragrant sandalwood and Hawaiian Kamani wood.

    Sorry for bringing up a year-old thread, but Estée Lauder's Emerald Dream has broken out of travel retail exclusivity and is now at a US retailer.

    But it's not the retailer that you would expect, even for Estée Lauder... Ulta (a cosmetics/fragrance/salon chain with stores in 30 US states) is now carrying Emerald Dream in stores and on their website as an Ulta exclusive in the USA, priced at $45 for a 1.7 oz EdP.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    Thanks for the news Zach.

    I thought ED smelled strikinly similar to Beautiful (also by Lauder) - but unfortunately, the three or four times I wore it, it gave me a stomach ache, nausea. The only fragrance that this has ever happened to me with.
