New York City has long captured our imaginations and hearts as the city that never sleeps. The subject of movies, songs and dreams the city has inspired generations of travellers to pack up and experience everything the city has to offer including us. But if you’re day job has you sitting at desk daydreaming, Elizabeth Arden had created a new way to experience that New York City magic without leaving home although it’s not as much fun.
The release of the limited edition 5th Avenue NYC fragrance (RRP$35), celebrates Elizabeth Arden’s illustrious heritage. Created to capture the essence of the savvy, sophisticated New York woman the fragrance combines the pulse of the city’s undeniable nightlife with the lush luxury of the city’s heart and soul.
The fragrance opens with sweet feminine notes – bergamot, sweet peach and of course, golden delicious apple – a nod to the city’s famed icon. This then blends into sultry notes of jasmine, plum blossom and sweet black currant, before melding into the smokier and sophisticated base, with notes of vanilla bean, musk and smoky sandalwood.
The fragrance is perfectly sophisticated – a perfume that would transition well from day to night. It is quite sweet initially, and the fresh apple does brighten the perfume considerably, but the sandalwood and amber notes help to balance out the fragrance, making it perfectly subtle and wearable.
Available now for a limited time at Elizabeth Arden counters in Myer, David Jones, and selected pharmacies nationally, for your nearest stockist you can call 1800 015 500.
