Beauty -

AERIN, a lifestyle and beauty brand founded by Estee Lauder’s granddaughter Aerin Lauder has just launched its beautiful fragrance collection in Hong Kong officially (and quietly). As a nosy and curious person I am, I went to the Estee Lauder store at IFC shopping as soon as I heard the news.

First of all, look at those beautiful bottles with gemstone caps (heart-eyed emoji!). It’s also the first time that Aerin fragrance collection appears in Hong Kong and it’s exclusively available in Estee Lauder store, IFC shopping mall.

The Aerin Fragrance Corner displays the whole collection, glass domes lined up in front of each scent and there’s a stone sculpture of the scent’s key ingredient such as Gardenia and Iris in each of them, which reminds me of the enchanted rose in Beauty and the Beast. The best part is the gemstone caps on top of the glass domes which you can lift and smell scent so effortlessly and mess-free.
