I’ve said it before – it’s amazing how perfume takes you back to a specific time, place, season or moment in your life. It has the ability to transport you within a moment. I have several scents that remind me of some of my most special days – my engagement day, wedding day, my 21st – to name a few! The Elizabeth Arden White Tea is no different. It always brings me back to summer memories. It’s one of my favorite summer scents and always reminds me of warm, happy days.
“An exquisite fragrance that captures the simplicity and purity of white tea.”
Inspiration behind the range
The Elizabeth Arden White Tea range was first launched in 2017. The Elizabeth Arden White Tea range was inspired by the simple pleasure that accompanies the first sip of tea. The fragrance is described as exquisitely uncomplicated. Think sophistication. Think serenity. For me, I can totally pick up the inspiration in the scent. It is beautiful, yet not overbearing. I especially love how it suits women of all ages and can be worn on a simple summers day as well as a fancy night out.
Reese Witherspoon is the face of Elizabeth Arden and consequently, the White Tea range. It’s perfectly fitting as I think no one embodies sophistication, feminism and beauty quite like she does!
Now, in addition to the fabulous original, we have two new delightful scents. These are the Elizabeth Arden White Tea Wild Rose, as well as White Tea Vanilla Orchid.
Elizabeth Arden White Tea Original
The original is simply stunning – it’s uncomplicated, pure and really suits all occasions. For me, it works just as well during the day as it would during the evening. It is feminine, sophisticated and soft!
The Original has top notes of Italian Mandarin and Sea Breeze, middle notes of White Tea and white iris and base notes of tonka bean and tranquility musks.
Elizabeth Arden White Tea Vanilla Orchid
For me, the White Tea Vanilla Orchid is my favorite. It has depth to it but still has the trademark white tea lightness. Vanilla scents can be tricky as sometimes they are overly sweet and overbearing. However the Vanilla Orchid strikes the perfect balance with the top notes of Lemon Primofiore and Bergamot Essence. It is described as an ‘opulent and alluring floral scent’
White Tea Orchid has top notes of Lemon Primofiore and Bergamot Essence, middle notes of White Tea, Jasmin and Vanilla Orchid and base notes of vanilla essence, amberwood and musk.
And finally, the White Tea Wild Rose
White Tea Wild Rose has a sweetness to it from the rose, but is still fresh thanks to notes such as fresh pear blossom. It is said to ‘capture the soft surprise of wild rose at the edge of the ocean.’ A rising sweetness layered on a fresh breeze.
For me personally it is the more sensual of the trio and makes for a lovely date night or evening scent.
The White Tea Wild Rose has top notes of white tea, pear tree blossom and red currant, middle notes of Bulgarian Rose, Turkish Rose and Blush Peony and base notes of Tonka Bean and musks.
Some important perfume application tips!
When it comes to perfume, something that is really important is making sure that you apply it correctly!
Most people (me included!) apply perfume primarily onto their wrists and neck. However, these areas are not the only spots that are good for holding onto a scent for longer! Other heat-retaining areas, such as behind your ears, on the insides of your elbows or even behind your knees are therefore also great to remember when applying perfume that you want to last you for the whole day. In addition to these, your hair will also hold onto the scent quite well!
