The new Estée Lauder fragrance Youth Dew Amber Nude will include notes of tea, grapefruit; black rose, carnation, jasmine, ylang-ylang; patchouli, amber, vetiver, chocolate, vanilla. “The golden color palette of the photo was not only a reference to the amber in the name, but also the ingredients. Ford noted that Youth Dew incorporates the gourmand strain of perfumery with its vanilla notes. Amber Nude instead contains chocolate, and Ford said his aim was to make Murphy look ‘like a beautiful piece of candy. I wanted to make her look so delicious that you’d want to bite into her.’ ” Youth Dew Amber Nude will be a part of the permanent collection alongside the original Youth Dew. The fragrance will be available in November of 2005. Meanwhile, feast your eyes on Carolyn Murphy who is one of Estée Lauder’s faces (wwd.com).
