Confidence, femininity, quiet strength and timeless grace… Every woman defines ‘sensuous’ in a different way. The advertising campaign conveys this idea, featuring four Estée Lauder spokesmodels : Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Hurley, Hilary Rhoda and Carolyn Murphy. ‘Each model represents a different side of sensuality,’ says Aerin Lauder. ‘Hilary conveys youth while Carolyn’s classic look communicates elegance. As an actress, Gwyneth brings an emotional range to sensuality and Elizabeth portrays confidence and wisdom.’ To capture the essence of sensuality, Estée Lauder wanted to re-invent the idea of feminine woods, creating a fragrance category called Woody Amber. The result is fluid, warm, inviting and distinctly feminine.
Sensuous is based on a ‘Warm Accord’ of molten woods (the scent uses a ‘melted woods NaturePrint’) and amber. The ‘Feminine Accord’ is a floral introduction that is composed around a fragrance concept called Atmospheric Florals. It blends ghost lily accord, magnolia, jasmine and ‘ylang Nature Intact’. The ‘Luminous Accord’ fuses creamy sandalwood, black pepper, juicy mandarin pulp and ‘honey NaturePrint’.
The bottle design features delicate fluting, an Estée Lauder signature that flows diagonally across the glass. The bottle is topped with a luminous rose-gold cap.
