A scent can provide an escape and completely transport you to some place different.  Being a full-time mom and small business owner, it’s the little things that help get me through a particularly stressful and chaotic day.  Sometimes just taking an evening stroll or watching the sunset can evoke the feeling of peacefulness and restore a sense of calm.

I love that Aerin Lauder had the same goal in mind when she created two new fragrances – Iris Meadow and Waterlily Sun.  Playful, modern, and stylish, each scent in the collection provides an escape to experience something different.

Aerin’s scents embody today’s modern busy life and the desire to dream and escape — even just for a moment. The fragrance blends the enticing senses one would experience in their element, wherever that may be.

“With such a busy schedule, it’s important for me to take time for myself.  To escape, I love to go for a walk ­ even if only for a few minutes. In the city, I love Central Park for the scenery, or if I’m in the Hamptons, along the beach or on a country road with wild flowers. Nothing is more peaceful and invigorating than a walk in the fresh air. I never listen to music, I like to just think and be inspired by my surroundings.” ­

– Aerin Lauder, Founder & Creative Director, AERIN


“Iris Meadow is a place to dream – wide open fields, brilliant blue skies and an endless landscape of wildflowers.”

 “Inspired by the waterlilies of the gardens of Giverny, Waterlily Sun reflects the tranquility of a peaceful place – quiet, warm with sunshine, and filled with beautiful greens.”

 – Aerin Lauder, Founder and Creative Director, AERIN
