40 days and 40 Nights of Beauty Cult Classics
Day 14, Estee Lauder's Tom Ford Azuree Soliel Oil
This is a cult classic fragrance that quickly sold out and was revived the following year at Estee Lauder. Not only did the company realize they had a gem on their hands but they created a fragrance version of the oil. I managed to hoard bottles of both.
The price point was so reasonable on the oil that it truly cemented my love for the company. They could have charged more. The quality of the oil was first rate. It was whisper light and was downright luxurious. It left a sexy sheen to the skin instead of an oil slick.
The scent was addictive. It has sex appeal with notes of Tiare and a spice driven drydown. It smells like expensive suntan lotion that has been warmed by the sun. I found myself layering it with everything from Bond's Chinatown(a mixing recipe created by Tbone) to Bond's Fire Island. I could not stop reaching for it all summer.
It became a second skin.
