In an alternate universe, I am a forever 25-year old housewife chair-ing several charitable organizations and doing high tea socials every now and then. In that alternate universe, my best girls would be joining me in light-colored frocks, hats and we will be sipping Earl Greys in dainty porcelain cups and will be discussing very important topics such as our next high tea social and world peace.
That, of course, is in an alternate universe where I would always have immense time to tea party and money to burn.
I thank my lucky stars that despite not being the forever-25 housewife I am in that alternate universe ala Betty Draper, I had my taste of an afternoon high tea with Elizabeth Arden and a number of Manila's prettiest beauty bloggers.
This season, fall under the enchanting spell of Japan’s famed cherry blossoms with the new Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom. Inspired by the tradition, heritage and experience of a Japanese Hanami Cherry Blossom Festival, this new fragrance captures the mesmerizing and ethereal beauty of cherry blossoms at the peak of spring.
Ethereal, fresh and feminine, this new exquisite citrus floral fragrance brings together the sparkling femininity of delicate pink petals and the lush freshness of green tea leaves to create a truly unique and beautiful fragrance experience. The scent opens with sparkling and luminous accords of lemon and bergamot. Its refreshing drops are combined with green tea vapor to announce delicate cherry blossom mixed with fine notes of green tea leaves. A base incorporates woody notes of birch tree intertwining with angelica and moss.
