New in my Christmas wishlist : Untold perfume by Elizabeth Arden

I love Elizabeth Arden, I adore the Eight Hour range (I have both the Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm at my night table to put on when I go to bed - it keeps my lips moisturized  and kissable; and Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sunscreen SPF 15 to use during the day, just wonderful!!).

I have many products from them on my wishlist from the make-up range, to the skincare and of course the perfumes . But I let my mind wonder into the wonderful, magical world of Elizabeth Arden and I moved away from the subject ...
Everything started with a vision and a woman : Elizabeth Arden
A legendary innovator and a tireless entrepreneur, Miss Elizabeth Arden established the American beauty industry a century ago. Born Florence Nightingale Graham, she traveled from rural Canada to New York City, where she opened the first Red Door salon on Fifth Avenue in 1910.

Elizabeth Arden's fundamental belief was that beauty should not be a veneer of makeup, but an intelligent cooperation between science and nature in order to develop a woman's finest natural assets. She lived by her mantra, "To be beautiful is the birthright of every woman."

Miss Arden created skin care products that benefited, not masked, the skin. She not only promoted her concept of Total Beauty, including diligent skincare, nutrition and fitness, but lived it prudently as she persistently sought to bring a scientific approach to skincare formulations.

Miss Arden was uncompromising in her vision to create the new and absolute best products, packaging and services that women not only needed, but desired; whether it was the cult-classic Eight Hour Cream, her legendary Blue Grass fragrance, or a bold red lipstick to coordinate with the uniforms of the women serving in the armed forces during World War II.

Elizabeth Arden's list of beauty innovations is long. She was the first to introduce eye makeup to the women of America and pioneered the creation of the "makeover." With the launch of Ardena Skin Tonic, the company became the first to incorporate its founder's name into a product name. Miss Arden developed the first travel-size beauty products, and was the first in the cosmetics business to train and send out a team of traveling demonstrators and saleswomen.

By the 1930s, Miss Arden had opened Red Door salons in the majority of the fashion capitals around the globe, and proudly acknowledged her accomplishments by proclaiming that there were only three American names known in every corner of the globe: Singer Sewing Machines, Coca-Cola and Elizabeth Arden.

Through it all, Miss Arden created both an empire and a new industry. Her entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to innovation, quality and excellence remain the soul of the company today.   source : elizabetharden.com
Today I will present you the latest perfume launched by Elizabeth Arden : UNTOLD. It comes in three versions : Untold, Untold Absolu and Eau Legere (not available in Romania). The woman this fragrance represents is sweet, feminine but also sophisticated & tantalizing, a modern woman sure of herself and of her power of seduction.
The nose behind this fragrance is Clement Gavarry (Carolina Herrera, Chloe, Elizabeth Arden, Mattew Williamson, Prada, Cavalli, Tom Ford perfumes). It has Top notes of blackcurrant, bergamot, pink pepper & pear; Middle notes of gardenia, peony & jasmine and Base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, musk & amber.
Untold’s notes represent the different facets of a woman’s femininity. The pink pepper and bergamot signify the vibrant, lively facet of a woman. The pear and blackcurrant bud show her unpredictable side. The  gardenia petals and Egyptian jasmine  express the refined, sophisticated woman, and the patchouli heart  and sandalwood are mysterious. Finally, the heated ambers and hypnotic musk show her  sensual side.
The bottle is also telling a story of feminity and elegance: dainty, classic and of timeless beauty, it can easily belong to royalty, socialites or glamarous stars. It is for sure a collector's item!

You can find the perfume in all Kendra and Douglas shops at the price of aprox.400 ron (100ml/3.3oz.) Untold by Elizabeth Arden tells a story about timeless femininity, beauty and elegance and it's worth knowing better!

 We are women. We all like to feel beautiful and attractive. So we use fancy make-up, fine perfumes, wonderful clothes, expensive jewellery, fantastic shoes and matching purses and so many other things. But remember you are always beautiful inside and out at any time.


  1. Ați expus niște idei atât de frumoase și atât de bine argumentate, încât mi se umple inima de bucurie! Rar mi-a fost dat să întâlnesc, oameni așa pasionați! O să încerc și eu parfumul!

  2. Ma bucur ca vorbele mele v-au adus atata bucurie. Inseamna foarte mult pentru mine, mi-a fost frica sa postez despre parfumuri de teama nu a nu le cuprinde frumusetea, magia si povestile in simple cuvinte ... Inseamna ca sunt pe drumul cel bun deci voi continua. Va astept cu drag pe blog!

  3. Ai scris foarte frumos si ma bucur ca cititorii vor cunoaste si omul din spatele brandului. Parfumul asta abia astept sa il miros. De cand am scris despr el jur ca il visez. JUR!

  4. Imi plac mult brandurile cu o poveste interesanta, o viziune si o persoana minunata care a dus un vis la indeplinire against all odds! De aceea imi place ca la primul produs al brandului sa spun cateva cuvinte despre istoria sa. Voi mai continua si seria Focus on ... care da mai multe detalii despre fiecare brand : produsele sale, istoria sa, viziunea si persoanele care l-au creat.

  5. Ai scris asa de frumos, Monica, incat parca imi doream ca articolul sa nu se mai termine!
    Despre parfum tin sa iti zic ca ma tenteaza extrem de mult, mi se pare ca notele sunt perfecte pentru gusturile mele. Cine stie, poate ca o sa fie al meu la un moment dat :)
