Pleasures, in addition to being one of Estee Lauder's most successful fragrances, was the first perfume to incorporate two unusual new ingredients: baie rose (a spice from Reunion Island) and karo karundi, flowers from a West African shrub. These ingredients add an unexpected spicy, peppery note to the body of the fragrance, which is intended to give the wearer the sense of "flowers covered with rain." Our duplication of this gorgeous best-seller starts with top notes of lily and violet leaf, with an intense floral-ozonic middle of lilac, peony, jasmine, and rose. Bottom notes of sandalwood and patchouli make for a smooth, long-lasting finish.
