Knowing by Estee Lauder was inspired when Evelyn Lauder was on a holiday trip in the south of France. Smelling something she just had to find out what it was. Knowing was released in 1988 as a chypre floral fragrance for women. It is a stunning bouquet of flowers that makes for an elegant and beautiful addition to the Estee Lauder fragrance line.
The top notes are aldehydes, mimosa, rose, coriander, green notes, plum, tuberose and melon. The heart is patchouli, cardamom, cedar, bay leaf, orris root, jasmine, orange blossom, lily-of-the-valley and pitosporum. The base notes are oakmoss, patchouli, civet, spices, vetiver, sandalwood, amber, orris root and musk.
This luxurious and stunning perfume keeps up the classy attitude of Estee Lauder. This creative blend is one of the most iconic scents in history, à la Chanel No 5. Smelling is knowing, and to know this scent is to love it.
