Intuition Perfume by Estee Lauder, Intuition for women was launched by the brand in 2000 and, as the names suggests, was defined by the company as a tribute to the ‘woman who listens to her inner voice’. This rich fragrance lives up to its description with top notes that consist of mandarin, bergamot and garden notes. The middle notes are gardenia, rose and freesia and the base notes are precious woods, amber and warm-skin accord.
Estee Lauder was born Josephine Esther Mentzer in Queens, New York, in 1908. Her uncle was a chemist and he developed a skin cream for his niece which she would originally sell door to door. In 1946, she founded her beauty company with her husband Joseph. The brand, which only started with a handful of skin care products, would soon become one of the biggest beauty empires in the world, selling its products under its founding name and launching other well-known companies such as Clinique and Mac.
