It was an instant hit after Estée “accidentally” spilled a bottle of the aromatic elixir on the floor of Galeries Lafayette in Paris, igniting a frenzy as the perfume filled the halls of the department store. The scent was bottled in the brand’s original blue-green packaging, which Estée created to “look good in any bathroom” — and which still makes for an excellent
accessory some 60 years later.
