Great job Meghan! I love the tease at the end.

Meghan, I can't help but wonder what the watermelon solid fragrance smelled like. Summer? Fruity goodness?

Meghan Grossman Hansen

The watermelon compact was sold with the "White Linen" fragrance by Estee Lauder. White Linen by Estee Lauder was introduced in 1978; it is described by www.esteelauder.com as a "Lush Floral" fragrance and "Cool, Clean, Crisp". Top notes include Bulgarian Rose, Jasmine, and Muguet; middle notes are Violet and Orris; based notes of Vetiver, Moss and Amber. Although I've never sniffed the compact, I imagine it would actually smell like early spring.

I tend to like fruity floral fragrances but I would have bought the watermelon compact because it is so beautiful. In typical Estee Lauder fashion, it is tres chic! :)


I agree that this is a wonderful collection. I 'stumbled' upon this site while searching for articles related to perfume. I'm curious about Annette Green - is/was she a perfumer or solely a contributor to this collection?

I believe Annette Green was never a perfumer. She did work in the industry and is a former president of the Fragrance Foundation. She also collected a large number of fragrance bottles and ephemera, which she donated to the FIDM Museum in 2005.
