Aerin Lauder Launches Tuberose Collection, Partners With Sotheby’s

Aerin Lauder is channeling grandma Estée with the launch of her tuberose fragrance collection.
“Tuberose reminds me a lot of my grandmother because she would always have tuberoses in her homes right when you walked in,” Lauder said. “There’s something so delicious and luxurious and sweet…it represents friendship and love.”
Lauder chatted about her grandmother, jewelry and femininity at an event Thursday, where she’d partnered with Sotheby’s to celebrate the launch of the scents. Guests were invited to view and try on a collection of Sotheby’s fine jewels that are set for an Oct. 17 auction — Lauder donated two rings (one David Webb, the other Van Cleef & Arpels) — proceeds of which will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by her aunt, Evelyn Lauder.
“My whole life I saw my grandmother always wearing great rings,” Lauder said. Lauder also curated her day and evening jewel picks from the selection of more than 300 pieces of fine jewelry. In addition to draping themselves in items like a Cartier Diamond and Emerald Bracelet featuring elephants (curated for day, and estimated to sell for between $40,000 and $60,0000), guests could have a painter personalize their Aerin tuberose fragrance bottle.
