Each Aerin product is inspired by the lifestyle and experiences of Aerin Lauder, its founder and creative director. In the case of the Tangier Vanille perfume, the granddaughter of Estée Lauder was inspired by her trips to Morocco, and took from its palaces and gardens, markets and unique smell of spices to create a spicy, warm scent with vanilla, amber, bergamot, Bulgarian rose, sandalwood, and musk, among other ingredients. The combination is rich, but settles into a light, wearable scent that may work for both day and night.

"Tangier Vanille is not just a fragrance but is a complete experience,” Lauder explains, revealing that vanilla is the main accord that sums up her feelings for North Africa. “The heart of the fragrance showcases Madagascar Vanilla, one of the finest and most expensive vanillas in the world,” she says. “Its unique and distinct impression offers a twist on the traditional sweet aroma with added floral undertones. It creates a delicate yet full aroma.”

“Scent is always tied to a memory and all of the ingredients we have chosen for the Tangier Vanille remind me of my travels to Morocco,” she adds. “The storytelling and feeling that this fragrance creates are what makes it unique.”

Aerin Lauder in Morocco

Morocco is Lauder’s favorite travel destination, which is reflected in other lines under the Aerin label, from the colors and the golds to the bohemian flair. Her favorite memory of the place was the time she spent at the Marrakech home of Frederick Vreeland, the son of Diana Vreeland and former American ambassador to Morocco. “The riad boasts five acres of gardens and features a wonderful mix of Moroccan, European, and Asian design. The house was the backdrop for a photo shoot I did for Town&Country. It was a very memorable trip. Rustan’s Makati, 813.3739.
