Nov 08 2013 Estée Lauder Pleasures The days are shorter, sunsets are more bright white than warm, crisp air nips my nose and the leaves have mostly fallen. Winter is coming, Christmas is nigh and so is the seasonal re-launch of this epic perfume. Estée Lauder Pleasures was one of the first major American brands that Ian worked on. In many ways, it launched his career into the United States. Pleasures hit the perfume market in 1995 and was the best selling brand by the end of the next year. The lettering, the bottle, the scent – it was, and is, a perfect package.
