St. Regis Hotels & Resorts as the brand and celebrated scent designer Carlos Huber of ARQUISTE, expand the brand’s signature scent offerings to launch a room spray featuring the first-ever bespoke scent, Caroline’s Four Hundred, inspired by Caroline Astor, the matriarch of the hotel’s founding family and doyenne of New York’s Gilded Age society. The scent is featured at all 38 of the luxury brand’s hotels and resorts around the world, the room spray version of the scent has launched this May.
Inspired by one of the most splendid of “The” Mrs. Astor’s famous balls, Caroline’s Four Hundred takes its name from the 400 notable guests that were extended invitations to Mrs. Astor’s exclusive galas, representing the highest echelons of New York society. The scent captures, at once, the exotic woods of the ballroom; the potted palms and apple blossoms that lined the hallways; and the light crisp essence of champagne wafting through the crowds.
With notes of rich American Beauty roses – her favorite flower – green stems, white lilies and the delicate sweetness of quince, apple and cherry blossom, Caroline’s Four Hundred, embraces all of the blooms that adorned her ballroom on that unforgettable evening in 1900.
Caroline’s Four Hundred retails both as a room spray and candle for $80 and is available for purchase on the St. Regis brand’s online retail site, www.stregis.com/boutique.
