Date:May 4, 2011
In 1968, I was an 18 year-old girl going out into the wide world of college, marriage, and life. I decided that I needed to find a perfume that matched my new “sophisticated self.” After trying many scents, one day I smelled Estée on a lovely young woman, stopped her on the street, and asked her what perfume she was wearing. As soon as she told me, I rushed to the department store to buy my first Estée perfume. It became the only scent that I ever wore. It smelled so good on me, reacted so positively with my body chemistry, it was as though Estée Lauder had created the scent especially for me. Now, people stopped ME on the street to ask what I was wearing.
To this day, Estée is my signature fragrance and smells just as good as it did when I was 18. So, for 40+ years, I have used this wonderful scent and still have heads turn, and people ask what I am wearing. (I don’t wear it out as much now, because I am sensitive to those who have allergies to fragrance).
Since Estée was Estée Lauder’s second perfume creation, I imagine it was one of her favorite scents, as well. Please stay true to her vision and keep this wonderful, romantic, sensuous scent. Perfumes come and go, but for 40+ years, Estée has given thousands upon thousands of your loyal customers’ great pleasure. For Estée lovers, this is the only perfume that we will ever want or need.
Best For no one until it is restore and rates a 5 again
I have loved this parfume for many years,it was the only one I would wear, but something has changed over the last couple years. I am truly sad over it! This parfume was Estee"s name sake. What happened? It starts out great and in about 2-3 hours it smells nasty. Have regulations made you change it or what? Please restore to its original ingredients! It's the fragrance that carries the Queen of Cosmetics name. I just stopped wearing it, but nothing else compares to its original scent. I still have some dry cleaning clothes in my closet that I haven't wore in years and they still hold the original fragrance smell and it makes me want to cry. We lost Estee Lauder (Queen of the Cosmetics) and we lost her Estee parfume!
Ladies, there was a 2-3 year time period that Estée was tweaked. I stopped buying because of the headache I'd get. I called EL in NYC and they confirmed changes had taken place to align with worldwide standards. Then in 2010, EL began taking some of their oldies and trying to make them smell like the original creations. Those of you who don't like it, need to look at the letter and two numbers stamped on the bottom of the bottle. It is called the batch code. Batch codes can be found online by using google. I bought two bottles of A31=America, March, 2011. The tester bottle was still old and stinky but I made sure I had a good batch code. Ordering directly from the company (with free shipping and guarantees on returns) will be the best way to get the most recent formulation. Though it's not exactly like I wore for decades (till 2007), it smells good and soapy and garners compliments again. GIVE IT ANOTHER TRY AND CHECK THE BATCH CODE!!!!
I have been wearing Estee for 33 years and I adore it, I have dozens of bottles of perfume that I try but I always come back to Estee. It has been my signature scent, however I must say you have changed it and it isn't the same. I no longer get compliments and I always use to and the fragrance just doesn't last. Please, please go back to the original formulation, there is nothing else like it! In addition it is very difficult to find gift sets and we would all love it if you made a purse spray in this scent. This is her namesake Estee, she and the fragrance, deserve to stay true to their original beauty.
I am 67 , and have worn Estee' for most part of 40 years. It is one of few that doesn't give me a headache. Left it for awhile , came back and it's different. I have gone between Pure and Super trying to find that fragrance that was so fresh and lasted all day and when I opened my closet it was there . What happened? It's not lasting , not same smell and no one asks what it is any longer. Please put it back .I don't like the new and improved .version. You can't improve on perfection. Go back to the other formula and give this one a new name (Imposter ? ) or the heave ho. What ever works cause this is not my Estee' It was perfect.
This was previously my most complimented and considered my signature scent, but I've shifted to other brands because I noticed the change in its scent. I hope the company brings back its original formula.
I have loved this perfume since I was a child and my favorite Aunt wore it. I started wearing it as a teenager and have loved it for years but it seems to have changed ?? Please put it back the way it was or rename this perfume something else. I still like the new version but it is definitely a different perfume!
This is the only perfume I have worn since high school. Absolutely love it and all of the compliments I receive. In an elevator someone always remarks "who smells so good?" My 5 yr old grandaughter ran up to me in the park saying "Nana, I knew you were here, I could smell you!" Was so disappointed when the body cream was discontinued - bought 10 jars....used the last one. Perhaps you could have a come back for this product? Please let us know if you ever plan to discontinue this line.....you will need to up production prior as many of us will buy enough to last through our lifetime!
I have used this pdoduct for many years. People were always asking me what I was wearing, telling me I smelled so good. However, the past year they had to change the ingredients of the perfume and it doesn't have the same aroma as before and people have noticed it. I still wear it and I miss the original scent.
Don't be fooled by how long Estee Pure Fragrance has been around. There's a good reason for it, it's a wonderful product. I have worn it for years and it never fails that both men and women have commented on how nice I smell and/or ask what I'm wearing. I was very diasppointed to learn some of the Estee products have been discontinued (perfumed dusting powder and lotion). Please keep this fragrance as it is a proven winner!
My grandmother wore this when I was growing up, it always smelled good on her. When she died I decided to start wearing it, to carry on the tradition. It smells wonderful on me and folks ask me now if it is still sold in stores!!
Best For awakening the senses and evolving one's soul
Ever since I was thirteen years old...I have always loved Estee...by Estee Lauder.
I remember it like it was yesterday. The first thing I remember while walking into my sister's building was....the smell.
For some unknown reason, the housing projects didn't smell of defeat, and/or "de-feet" of several smelly men. It didn't smell like dinner carefully and lovingly created from the hearts of several single working mothers and/or fathers trying to maintain a healthy balanced meal for their children.
It didn't smell like the sweat of a hard working person, dragging their tired bones into the building...keeping up their strength until they can put the key into their locks and pass out a few feet from their threshold. This time it smelled...rather incredible.
My sister lived on the second floor, and it never dawned on me that it could have possibly wafted from my sisters apartment. Her home always smelled like love and determination, but this was different. Then again....what did I know...I had no idea what it was in the first place.
Walking into the front door of my sisters apartment. The sweet smell of flowers mixed with love was in the air as far back as the elevator. The corridors were riddled with the scent, and i was hypnotized.
I was a tomboy. Perfumes, and girly stuff never EVER interested me...not like tackle and two-hand touch football. But for some reason, this scent kidnapped my nose hairs, and wrapped itself deep underneath my skin. I had no choice but to surrender.
I had to find out what it was. When she opened the door, the smell ran up to me, tenderly cupped its arms around my entire body and embraced me. It was the warmest feeling I ever encountered.
I followed my sister as she returned to whatever it was she was doing. As I walked towards the back of her apartment, the smell grew, and I had to ask her..."Bo...what is that smell?"
She looked at me and smiled at me with her eyes. Probably because that was not the sort of thing i was ever into, and i guess the idea of her sister finally becoming a girly girl thrilled her to no end.
She opened her closet and pulled out a small glass bottle. The label said Estee. A word I would never ever forget. She opened it and placed a dab behind both of my ears...and I was immediately transformed.
I longed for fashionable skirts, scarves, white gloves, and lace frilly things. I wanted to go to the nearest store and buy a couple of high heeled shoes. I wanted to shop for makeup, jewelry, pantyhoses, and matching bra and panty sets.
I wanted to do my hair in girly styles, and throw out all of my caps. I wanted to dit dainty and cross my legs. I was awake. The woman inside of me was up and walking out of me, leaving that tomboy behind.
Here I am 49 yrs old....and my family knows me by my scent. They can always tell when I was at their home,even if I had long since gone. It has been lovingly termed..Reba's smell...by all who know me and know of me.
I thank you ESTEE LAUDER for giving me the chance to grow. For allowing the inner spirit that was dormant inside of me to awaken at first whiff...
Thank you Estee Lauder....for changing my childhood for the better.
For 25 years I have worn Estee...it brought me many compliments, and I truly loved the scent. However, I have stopped wearing it since it was 'modified'. It's not the same! I don't like how it smells now...the powder seems to be the same, but the perfume is stronger and spicier. What I loved before was how clean and flowery and soft it smelled. I find the scent offensive and refuse to wear it now. Is there any way to suggest it is changed back? Because I won't ever buy it again as it is. I loved it and I miss it. Please bring back the old Estee.
This is my all time favorite, but the pure fragrance and super cologne do not measure up to the original perfume. Since this perfume carries the Estee name is should be brought back. The original is an ageless scent.

For 16 years, I was a regular at the Estee Lauder counter. I even bought some facial products, since I was introduced to them through "gift with purchase".
When I went to replenish my Estee Pure Fragrance spray in 2008, I immediately detected that something was "off". I returned the bottle, but found all the bottles were the same. Thankfully, that sales associate dug through her drawer and found an older bottle & I was able to have my same Estee. The original juice is greener in color; the reformulated is more yellow. Another SA at an EL counter told me that customers have complained about the change in Estee and some have returned their bottles.
Please bring back the original formulation ~ at least the one you sold through the 80's and early to mid-90's. There was nothing on the market that compared!

I have noticed a chnage in the scent to my very favorite Cologne. I have used the ESTEE line for over 20 years and am saddened that Estee Lauder decied to change the formula. It is totally different. I tried to change my purchase thinking that it was just that one bottle but it is all changed. Please bring back the original scent. Also, bring back the bath powder and whatever you do don't discontinue the Body Lotion. This new scent deserves a 3 star but the old scent deserves a 10 plus star.
I have used estee for over 30 years but the new fragrance is not the same please oh please give us back the old fragrance.My kids who are grown even noticed that it is different from when they were little.....

I have been wearing Estee for about 27 years (I'm 47). To me it is the BEST of all of the fragrances to come from Estee Lauder. Everytime, and I mean everytime I wear it, both men and women ask what I have on. ALERT for all of you who love this fragrance like I do, hit on the link for the DISCONTINUED items and you will see that they are DISCONTINUING the Estee Super Cologne Spray and the Estee Body Lotion!!!!! I was shocked when I saw this!! It looks like they still have the Estee Pure Fragrance Spray available, for now anyway. It was bad enough that you could no longer get the Powder, but now they're doing away with the Cologne and Lotion! Please do what I did and contact Estee Lauder, I'm sure our opinions won't matter, but hey it's worth a try. It's a sad, sad day ladies. One of Estee's first and oldest fragrances and they're doing away with it.
