Nine years and two million bottles after its launch, Caudalie founder Mathilde Thomas called upon fashion designer L’Wren Scott (for a previous post on her, please click here) to decorate a limited edition bottle of the brand’s cult facial mist EAU DE BEAUTÉ. Based on a 17th Century elixir used by the Queen of Hungary, this powerful plant-based formula tightens pores, boosts radiance and sets makeup in one quick spritz.
“About fifteen years ago, I was in Paris and it was hot,” explains Scott. “A pharmacist suggested Beauty Elixir to moisturise my skin, and I was really impressed by the results. Ever since then, I’ve been using it when I wake up in the morning to set my make-up, and several times throughout the day, like when I need a refreshment. It’s part of my travel ritual, too; I use it on aeroplanes to moisturise my skin.”
Printed with an illustration inspired by Gustav Klimt, mosaics and the female form, let the pretty bottle take pride of place on your dressing table. This herbal blend of myrrh, orange blossom, rosemary, peppermint, rose and rosemary balm belongs in a modern-day beauty must-have list.
