My mother was an Elizabeth Arden woman. She’d take me on trips to the mall, where we’d step inside Dillard’s and walk up to a counter filled with tons of colors and all kinds of things I didn’t yet understand how to use. My mother would buy the same thing: the pancake makeup, the loose powder, the liquid eyeliner, the lipstick, the blush, and her favorite fragrance to this day: Red Door.
I found it so fascinating, and like a lot of kids, I couldn’t wait until I got older and was able to wear makeup. I loved looking at the shiny compacts, the rich colors and the free gift promotions.
When my maternal grandfather was still alive, he always made sure the women in his family smelled good, so he’d get my grandmother Estee Lauder’s White Linen, and Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door and Sunflowers for my mother and me, respectively.
Just thinking about it makes me feel two feet shorter and looking over the counter with wide eyes.
So when I received this deal in my inbox, yeah – I got a bit nostalgic.
