Estée Lauder have announced a new Luxury Fragrance Collection, which features eight new fragrances at a higher price-point than their standard line.

Group president of Lauder, Stéphane de La Faverie, told WWD "We see what I could call an inversion of the pyramid, with a rapid, rapid acceleration of the luxury and niche fragrances. While prestige is still the biggest category, the one that has the most amount of growth is definitely luxury"

The company is no stranger to high-end luxury fragrances, having created the Tom Ford fragrance range, and the acquisitions of high-end luxury perfume houses, such as Frederic Malle, By Kilian and Le Labo.
