The St. Regis scent, known as "Caroline's Four Hundred" is inspired by one of the most splendid balls, taking its name from the notable guest list that represented the highest class of New York's society in 1900. "The" Mrs. Caroline Astor, the mother of St. Regis founder John Jacob Astor IV, and matriarch of the St. Regis brand was known for her rich traditions from the afternoon tea to midnight supper events and her love of fresh, abundant botanicals, that can be found at every St. Regis around the globe.
With rich notes of American Beauty roses, her favorite flower, whitest lilies, green stems and the delicate sweetness of quince, apples and cherry blossoms, Caroline's Four Hundred embrases the blooms that adorned her ballroom.
