Aerin Lauder’s Fragrances Bridge Art, Elegance And Science With A New Website Designed By Hush

Lifestyle brand AERIN, well-known for its graceful approach to beauty, accessories and home furnishings, tapped iconic design agency HUSH to build an interactive web experience in celebration of its latest foray into creating fragrances. The site,, invites visitors to explore videos of Aerin Lauder’s personal history and the way that memories linked directly to scents have fueled her life-long passion for beautiful fragrances.


“We took a simple and elegant approach to exploring the world of fragrance. It can be a science-heavy subject, but driven by artistry and craft – in the same way that wine and food are both art and science,” says HUSH Creative Partner David Schwarz. “We were interested in the artistic, emotional story behind these creations and gave consumers the opportunity to engage on multiple levels.”

Visitors are able to learn in-depth information about the ingredients used to create each fragrance, and design custom prints utilizing images of those same ingredients. HUSH ensured that the online experience is streamlined yet lush, offering visitors both creativity and utility. The inspiration and process behind the project was closely tied to Aerin Lauder’s personal evolution. “AERIN is very much a brand built on a figurehead and her impeccable taste,” says Schwarz.

This project is the latest in a string of immersive brand collaborations, including a Super Bowl themed audio-visual installation in NYC’s Niketown and Estée Lauder’s luminous “The Beauty of Night” site which positioned the brand’s Advanced Night Repair product as a point of connection for women from different cultures and countries.
