Arden-inspired Colours

Several products created by Elizabeth Arden have colourful names:

- Blue Grass:
the flowery scent of this perfume reminded Elizabeth of the prairies of Kentucky and horse stables there, that is why the image of a blue horse illustrates the package of the product.

- Green Tea:
this fragrance, which energizes the body, has Asiatic overtones.

- Montezuma Red:
a lipstick for the women in the armed forces to match the red on their uniforms.

- Red Door:
named after the Arden day spas which are called "Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salons".

- White Diamonds: perfume worn by Elizabeth Taylor.
