Signature Scent

Caroline's Four Hundred is named for "The" Mrs. Caroline Astor, the matriarch of the St. Regis brand. The rich, green fragrance was created by Carlos Huber of ARQUISTE Parfumeur, inspired by the exquisite floral arrangements at one of Caroline's last grand galas during the Gilded Age.
