Estee Lauder has produced a new edition of collectible compacts every year since the first pressed powder compact in 1963. In 1967, the very first solid perfume compact was introduced: Youth Dew Boutique Oval Compact. This elegant accessory paved the way for hundreds of original designs, inspired by fashion, art, history, nature and even the fragrances themselves.

To date more than 750 one-of-a-kin designs have been created, and thousands have sold worldwide.

More than 30 new compact designs are available at Estee Lauder counters now.
