NEW YORK — Funeral services will be held this morning for Clare Cain, a retired Elizabeth Arden Inc. executive who developed Elizabeth Taylor's landmark White Diamonds fragrance. She died at home in East Hampton, N.Y., Saturday, the day after her 73rd birthday, according to her daughter, Clare Farella. She had suffered a long battle with breast cancer.
In the early Nineties, Cain was one of the most productive and influential executives working in the American fragrance industry. As vice president of global fragrance development, she spearheaded the development of White Diamonds, which won a coveted FiFi award in 1992, and a number of other designer projects in the Arden stable.
