Elie Saab has got to be my favourite designer. From the runways to the red carpet, his creations are always magical and amazing, so when his signature fragrance came out, Elie Saab Le Parfum, boy I was excited and it went above expectations with its scent of enchantment.
ELIE SAAB Le Parfum is a fragrance, which celebrates the splendor and the brilliance of radiant femininity with a floral solar woody theme. From the first notes, the soaring scent of orange blossom sets the tone for this olfactory spell. The heart is amplified by the most sumptuous quality of jasmines, absolutes of jasmine grandiflorum and sambac, which enriches its sensuality with the gentle shading of patchouli. The under-layers of cedar woody accord and honey gives the floral notes a new density, unfurling an infinitely elegant and addictive scent.
I am seriously not kidding when I say I want to live eternally with this heavenly elixir of liquid gold. It is love at first whiff; the smell is so comforting and beautiful, it’s as if you’re bathing in the Garden of Eden.
The encasing of said liquid gold is a gem itself, with the transparency and luminosity of heavy glass, cut like crystal; it is a veritable prism with its facets capturing and distilling every ray of light and mirroring to infinity the honeyed tones of the perfume.
“I wanted something simple, straight lines, the rigor of a cube and the sensation of an object made to be held in the hand, but with the density of beautiful objects. And as always, light as the overarching theme. For me, light is eternal strength,” said Elie Saab.
The campaign features the exquisite beauty of Anja Rubik (in Elie Saab of course) as photographed by Mert & Marcus. Incarnating an urban princess at the magic moment when the exceptional appears in the everyday:
“Tonight, the whole world is waiting for her. She is floating over the city, radiant. Wearing a sublime chiffon dress that seems to carry her. She moves forward, bathed in light, making her way through the crowd. The light fabric shines like a brilliant veil against the darkness of the city. She is living this exceptional moment with intensity …”
Along with the release of the signature fragrance, the range also includes additional products, based on four feminine beauty rituals to make the fragrance last all day long. The perfumed body cream, body lotion, body wash and deodorant reinforce and strengthen the fragrance. A perfect signature scent for the modern day princess seeking radiance and femininity – seriously!
