The days of cheap, tacky celebrity fragrances are coming to an end and they're being replaced by celebrated designers and established artists bringing some much needed glamour back into the market. We've had Jimmy Choo, Diane von Furstenberg and now Elie Saab is bringing a touch of elegance and a sprinkle of his native Lebanon into his very own scent.
"Most famous for the couture gowns sought after by red carpet sirens such as Mila Kunis, Halle Berry & Scarlet Johansson; Elie Saab brings to life in his designs the universal childhood dream of being a princess among women - whether she is a bride on her wedding day, a princess at a gala event, or a celebrity on the red carpet. Made to shine and make women stand out, his dresses are intended for exceptional moments, the ones that are remembered for a lifetime. He now invites all women who dream of wearing ELIE SAAB to slip a touch of magic and absolute femininity into their lives with ELIE SAAB Le Parfum."
Created by perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, Elie's debut fragrance is composed as an 'ode to light', celebrating the splendor of Elie Saab’s native Lebanon and the brilliance of radiant femininity. With notes of orange blossom, jasmines, cedar wood and rose honey, it sounds rich and luxurious - I can't wait for a sniff myself. If the images are anything to go by, this is an addition to fragrance halls that will be very well received by women who want to add a touch of 'exceptional' to their lives.
