Advantages: Beautiful box, bottle and scent
I received the Elie Saab Le Parfum for Christmas. I had seen it online and instantly liked the box, bottle and description of the perfume. As it was a little out of my price range I didn't feel I could treat myself but when asked what I wanted for Christmas I knew exactly what to suggest.
The box is very pale pink with dark brown lettering. It is simple, elegant and looks expensive. It looks like the perfect gift and I was very excited to open it on Christmas day. The clear glass bottle is almost square in design but cut to look like it is made of crystal. The lid follows this design. The overall look is similar to a crystal wine decanter but not quite so fussy. It looks very pretty, classic and expensive. The perfume is a light peachy pink colour which you can clearly see through the bottle. This makes the bottle look very feminine. It is handy to be able to see the perfume so clearly through the bottle because you know how much you have left to use.
The pump delivers a decent squirt of the perfume which I fell in love with as soon as I smelt it. The tag line for this perfume is "Radiant, voluptuous, addictive" and it really is. When I wear it I can't stop sniffing my wrists! The top note instantly hits you with a waft of radiant sweet orange blossom. The heart note develops into elegant and voluptuous jasmine and patchouli. Finally the base note unfolds into a deep cedar wood and honey rose which leaves you addicted. The way I would describe this perfume is light and fresh but with deeper rich undertones. It is elegant, classic and smells expensive, in my opinion the three most important qualities for a perfume. I only use this perfume for special occasions as it is one of the favourites of my vast collection, therefore it seems to be lasting me well.
This perfume is simply exquisite, which if you know anything about Elie Saab is exactly what you would expect. He creates absolutely gorgeous wedding and evening dresses full of amazingly delicate details. He has been described as being from another time, which I think is reflected in this perfume.
I think this perfume is a quite pricey but not outrageously. A 30ml bottle is £38, 50ml is £55 and 90ml is £71.50, available from most department stores and Boots. It is perhaps quite expensive to buy for yourself as a treat but it is definitely worth putting on your wish list, eventually someone will want a present idea to buy for you! I might look out for it at Duty Free when I next go away to see if I can pick up a bargain there. I would definitely buy this as a gift for someone and as it has a timeless, classic quality to it I think it would be a great present for my mother. I thoroughly recommend this perfume.
