embraces you like gentle sunshine. The beauty of this perfume lies in the fact that though you yourself may not be able to experience the first burst of top notes as you do with other perfumes, the dry down notes of cedar wood and honey envelop you delicately like a couture gown and leave a sweet trail behind wherever you go. It is light and feathery, so much so that you may be tempted to splash on a little extra to get more of the perfume. Be cautious though: too much of it can be intoxicating and may make you uncomfortable. So wear it sparingly.
“A couture dress is dedicated to a one and only woman who wishes to be unique for a single moment; it is a dream in its purest form,” says Saab. “A perfume is dedicated to the greatest number and can be worn every day.” However, a fragrance also has the unique quality of smelling different on different people. In fact, it’s often said that the true test of a perfume lies in not how you think it smells but the number of compliments you get after wearing it. Elie Saab Le Parfum is a fragrance that could surely pass this test, provided you master the art of wearing it. We suggest you wear it just behind your knees to keep it discrete, mysterious, and sexy, but then again, experiment with it to find your interpretation of the magic.
