The fragrance that will forever remind me of Christmas 2016 has to be the Elie Saab Le Parfum Eclat D’Or fragrance.
Over the festive period, I didn’t stop talking about this beauty on social media as well as in my Luxury Gifts for Women post. It was a collectors limited edition fragrance which made it highly covetable but frustratingly hard to get a hold of at the same time!
If you’re a fan of the original Elie Saab Le Parfum fragrance then I’m sure you’d love this one as Eclat D’Or is along the same lines as the original fragrance but it has been given a little sprinkle of Christmas magic.
Perfumer Francis Kurkdjian who came up with the concept of the original Le Parfum scent has teamed up with Elie Saab to reimagine it; adding sweet Christmas notes to it. Le Parfum Eclat D’Or has the scent of Bergamot, Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Ylang Ylang, Rose Honey, Nectar and Patchouli which combine together to make a truly special fragrance.
Not only that, but the signature bottle shaped has been upgraded with gold facets to make it even more stunning. I like to keep a perfume bottle out on a side table in my bedroom and this has been the one that I have displayed there over the last couple of months. Its such an easy to wear fragrance that is perfect for all occasions which makes it a great choice for spritzing on before I head out the door.
This is the ideal daytime scent for me as I do prefer something sexier and stronger to wear on an evening but I’d think that for most people, this would be a perfect all round perfume regardless of the time of day or event. The overall effect is very elegant, classic and feminine and it is relatively long lasting too.
Just like the colour of the bottle would suggest, this perfume sold like gold dust! The only place that I have ever been able to find it listed for sale online is John Lewis but it has been out of stock now for ages.
I wanted to pop this post together because over the last week a couple of you have messaged me to say that you were going to buy it when I originally put the gift guide post up, waited and now can’t find it. I’ve looked around online for you and if you google the name of the perfume, there are a couple of sites that come up that have limited numbers in stock; they look like international pharmacy/beauty style websites so I can’t be certain of how reliable they are so can’t recommend them I’m afraid. There is currently two bottles on sale on the UK Ebay though so I’d recommend heading there if you weren’t able to buy a bottle originally. I hope that helps!
So the question is, were you one of the lucky ones who were able to snap up one of these gorgeous bottles of perfume?
