Elie Saab have released their new limited fragrance for summer 2017 and wow, it is beautiful!
Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection is a fruity floral fragrance that is sweet and addictive yet still it retains that elegant femininity that I associate with the original Le Parfum fragrance.
Inspired by the Cannes Film Festival, this glamorous perfume is perfect for everyday wear during the warming months because it is light and fruity but lasts for hours on the skin.
This is the summer scent I have been waiting to find for years. It is very much a grown up summer perfume which makes a pleasant change from the overly sickly sweet fragrances released for the warmer months from other houses.
With a top note of red mandarin, a heart of orange blossom, jasmine and pomegranate nectar and a base of patchouli, the effect is enchanting and seductive in equal parts and I cannot get enough of it.
Aside from the beautiful jewel packaging that has been given a summery tint and the orange blossom note which is the olfactory signature of the first Le Parfum, the new resort fragrance is very different, at least to my nose.
It is similar enough that fans of the original will still love it but dissimilar enough that it will garner new fans that perhaps thought the signature Le Parfum wasn’t for them.
This is definitely a scent for all and as my signature daytime fragrance this summer, I’d urge you all to give it a try next time you’re passing a fragrance counter.
I spotted it in duty free as I was passing through the airport so if you’re travelling abroad, that’s going to be the time to grab yourself a bargain.
If you love the sound of this perfume then be quick as it is limited edition!
