Yet Another Elie Saab Fragrance I Love | Le Parfum in white

I’ve said that already in december, and I will say it again, I don’t particularly enjoy talking about fragrance on the blog. Because I’m really bad at describing scents, but also because I’m really fussy when it comes to fragrances.

That being said, when it comes to the fragrances launched by Elie Saab, I’m starting to see a pattern. I’m not entirely sure why, but I love pretty much every perfume he comes out with. It started with the rose one, then Girl of Now (which I havent mentioned on the blog), then this Christmas’ limited edition, and now this new launch.

This new launch is Elie Saab, le Parfum in white*.

To start with the shallow details, I think it’s my favourite bottle. I love that it’s so simple, mostly white with a few gold details and accents.

I also really like the way they wrote the name of the perfume at the bottom of the bottle with very dainty, aerial gold letters.

As for the scent … well … when I was talking about the Feuilles D’or in December, I was telling that to me it smelled like a fragrance for a lady. And now that I think of it, I believe it’s because to me this scent it very vintage, and so are the Elie Saab fragrances in general. When I wear an Elie Saab perfume i feel transported to when my grandmother was young.

This limited edition “in white” is light though still vintage. It would go really well with a white lace dress, or even a wedding dress. Or any other clothes you choose to wear with it, but sometimes it helps to have a visual when trying to describe a scent.

You could also imagine a nice little patch of grass, in which you would sit down and create flower crowns. Can you smell it ?

Even if I like every Elie Saab fragrance I’ve tried so far, I think that this one is my favourite. I find the bottle really nice, I like the vintage scent that reminds me of my grandmother (but it’s not an old scent at all) and I really like that it’s a bit lighter (though still well grounded) which allows me to wear it daily.

And this is pretty much what I’ve done since I got it in December.

Now’s the time for the bad news as this fragrance isn’t out yet. I’m just teasing you. It’ll be available in March, but I can only encourage you to go and smell it when it comes out. It’s a little poetic wonder.
