A moment of silence please for that beautiful perfume bottle. (Insert moment here) Thank you.
Elie Saab is a Lebanese fashion designer, and according to the internet Le Parfum was his first fragrance. I’m guessing he wanted to keep the name really simple.
The notes and description of Le Parfum:
A harmony of white flowers, cedar woods and a drop of honey create an encounter as feminine as the trail of an evening gown. An addictive, refined fragrance with a Mediterranean spirit. The exceptional in the every day.
Notes: orange blossom, jasmine, patchouli, rose, cedarwood.
To me Le Parfum does smell very feminine in a luxurious and sophisticated, yet still approachable kind of way. I apply it very lightly and can still smell it faintly at the end of the day. I love the way the bottle feels. The heft of all that glass and the way the angles glide across your hand makes applying Le Parfum a truly elegant experience.
It is available in 1.6oz/$97 and 3oz(pictured above)/$124 bottles. I bought mine in a set with two body lotions during a special event Bloomingdale’s was having for Mother’s Day. The lotions are great for really layering the scent but I haven’t been able to find them sold separately.
