Elie Saab just launched his first fragrance during an event held in Beirut on May 20. Let’s say it: the floral woody theme is captivating. From the first notes, the orange blossom sets the tone. The heart is amplified by the jasmines – absolutes of jasmine grandiflorum and sambac. The fragrance enriches its sensuality with the gentle shading of a very pure “patchouli heart.” The tone of the white flower bouquet is filled out by a cedar woody accord, which gives the floral notes a new density. The trail unfurls, borrowing its addictive notes from rose honey.
All those features make Elie Saab’s first perfume an excellent choice for the coming summer season.This fragrance will be released next July, but the launch event was held on Friday (May 20) in Beirut.The media were there. The Lebanese and international press ensured a wide coverage of the event.
Vogue website said that the launch of Elie Saab’s first perfume was beeing prepared since 2009, when the designer announced his association with distributor Beauty Prestige International.
An article in the weekly fashion magazine La Parisienne (published by the French daily Le Parisien) , said that Francis Kurkdjian, who participated in the creation of this fragrance, is also the designer of Narcisso Rodriguez For Her, and Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier.
