Elie Saab Le Parfum- The Eau de Toilette

Elie Saab Le Parfum was one of last year's strong releases in fragrance. A year later the EDT is being released .

In general EDTs are  lighter versions of the original scent and here they've ( the designer and perfumer Francis Kurkdijian ) have decided to highlight the orange blossom note , a memory of which  is a treasured part of Saab's childhood.

The orange blossom  here is light  and breezy  with hints of citrus from mandarin tree blossom, a touch of sweetness via the rose honey note , also found in the original perfume, and a voluptuous ( is there any other kind?)  gardenia. As it dries down , it doesn't change a lot but the  grounding note of vetiver  make a small appearance .

This is very much a white floral but one easily suited to summer . It's not a wildly unique fragrance, but a pretty one all the same.  It lasts long for an EDT, and a little goes a long way.  You need one to two spritzes max.

Elie Saab  Le Parfum The Eau de Toilette will be available in August at Neimans, Saks, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.
