Elie Saab Le Parfum L’Edition Argent ($124 for 3.0oz; neimanmarcus.com) is a new holiday launch from Elie Saab, the classic Le Parfum EDP is dressed for the festive season in a beautiful platinum and gold bottle.
Elie Saab’s Le Parfum is an Orange Blossom heavy scent with a hint of Patchouil and Musk at the base. The opening is quite heady, mostly from the Jasmine and the dry down brings out a bit of warmth from the Cedarwood, Musk, Patchouli and a hint of Rose. Its a slightly strong scent, great for the fall/winter season and a classic woody floral with a hint of spiciness. I reach out to Le Parfum from fall through spring - its a nice, sophisticated, grown up fragrance I love this time of the year. Elie Saab’s bottle designs always look beautiful and the holiday packaging is quite special, vanity worthy and is a perfect gift for any fragrance lover.
