Wedding dresses and perfumes
Wedding dresses and perfumes - Elie Saab is one of the best in the world. His perfumes have the perfect cut in the olfactory sense - just like his wedding dresses. Opulent, but not kitschy. Sensual, but not vulgar. Elegant, but not boring.

The new Elie Saab 'Le Parfum Essentiel' is a fantastic creamy, fresh and warm old-school women's fragrance. It has a floral note in the heart that makes it hard to create a perfume without it looking too heavy and old-fashioned - Gardenia.
If it is badly balanced in the perfume, it can ruin the whole impression. But since Saab knows what he's doing, 'Le Parfum Essentiel' is a first-class fragrance, without the irritating narcotic effect that gardenia sometimes produces.

On the skin, the juicy notes of orange and tangerine alternate with the soft woodiness of patchouli and cedar.

Imagine you're at a summer wedding in the Hamptons, bathed in the pink sunset of Long Island, surrounded by pearls and diamonds, ringing crystal glasses and light summer dresses... That's how this perfume is - in a high-quality bottle, with a superbly constructed composition of notes, without flaws and with a perfect drydown in the play of components.

For young girls it gives a noble touch of already well developed taste, for adult women it gives freshness, softness and accessibility. It's a win-win situation.

Then let it be that I like flower-warblers!
Tested once and immediately approved. Only: What does good mean? "Good" in this case means: Even the first second is pleasant, very flowery, very delicate, very pretty. "Good" does not mean unprecedented, extraordinary, fascinating. But..: You can get along here. This little spring scent can be something for every day, for those simple, normal days when there is no special event, no special date, no special appointment and you just want to be yourself without having to think much about who you actually are. An uncomplicated fragrance, therefore, for uncomplicated days. Not too elegant, not too casual, not too sweet, not too exciting. Ideal, however, if you have discovered the first signs of spring and want to keep this impression for a little longer. Ideal for feeling a little spring at home. For me personally - but of course this may be due to my rehearsal - the start with mandarin orange and neroli, as indicated by the pyramid, is very limited; really fresh is different. If anything, I perceive the tangerine as a very light fruit sweetener. Directly, however, there is also the floweriness, very intense, but really quite beautiful, I think. To be honest, I had imagined gardenia quite differently now, I had somehow connected something unpleasant, strongly herb with it, that was probably wrong. Here, the delicate flowers simply dominate, so the bottle - admittedly a bit kitschy - fits the fragrance impression quite well. The cedar wood also quickly penetrates to a perceptible level, so that after some time, about half an hour, the scent loses a little of its strong floral character and becomes more balanced, softer, in that the cedar wood, perhaps something else as well, holds up against it with clear reason and brings the whole thing back down to earth. Since the development of fragrance has this effect on me, I easily get the idea of castles in the air - and insights, of spring dreams - and disillusionment. But that is not bad, in fact it is particularly beautiful. The delicate creaminess that the fragrance takes on after some time makes it more suitable for everyday use and somehow more realistic or, as I said before, more sensible. The flowers remain, but they are tamed in a winning way. All in all, a very nice scent experience; the scent would not become a favourite, but I can't complain about it

olyan, mint a royal, de kevésbé édes az idő előrehaladtával, és nagyon cédrusos és pacsulis lesz
