Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection debuts for Spring with a melody of Summer-y notes that takes you away to a day in the sun on a warm tropical beach! Considering Elie Saab’s fragrances very rich and warm I find the La Parfum Resort Collection a refreshing change.
Take a look!
In 2011, Elie Saab launched the Resort Collection as simply “Le Parfum”. For 2015, that changes to Le Parfum Resort Collection! This limited edition fragrance comes housed in a gorgeous cut crystal bottle with an azure tint. The bottle is elegant and captures the essence of the ocean.
The La Perfum Resort Collection was developed by Francis Kurkdijan and is a fresh, fruity floral that almost has a bit of a masculine edge. It contains noses of fig, orange blossom, jasmine, and frangipani.
I read a review that said this had Elie Saab’s DNA and it’s true, there’s some element of Elie Saab’s fragrances in the Resort Collection. It’s that crossover of being very feminine yet also with some unisex note that makes it feel like a warm hug from that special man in your life.
Without a doubt there’s a tropical element here but don’t think pineapples and coconut but more a warm, humid day on a tropical island! At first mist the fig dominates the fragrance but as it dries down you’ll find that orange blossom comes out to play with a mix of sultry jasmine. There’s cedar in this fragrance as well and for me that’s what gives it a slightly warmer, masculine edge.
It’s a funny thing as although most would classify this as a fruity scent, it’s so much more complex and the warmth of the notes combine to create a truly sexy fragrance. This has excellent throw at first mist which lasts for about four hours on my skin but into hour five I see a little bit of fading on this one. It’s a lot lighter when compared to other richer fragrances that Elie Saab is known for.
If you’re looking for fragrance that evokes the warm sexiness of a glamorous Summer vacation Elie Saab Le Parfum Resort Collection is the perfect blend. This one is being taken on Spring break and Summer vacation with me.
