If we were to get married, we’d like to wear Elie Saab. Swathes of tulle, intricate lace, glorious embellishment, saturated in sequins, beads and pearls – basically swimming in a sea of white couture.
We’d also like to wear Elie Saab on our skin. And lucky for us, Saab has created just the scent. New down the aisle, Elie Saab White captures the scent of a white bouquet – the classic proponent of any white wedding.
Inspired by the whiteness of matrimony, and of course, ‘the dress’, Saab’s latest fragrance is a symphony of white: musk, ylang ylang, jasmine, peony, vanilla. However, no white bouquet is complete with a hint of greenness. Crisp citrus cuts through the sweet (and the white) with green Mandarin Essence from Italy and Sambac and Orange Blossom Absolutes, whilst a punchy fruit accord rounds out the scent; blackcurrant bud and pear. A delicate dance between juicy and feminine (much like the perfect wedding day), it’s the ultimate scent to get in touch with your feminine side.
Immortalising the monumental occasion of matrimony is no mean feat, and Saab has done it spectacularly. But of course, a marriage needn’t be on the horizon to say ‘I do’. White is always in fashion, so spritz willingly.
