Lebanese couturier Elie Saab, ‘famous for his graceful, feminine dresses,’ Launched in 2011 his first perfume. In its very first year Elie Saab Le Parfum scooped the coveted Fragrance Foundation Award (FiFi) for Best New Fragrance in the UK, the US and France, a phenomenal hat trick.
Couturier Elie Saab’s signature scent reveals orange-blossom. You’ll also notice sun-drenched notes and waves of jasmine. The woodsy trail features an alliance of patchouli, cedar and ‘rose honey’. In 2012, Elie Saab unveiled the Eau de Toilette version, which includes notes of mandarin blossom, gardenia and vetiver. Both, like other Elie Saab scents ‘signed’ by Francis Kurkdjian.

I would almost classify this as a ‘woody oriental’. This would make a great scent to wear to work. For me it remembers me of Meditarian holidays, and my visits to Syria, Lebanon and Jordan… The cedar jasmine duet is gorgeous!
