If you watched my video that I popped up yesterday, then you would have seen me singing the praises of what I think may be my new favourite perfume. I have been after this perfume since it’s release, in fact I believe the poster advertisements may have been stalking me, so when my boyfriends Mum gifted the (new-ished released) Elie Saab Le Parfum fragrance for Christmas I was a very happy lady indeed. I’m not sure if it was because I wanted to be the model on the poster, the beautiful bottle or the fact that I adore Elie Saab designs, but this perfume seriously caught my eye and I have to say it was love at first sniff…

Now when I first spritzed this there was something about it that made me think of the first ever perfume I owned – CK One. I’m not sure if it was freshness of the scent or the notes, but to me it was like a more sophisticated and girlie version of it. I am terrible at describing perfumes, I would just describe this as ‘fresh, soft and girlie’ so I have enlisted the power of the Internet to investigate further. Apparently this perfume contains notes of orange blossom, jasmine, cedar, patchouli (a common note in a lot of perfumes that I love) and honey rose accord. After I read this it definitely all made much more sense – I can smell the honey and jasmine and it’s bloody gorgeous. A quick google lead me to MakeupAlley reviews, where this perfume only got 3.5 lipsticks out of 5 – in fact it seems that a lot of people hated it! So I would definitely recommend having a whiff before you buy. It’s not the cheapest perfume in the world and can be found for around the £38 mark online from FeelUnique. Have you had a sniff of it yet?
