New year, new smell

Every Christmas my mother buys me a new perfume. She usually asks me to list a few that I like and she will surprise me. This year, my list consisted of Tom Ford Black Orchid, Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche, Jo Malone Wild Fig and Cassis and Elie Saab. My mum opted to buy me Elie Saab, largely I think because she had smelled a tester of it on me and liked it! It's one of those perfumes I seem to always look at yet I've never managed to buy. I absolutely love the bottle. It looks so classy sitting on my dresser and like many of my favourite perfumes, the bottle weighs an absolute tonne! 

Unlike many of the other fragrances I own which usually have floral top notes, this has top notes of orange blossom and jasmine middle notes. I must admit that I love Elie Saab Le Parfum the more it settles in to the skin. It is a long lasting fragrance- one of those 'I sprayed it on my scarf last week and I can still smell it' sort of types. It also has been really remarked on by my friends and family when I have worn it as they have noted it is a quite unique fragrance. I think like Chanel and Jo Malone, Elie Saab is timeless and I could imagine wearing this in 50 years.

A possible new signature scent!
