Today is a very special day indeed. Harvey Nichols Dubai is giving you an exclusive chance to be one of the first to purchase the latest beauty offering from couturier to the stars Elie Saab – La Collection des Essences.
Elie Saab, the Lebanese designer, who boasts A-list fans including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift, is launching a deluxe scent collection for savvy customers in the region, available exclusively at Harvey Nichols Dubai, for two weeks before anywhere else in the world. Inspired by his beautiful archived dresses, La Collection des Essences consists of four separate scents, each one inspired by a different outfit made from a different fabric within his extensive career.
To create these beautiful bottles Mr Saab worked in collaboration with famed nose Francis Kurkdjian, the man behind sell-out formulas including Jean-Paul Gaultier’s Le Mâle, Narciso Rodriguez’s For Her and the designer’s previous fragrances Le Parfum and L’Eau Couture. The duo combined the chemistry of Haute Couture with the beauty of haute parfumeire in each of the four bottles.
Titled Ambre, Oud, Rose and Gardenia as an ode to the simplicity of the numbered gowns in an Haute Couture show, each scent is made up of the purest forms of their namesake titles as well as additional high-end ingredients to heighten the effect. The absolute crème de la crème of perfumes, no cost or effort was spared in their conception, from sourcing hand-picked flowers, using ultra-precise distillation and the highest craftsmanship for the flacons they are a true testament to the elegant Elie Saab brand.
Sold as unisex scents, customers are encouraged to make the luxury blends their own and layer any of the four scents on their skin to appreciate the multi-faceted dimensions that the perfumer has created within the collection. As exquisite as wearing a piece of Haute Couture on your body we recommend adding them to your fine fragrance collection ASAP.
