I knew I would love this fragrance before I even smelt it, Elie Saab just get it right every time. Their original EDP is one of my signature scents and this one reminds me of it in some ways, yet is a more tropical, fresher version. I have been wearing this non-stop. It reminds me of long summer days and, even though the bottle is not really what I expected from Elie Saab, I just adore it! The notes include orange blossom, jasmine, frangipani, fig (heaven), cedar and amber. What a combination!! I really can’t get enough of this one!
The fragrance is very much a summer scent in my mind, but I’ve really been enjoying wearing it as it reminds me of a beach, tropical holiday whilst at the same time feeling sophisticated and mature.
Resort Collection takes its name and inspiration from Elie Saab’s 2015 resort collection of clothing which is absolutely beautiful (see images below). This fragrance has been created to evoke “the Amalfi coast, the salty taste of summers spent on its shores and sleek luxury yachts gliding across the sea”. So if you, like me, are day dreaming of a holiday like this, this scent will do the job in making your mind run away to faraway, much more luxurious places!
In the words of Francis Kurkdjian, the man behind all Elie Saab scents, “The fragrance is released in waves like a warm gentle breeze caressing the face of a woman who stands on the deck of her yacht wearing a stunning long dress in a shade of blue that is reminiscent of the sea. It is a fleeting but intense moment filled with nothing but harmony.”
