It's rather fitting to feature this perfume, as Elle made its arrival on the market nearly 20 years ago in the Autumn of '97 designed by two renowned noses, Olivier Cresp and Jacques Cavallier, Elle brings joy with luminous crisp notes of lemon and litchi on peony petals. The Elle slim lined bottle has an interlaced monogram, cut from gold metal, highlighted by a beautiful, vibrant and luminous fuchsia making it unforgettable and eye catching. This is a vibrantly feminine and bold fragrance that has blends of woody and floral note running through.
Yves Saint Laurent Elle, is a youthful fragrance I feel but can be worn by women of all ages. It's distinctive but is not overwhelming, the day I received this I wore it to see how it worked with my body as fragrances can smell different on various people depending on how it works. It's strong on the first spray and it's got quite a long sillage and sits in a room for quite a while after being sprayed. Once it dies down, I smell more fruity floral as it begins to dry, it settles into a sweet almost powdery, fluffy musk with a slight underlying spice undertone. I can also smell why people say they can smell a blackcurrant. It's a dark feminine fragrance which is me for night, I like a dark, woody but that still carries a fruity, floral scent as during the day friends know I'm definitely fruity floral. I think it can be worn during the day but I would prefer it at night, for an event, a date, out with girlfriends - whatever. It's a modern, elegant, feminine fragrance it takes about 20 minutes for it to completely dry and give me it's overall scent for me, it doesn't change as the day goes on. The longevity I'd say it can last the workday which for me is a sufficient time. I'd certainly love to keep this in the collection.
