Billed as a women’s fragrance, the newly launched elixir was created by perfumers Aurelien Guichard and Jérôme di Marino. The amber-floral fragrance features top notes of neroli from Lebanon and Italian mandarin, middle notes of iris flower, and base notes of amberwood, myrrh and benzoin.

Designed to capture “sensuality” in olfactory form, according to the brand, the “intoxicating floral scent” also boasts elements of warm vanilla and musk.

What we say: This new fragrance release from Elie Saab has a nearly universal appeal thanks to its mix of soft florals and sweeter notes.

Our tester found the sweeter elements of amber and musk played most prominently on her skin. The long-wearing scent has a seasonless appeal, she reports, providing a pretty, warm-floral mix that’s perfect for day- or nightwear, all year round.
