Out Today! Elle 2012 Limited Edition Fragrance (Review)

Elle 2012 Limited Edition fragrance hits the shelves this morning!

Sensual and refreshing, the fragrance of elle 2012 Limited Edition opens on a transparent veil of peony, heightened by sparkling notes of grapefruit before allowing sambac jasmine to invade the heart, impelled by the spicy savour of pink pepper berries. At the twilight of scents, the vibrant presence of vetiver and the warmth of benzoin blended with amber become irresistibly addictive.

I’m a fan of the original Elle fragrance so I was delighted to have the opportunity to try the 2012 Limited Edition version. I have the most unsophisticated nose on the planet. I would do an evening course on fragrance appreciation if such a thing existed in Ireland! I operate on two levels… it smells pretty …. it smells ick. Very articulate.

I’m going all out today –  this perfume smells absolutely beautiful! It’s light and floral (in the youthful sense) thanks to the peony and grapefruit but with a peppery undercurrent. If amber features in a fragrance, I’m in. It gives a lovely warmth to the delicate top notes.

It is an eau de toilette but I find it lasts quite well on my skin. As far as when to wear this one, I feel that it’s suitable for day or night wear – it’s light enough for the daytime but warm and sensuous enough for night.

It costs €45.00 for 90ml at YSL counters and fragrance outlets.

Perfume addicts, noses at the ready! Let me know what you think once you have a smell!
