Elie Saab pays tribute to Haute Couture by launching La Collection des Essences, a high perfumery collection inspired by the magic world of haute couture. The internationally acclaimed Lebanese couturier invited French master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian to join him on this enchanting olfactory adventure.
The dialogue between these two artisans of the exceptional has given birth to La Collection des Essences, four perfume creations as sumptuous and luxurious as a haute couture gown: Rose, Gardenia, Amber and Oud. Elie Saab and Francis Kurkdjian selected some of the most exquisite ingredients to create this perfumed tribute to haute couture.
La Collection des Essences is available at Elie Saab boutiques in Geneva (Switzerland) and Paris, in Düsseldorf as well as at Harrods in London. Price: approximately 270 Swiss francs.

Elie Saab’s haute couture perfume Essence N° 2 Gardenia is a true olfactory trompe l’oeil, a blooming sculpture crafted from the duality between creamy wood tones and tendar floral notes, with exquisite green and white accents. Egyptian Sambac Jasmine brings a radiant floral infusion to a creamy heart of Iris Butter absolute. The sophisticated and elegant trail is revealed in a caress of rare and precious Indian Sandalwood.
