Rose Couture EDT, 90ml
by Elie Saab
A homage to all things floral is what characterises this overtly feminine fragrance. Created for the designer by renowned perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, it’s the bold use of rose and white flowers such as jasmine that give it real softness. If you fear it’s too pretty – don’t. Happily it’s grounded with velvety patchouli and sandalwood, which give it an earthiness.
A light perfume I wore all day without any change in the overall powerfulness of the scent. Bringing images of summer, sunshine and rosé wine with friends, I thought this was a great daytime perfume.
