Elie Saab: L'eau Couture.


I was invited to the launching of Elie Saab's new perfume: L'eau Couture. The event was held at a beautiful penthouse and, just like Elie Saab's garments, it was a sophisticated, elegant yet simple atmosphere with emphasis on a lighter palette of colours, fluidity, light and reflections. It was seriously cool. 

Not only was the perfume presented, but also they flew in some of the latest couture and ready to wear pieces by Elie Saab to help exemplify how everything falls within the same idea, the colors, and the way light plays an important factor as a visual element. Everything is in-sync. And seeing couture gowns was quite cool, I've never seen anything so intricate in real life before. 

The perfume has scents of vanilla, citruses, green almond and, I'd venture to say, it's aimed towards a younger woman. It smells really good and I wouldn't mind if my non-existent girlfriend smelled liked that. Haha. The bottle itself is amazing and the visuals get even better when exposed to sunlight. Overall, this event was pretty cool and the ambient fitted the brand completely. Everything was perfect.

El evento sucedió en un penthouse muy bonito y, justo como las piezas de Elie Saab, fue una atmósfera sofisticada, elegante y simple con énfasis en una paleta de colores claros, fluidez, luz y reflejos. Estuvo súper padre.

No sólo el perfume fue presentado, también trajeron piezas de alta costura y ready to wear Prêt-à-Porter más recientes de la marca para ayudar a ejemplificar cómo todo funciona bajo la misma idea, mismos colores, y cómo la luz juega un factor importante como elemento visual. Todo está sintonía. Y ver trajes de alta costura estuvo muy padre, nunca había visto algo tan elaborado en la vida real.

El perfume tiene tintes de vainilla, cítricos, almendra verde y, me atrevo a decir, está dirigido hacia una mujer joven. Huele bastante bien y no me molestaría si mi novia no existente oliera así. Jaja. La botella por sí misma es increíble y la parte visual mejora cuando se expone a la luz del sol. En general, este evento estuvo buena onda y la ambientación encajó completamente con la marca. Todo estuvo perfecto.

I know this isn't an usual post and lacks a masculine touch but, hey, 
we have moms and sisters and girlfriends who wear perfume, don't we?

Love always,
