Less heady than the original perfume, L’Eau Couture is also sweeter. At the top, magnolia’s lemony-rosy notes intertwine with bergamot. In the heart, the scent is dominated by an orange-blossom note that has had its ‘traditional honeyed facet’ pared away. The more oriental trail creates ‘an addictive aura’ that pairs vanilla with a luminous green-almond accord. Perfumer: Francis Kurkdjian, Takasago.
L’Eau Couture was designed to be an olfactory extension of Elie Saab’s 2014 ready-to-wear collection, with its fabric as light and airy as flower petals. The original fragrance has been reworked around a more luminous floral-almondy structure. The shape of the bottle is identical to the original, but this time in an almond-green hue.
