Ten years after the launch of the successful Le Parfum, couturier Elie Saab has once again teamed up with perfumer Francis Kurkdjian to create an extremely elegant new fragrance. The concept underlying Le Parfum Lumiere is an ode to light, to utter elegance, to glowing feminine grace.
Le Parfum Lumiere is an accord of the most precious essences. For each flower, fruit or wood, Francis Kurkdjian chose premium essential oils distilled using the most refined methods to ensure premium quality raw materials. The fragrances are thus born in India, Italy, Madagascar, South America, which creates an amazing melting pot of cultures and craftsmanship. Nuances of Italian mandarin oil blend with a hint of Madagascan ylang ylang oil, which unfolds little by little, like the sun’s rays at dawn.
Francis Kurkdjian, however, went one step further with his floral signature for LE PARFUM, pushing the boundaries of the chypre family to become a modern floral woody chypre.
As in all symphonies, the opening is subtle and surprising: nuances of Italian mandarin oil blend with a hint of Madagascan ylang ylang oil, which unfolds little by little, like the sun’s rays at dawn.
A seductive, compelling bouquet of Indian jasmine sambac absolute and tuberose follows, beating at the heart of the fragrance, tempered by orange blossom with the same delicate weave as fine embroidery dipped in liquid gold.
Finally, subtle echoes of musk, amberwood and patchouli heart entwine in a lingering but discreet Eastern trail. The result is a gentle but caressing perfume, feminine and floral yet with the surprising depth of a woody background.
