Elie Saabs scent keeps it light (Celebrities news headlines)

Elie Saab's scent keeps it light
Vancouver Sun reported

Lebanese couturier Elie Saab has been creating ethereal gowns and memorable dresses for his devoted clientele (he sells more couture gowns than any other couture house) as well as Hollywood celebrities for the past 25 years. Who can forget the sheer-bodiced, burgundy gown with floral applique worn by Halle Berry in 2002 when she accepted her leading actress Oscar? Or more recently, the whisper-soft, lilac lace dress Mila Kunis wore to this year’s Oscars?

The Beirut-based designer is adding a beauty component with his first fragrance, called simply Elie Saab Le Parfum (out in September). The scent was created by famed perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, whose other notable creations include Jean Paul Gaultier’s Le Male, Narciso Rodriguez’s For Her as well as his eponymous collection of men’s and women’s fragrances, candles and home scents.

For Saab’s first scent, Kurkdjian knew it was something he had to get absolutely right. "I had an intuition that it would change something within the fragrance market, or maybe something in my career," said Kurkdjian, sitting in a light-filled suite at the Sunset Tower Hotel recently. "This scent sums up what I think about femininity. It’s beautiful, approachable and easy to understand."
