My favorite fashion designer is Elie Saab. I can't say I'm an avid runway follower, but I always watch out for the Lebanese designer's new collections. Mr. Saab is the only one who I feel understands the female form, who knows our deepest desire to be beautiful. He doesn't come out with unrealistic clothes that no one outside of the catwalk or a pop concert would wear. Season after season, his dresses never fail to stun and amaze.
Sigh! I want to be rich enough to afford that $8,000 dress one day! For now though, I'm happy just having the Elie Saab Le Parfum, the designer's first foray into the world of fragrances.
The Le Parfum is in keeping with Mr. Saab's very strict aesthetics. The bottle has the same intricacy as his haute couture creations, and can even be considered a work of art with its many glimmering facets and elegant curves.
