Looking for a new scent to take you from the cooler days of autumn into the full blown chill of winter? Then may I suggest the utterly divine Lady Emblem Elixir EDP by Montblanc.
In this scent, rose absolute has been given a more robust personality than the brands previous scent, Lady Emblem. I’d best describe it as a woody floral with a slight powdery dry down.
The press release for Lady Emblem Elixir rather poetically sums up what kind of woman this fragrance will resonate with:
Perfumery is a question of nuances, variations and subtlety.
First we met with Lady Emblem, a free and piercing woman, magnificent.
For many it was love at first sight. Today we introduce her in a new light.
Her gaze is naturally the same: direct, intense, almost overwhelming. And her only jewellery is still her pink gold and diamond earrings.
Her dress is simple and chic, her hair swept up with a little rebellious twist. You can picture her preparing for a decisive encounter, or stepping up to a rostrum, expressing herself with calm and passion in equal measure.
So what has changed? Time, for sure. And perhaps her mood…
Her determination inspires respect and allegiance…
Does the above describe you? If so, you really need to take a whiff of this scent.
With top notes of pepper, litchi and mandarin, on first spritz, you get a fresh, somewhat fruity vibe that’s not too sweet, and just a little green and lush (which I love). As the scent develops, beautiful, radiant notes of Damask rose absolute, jasmine, iris and orange blossom gives it a very elegant feel.
The base notes, made up of charismatic patchouli, sandalwood and vanilla, give this fragrance a slightly woody personality that works incredibly well with the rose accord. Black peppercorn – strong, intense and intriguing – adds an unusual, but exciting twist to the composition.
The breathtakingly beautiful falcon is inspired by the 43-faceted cut of the Montblanc diamond with it’s six-valley design, and is partially coated with a metallic rose gold dip.
I’d describe this fragrance as feminine, delicate and very easy to wear for day or evening. A great option if you’re in the market for a new scent.
