The One with Elie Saab Nuit Noor

Elie Saab’s newest fragrance is all about strong contrasts. Between darkness and light. Between roundness and opulence. And, to me, between sensuality and the concept of purity. It’s a marriage of the two. How they function together and thrive in harmony. Using notes of rose and wood, perfumer Francis Kurkdjian translates lightness and darkness with a nod to Oriental scents. The scent is available now at all leading retailers, and I highly recommend heading in and giving it a go!

In celebration of Elie Saab’s concept I took two sides of myself and attempted to capture them as best I could in image: the more grown & womanly side, and the lightness of a nurturing mother.

A special thank you to Reem of Five Five Fabulous for being behind the lens on this one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Representing Noor, the light aspect of the scent, is a tender bouquet reminiscent of sweetness and honey ending in the perfect creamy rose scent. To complement it Kurkdjian introduces ylang-ylang from Madagascar, giving your senses a metaphorical burst of sunlight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In stark contrasts to the airiness of the Noor notes, Nuit conjures night in stunning spice. Sizzling black pepper takes the light into dar – a perfect transition when coupled with the woodiness it embodies. To complement this the perfumer brings in Indonesian patchouli. A perfect end note to a scent that captures every aspect of a woman.
