Elie Saab’s debut perfume has been receiving very positive reviews from bloggers who are much more reliable than me, and frankly you would probably be better off reading their reviews. These loud, syrupy jasmine/orange blossom fragrances are just not my thing. Elie Saab Le Parfum is the kind of high-pitched floral that I personally consider best left to blondes. That being said, I will admit that it is quite attractive for a loud, syrupy jasmine/orange blossom fragrance. The lasting power is superb, which will be a point in its favor for its fans. Elie Saab is somewhat similar to Thierry Mugler Alien, but it is more sophisticated (meaning that it smells less like grape soda). On the other hand, you have to weigh that against the fact that the Elie Saab bottle looks significantly less like a Klingon vessel than the Alien bottle does. This may be a positive or a negative for you, depending on your proximity to Nerdvana.
