Edward Bess Eau La La ~ new fragrance

Cosmetics and skincare line Edward Bess has launched Eau La La, a new fragrance for women:

Pure stillness along the shore ensconced in a mosaic of exotic flowers at the height of their bloom. A warm island breeze enveloped with fresh Hawaiian gardenia accented by Italian bergamot and kissed with vanilla musk transcends to a place of perfection.

This breathtaking blend brings you into a moment that is sensual and unexpected.

Eau La La will be sold as a set (crystal cube bottle, travel bottle, and glass funnel) and only the travel bottle will arrive to the customer filled and she can then transfer the fragrance between the travel bottle and crystal cube bottle as she pleases.

 Additional notes include frankincense and amber.

Edward Bess Eau La La is available now for pre-order at Neiman Marcus, $125 for 7 ml, concentration unknown.

    Gardenia seems to becoming the “pink pepper” of the moment.

  2. FragrantWitch says:

    Seems a bit steep…his cosmetics are as well though. And very very nice so there may be hope!

    • Robin says:

      I am assuming it’s either a) extrait concentration or b) a perfume oil? But yes, does seem steep all the same.

  3. Omega says:

    Eau La La? The name alone makes me want to pass on this one. And I thought grapefruit was the new pink pepper?:)

    • Robin says:

      Oh, I thought it was sort of cute! Somebody must have used it before though, in fact it sounds familiar.

      • pyramus says:

        I don’t think anybody ever did “Eau La La” before, although Azzaro did Ohlala, and there have been lots of scents playing on O/Eau, such as Oh! De London and O de Lancôme.

  4. maggiecat says:

    The notes sound lovely, but that much money for 7 mls??? Not for me…

    • Robin says:

      I don’t know enough about his consumer base…no idea if they’ll think it’s high or not!

  5. mutzi says:

    I could be in love based on the notes. And considering I bought Trompeur this year, this may qualify as reasonable. I’ll just slip it on the old “what I want for Christmas” list and see what happens.

  6. Lucy says:

    I want to have a picnic right where that bottle is sitting.

  7. pigoletto says:

    Well, he does quality makeup, so I’d be curious to sniff this. Also, price wise, it doesn’t seem outrageous for a 7.5 ml assuming it’s a extrait/oil type formula. Remember the Jalaines in the same style bottle years ago? Those were more expensive, and several years ago as well. I think that was when niche started to explode and the prices began to skyrocket.

  8. Nile Goddess says:

    Love the name – did no one think of it before?

    That being said, the bottle looks Gucci-ish, and their sense of scent is at odds with their sense of geography. Hawaiian breeze from Paris?

    Considering the pretentious holiday description, I would expect this as a customized fragrance in a boutique hotel. With matching freebies in the bathroom.

  9. SmokeyToes says:

    This seems steep for the mls-and it seems a new incarnation of Chanel No 22, white florals over an incense base?

    I would love to try it anyway but I wish Edward would have come up with something a bit more unique. The rest of his line is so very luxurious and refined this doesn’t quite fit his ‘brand’ image.
