Elle by Yves Saint Laurent is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. Elle was launched in 2007. Elle was created by Jacques Cavallier and Olivier Cresp. Top notes are Litchi, Peony and Amalfi Lemon; middle notes are Pink Pepper, Rose, Jasmine and Freesia; base notes are Patchouli, Vetiver, Cedar and Ambrette (Musk Mallow).
The face of the fragrance is young and extravagant 18-year-old Coco Rocha. The advertising campaign, as well as the bottle design, can say a lot about the perfume: it is a young, but pretentious fragrance within the frame of the “modern classic.”
