What Does 17/17 - Elle Smell Like
As you approach 17/17 - Elle by XerJoff, an initial greeting of lily of the valley mingles with neroli and a hint of zesty bergamot, complemented by the undercurrent of galbanum. This aromatic blend conjures the image of a blooming garden on a bright, sunny day. Moving deeper into the scent, a floral heart unfolds. The fragrance of iris and jasmine take center stage, partnered with the rich scent of birch, cedar, and a subtle touch of leather. The woodsiness intertwines with the floral notes, giving a sense of walking through a forest adorned with ylang-ylang, roses, and a faint trail of patchouli. It feels like a serene journey from a blossoming garden into a lush, fragrant woodland. As the fragrance evolves, the base reveals a sweet and creamy ending. A blend of musk and vanilla gives a comforting feel, subtly underscored by the warm tone of amber and a subtle sweetness of coumarin. This sweet and creamy finale, combined with the earlier floral and fruity tones, delivers an overall sense of a feminine, comforting, and aromatic journey from start to finish.
Review of 17/17 - Elle
17/17 - Elle by XerJoff is a perfume that seems to have been crafted with a keen appreciation for the diverse nature of femininity. This fragrance, released in 2007, primarily appeals to women, with its most significant charm lying in its floral and sweet scent profile. It is a perfume that leans more towards the mature palette yet does not alienate the younger audience, making it a versatile addition to any woman's collection.
The perfume opens with a soft and inviting note of lily of the valley, setting the stage for the symphony of scent that unfolds. It then effortlessly transitions into a heart filled with the warmth of jasmine, iris, and a hint of leather, creating a beautiful complexity that's neither overpowering nor understated. The base notes of musk, vanilla, and amber add a layer of richness that grounds the perfume, giving it a lasting impression.
This scent feels more at home during the vibrant months of Spring and the cooler days of Fall, making it a fantastic choice for transitional seasons. With a longevity that will see you through most of the day, it's a perfume that will keep up with you, from a busy workday to a night out with friends. However, the sillage is slightly modest, which means it may not project as well in larger open spaces.
While Elle by XerJoff is a delightful fragrance, it comes with a somewhat hefty price tag. It might not be the best choice for those looking for budget-friendly options. Nevertheless, if you value quality and unique scent profiles, Elle is a reliable fragrance that carries a certain sense of elegance and sophistication.
