Edward Bess Eau La La

Lauren at the Edward Bess counter at Bergdorf Goodman, New York City, was kind enough to send me a small sample of the new Edward Bess fragrance, Eau La La ($125/0.25 oz.). The fragrance was inspired by Cafe Makeup’s favorite city in the world, Paris.

Edward Bess Eau La La is infused with frankincense, fresh gardenia, and amber. The scent is complex and harmonious. I love incense notes in fragrances. What is unusual about Eau La La is that the incense is filled with light and florals. The amber grounds the scent, which keeps the impression very sophisticated. The inspiration (click to enlarge):

Other incense fragrances can be a bit dark, and not particularly fitting for a social event or romantic evening. Unlike those, there is something a tiny bit sweet about Eau La La that is optimistic, warm, and beautiful. The scent remained balanced throughout the day, without an overly aggressive silage. Overall, this was a beautiful first step into fragrancy by Edward Bess. This is well worth obtaining a sample, or a spritz at your nearest counter.

 It’s available at Bergdorf Goodman (Lauren is so helpful!), Edward Bess online, and Sephora online. The image on Sephora shows a set with a purse container, a large crystal bottle for your makeup table, and a funnel to transfer:

  1. 125 bucks for a QUARTER OF AN OUNCE???!!!!! Get outta here. LOL.

    • That $125 gets you a limited edition crystal bottle (which is shown in the promo pics), a glass funnel, and a 1/4 of eau de parfume in a plain glass bottle which you have to decant into the crystal bottle. So, at this point in time, you’re paying for a collector’s bottle as well as the eau de parfume. Perhaps, EB will come out with a version of eau de parfume without all the extras.

  2. Hm…that’s cool that EB has expanded into fragrance and I can SEE the aesthetic appeal of the way he packaged the bottle, but the price for 1/4 an ounce is just ridiculous. :/
