L'Amour d'Elizabeth by Elizabeth Arden c1929

L'Amour d'Elizabeth by Elizabeth Arden: launched in 1927. This perfume was one of four other signature scents launched that year (La Joie d'Elizabeth, Le Jardin d'Elizabeth, Le Réve d'Elizabeth, L'Etoile d'Elizabeth) and only sold in the Elizabeth Arden salons throughout the world.


Fragrance Composition:


So what does it smell like? It is described as "heady" and "warm and rich." I would assume it may be a heavy floral oriental fragrance for women, but I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.


Ladies Home Journal, 1927:
"Mon Amie Elizabeth- the perfect gift of a friend to a friend. L’Amour d’Elizabeth - the glory of love in fragrance. Le Reve d’Elizabeth - the perfume of dreams. La Joie d’Elizabeth - the joyous ardor of love."

Home Journal, 1929:
"La Joie d'Elizabeth/Le Reve d'Elizabeth/Mon Amie Elizabeth / L'Amour d'Elizabeth These four perfumes — creations of Elizabeth Arden — are being introduced in Elizabeth Arden Salons throughout the world."

The Amarillo Globe Times, 1929:
"L'Amour d'Elizabeth - this fragrance is dedicated to the greatest of human emotions, is as warm and rich and satisfying as the name implies. It gives an aura of romance to the woman who uses it."

Harper's Bazaar, 1930:
"Elizabeth Arden's enchanting scent L'Amour d'Elizabeth may be had in this charming bottle with an atomizer attachment."

Arts & Decoration, Volumes 41-42, 1934:
"L 'Amour Perfume for sheer inducement."

 Vassar Miscellany News, 1934:
"LUCKEY'S PERFUME BAR ATTRACTS Many each day to its distinctive display of Elizabeth Arden Perfumes. We have these choice preparations: Le Reve D'Elizabeth —an elusive odor of dream-like charm: perfect for furs. La Joie D'Elizabeth —Happiness captured in fragrance L'Elan D'Elizabeth —Rich, warm and irresistible. Tuberose —The true odor of the flower itself. These fragrances are reserved for those who are sensitive to perfection in perfumes. They are priced at $1.00 a dram."

DC & I, 1935:
"ELIZABETH ARDEN brings out her charming "Perfume Trio" set, — one dram size bottles of three of her delightful perfumes, Blue Grass, L'Amour d'Elizabeth, and La Joie d'Elizabeth, all packed in a lovely white and silver box. These dram size bottles are priced at $1 each.."


Bottles:

L'Amour d'Elizabeth was presented in the standard square crystal bottle with the cube shaped ground glass stopper. Instead of a paper label, the perfume's name was enameled in black serigraphy on the glass.




Fate of the Fragrance:


L'Amour d'Elizabeth was still being sold in 1940, when it was discontinued due to wartime importation difficulties in getting the necessary ingredients from France.
