Le Reve d'Elizabeth by Elizabeth Arden c1927

Le Reve 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, L'Amour 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 classified as a heavy oriental fragrance for women. It was described as a warm, heavy, winter scent, good for furs. I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.
