So what does it smell like? It was described as "rich and warm." I would imagine it was probably an oriental type perfume. I have no published notes on this composition. I would need a sample to tell you what it smells like.
Discontinued, date unknown.
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."
Harper's Bazzar, 1931:
"Miss Arden appears with a beautiful new perfume L'ELAN d'ELIZABETH "Tell me one English word that adequately defines '"L'Elan" won't you please?" I besought a lovely lady. "There is no one word, but this is what it means"— and she did a gay, whirlwind kind of dance."
Vassar Miscellany News, 1934:

The goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Elizabeth Arden company how much we miss the discontinued classics such as L'Elan d'Elizabeth and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back the perfume!
Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the perfume, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories), who knows, perhaps someone from the company might see it.
