Next to the name, each fragrance features a year crucial for Lalique history.

Élégance Animale 1989 depicts passion of Rene Lalique towards nature and animals. His passionate displays of nature inspired his son, Marc Lalique and granddaughter Marie-Claude Lalique to design the famous work The Zeila panther in 1989. This fragrance is powerful and full of character, and blends harmoniously flowers and fruit with leather undertones. The composition opens with saffron, geranium and peach, the heart continues with rose, jasmine and gurjum balsam on a base of leather and sandalwood. Elegance Animale was launched in 2014. The nose behind this fragrance is Cecile Matton.

Elegance Animale Fragrance Reviews


'Élégance Animale' opens with a refreshing juicy peach note, which is lightly decorated with bitter saffron and vegetal geranium. Here the mouthwatering stone fruit is lively and comforting upon initial application of the perfume, with saffron's dry, arid and earthy tones counterbalancing the succulence. The heart of the composition unfurls with a jammy rose, alongside an indolic jasmine and resinous gurjum balsam note. A deep radiating rose is perceptible, reminding me of endless rows of burgundy colored florist's roses lined up for purchase. Gurjum balsam's sweet yet peppery scent marries well with the aforementioned rose while jasmine's lightly floral essence dances in the background. 'Élégance Animale' concludes on an animalic base of leather and sandalwood. The suede-like leather note is superb, elegantly accompanying the rose and jasmine of the floral heart. It is one of the best leather-floral accords of recent memory.

As a unisex scent, 'Élégance Animale' leans somewhat feminine due to its hearty dose of rose included in the composition. The smokey leather base does however add a much needed masculine tone. In the end, I feel both men and women can enjoy use of this fragrance. Sillage, longevity and projection are all above average in this "eau de parfum" concentration. It is a robust fragrance not much unlike the over-the-top fashions of the 1980's, the era for which it is inspired. The fruity-floral facets of the perfume would be exquisite in the heat of summer, while the animalic-leathery base seems to pierce the cold air of winter. For these reasons, I feel 'Élégance Animale' can be worn successfully year-round. I would note, however that the robustness of the composition is best suited for evening/nighttime wearings. Like a lithe panther crouched and ready to pounce on its prey, 'Élégance Animale' is a sensually rich fragrance, the scent of which is certain to seduce that important person in your life.
