Untold Absolu By Elizabeth Arden: A Review

Sulty, Sexy, What to buy for your lover, fragrances, scents

Scent is the strongest sense tied to memory. When you get a whiff of something whether it be cookies, or french toast you’re instantly transport back somewhere else.

Not to put a lot of pressure on you, but there’s a lot to be said about the fragrance you choose, and each scent smells different on every person. 

Recently I had the opportunity to test drive Elizabeth Arden’s new scent “Untold Absolu“.  Every woman around the world is thriving in her life’s journey with a story waiting to be shared or kept. Inspired by the modern woman, UNTOLD Absolu is the second addition to the UNTOLD family.
I wanted UNTOLD to be a harmonious balance of the many facets of a woman, which, for me, is the source of genuine beauty. I imagined her sometimes adventurous, sometimes romantic, yet always equally confident. In creating UNTOLD ABSOLU I wanted to explore the more sensual side of her. I chose a deep ambery essence as the starting point to build this new story”. — Clement Gavarry, Perfumer
The UNTOLD woman is beautiful and sophisticated, daring and sexy, vibrant and intelligent, elegant and mysterious. Who doesn’t want to be all that?

Fragrance Notes by Facets: Like UNTOLD, each note of this fragrance captures a dimension of the UNTOLD woman. Two new facets, Glamorous and Captivating, were introduced to UNTOLD ABSOLU.
Glamorous: Bursts of Black Raspberry and Italian Bergamot capture her elegant presence.

Captivating: Intoxicating fruity accents of Red Plum and bright Ginger LMR* convey her magnetic allure.

Refined: Luxurious floral brushstrokes of Jasmine Egypt Absolute LMR1 and French Narcissus Absolute LMR* mirror her natural sophistication.

Mysterious: Sultry textures of Tahitian Vanilla Bourbon Absolute and deep Benzoin linger on the skin like her warm aura.

Sensual: Enveloping Cashmere Woods and rich, Brazilian Tonka Absolute echo her irresistible personality.
I’m usually very picky when it comes to fragrances, but I really liked this one. It definitely has an air of elegance and sophistication, but there is also something sulty and sweet that lingers in it too. There’s almost like a vanilla after scent (which is a a favorite scent among men just sayin’) that I really like. 
Can we for a second just appreciate the bottle? I’m such a sucker for this kind of stuff! I realize that it has nothing to do with the smell, but doesn’t it just beg to be on display? I mean what are fragrances for other than to elevate the your bathroom shelf or dressing table ? 
If you’re looking for a sexy sulty gift for your significant other (who has everything) I would totally suggest this fragrance. It’s really quite lovely. To learn more about this fragrance pop over to Elizabeth Arden, or click here.
