I have a special relationship with the EMIL ÉLISE brand, because I was invited to the Fragrance Tasting Event in Hamburg last November to experience the launch of the collection. There have been six fragrances so far from the young fragrance label founded in 2022, and I have presented all of them to you. So now comes the seventh fragrance, which bears the seductive name Melting Lust.
Melting lust should be a creation that perfectly continues the extravagant, daring and sometimes provocative campaign of the previous collection. The Fragrance Tasting Event was already an experience, so I’m compiling all my posts on the brand again below, in which I present both the fragrance tasting in Hamburg and the Eaux de Parfum themselves:
- Emil Élise up close – Fragrance Tasting Event in Hamburg
- hangover meditation and dancing on goosebumps by Emil Élise
- going bang and eating wherever by Emil Élise – grapefruits and white flowers
- bathing in a daydream and painting it sweet by Emil Élise – sweet seduction
Melting Lust – Sweet Cherry Seduction
With Melting Lust, EMIL ÉLISE jumps on the current trend train of cherry fragrances, because – as the visuals already reveal – the creation revolves around the deep red stone fruit, and – at least figuratively – in a rather lewd way. Here a woman tongues with a pair of cocktail cherries, there presumably the same holds a single specimen of the delicious little fruit boldly in front of her crotch, marginally dressed in red tights and shiny red panties. 🍒
Firmly united, our hearts beat in unison. Deeply immersed in lustful cherry. A touch of rum. Strong amber and musk. Our movements slower and slower. And slower. No more ups and downs. No you and me. Am I still here? Or are we already? Melt away in lust! Unlike Anyone.
The fragrance notes of EMIL ÉLISE eau de parfum are cherry, rum, benzoin resin, elemi resin, rose, Peru balsam, lavender, guaiac wood, patchouli, musk, amber and moss, which definitely sounds like a delicious and intoxicating composition.
Melt away in cherry
Tipsy cherries characterize the opening of Melting Lust. The liqueur-like, boozy notes of cherries soaked in rum meet creamy-sweet benzoin resin and the woodsy freshness of elemi resin, giving the fragrance depth and intensity. The rose adds softly soapy and airy floral accents, while the lavender provides herbaceous nuances. Still at the centre of the creation is the cherry, whose buzz seems to have subsided in the meantime, now surrendering more to the herbaceous-woody and spicy facets of the composition.
Delicate powdery clouds of smoke from guaiac wood permeate the fragrance, accompanied by the earthy creamy woody notes of patchouli. They soothe the perky cherry, take away its initial pronounced sweetness, give it a certain transparency and lightness without compromising its substance and durability. With fruity-powdery and mossy-creamy nuances, Melting Lust fades out very slowly.
Melting Lust is cherry at its best. A wonderfully composed fruit scent that implements the currently almost inevitable theme of cherry in a really beautiful and unused way and gives the delicious stone fruit its very own delicious facets. I particularly like the fact that although the creation has a certain sweetness, it is excellently kept in check by the fragrance notes involved. Thus, Melting Lust does not appear sugary sweet or squeaky artificial, but reveals a very authentic and finely balanced cherry fruitiness that varies within the fragrance progression: initially seductively boozy, then floral-herbaceous, later smoky-woody and in the finish earthy-creamy with powdery undertones.
One thing is clear: Melting Lust is delicious. This creation is a must-try for all fans of the red stone fruit, and for all who love excitingly composed and balanced fruit scents as well. Rather something for cooler days – like today – but suitable for any occasion. My recommendation: Order and enjoy! 🍒🤤
