Esprit d’Oscar.

As I have said very many times, I am so not a big fan of fragrance. When one surprises me , like this new one from Oscar de la Renta, I have to share my thoughts.

Esprit d’Oscar is Oscar de la Renta’s newest fragrance. It features fresh florals like Egyptian jasmine, orange flower and tuberose spiked with bright citrus and warm notes of musk and heliotrope. It is beautiful flowery oriental scent which is a modern take on his signature scent OSCAR.

To capture the essence of what a woman desires in her fragrance, Oscar turned to his daughter Eliza to help create Esprit d'Oscar.  Esprit d'Oscar opens with a distinct sparkle, realized through a bright, citrus bouquet of Sicilian lemon, bergamot and citron. At its heart remain fresh florals: Egyptian jasmine, orange flower and tuberose. A combination of musk, heliotrope, tonka bean and vetiver give Esprit d'Oscar a warm, long-lasting base.

Inspired by the original Oscar Parfum bottle design, Oscar envisioned a package for Esprit d'Oscar that would marry the feel of the iconic original, with a fresh contemporary look. Sculptural glass and sleek feminine contours characterize the Esprit d'Oscar bottle. On top of its translucent flower cap, a glass pearl represents a single dewdrop, a symbol from the original Oscar story.  When he was a boy, Oscar de la Renta imagined that if he woke up very early, he could take the dew from flowers to create a perfume…and so he did. It is beautiful, isn't it?

Esprit d'Oscar is available in two sizes - a 3.3 oz. Eau de Parfum SPray for $98.00 and a 1.6 oz. Eau de Parfum SPary for $78.00. You can find it at fine department stores such as Nordstrom.
