Elvis Jesus For Him And For Her Fragrances

These are the debut His and Her fragrances from the clothing brand Elvis Jesus.

Elvis Jesus For Her is presented in a heavy weight clear glass flacon adorned with the Brand’s iconic logo in rose coloured gold while For Him stands defiantly in a weather beaten clear glass flask branded with Elvis Jesus’ pewter coloured emblem.

Both fragrances lay hidden in their unique outer ‘book’ packaging – a nod to the origin of the Brand’s namesake. For Her is bound in smooth black with gold, whilst For Him lays in distressed brown with aged pewter, their script documenting the Brand’s history.

Elvis Jesus For Her EDT 50ml £39

A fragrance of contrasts, Elvis Jesus For Her opens with a fresh burst of uplifting Grapefruit, Cherry, Bergamot, Elemi and Peppermint blended with the woody backdrop of Nutmeg that develops into an innately feminine heart of Rose, Jasmine, Muguet and Cinnamon - evocative of a glamorous bygone era. The dry down envelops with a sensuous woody blend of Cedar, Courmarin, Amber, Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Leather. A Woody Floral scent that lingers to give an indelible impression.

Top notes - Grapefruit, Cherry, Bergamot, Elemi and Peppermint
Heart notes - Rose, Jasmine, Muguet and Cinnamon
Base notes - Cedar, Courmarin, Amber, Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Leather

My thoughts 

First of all I adore the packaging and bottles, so different. A perfect fit for the brand ethos.

This scent is really unusual and away from the norm of either fruity or floral fragrances. On my skin I detect the slight sweetness of the fruits but I struggle to detect any of the floral notes in the scent. I do however absolutely love the vanilla and tonka beans which on my skin are really prominent amongst the woody base notes and the warmth of the Cinnamon. 

Personally I feel this could appeal to either of the sexes.

Elvis Jesus For Him EDT 50ml £39

A masculine Earthy Citrus scent that opens with an explosion of Grapefruit, Orange and spicy Pink Pepper 
that prelude an earthy heart of Black Pepper, Patchouli and Geranium. The lingering masculine
notes of Cedar, Vetivert and sensual Woods leave a long lasting, seductive impact.

Top notes - Grapefruit, Orange and Pink Pepper
Heart notes - Black Pepper, Patchouli and Geranium
Base notes - Cedar, Vetivert and Woods

My thoughts

At first spray I wasn't sure about this at all as the citrus notes were quite stark but as it settled down I was  rewarded with a spicy and peppery scent with a backdrop of wood notes as it dried down. A definite masculine fragrance that improves as the day goes on. A rather appealing scent which is a bit different from what is already out there. Smells wonderful on my husband's skin.
