Is This New Fragrance an Affordable Dupe for a $440 Cult Perfume?

Fact: Since we launched this $145 fragrance at Adore Beauty a few weeks ago, it has sold out four times.

That fragrance is who is elijah HIS | HER 100ML and people are saying (me, it's me) that it might just be an affordable dupe for a $440 cult fragrance.

In other words, you're going to want to get it on you ASAP.

So, let's cut right the chase because this is a matter of urgency. Here's everything you need to know about who is elijah and my His | Her review.

But First... Who Is Elijah?

Who is elijah is a unisex Aussie fragrance brand that makes small batches of four chic, completely gender-neutral scents anyone can wear.

Those scents are:

The brand is vegan, cruelty-free and made with ethically conscious ingredients, and each who is elijah perfume is hand made, bottled and packaged in Sydney.

Bonus: Who is elijah perfumes are affordable, with 10ml travel vials from $35, 50ml from $115 and 100ml from $145.

Now, onto THE fragrance that keeps selling out.

Who Is Elijah HIS HER Review.

Let's start with the description of who is elijah HIS | HER 100ML, because I reckon it's pretty spot on:

"A sweet, spicy and fresh scent that inspires only the sweetest nostalgia, with notes of bergamot, violet leaf, florals, fir needle and musk. A fragrant tribute to the exhilaration of first times."

The combination of head notes (what you smell first), heart notes (what you smell after 20-60 minutes) and base notes (what you smell hours later) makes this fragrance the perfect balance of sweet, spicy and fresh.

  • Head notes: Comforting and clean bergamot, violet leaf and cardamom.

  • Heart notes: Soft florals and fir needle for a touch of greenery.

  • Base notes: Warm and woodsy sandalwood, cashmere, musk, amber and oudh.

Here's a little video of me trying to sum up this indescribable scent.

If I had to write a dating app bio for this fragrance, it'd be: Only showers with premium body oil. Enjoys hiking in the woods. Flowers and chocolate advised.

It's a little bit sultry and sensual, but still very clean, fresh and woodsy. It's also an EDP (eau de parfum), a more highly-concentrated fragrance that holds throughout the day without the need to reapply.

But here's the thing: Every time I've worn who is elijah His | Her, someone has come up to me and asked if I'm wearing Le Labo Santal 33. As in, the cult luxury fragrance with a $440 price tag.

So, is this an affordable dupe?

I'm not *wink* saying that *wink* but it is a very, very lovely fragrance.

P.S. The best part about purchasing a fragrance like this one from Adore Beauty's The Scent Room, is that every full-size purchase comes with a free sample vial so you can try it before opening the bottle. If it's not love at first smell (or you're not into it after wearing it for a few days), you can send it back unopened for a refund.
