Arielle Shoshana Saturday was launched in 2017, created by Cecile Hua. A fruity floral, it has notes of passionfruit, rhubarb, peach, Mandarin orange, magnolia, saffron, pink pepper, iris, sandalwood, ambroxan, vanilla, musk and vetiver.
From the brand - "Perfumer Cécile Hua used a proprietary CO2 extraction technique to create the first natural passion fruit extract in perfumery history. Cécile’s gorgeous passion fruit material was already practically a perfume in itself, but the unexpected tang of saffron elevates Arielle Shoshana Saturday (previously known Arielle Shoshana Eau de Parfum) into a fragrance worthy of the Arielle Shoshana mission statement: “fragrances as interesting as you are.” Sandalwood, ambroxan, and vanilla give the drydown fullness and warmth."
Fragrantica - "It's effervescent and fizzy (the fruits really bring out the best in each other, e.g. tart rhubarb and passion fruit balances out sweet peaches). For some reason, I also get a bit of juicy blackcurrant, which is fantastic since it's a fruit that really hasn't been done justice (Looking at you, One Umbrella for Two by Floraiku)."
Fragrantica - "Saturday is such a captivating and vibrant fragrance that makes me feel uplifted, energized and chic all at the same time! The passionfruit and rhubarb in this are bold in the best sparkling way possible. This very well blended fragrance smells like nothing else in my collection. The dry down gives us soft woody floral creaminess, with the echoes of those punchy opening top notes of fruity goodness still there, which is how every fabulous Saturday should end."
Fragrantica - "I was surprised by this one. Tropical fruit w/ a wonderful vanilla base....the base makes it for me."
Fragrantica - "Although this perfume is compared to Byredo Pulp, I think it's juicier and more tart (in a good way). Pulp has an undercurrent of green bell pepper and is more of a blended fruit cocktail (which therefore smells more synthetic to me), so while it has a similar radiance, it's not as lovely and unique as Saturday."
