Dubai Encore: Not 1 but 3 mesmerizing additions to the sultry, smash-success East-meets-West Dubai collection.
When the initial 2015 trio of Dubai-centric eaux de parfum zoomed to immediate success, Bond No 9 unhesitatingly went ahead and devised not one but three additional Dubai scents. Set to debut in May— Dubai Citrine, Dubai Amber, and Dubai Amethyst continue the sensory exploration of the Gulf State emirate that itself has become a fantasy realm of excess.
The desert kingdom’s mirage-like, East-meets-West, over-the-top futurism was captured in the three original Dubai Emerald, Dubai Ruby and Dubai Indigo scents, introduced in 2015. This year’s Encore additions, marking the start of a full-fledged collection, share the same mold-breaking aesthetic that is redefining heady and exotic perfumery.
Dubai Encore scent is named for a precious gemstone, evoking the ancient belief that gems are perfumes transformed into gleaming solids.
Dubai Amethyst – is for males and females. It kicks off sumptuously with a pair of lush floral top notes—lily and rose leading to a heart of jasmine and vanilla with unexpected notes of patchouli and whiskey-like tobacco.
Dubai Amber – starts off with fresh, spring-like bergamot, blended with dusty, darker saffron, pulse-quickening pink pepper, and tangy raspberry. These give way to contrasts: delicate Bulgarian rose mingled with intoxicating jasmine, balsamic gurjun, and smoky Native American guaiac wood.
Dubai Citrine – the freshest, most feminine, and most effervescent of the three, starts off with citrusy bergamot, tangy red berries, fir balsam, and briny, pulse-quickening seaweed. These mellow down into a heart of lush magnolia, surrounded by lemony geranium, musky marigold, and delicate lily.
This newest trio of Dubai fragrances will launch in New York and globally May 2016
Suggested Retail Price: $550.00 – 100ml
