Galeries Lafayette Doha Launches first ever ‘Made in Qatar’ fragrance brand

Showcasing yet another local talent, Ali Bin Ali Holding’s Galeries Lafayette Doha has ceremoniously inaugurated the first boutique of fragrances by Abdulla Al Abdulla. This is the first ever ‘Made in Qatar’ fragrance brand launch in an international capacity.

On 3 December 2019, an exclusive influencer dinner was organized to introduce the luxury niche fragrance booth inside Galeries Lafayette Doha. The set-up and ambiance resonated with the sophisticated and scintillating persona of the newly launched fragrance brand.

An elaborate three-course candlelight dinner was followed by the creator explaining his journey about how he interprets fashion with a key Middle Eastern touch while allowing for a vast Western influence and flair.

Following the launch, on 5 December a special meet-and-greet session was organized at the fragrance boutique inside Galeries Lafayette Doha. Open to the public, the gathering allowed guests to experience and explore the very essence of Al Abdulla and his world of fragrance with empowering and sensual scents.

“It is indeed an honor to be able to showcase my fragrances at the luxury Parisian Department Store. I see fragrances as so much more than simply being a scent. It is a journey of scintillating scents that takes me down a nostalgic path of the past. Galeries Lafayette Doha’s chic clientele is the ideal audience for my empowering and sensual scents.”

The influencer and Qatari tastemaker makes his debut in the world of fragrances with the empowering and sensual scents of Dusk and Dawn that represent the very essence of Al Abdulla.

Dusk is intoxicating, sensual and irresistible with aromatic top notes of lemon, raspberry and saffron with a base of intoxicating amber, sweet vanilla and patchouli. Dawn is divergent, fresh and crisp with top notes of wormwood, smoky incense, pink pepper and cardamom with a base of ambergris, sandalwood, tobacco and musk.

The two scents were developed by the master of fragrance from the fragrance house of Jean Niel, which is one of the world’s oldest fragrance houses in Grasse (on the French Riviera), founded in 1779. The fragrances come in modern, daring and luxurious sphere-shaped bottles made of jet-black glass with an interplay of rose and white gold.
