Few days back, I attended a fun and interactive event for the launch of “The Merchant of Venice”, unique collections of fragrance at The Palace Hotel, Downtown Dubai.
The event was very interesting.We not only got a chance to explore the new fragrances but also we experienced a true art of perfumery by creating our own Olfactory Signature fragrance.
All the members of Media were divided in groups and we were trying to create oriental and floral fragrances with the different essential oils provided to us. The perfume makers explained to us how to create mesmerizing fragrances by carefully combining the right base, middle and top notes.
All fragrances by The Merchant of Venice belong to the ancient history and each of they are associated with wonderful tales from the past.
Mr. Marco Vidal,represent the fourth generation of a family business founded 116 years ago by their great-grandfather, Angelo Vidal, who was a germinal figure in the history of Italian Perfumery.
Mr. Marco Vidal took us through the history of their the perfume line. Merchant of Venice includes series of fragrances inspired by perfumery tradition of the Republic of Venice, its expertise in craftsmanship, and its century old trade with the Orient.
I got a chance to try The Merchant of Venice Byzantium Saffron, from the Murano Collection.
I was very impressed by the packaging of the fragrance. This fragrance consists of rare and precious ingredients which makes it very unique.
According to Greek mythology, saffron is central to the legend of young Crocus and Smilax. With the classic elegance of its amber notes, Byzantium Saffron embraces and enriches the passion of this ancient idyllic love. These notes, combined with Indonesian patchouli, make the perfume the olfactory passe-partout of those who love traveling in luxury to the most intriguing and exuberant lands.
