House of DKNY Coffret

without comments

Miniature perfume sets are a common fixture in duty-free shops around the world, and new ones come out every now and again to refreh the range. The latest addition is the House of DKNY Coffret, a travel-exclusive set containing four miniature fragrances: Be Delicious edp 7ml, Be Delicious Fresh Blossom edp 7ml, PureDKNY Verbena 7ml and the original DKNY Woman edt 4ml.

DKNY Woman comes in a skyscraper-inspired bottle while the two Be Delicious fragrances feature the iconic apple-shaped flacon. Finally, PureDKNY Verbena features a hybrid verbena-basil note and is one of the brand’s latest launches, created in partnership with charity organisation CARE.

This cute set comes in a cityscape packaging and will be available from February at duty-free locations worldwide.

DKNY Golden Delicious Holiday Set

with one comment

The DKNY Golden Delicious Holiday Set is another of the many Christmas offerings in duty-free. This travel set contains a 50ml bottle of the Golden Delicious edp and a 100ml tube of the matching body lotion, and it comes in a cute box decorated with golden apples.

I am a fan of the scent since first trying it – it’s a warmer, spicier version of the original DKNY Be Delicious perfume, without the fruitiness of the original and with top notes of orange flower water, sparkling mirabelle and a signature Golden Delicious apple, as well as white rose, vanilla orchid, musk and teakwood. And the bottle is a more elegant and “grown-up” version of the original’s apple-shaped flacon, with a golden lid to match the juice.

The set is available worldwide at selected travel-retail locations. For example, at Iceland’s Keflavik airport you can find the set for around $60.

DKNY Million Dollar fragrance bottle

without comments

Bling alert! Estée Lauder has partnered with celebrity jeweller Martin Katz to create a one-of-a-kind bejewelled bottle of its DKNY Golden Delicious fragrance, and discrete it ain’t. The handmade DKNY Million Dollar fragrance bottle is made of 18ct yellow gold with a rock crystal base, adorned with 2,000 stones sourced from all over the world including emeralds from Colombia, rubies and sapphires from Asia and precious stones from Brazil.

This is what bottle designer Katz had to say:

It was a privilege to design the Million Dollar DKNY fragrance bottle. Much like building a fragrance, my design started from a foundation. The Golden Delicious fragrance exemplifies the spirit and energy of New York so my bottle design needed to reflect this as well. I began the design process by handpicking unique stones from around the world to create the NYC skyline. The finished result was the most exquisite fragrance bottle in existence.

What is the link with duty-free, you might be asking? The unique bottle will be touring the world, stopping at events and fragrance stores in the US, Middle East, Asia and Europe, and the current stop is Dubai International airport terminal 3 (until October 15). If you’re passing through the terminal in the next few days, don’t forget to check it out!

DKNY Be Delicious Franchise Coffret

without comments

Sets of perfume miniatures are a popular duty-free purchase, so it’s no surprise that Estée Lauder has produced this DKNY Be Delicious Franchise Coffret. It contains four 7ml minis: Be Delicious edp and Be Delicious Fresh Blossom edp, Be Delicious edt and the new Golden Delicious edp (which I personally love).

If you’re a fan of the Be Delicious franchise, this is an interesting product, particulaly if you travel a lot. If you are not familiar with the scents, or would like to give someone a nice gift, this could be an ideal “tasting” package to check whether they are your cup of tea or not.

DKNY Be Delicious Franchise Coffret is already available at travel-retail locations around the world. It is, of course, exclusive to duty-free.

PS: Do you like my new watermark? It goes well with the new layout, don’t you think? ;)
