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!

without comments

This year saw the launch of the first fragrance by Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab, known for his couture gowns. Elie Saab Le Parfum was a huge sales success at Harrods in London, where it was available exclusively earlier this year, and has now been rolled out to other locations globally including duty-free shops.

Working with retailer Dubai Duty Free, supplier BPI has created an Elie Saab lounge at Dubai International airport terminal 3 to offer passengers the chance to experience the scent in luxury surroundings. The 24sq m lounge was specially designed for the location and also features the ad visuals promoting the fragrance launch.

See below for a rendering of what the lounge looks like. The Elie Saab space will be available until September 21.
