Fragrance and music blend together creating a one-of-a-kind aromatic melody
Dubai- UAE – October 2012: In an exclusive event hosted by Paris Gallery, the leading luxury retailer in the region, and an event that attracted huge numbers of music and perfume lovers alike, Ragheb Alama, the famous music star and TV icon made an appearance at Paris Gallery, Dubai Mall, on Wednesday, the 3rd of October, 2012, launching his very first NOTES D'AMOUR, a perfume for men, with ingredients chosen by the star himself.
The largest PG showroom in Dubai witnessed a gathering like never before as fans crowded to a rare opportunity to meet and interact with the superstar. The elegant and handsome Ragheb Alama, who showed up to cheering fans and curious onlookers, expressed his joy in seeing his fans and thanked them for their love and support.
Dubai, he said, is the city that he loves to visit whenever he had the time, as he has a great multicultural fan base in the country. Talking about his perfume, he promised that NOTES D'AMOUR is going to inspire them just as much as his songs do. He also said that he wanted his perfume to be a reflection of his own passion that he expresses through his songs, one that reflects his love and cultural pride. The launch was followed by time spent photographing, autographing and chatting with the excited lot.
Ragheb Alama is believed to have chosen the ingredients while it was being created in France, and the result is a spectacular combination of cedar wood, citrus, pine, musk, ambergris and jasmine, a sensual, melodious, and amorous composition. The top notes pervades with the mandarin fruit, giving the fragrance a sense of superiority, then flowing into a sparkle of jasmine rose for the tender touch, blending perfectly with the essence of precious musk for absolute elegance, ending in a base infused with cedar wood. This mixture makes NOTES D'AMOUR one of nature's treasures encased in luxurious transparent bottles reflecting its live green color.
It's worth mentioning that this is the first in a line of perfumes that Ragheb Alama is currently working on, with perfumes for women on the horizon.
