The Essences of Eid

Housing a vast collection of niche perfumes, Paris Gallery is making this Eid extra special with luxurious essences to envelop you and your loved ones.

This selection of exclusive fragrances from niche perfume brands will awaken your senses and set you apart from the crowd.

Kilian ‘Pearl Oud’

For each of KILIAN’s six boutiques around the world, a signature scent has been created as an olfactive embodiment of the store’s location. Pearl Oud was created for the opening of the Kilian boutique in The Pearl Mall in Doha. This exclusive scent is an homage to Doha, its ancestral culture of the pearl and its magnificent mall where Kilian opened his first boutique in Qatar. The fragrance opens with a cocktail of spices: saffron and black pepper. The exotic scent of Ylang Ylang gives to the fragrance a warm opening. The heart is a rich and opulent floral bouquet: jasmine absolute from India, rose absolute from Turkey, essence of rose of May from France and iris absolute from Italy.  The fragrance then evolves into an intense, animalistic composition thanks to the oud from India and the castoreum, giving the fragrance a very unique personality.

Pearl Oud along with the other five Kilian Boutique Exclusives will be available exclusively at selected Paris Gallery stores for a limited time only during the month of September, therefore making it one of the ultimate Eid gifts for anyone that appreciates fine perfumery and rare opportunities.

Roja Parfums ‘Amber Aoud’

Oriental – Rich & Soft: Sweet, Spicy, Warm, Sensual

“Many of the Gum Resins which have been used in perfumery for millennia originate from the Middle East. I took these materials and blended them with the exotic note of Aoud to create a scent which is both soft and sensual”. Roja Dove

Lime, Lemon, and Bergamot mingle with a sensual blend of Jasmine, Rose, and Ylang Ylang, which is warmed by the spicy notes of Saffron, and Cinnamon, which swirl around a succulent note of fig which adds richness to an opulent base of Oakmoss, Patchouli, and leather-like Birch, which are underscored by a blend of some of the most costly of all perfumery materials, as Sandal and Aoud Woods are softened by Orris, Civet, Musk, and Ambergris.

Annick Goutal ‘Ambre Sauvage’

Every Amber holds a secret. A composition sacred to the perfumer, Amber is not an ingredient that is harvested but a material that takes shape in our imagination. Inscribed in the oldest legends and in the collective unconscious, Amber is one of the most sensual accords in perfumery. It was our perfumers’ desire to place their delicate Amber on a flying carpet. To see it take flight, they chose pink peppercorns and lavender for their icy, bursting effects. Then, with the carpet raised to the sky, they brushed it in both directions: the soft, refined texture of the velour with the iris and vanilla. Next, the fabric brushed against the nap, with the slightly rough texture of dark woods, styrax, and the camphorous vapours of patchouli. This Amber is rife with contrasts, as delicate as it is wild, and you will be eager to discover its many facets on the skin.

Sospiro ‘Ouverture’

Ouverture opens up to create the right mood and set the stage for a glamorous and exciting day. The perfume unveils a fresh, light and crisp creation, a wonderfully uplifting blend. Like the opening of a new story, the sophisticated blend of Ouverture starts with an elegant combination of white flowers, Mediterranean citrus and fresh fig leaves. This is followed by floral notes of Indian Jasmine with a touch spices. The base rounds out with the complexity of Sandalwood, Cashmere notes and incense.

Price: AED 1,643 (100ml)

Byredo ‘Black Saffron’

Black Saffron is an oriental composition opening with the bright citrus notes of the Asian pomelo and crisp Juniper Berries, mellowing into golden silage by Kashmiri Saffron. At the heart lies Black Violet fused with a Leather Accord; their dark, dry composition born aloft by the delicate transparency of Cristal Rose. At the base, Blond Woods add radiant warmth and harmony, punctuated by staccatoed flashes of luscious raspberry. The journey concludes with the gentle, earthy evocations of Haitian Vetiver.

Price: AED 610 (50ml)

Blend Oud ‘Hour’

Hour is the epitome of pure sophistication but preserves a naughty elegant aura. The symphony begins with citrus, followed by a rare pineapple note with a delicate sweetness that rounds out the welcome. A complex sequence of floral spicy notes of jasmine, iris and pink pepper are found in the heart. Finally, rounded off with a warm, embracing blend of patchouli, ambergris, musk and vanilla, and provide the final respectful bow to this unusual fragrance.

Price: AED 922 (75ml)

Nasamat ‘Oud Bouquet’

A blend of eastern and western fragrant oils, housed in an elegantly designed flacon.
