Jean Paul Gaultier's Classique Essence de Parfum, Dhs455
Jean Paul Gaultier has just released an olfactory offering, aptly titled Classique Essence de Parfum. After showcasing a feminine and rich Fall/Winter '16 collection during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, the eponymous label injected that femininity into its newest fragrance. With a bottle shaped in the brand's signature shape, the fragrance is made up of a blend of notes including ginger, orange blossom, vanilla and jasmine, resulting in a floral yet refreshing scent.
Alexander McQueen's McQueen Eau de Parfum, Dhs408
Alexander McQueen – who was recently announced as one of the nominees for best British Brand at the 2016 Fashion Awards – unveils its latest fragrance for women, and it's as sweet as it is seductive. Under the artistic direction of Creative Director Sarah Burton, the scent is inspired by strong floral signatures and is made up of jasmine, tuberose, ylang ylang, pink pepper and vetiver. Complete in a beautifully crafted pink bottle, McQueen's Eau de Parfum is the season's must-have.
