Critically acclaimed UAE-based perfumer Amna Al Habtoor, founder of fine fragrance brand Arcadia, has launched the company’s latest fragrance collection, Edition 3, which pays homage to the UAE and underscores her love for the country.
Following the stand-out successes of her debut fragrances, the much-anticipated Edition 3 – The Tribute Edition, will feature three distinct notes, including oud, amber and musk, each dedicated to a time within the UAE. Devotion, the oud-based scent, is devoted to those who have been here from the start; Eternal, which is amber-based, is a nod to those who have come and gone; while Sincere, which includes notes of musk, is an ode to those who have just arrived.
Visitors to the venue will be transported on a journey through the UAE, depicting the lineage of the country and the contrast between life then, compared to life now while underscoring how we are all connected.
Speaking ahead of the event, owner and creator of Arcadia, Amna Al Habtoor, said: “I have a deep-rooted passion for the UAE; it is my home, my past, my present and my future. It represents everything close to my heart. “Through Edition 3, I have been able to convey many emotions using notes and scents that hold so many memories, whether of family or friends, both old and new. Edition 3 is my tribute to them.” In a first for Arcadia, to accompany the perfume range, which includes 100ml, 15ml and gift set options, the company has launched hair mists of each of the scents, while a limited-edition merchandise range including hoodies, totes and notepads will also be available. Bentley Emirates, the official dealer for the UAE market and official sponsor of the Arcadia – The Tribute edition event, will showcase a limited-edition model for the first time. The ‘Skyline’ collection, developed by Bentley’s Mulliner Program, features six limited edition models that pay homage to the UAE, with design cues inspired by the traditional and futuristic skylines of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. To celebrate the unique model and what it represents, Bentley will be unveiling the Flying Spur W12, Dubai Skyline Edition. With the ‘Skyline’ edition, Bentley has created a car that serves as a timeless reminder of the UAE’s tradition, culture, vision and way of life.
