quintessence 2017


The very special and beautiful "fragrant island" was built this year in the heart of the Sheikh Saeed Hall 1 of the Beauty World Middle East exhibition to celebrate niche perfumes coming from different parts of the world made in different styles.

The designers with show manager Elaine O'Connell.


Three young and very creative designers, Louis Gerin, Gregory Lamaud and Marion Espiau who design for the main organizer Messe Frankfurt, showed off their talent by creating the minimalistic but atractive Quintessence stands where all the brands we mentioned in the announcement of the show presented their lovely creations.
 


At the center of the perfume oasis, some lush greenery above one special booth was placed where glass jars were showcased with tissues inside scented with the perfumes of the showcasing brands. There were also jars filled with flowers, greenery, spices and coffee, discretely showing the diversity of ingredients and their natural look.

So, lets start our walk and enjoy the QUINTESSENCE 2017 celebrating the beauty of the fragrances, the lovely flacons, and the progress and gain of each brand in creating and offering the best product in their own style, based on their own experience, the landscape from their region or pure imagination.

 


 

COQUILLETE

COQUILLETE presented the newest line Collection No 7. which we talked about earlier this year. Ambrosia, Camelia 3.2, Cookiecrunch, Mirabillis, Navy Rum, Rosa Muscosa, Supergreen and Tourbiere were showcased in the black plush flacons of the Coquillete style and you could smell them from spoons charmingly decorated with black tulle. The older editions were also presented and you could find out everything there is to know about their fragrances in conversation with the always charming Elise Juarros, one of the owners of the brand. 


 

AU PAYS DE LA FLEUR D'ORANGER

AU PAYS THE FLEUR THE ORANGER spread the love for neroli with their wonderful Fleur d'Oranger collection, which is perfect for me as a balance during the warm days in Dubai, but we didn't ignore the lovely collection Les Inedits, the Capsule Collection and the newest edition of the house Eau de Virginie, an homage to mimosa blossom.

 


 

LISE LONDON

QUINTESSENCE 2017
 

The booth of LISE LONDON was decorated with a manuscipt on the wall of all fragrance they presented, showcasing white bottles with perfumes for ladies and black bottles with perfumes for gentlemen. An Ideal Wife has stayed on my mind as a very lovely bouquet of white flowers, with a light, sophisticated and solar touch: my favorite from the collection.

 


 

 PARFUMS DU CHATEAU DE VERSAILLES

PARFUMS DU CHATEAU DE VERSAILLES always attracts crowds with their flacon designs and the inspiration of Versailles' history, beauty and glory. They presented their collection with the focus on the black and golden flacons of Promenade a Versailles Pour Lui and Les Ors De Versailles Pour Elle, both put on specially decorated platforms.

 



GELLE FRERES

QUINTESSENCE 2017

 

GELLE FRERES showcased a collection of five fragrances created without alcohol, inspired by five flowers for modern days Queens: the QUEEN NEXT DOOR Collection. The chosen flowers are orange blossom for Fleur d'Or Enjouee  (my favorite from the collection), magnolia blossom for Magnolia Boheme, rose for Rose Galante, exotic ylang ylang for Ylang Ylang Fatal, and the elegant Lys.

 


 

THE VAGABOND PRINCE

The woody music of the fragrance BASS SOLO from THE VAGABOND PRINCE was presented for the first time in the Middle East, together with the Swan Princess,  Land of Warriors and Enchanted Forest. Founders Elena and Zoran were at their booth speaking about their creations while the intoxicating and addictive, juicy black currant note spread its joy and brought a smile on my face whenever I approached the booth. I know it was the same for all the other visitors as well.  

 



TEAOLOGY

TEAOLOGY

TEAOLOGY shared their passion for teas through their fragrance and body collection.  During their explanations, all visitors could smell the different types of tea and find out more about their creations. They showcased facial masks, body creams, aqua creams, and detox masks, all based on teas. The fragrance they offer is Black Rose Tea All Over, an Eau de Toilette complemented with Rose Tea toning essence.
 


 

ACQUA DI SARDEGNA - SANDALIA COLLECTION
 

QUINTESSENCE 2017


The SANDALIA Collection by ACQUA DI SARDEGNA won my heart with these six new fragrances (Boeli, Coros, Karaly, Lo, Miana and Othoca) reflecting the history, landscapes and customs of the vivid and colorful island Sardinia. Each flacon has a specific mark linked with the theme of the fragrance. The color of the bottles is black, and they comes in attractive packaging that puts them on pedestal.


QUINTESSENCE 2017

QUINTESSENCE 2017

I especially liked Karaly, which is connected to the sun, and Othoca, a scent with fougere nuances that remind me of corals, stones, delicate root aromas, and the water of the sea crushing on the pebbles of the island coasts. Karaly is a bit sweet, intoxicating  and creamy, with a warm and cozy base of woods and resins.

 



JEALOUS COLLECTION

 

QUINTESSENCE 2017

QUINTESSENCE 2017

The JEALOUS collection presented four fragrances with golden caps designed to look like real crowns. The fragrances represent the Arabic tradition and the authenticity of the Arab world. Jealous Perfumes introduced their creations 1971, Misbar, Enec, Expo and the newest edition in a ruby red flacon (soon in our news).

 



THOMAS COSMALA PERFUMES

 

THOMAS KOSMALA QUINTESSENCE 2017

QUINTESSENCE 2017


I spent a lot of my time talking with perfumer THOMAS KOSMALA who exhibited at Quintessence for the second time. Black Oud and White Oud are his first creations he exclusively launched with Harrods in London a couple of years ago, and since then he created several more: Bukhoor, Vel, Rose, and the newest one, Neroli.
 

THOMAS KOSMALA DUBAI

QUINTESSENCE 2017

Cosmala delivered two very interesting speeches during the show - the first one was about natural ingredients and the second one about synthetic ones. Visitors were able to smell and try to recognize all of them, while Thomas guided them smartly. Neroli is one of my favorite notes in perfumery and I was attracted to try this creation first. With so many layers and different nuances of neroli, green, juicy and delicately sweet as fruits, a bit bitter, salty, fresh and sparkling, Thomas reflected in the loveliest way the beauty of this blossom.

 


 

ULRICH LANG

 

QUINTESSENCE 2017

QUINTESSENCE 2017 ULRICH LANG

It`s always a pleasure to meet ULRICH LANG. He presented his collection with the focus on his latest edition APSU, which won our attention in Florence last year. The lush and watery greenery complements the theme of this year's QUINTESSENCE so well, and it can be a joyful splash during the hot days in the Emirates. If someone finds it useful to know, Lightscape and Apsu are two of my favorites from Ulrich's collection.

 


 

EMMANUEL LEVAIN

NISHANE

QUINTESSENCE 2017


The new trio of the Shadow Play Collection (Hacivat, Karagoz and Zenne) by NISHANE we already knew from Milan's Excence, but we hadn't seen the beautifully done new packaging for the collection. Beside the mentioned collection, Murat and Mert presented the wide range of the complete Nishane collection and shared with us the beautiful cards especially illustrated to explains the story of their fragrances.

The Shadow Play fragrances will come in uniquely crafted wooden boxes, while the rest of the collection matches the color of the carton boxes with the flacons and fragrances (in black, red and beige). As you can see from my photos, the wooden box of Hacivat will have a white surface under the woody relief; for Zenne it will be red and for (my favorite) Karagoz it will be black, matching each bottle. There are also special illustrations on the boxes that I really liked.
 


 

TOM DAXON

As a cherry on the cake SIMONE COSAC was a pure pleasure for the nose and eyes. Beside the classic collection, Simone Cosac showcased the wonderful Amore Proibito flacon (read more about it in my article from Cannes), and her lovely Bianca, Sublime, Trama Nera, Trama, Ose. Also presented at the booth were her solid perfumes in specially crafted pendants: objects of pure grace and beauty!

Thank you, Sandra! The space for niche perfumes at Beauty World was very cozy and chic. The exhibition was huge and it was good to have some space to feel comfortable among your fellow niche brands.

I also liked the system and the place in the center of Quintessence pavilion dedicated to brand presentations. Very democratic and relaxed.

We visited other pavilions and halls, meet perfumers and other brands and people from the industry. Firmenich had many new offers, for example gel without alcohol for spraying just like any other EDP for the Middle East market, Sergey Borisov will explain everything in details.

It was a very interesting experience.
