There are few greater feelings in life than that of ripping off a piece of wrapping paper to reveal a beautiful bottle of perfume – it’s a guaranteed winner every time.
Tasked with buying a fragrance for your mother/sister/daughter/friend? Of course you’ve already begun combing the department store counters for ‘the one’. But, when the go-to gift of the festive season also happens to convey the most personal of sentiments, it pays to opt for a brand renowned for creating world class scents.
Enter Rasasi. Symbolising luxury, high quality and sheer elegance, the Dubai-based family-owned fragrance label’s signature LaYuqawam line is ideal for holiday gifting, particulary if you're looking to impress.
The special-edition LaYuqawam (meaning Irresistible in Arabic) line showcases true opulence and prestige and is a sensuous ode to elegance and charm. Encased in chic, beautifully tarnished bottles labelled with charming titles such as Jasmine Wisp to Orchid Prairie, this luxurious six-scent collection lends a modern feel of refinement to classic oriental perfumery.
The LaYuqawam Pour Femme is particularly beguiling; opening with white floral and citrus notes inflected by bergamot, blackcurrant and jasmine that melt into hot and spicy waves of cinnamon and pepper and Ylang Ylang, finally mellowing to an exotic woody trail. Meanwhile, the Pour Homme fragrance exudes earthy, bittersweet leathery notes. It’s no wonder as to why the name LaYuqawam was decided on.
The sheer love put into this series transcends beyond the originally targeted Arab nationalities to international lovers of perfume, looking for a sophisticated and modern exhilarating oriental experience.
