Dubai-based Ajmal Perfumes est. 1951 launched a new perfume called Bling as in a humorous reference to the taste for ostentation the Middle East is famous for.
"A rich dose of rose intertwined with heady woody notes, Bling is a very rich and potent fragrance that has volume as well as good retention. A sure shot at making your presence felt wherever you go, the fragrance envelopes the environment making your statement, bold."...
The fragrance composition developed under the supervision of chief perfumer Nazir Ajmal includes notes of cinnamon, rose, guaiacwood, patchouli and musk.
Ajmal list the three main accords as being "spicy" in the stop, "floral woody" in the heart and "woody musky" in the base.
Culturally, the new scent is presented as a "premium French perfume" by Trade Arabia in what appears to refer to an informal label of quality, almost a metaphor for luxury in fragrance as it is actually developed locally unless it is a reference to the sourcing of perfumery ingredients. In fact, perfumer Nazir Ajmal stresses in his bio that he acts as consultant for European companies wishing to develop Arabian-styled perfumes, Orientals in particular.
"Abdulla Ajmal, general manager, sales and marketing, Ajmal Perfumes, said: “Following months of research and testing among our diverse customer base, we are delighted to finally introduce Bling into this market.”
“This premium fragrance is a unique entry into this region as it is a modern oriental fragrance with an essence that is international in its composition.”
Bling comes in a 75 ml eau de parfum spray bottle decorated with crystals.
