Dubai Jade. Vibrant and high-energy, Dubai Jade blends sparkling florals with languid incense. Starting of with nuanced wood violet leaves, tart raspberry, and warming cumin, it segues into a heart of classic florals—rose, lily, and jasmine—played out against crisp, clean cedarwood. A mélange of syrupy base notes—resinous amber and its botanic counterpart. ambrette, along with sensual musk, incense-rich oud, and leather-like birch tar—add a powerful resonance.
Dubai Garnet. Here, a romantic floral bouquet gets some unexpected partner notes. It starts with a brisk wakeup call: citrusy bergamot, light but musky blackberry, licorice-like cardamom, invigorating seaweed, and pink pepper that smells distinctly like a rose. Rose in fact is a major mid-note, accompanying those other florals, magnolia, jasmine, and lavender, along with succulent plum and spicy cumin. Classic woody and resinous base notes—musk, amber, myrrh and vetiver—give staying power, while oak moss adds a creamy-soft hint of chypre. These and all our Dubai scents are housed in the Bond No. 9 superstar bottle decked with Arabic starbursts on a gold background, while an arched door bearing the gemstone color each scent is named for beckons front and center.
