Highlights and #Photos from the @hayariparis Parfum Launch @HenriBendel #NewYorkCity

Who is that woman in your life? You know the decidedly feminine one with a vanity not filled with a ton of 'cheap' scents but one classic one? One Vanity worthy beautiful bottle of her signature scent?

The women in my family all have very different senses of style, but are all very feminine and in many ways romantics at heart. As a girl I used to love watching my Mom get ready to go out, I was amazed by her ritual which always ended with her 'walking into' her scent.

As for me, it's hard to find a women's fragrance that doesn't go over the top with the florals to prove it's feminine and that has always been my biggest issue with women's fragrance. What use is beautiful packaging if the fragrance inside doesn't meet the mark?

Creating a fragrance is an art, finding your signature scent is certainly a journey, and the memories you create wearing it is the icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned!

I recently had the opportunity to attend the launch of Hayari Parfums Paris debut at fine shopping retailer Henri Bendel in New York City. I knew if the House of 'Hayari Couture' was behind this trio of luxury fragrances that the packaging would certainly be beautiful and it did not disappoint, but what stands out is how ultra-feminine the trio really is. They are feminine in a way that harkens to old world romance, back to true sensuality, not just the sexuality that is used to sell everything under the sun now a days!

About Broderie:

The inspiration for this fragrance (my personal favorite of the trio by the way) is embroidery and lace, which designer Nabil Hayari of the House of Hayari uses within his collections as they are the most elegant and glamorous of textiles. (I have a strong feeling my Grand-Mother would have loved this one as much as I do as her embroidery was very much top notch and she would have loved the back story on this scent!). I am also very partial to the Sandalwood and Amber combo!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Top Notes: Mandarin, Peach
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Middle Notes: Lys, Gardenia, Incense
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Base Notes: Sandalwood, Patchouli Oil, Amber

About Goldy:

This is a woody-powdery fragrance created by the nose behind Amouage Memoir Women inspired by glamorous vintage couture (which of course speaks to Nabil Hayari's background as a Couture Fashion Designer!). This is the scent that I received and as I love White Jasmine, Sandalwood and Cedarwood I do like Goldy (but I am a bit more partial to the way Broderie 'dies down' on my body chemistry), Goldy really does marry a combination of singular elements well, it is actually even parts Woody, Powdery and a subtle warm Oriental all at once which means your chemistry may play up one element more than the others, for some reason this one on me remains powdery making it very playful and soft so don't be put off by the 'woody-powder' description it really isn't too much of one or the other but a very smart marriage of the two!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Top Notes: Mugwort, Rosemary
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Middle Notes: White Jasmine, Narcissus, Orange Blossom
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Base Notes: Sandalwood, Musk, Cedarwood

About The Designer, Nabil Hayari:

Drawn to the world of Fashion at a very early age, Mr. Hayari decided to create his own label in 2009, with a mission of bringing to life the type of gowns women dream of wearing. He has dressed Top Models and Princesses, and now with his line of fragrances in their 'blossom' designed packaging combining the faceting of jewels with the softness of a flower opening, he brings his sense of luxe fashion design to the world of fine fragrance.

At the launch at Henri Bendel's in New York City (The Fifth Avenue Boutique being the home of trendy fashionista's in New York) one of his beautiful gowns was also featured, here are photos from the launch:

  1. Mr.Hayari seems to have a handle on what makes a women feel beautiful lovely cloths and a scent that brings out dreamer in us.!! KUDOS !!

    1. @Big Happy Buddha - Definitely, these are a true tribute to a woman's femininity!

      ♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

  2. Beautiful bottles! I haven't worn perfume since I discovered Bath & Body Works lotion when I was a teenager, though. ;D

    1. @Kristin Aquariann - I will say I'm pretty picky when it comes to scents and we have featured very few since we launched because of it. These are so super feminine without being clawing!

      I haven't been to a Bath & Body Works in AGES, you've got me thinking I should head in there the next time I pass one!

      ♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
