The world’s oldest perfumes came from Pyrgos, Cyprus, more than 4000 years ago and even today, right now, modern perfumery discovers a hundred different types of scents every month, which come from various roots such as flowers, fruits, spices or even gourmand elements, to name just a few.
What’s even more intriguing about perfumes is that they tend to smell differently on different people and you really never know if you’re a ‘floral’ person or more of the ‘fruity type’ until you try it on yourself! I was on one of these discovery sessions when I came upon ‘Prose’ by iconic perfumer Ajmal, sitting pretty in a striking pink bottle.
As very young, spirited and fresh scent, Prose evokes a feminine, warm, and playful aroma. What I liked about it was the interplay between fresh, younger notes, and a more mature, and earthly aroma- perfect for me! With fresh citrus fruits such as orange, melon, and apple, with a fruity trifecta of strawberry, coconut, and sugar – it flirts with mid and base notes of a rich laden amber, vanilla, and musk.
Great for a girly day out or a quick rejuvenating boost in the coming hot summer days. Find it at all Ajmal stores in the GCC as a 60ml Eau De Parfum, for only AED 100!
