Emeshel, founded in 2004, is known the world over for the design and creation of one of the world’s premium and most expensive collections in crystal and glass art. Emeshel is making a big impression in the U.S. with a new design and showroom in one of my favorite cities, Miami.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, there’s no better time for an innocent field trip to Emeshel to visit the exclusive collection of jewelry and accessories. While you’re there, take a whiff of one of Emeshel’s five new fine fragrances. Each is color coded in a 3.4 oz, gorgeously designed jeweled bottle. The bottle represents the human sexual organ (vahjayjay?) but there’s nothing obscene and you’d have to know that.
The bottle makes a very good impresssion with its weight and style but what really counts is the scent. I’ve been wearing Nubia Yellow and love it! No surprise to regular readers as I love citrus scents. The twist of bergamot and sweet orange put this one over the top and have Nubia in the best perfume placement in my household for fast and easy access. It lasted on me about 3 hours which is really good and the more I sniffed for the scent the more I wanted another spritz so I’ve been indulging myself (and those around me) with it. Here are all five fragrances…
- Nubia Yellow brings together the scents of refreshing lemon juice, fresh citrus and limes with a fragrance combining oil of bergamot with sweet orange from Brazil.
- Nubia Red evokes the delicate aroma of a sensual Odalisque, with hints of tangerine, vanilla, blackcurrant and musk.
- Nubia Green portrays the bouquet of a newly mowed lawn, green leaves and an intensely crisp lemon combined with refreshing dew.
- Nubia Rose implies freshly brewed ice tea, oil of bergamot, grapefruit and orange — combining the aromatic fragrances of a modern-day metropolis with a metallic elegance.
- Nubia Violet brings the fresh, waggish notes of the fruit-bearing harvest, complete with ripe grapes, sun-kissed blackberries, mulberries and hints of green apple, peach and sea breeze.
So where’d the name come from? Emeshel named the line NUBIA to pay homage to the Egyptian kings who first introduced fragrances during ancient burial rituals circa 3500 B.C. From the press release:
…named after the ancient state of northeast Arabia once occupied by the Egyptian kings. Also part of the newly launched Emeshel Beauty line is the company’s first cologne for men, RAJUL, named after the ancient Arabic word for “Man.”
The Emeshel gallery is located at 3930 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami’s Design District. This is surely the most exciting fragrance launch in a long time and there’s a skincare line set to launch in 2009!
Emeshel’s NUBIA has been developed in collaboration with one of Europe’s finest award-winning perfumers, Zsolt Zolyomi is one of the few artists in perfumery to earn a certificate from the world-renowned School for Luxury Cosmetics Development in Versailles, France, founded by Jean-Paul Guerlain. Zolyomi graduated from the school’s international division and is currently considered one of the world’s leading creators of “haute couture” perfume today.
