    Default NEW: Widian - London!

    WIDIAN, Abu Dhabi-based niche perfume house is proud to announce the release of its newest collection, Sapphire.

    LONDON, the first scent from the Sapphire collection, will be releasing worldwide in January of 2018.

    The new Sapphire Collection is a testament to cities and will be dedicate to different cities worldwide.

    London perfume is inspired by the lights and proud culture of cosmopolitan city of London but stretching far beyond borders in its appeal.

    The fragrance, LONDON, will join a list of high-end perfumes developed by WIDIAN’s founder Ali Al Jaberi, who has collaborated with perfumers from all around the world to curate a line of exclusive fragrances that cater to the most discerning clientele.

    With LONDON, the fragrance tells an intercontinental story that bridges between London and the UAE, offering the perfect scent for the modern person, worldly yet true to their roots.

    London has always been a city of high culture, a city synonymous with luxury.

    Once upon a time the epicenter of history’s greatest empire, it is the city of great abbeys and royal palaces, the city of Saville Row, Harrods, and the Ritz.

    A city that has inspired countless works of art and literature. In this vein, the fragrance, LONDON is no different; at once a work of art and a testament to one of the world’s greatest cities.

    As part of the Sapphire collection, LONDON’s bottle and packaging have been inspired by the grandiose Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

    The package and bottle’s intricate details mirror the meticulous attributes of the Grand Mosque’s arches and domes; adding to the exclusivity and exquisiteness of the fragrance

    Each of WIDIAN’s packages, although familiar, takes you on a unique journey with its exceptional fragrances.

    By opening WIDIAN's box, you unlock the door to a world that combines familiar and foreign to reveal a magnificent journey.

    The Fragrance:

    Top note: Oud Wood, Cypress and Violet

    Middle note: Lilly of the Valley, and Raspberry

    Base note: Leather, Dry Amber, Musk, and Vanilla

    LONDON takes you on a journey, from east to west.

    The opening notes are those of the deep, dark Oud Wood and Cypress which are complemented by the sweet floral aroma of Violets.

    The middle notes; Lily of the Valley and Raspberry, give LONDON an earthy, fruity dimension.

    The base notes of Leather and Dry Amber give the scent a level of added sophistication and complexity, while hints of Vanilla and Musk tie the fragrance together in a true demonstration of a classic destination, with a contemporary twist.

    LONDON; where tradition and modernity meet.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I'd welcome any opinion, as our retailer already carries this scent

    Still no well-founded opinion? Chances are tomorrow I'll receive my sample and I want to know what to think of it

    Yeah, I’m curious myself. I’ve tried the first 4 from the Black Collection and they were all great. London sounds intriguing, but some of the reviews I’ve seen mention “raspberry, leather, oud/wood” which sounds like a Tom Ford Tuscan Leather profile, so I’m wondering if it’s in that same zip code...
