NAUTICA- A voyage of discovery

In an ever changing world where glamour and distinction are most sought after, Prestige Bengal introduces yet another world-renowned fragrance, this time for men. The very latest in their long list of prestigious international brands of perfume, NAUTICA, is for the man who knows no boundaries. The perfume is available in two new fragrances- Nautica Voyage and Nautica Blue.

Nautica Voyage, as the name suggests, symbolizes a man on a journey. Created by award winning perfumer, Maurice Roucels from Symrice, Nautica Voyage is a fresh, cool, aquatic fragrance. With invigorating top notes of watery green leaf and fresh apple, mimosa and water lotus as the core and musk and sandalwood as the base- the fragrance truly energises the mind and body. As for the design of the bottle, the first thing that draws attention to it is the shape. Symbolizing a miniature sailboat and bisected in two tones of blue that suggest the meeting of the sky and sea, the bottle is truly a masterpiece that evokes elegances, sophistication and simplicity! With components such as these, the fragrance is definitely one to remember!

Nautica Blue, on the other hand, is an energetic fragrance that symbolizes the crystalline blue ocean and clear azure seas. With top notes of a fruity aromatic base that include bergamot and pineapple, a flowery base of jasmine and water lily, and base note of musk and sandalwood, the fragrance creates an effect filled with the freshness and energy of the ocean.

Launched by Prestige Bengal on January 28, during an elegant and classy event at the rooftop poolside of Hotel Lakeshore, the two fragrances will be available in all leading departmental stores across Dhaka by the end of this week. While Nautica Voyage is available only in form of Eau de Toilette of 100ml and 50ml bottles, Nautica Blue comes in a wide range of products that include Eau de Toilette (100ml, 50ml), After Shave (100ml), Deo Spray (150ml) and Deo Natural Spray (75ml).
