The scent of a woman
PRESTIGE Bengal has just enriched the perfume wares of Dhaka, to the delight of the city's perfume lovers. In an elegant launching ceremony held at the Floor 6 café in Banani Road #11, the next big thing in Dhaka's perfume landscape was unveiled on the afternoon of April 21, in the form of Si Lolita, a new fragrance line from the house of Lolita Lempicka, the famous French fashion designer.

The fragrance, which is marketed as the “Scent of happiness”, is one inspired by the vivacity of nature. The top note dazzles with the spicy freshness of bergamot, mandarin and pink berries. The spiciness is muted in the middle notes of sweet pea, gillyflower and heliotrope, while the base notes are enhanced by a touch of elemi, patchouli, tonka bean and amber.

The bottle is artistic and tinged with romance. In the shape of the talisman of the four-leaf clover, but with hearts replacing the leaves in artistic curves and arches, the bottle is sure to attract those with a weakness for the finer things in life.

The perfume was introduced to the press by Sabrina Sarkar, the brand manager for Prestige Bengal. Si Lolita will be available in ranges of 80ml and 50ml bottles at Prestige Bengal's showroom Paris Parfums. So, for men looking for gifts for their better halves, these olfactory delights will not go amiss.
