Ajmal Perfumes recently launched its unique initiative called ‘Qafiya’ in press conference at the symbolic Burj Al Arab hotel
Ajmal Perfumes, the region’s multi-award winning fragrance house recently launched its unique initiative called ‘Qafiya’ in a press conference at the symbolic Burj Al Arab hotel.
The journey of this initiative took place when Rashid Abdulla Turki Alturki, a young, energetic and vibrant Emirati walked into Ajmal’s office with a concept of collaborating with the brand to launch a fragrance. A fragrance that represents the new-age Emirati lifestyle but marinated in local traditions that’s so integral to every Emirati, young and old.
This concept worked brilliantly well with the brand Ajmal, as it has been embarking on initiatives where it could work with local talents and add value to the ‘community’ that’s been at the forefront of its existence in this region. After all, Dubai was the city that Ajmal opened its first retail showroom in 1976.
The core idea of this ‘community’ initiative was built on the premise that Rashid Abdulla will have a panel of dynamic Emiratis who will work with Ajmal from the concept creation of this new fragrance to the final development of the product.
The pitch was to have “UAE’s first fragrance that’s ‘made’ by the young, new-age Emirati community, ‘for’ the young, new-age Emirati community”.
Through this collaborative approach, Ajmal is proud to introduce the two unisex fragrances called Qafiya 01 for day wear and Qafiya 02 for the evenings.
