Qatar Duty Free welcomed the festive season with the installation of a spectacular Dolce & Gabbana display featuring a larger-than-life snow globe at Hamad International Airport (HIA). The snow globe, at four metres high, is the centrepiece of a display showcasing Dolce & Gabbana’s luxurious products, and celebrates the launch of their newest fragrance for men, The One Royal Night . It will be on display until 14 January 2016. The elegant black and gold display, which is located behind the renowned HIA Lamp Bear sculpture, brings the magic of a winter wonderland to the desert, with a snow man, fabulously wrapped gifts and the snow globe featuring the stunning Doha skyline. The joint collaboration between Dolce & Gabbana and Qatar Duty Free, offers plenty of options for passengers looking to buy a gift for themselves or someone special just in time for the holidays.
Qatar Duty Free Senior Vice President, Mr. Keith Hunter, said: “We are extremely excited to partner with Dolce & Gabbana to celebrate the official launch of their newest fragrance, The One Royal Night. Qatar Duty Free prides itself on offering passengers exclusive fragrances and beauty products, and this is no exception. This partnership not only marks the launch of The One Royal Night at HIA, but is an opportunity for Qatar Duty Free to offer customers the Dolce & Gabbana make-up and Velvet collections. We hope that those travelling from, and through, HIA will enjoy visiting the beautiful display and exploring some thoughtful and personalised gift ideas.”
The One Royal Night for men is an exclusive fragrance within Dolce & Gabbana’s Classic House, The One. The newest fragrance with an Arabian twist is an exclusive product from the designers for the Middle East, inspired by the richness, culture and traditions of the region. The One Royal Night for men is described by Dolce & Gabbana as a blend of opulence and sophistication boasting a woody composition with notes of cardamom, basil, wild pear wood, and spicy nutmeg, followed by a base of cedar, sandalwood, labdanum and pure amber in its most refined form.
Qatar Duty Free will also offer a select number items from the Dolce & Gabbana make-up and niche fragrance collection, Velvet, for the first time at the display. Dolce & Gabbana make up items available include Classic, Voluptuous and Matte
