My visit to Diane Pernet Paris at Plethora in the Dubai Mall

Dear Shaded Viewers,

As I told you as luck would have it, no accidents in life, my Diane Pernet Paris perfumes arrived in Dubai a few days before I did. On my last day in Dubai, as you might imagine, the first thing I did was to go to visit the rare perfume shop , Plethora, and meet the General Manager, Ahmad Malek  and his team. There are 3 distinct corners to the shop, one is the library of scents if you only have time for a short visit, then there is the small museum where I would love to have limited edition DP bottle created by Miguel Villalobos…and then here is the lounge area where you can take your time reveling in the mysteries of the perfumes.


I just received the best message on FB from Omar Nardi "Hi Diane, We met many years ago when I was a student at the Mode Natie, Anwerp..anyway I am writing to you because yesterday I bought one of your fragrances …WANTED and I have no words…I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. You are a genius…Omar Nardi..

How beautiful is that testimonial?
