Distinguished through their vibrant colors, each bottle is made of the finest glass and metal stamped with Carolina Herrera’s monogram.

After Emeshe’s demonstration, Linda invited guests to “be a part of the confidence” by approaching Emeshe’s experiential table to ask questions, and mix fragrances while being served more cocktails and bubbly.

It was an afternoon guests will not forget as they were led into the breath taking private dining area for a delicious 3 course meal. The highlight of the event was Godwin Strings, who once again serenaded guests who thoroughly appreciated him and had such a great time they abandoned their meals to dance.

On their way out, the fashionable guests parted with exclusive gift bags containing Herrera Confidential fragrance bottles, the essential oils for each fragrance as well as Carolina Herrera coffee table books courtesy of the brand.

    Nice one from Carolina Herrera and daughter. Nigerians sure do love their fragrances. Ezinne Alfa is bae ? I love her style. An exclusive crowd for an exclusive brand launch. I wonder if there is an oriental scent within the collection. I need one in my life!

    Not trying to shade someone else’s progress but Carolina Herrera? Who dey wear that one again especially among the size 0-4 crowd of youngish peeps? I guess the goal here is to pretty on our colonial mentality that every thing white and foreign is the best. Make Una convince am to use Nigerian fabrics at least and to sew for the plus sizes….plus by 5th Avenue standards

      I guess nobody is “wearing her” that’s why she’s worth over $100m. smh. Try and be happy for others’ achievements. Try a little bit. It’s not that hard is it?

      I work in the Luxury beauty business and I can tell you categoricaly that CH sells better than even the most luxurious brand you might think is greater.

      Stop assuming because you don’t wear it!!!

      This is just a product launch and they spend such a good amount on it..(obviously, from the ambience and quality of the event), so you can imagine CH has a very good market share.
