White Elegant Gardenia

The three Lux variants are represented by: Maya Ali for the White Elegant Gardenia, Mahira Khan for the Red Hypnotic Roseand MawraHocane for the Pink Charming Magnolia. This blog will be covering the benefits of the White Elegant Gardenia that is represented by Maya Ali.

Symbolizing love, harmony and grace, Elegant Gardenia, the white variant of Lux comes from the flower Gardenia. The plant is a beautiful decorative shrub with fragrant white flowers. The enchanting notes of Japanese Gardenia with the warmth and depth of Cedar Wood Oil is a captivating fragrance. Found in the far east, mainly India and China, Elegant Gardenia is a classic version of the namesake flower which is a perennial favourite especially in the summer. With its sweet smell, the flower is seductive and irresistible and the heady fragrance is enhanced with violet and freesia. The cultural association of Gardenia with upper class French man, as a corset to their attire, was to symbolize prestige. Lux’s connection with the fragrance is also to provide one a royal premium experience by capturing the fragrant essence of the perfume into a soap bar to provide one a truly long-lasting scent.

It was a delight to see the traditional Maya Ali representing the white variant. Moving away from her iconic look, Maya looked like a pure beauty dressed in white. Representing her fragrance, Elegant Gardenia, Maya sparkled in a white dress and shiny gems which complimented her as she strode like a royal. Maya says nobody would remember how bright her diamonds shone but would remember her expressions; which are as strong as the fragrance of Gardenia which stays with your skin after a shower with Lux.

Charming Magnolia, the pink variant of Lux is made from the flower Magnolia. With more than 200 different species prominently found in the gardens of France, the flower is also known as French Magnolia and is found in the soft shades of pink. With touches of exotic Kashmir Wood notes and the sweet florally of Magnolia, this is an elegant yet powerful fragrance. It represents luxury, prestige and addiction. The scent smells lemony and citrus like. Fragrance aside, the hardy nature of the shrubs and trees on which these flowers grow have allowed it to survive and thrive in harsh conditions over so much evolutionary time, and it has developed a unique nutrient and organic compound composition over that time as well, representing potentially powerful health benefits for humans. Apart from giving your skin the perfect glow and texture, this variant helps deal with skin allergies.

Representing Charming Magnolia, the pink variant of Lux, Mawra does the fragrance justice by looking like a blooming flower herself with her perfect glowing skin and luscious brown locks flowing down her shoulders. She talks about how the audience would not remember what she wore but would remember her smile and there is no doubt that anybody can forget that.
