LDC’s luxury Ignacio Figueras ‘Dubai’ fragrance gains Emirates listing

By Charlotte Turner |

Luxury unisex fragrance, ‘Ignacio Figueras, Dubai’, from renowned Argentinian polo player and philanthropist Nacho Figueras, has been listed by Emirates for the second quarter of this year. 


The agreement for the Ignacio Figueras Collection’s Dubai scent, signed with fragrance creator and distributor The Lovely Distribution Company Ltd, is exclusive to the airline, which is offering a free 10ml purse spray as a GWP with every 100ml bottle purchased.


The RRP price onboard is $220. The domestic RRP is $275 without the GWP spray.


“Dubai has a very sophisticated oud that represents a crossroads of culture, commerce, commodity and architecture,” said The Lovely Distribution Company. “Earthy Oud oil, suede, sandal wood, ginger and tonka bean, are all reminders of a true oasis of hospitality and the noble sport, polo.”


Emirates is offering a free 10ml purse spray as a GWP with every 100ml bottle purchased.

Dubai is one of six scents that make up the Ignacio Figueras Collection, all inspired by his lifestyle, emotions and colours of six international polo tournament destinations — Buenos Aires, Palm Beach, Aspen, Windsor, Jaipur and Dubai.


The Lovely Distribution Company worked with IFF master perfumer Carlos Benaim to create the collection of fragrances for Figueras, one of the top 100 polo players in the world, captain of the US Black Watch Polo Team and international recognised model and businessman.


Each scent has notes and design cues that portray the stories connected to the grand Polo locations upon which they are based.


“LDC launched the Ignacio Figueras Collection in December 2019 exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman, followed by an exclusive launch with Harrods in May 2022,” revealed Jacqueline Kissenpfennig, Chief Commercial Officer, The Lovely Distribution Company Ltd.


“Since then they have expanded the collection into Neiman Marcus in the USA, and niche and exclusive perfumeries in Europe and the Middle East.


“Targeted at the affluent consumer – polo enthusiasts with a luxury lifestyle that appreciate quality products – the Ignacio Figueras Collection has quickly established itself as a leading player in the luxury fragrance sector.


“The Dubai fragrance is the perfect fit for Emirates Airlines and its passenger profile and we’re delighted to have secured this listing for the brand.”
