When Al Pacino danced his way to an Academy Award in 1992, the storied Cotillion Room at The Pierre Hotel in New York provided the backdrop for the now-iconic tango scene. The legendary hotel’s new Scent of A Woman package recalls this beloved movie moment and offers romance in #PerfectlyPierre style.
Celebrating its 90th anniversary later this year, The Pierre has been host to some of the city’s most glamorous weddings and engagements since opening on October 1st, 1930. Guests can watch the tango clip on in-room TVs or in the hotel’s recently opened #PierreStories historical gallery. The Scent of A Woman package includes a keepsake bottle of Amorem Rose parfum by Shalini, a fragrance that pays homage to the greatest love.
“Romance and timeless elegance are at the heart of what makes The Pierre such a beloved destination for couples,” says Francois-Olivier Luiggi, General Manager of the hotel. “During this milestone year, we are thrilled to revisit the magic of this blockbuster film and introduce guests to the romance of Amorem Rose.”
Inspired by the rose gardens of the Taj Mahal, a symbol of great love, Amorem Rose is the perfect partner for The Pierre, the North American flagship for Taj Hotels. The fragrance is a glorious composition of Bulgarian rose, Plum wine, Saffron flowers, Baltic amber and Mahogany wood. The Damask Rose, grown in Bulgaria’s Rose Valley, is considered the most fragrant, exquisite and opulent of all roses. It is the heart of Amorem Rose.
“The rose is considered to have the highest “love energy” of all flowers, it is the symbol of divine feminine love,” says Shalini. “Amorem Rose represents the essence of luxury. The motivation behind each of my perfumes is to create something of beauty, of lasting value and of the ethereal that will stand the test of time – modern masterpieces. The Pierre is my favorite hotel in New York, truly an oasis in the city. With its French and Indian heritage and iconic status, it is the perfect home for Amorem Rose.”
Couples who book the Scent of A Woman package will receive an exclusive gift: a 0.25-ounce bottle of Amorem Rose presented in its signature handcrafted, signed black box with yellow ribbon. Guests who reserve one of The Pierre’s Grand Suites will receive an elegant white lacquer, gold-plated 0.4-ounce travel-sized bottle of the fragrance. All package bookings include a $100 minibar credit which can be applied towards a half bottle of Taittinger Champagne or other in-room food & beverage amenities. The package runs through the end of 2020.
Since opening in 1930, The Pierre has been revered as a quintessential monument to New York City romance and grandeur. From Henry Fonda and Jane Seymour to Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher, celebrities, socialites, business magnates and fashion icons have all selected the landmark hotel as the backdrop for the most important moments of their lives. The Pierre’s iconic Rotunda has been described as one of NYC’s most romantic places for couples.
