This week: M Micallef expands in the emirate, and a new street festival.
Luxury French fragrance house M Micallef (no number as yet) has just opened its second store in Dubai in fancy pants mall BurJuman. The one-of-a-kind perfumes are a unique mix of French and Arabic scents and the fragrance bottles are particularly exquisite. If for nothing else, make a purchase here as a gift or own one of these hand-crafted crystal bottles, which feature hand-painted motifs, Swarovski diamantes and in one case, even a falcon’s head.
Meanwhile, the carnival-inspired Dubai Marina Street Festival is now on in New Dubai, and is entertaining residents with comedy, magic, fire shows, aerial dance, juggling and even bike shows every day from 4pm-10pm until Saturday April 12. Performances are taking place inside Dubai Marina Mall (04 436 1020) at the Dome Atrium and outdoors on the Promenade featuring international acts including Italian comedian Andrea Farnetani and French acrobat Ben Renard. Until next week, happy shopping!
