Style & Comfort are two essential factors, which most times, determines the outcome of a masterpiece. Be it a car, house or just the interiors of a hotel lobby, what wins the heart is the instant ‘feel good’ element that one is able to resonate with.
About a month back, I attended the grand launch of Capital Stores’s new outlet in Muscat, at the newly opened Oceans mall in Qurum. And what I witnessed, was a show of opulence, class, elegance and a mark of excellence to say the least. Being amongst the highly reputed luxury outlets in Oman over the last decade, it’s USP has always aimed at heightening it’s quality of products and premium customer service at any given point. Being amidst a very elite list of invitees at the store launch, every effort was made to ensure that it’s very best was on display.
Over the years, Capital Stores has primarily specialized in selling the most high end Fragrances, Beauty products and Gift items. Ranging from Baccrat and Christofle household items to Dior, Guerlain, Isse Miyake, Chopard perfumes to Clarins beauty sets to Mont Blanc pens, it’s ability to set the standards of catering to a upper class cliental, has given it a touch above it’s competitors today. I was given an exclusive tour around the new store during the launch, with one of their sales person familiarizing and giving me a sample of all their best selling products, to try. What stood out, wasn’t just the kind of Azzaro’s, Burberry’s and Davidoff’s that they shelve at their boutique store, but the classy layout and presentation of the products that makes you want to pick it up and buy it.
The one product that caught my eye was a French cologne called Kilian, Pure Oud- from the Arabic Nights collection. Being the newest and most sort after fragrance at the store, this sensual spray had everyone’s smell senses wanting for more. Infused with a touch of woody and spiced oil and wrapped in an authentic, yet inviting arabic aroma, signifies it’s touch of raw class and dignified elegance.
Be it delicious Omani halwa serves in a golden platter to the traditional Kawa to compliment the charm of the occasion, every little effort made to go the extra mile, made the evening just as memorable and exclusive as the masterpieces on display that Capital Stores is known for.
