Day 1: Three (3) Maison Francis Kurkdjian 724 Eau de Parfum 70ml (valued at HK$5,640)
Francis Kurkdjian, whose globe-trotting adventures have brought him from Paris to New York, then Sydney, then Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, New Delhi, Mumbai and an entire laundry list to follow, is convinced of one thing. That despite the geographic, socio-cultural, anthropological differences that exist in each and every city, there’s a communal magnetism that connects big-city living – and big-city dreaming. “There is something about big cities that sweeps over you, electrifies you, elevates you,” the founder of Maison Francis Kurkdjian muses. “I translated that communicative energy, that life pulsating in unison, into a musky, floral, urban fragrance that I named 724, for 24 hours of scented living, seven days a week.”
Oozing with notes of Italian bergamot, jasmine absolute and sandalwood, 724 wears its floral-musk like a blanket of protection; an olfactory ode to waking up to the scent of fresh laundry – in Kurkdjian’s evocative vignette, we’re in Manhattan at the break of dawn – already buzzing; vibrating. Entirely alive. And just for you, dear Prestige reader, there’s one for you and for each of your two best friends. Or, all three (3) Maison Francis Kurkdjian 724 eau de parfums – would that be 2172? – just for you, no judgement here.
Day 2: Akoni Lynx Sunglasses in Black (valued at HK$5,761)
Forever inspired by the architectural landmarks of the twentieth century, Akoni has been for years seated on the pedestal of eyewear expertise, craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence. Akoni’s new Lynx sunglasses is an homage to the works of a renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, also dubbed “sculptor of monuments”. The form of this pair creates a new dimension of the cat-eye frame – the dip at the nose bridge, traced by the brows, follows the natural curvature of a human face. Attesting to the graphic, precise and, sometimes, maximalist nature of Niemeyer’s buildings, Akoni uses thick acetate panels to shape the frame and temples. The masterfully lifted mirrored lenses in grey extend the air of mysticism and modernism.
Day 3: Two (2) Night Teardrop Hotel Stays (valued at HK$7,500)
Acclaimed for contemporising centuries-old heritage buildings and vintage tea bungalows-with-views in distinct regions across the island, Teardrop luxury hotels in Sri Lanka are defined by each destination and encourage you to explore, experience and shape your own Sri Lanka story. This giveaway includes 1 night at the Wallawwa near Colombo and 1 night at the Fort Bazaar in Galle, as well as breakfasts for two and a one-way airport transfer from Colombo Airport to Wallawwa. The offer is available for the next 12 months from 1st January 2023 onwards, outside of public holidays. T&Cs apply.
Day 4: Two (2) CircleDNA Premium DNA test (valued at HK$4,990 each)
We’re knee-deep in gifting season but we admit, it’s not always easy to buy gifts for people you care about. People have different tastes after all, and vastly different Christmas wish lists. But at the end of the day, what we all want for ourselves, our friends, our family and every single one of our loved ones is good health. So, why not, for this Christmas, win your loved ones a Premium DNA test kit from CircleDNA so they can have all the information on their health at their fingertips?
Day 5: Proenza Schouler Bag from The Outnet (valued at HK$5,712)
Get. That. Bag. Specifically, get this bag from Proenza Schouler by way of The Outnet. Cast in navy pebble-grained leather and fronted with a large-and-in-charge buckle, this top-handle (that can also be worn as a crossbody!) is as everyday as an everyday bag can get. And if you love it, there’s this and so much more priced-down stunners on The Outnet – because your brother-in-law and favourite cousin doesn’t need to know you didn’t pay full-price for their brand-new designer ‘fits. Our secret!
Day 6: A LKF Concepts Dining Voucher (valued at HK$5,000)
Calling all foodies! Esculent indulgences are a must for the holiday season, and if your Christmas wish is a bellyful of deliciousness, a ticket to all of the restaurants within LKF Concepts’ delicious family might just be the festive wish you’ve been ten-fingers-crossed wishing for.

Bring a friend – or bring five! – and make it a party.

Day 7: 3 Intense Glow Treatment Sessions at Esthe Clinic (valued at HK$6,900)
Looking for a pain-free and non-invasive option that leaves you with glowing dewy skin? The Intense Glow treatment is the answer with proven results in evening skin tone, reducing hyperpigmentation, tightening pores and increasing collagen production. Esthe Clinic is giving away not one, not two, but three full sessions of Intense Glow treatment. Say goodbye to dull saggy skin!
Day 8: Three (3) Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Forte Eau de Parfum and Rouge G Lipstick sets (valued at HK$1720 each)
Guerlain has opened up a new chapter for the Aqua Allegoria – a new range that’s richer and more intense called the Aqua Allegoria Forte. The new range revisits the brand’s two most iconic scents, Mandarine Basilic and Rosa Rossa, enhancing the nose of the eau de perfumes as well as increasing the volume of each bottle. If you haven’t had a sniff yet – you should, now. Mandarine Basilic smells like fresh and tangy mandarins sublimated by warming vanilla underlined with base notes of sandalwood, while Rosa Rossa is a heady dose of rose – a trio to be exact – of the French, Turkish and Bulgarian variety, brightened with notes of white peach and woody tones of sandalwood and patchouli.
The beauty set is completed with a Rouge G de Guerlain lipstick shade – a luscious, long-wearing lip colour in a satin finish that is infused with lip care. With jojoba and mango butter embedded in the formula, as well as hyaluronic acid and gugul resin, your plumped and moistened lips will thank you later.
We’re giving away three (3) sets of one Aqua Allegoria Forte perfume and one Rouge G Lipstick, packaged in a delightful pouch that’ll make quick touch-ups at holiday dinners and parties a breeze.
Day 9: MZ Skin Glow Boost Ampoules, Pigmentation Correcting Ampoules and Instant Radiance Facial Kit (valued at HK$6,600)
Dr Maryam Zamani’s MZ Skin is an award-winning skincare brand that merges medical know-how with opulent textures that defy age itself. For the ninth day of #AVeryPrestigeChristmas, MZ Skin offers an impressive collection of its precious ampoules and an instant radiance facial kit.
First up is a set of ten Glow Boost Ampoules, designed for a five-day-long ritual that’s guaranteed to restore your skin’s youthful glow and natural luminosity. The ampoules are precisely formulated with medical-grade Vitamin C, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid and a Meso Cocktail – a harmonious elixir that brightens, hydrates and smoothens the complexion.
The adverse effects of the sun cannot be underestimated, especially in a place like Hong Kong. Over-exposure to UV light might lead to age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation and not to mention the rapid degradation of collagen, and with it, skin’s elasticity. The Pigmentation Correcting Ampoules are designed as a 7-day treatment programme that combines Vitamin C, Alpha Arbutin Booster, Glutathione Booster and Tranexamic Acid Booster that promote a healthy, youthful glow and offset hyperpigmentation.
Last but no means least, MZ Skin also offers its indulgent Instant Radiance Facial Kit that includes Radiance & Renewal AHA Instant Clarity Refining Mask, Retinol Skin Booster, Vitamin C Ampoule, Lactic Acid Ampoule, Spa headband, Mask Brush, Facial Cleansing Pad and Sculpting Rose Quartz Gua Sha. This regimen delivers spa-worthy benefits directly to you thanks to potent ingredients targeted at all visible signs of ageing.
