Hamlet perfume is back (with confused English)

Anyone who grew up in the 80s in Lebanon still remembers the Hamlet ad - though not sure the perfume per se. And so it is with exceptional surprise I see Hamlet is back. I mean maybe it was not away (though certainly it was quiet!) but it came back without any doubt! Ads on the streets and an online presence. Now I am not sure about their English though:
Meaning either it is "elegance and prestige" or "elegant and prestigious" but "elegant and prestige" is - ahem - wrong. As the bard said "something is rotten in the state of Denmark".
