Arabic perfumes have a distinct and exotic scent that makes them unique and instantly recognizable. They offer the wearer an experience of rich luxury, and the warmth of a heritage that spans millennia.
Perfumes and scents have come to play a very important part in the everyday life of Arabs. They are one of the first civilisations in the world to have adopted perfumes as a part of their daily life. The use of perfumes in Arabic society dates back almost 5,000 years. In fact the modern perfume industry owes a great deal to ancient Arabic perfumery.
