Fodor's Review

Scents play a significant role in Arab traditions. Burning herbs and incense fill a room or tent with fragrance, and natural essential oils are mixed to create perfumes for the body. Personal perfumes traditionally were a luxury for the rich and were stored in ornate bottles with tops fashioned from semiprecious stones. Even with today's international fragrance brands, you can still have your own scent mixed at the Perfume Souk. Spend time with the experienced perfumiers, as they can advise you on which oils are most suitable for your skin and lifestyle.
