Arab scents are generally more spicey than floral, but you can get all types in this fragrant street, from the traditional blends of perfume oils reminiscent of incense to the latest parfum pour femme from Paris. If you can't find what you're looking for there's someone here who can make you a bespoke copy, and what would be nicer than having a 'signature scent', especially if it's one blended using oils that compliment your skin and lifestyle?

If you're sharing the store with a lady in a burqa, watch as she tests the scents via incense smoke, more demure than the western tradition of the 'spray-by' in department stores!
