Arabic perfumers are renowned for their skill in combining exotic components to create one-of-a-kind, alluring aromas. Oud is one of the most sought-after ingredients in Arabic perfumes due to its powerful scent. Amber, musk, and flower essences such as jasmine and rose are other favourites and widely used compounds. Modern perfumers continue their innovation to appeal to a global audience by blending traditional components with cutting-edge twists.

How to Wear Arabic Perfumes:

Arabic perfumes must be applied carefully to achieve a long-lasting aroma. Here are 5 tips to help you make the most of your fragrances' potency and longevity:

  1. Select the Appropriate Concentration: Arabic fragrances come in various concentrations, from light blends to strong perfume oils. For a perfume that lasts for many hours, choose a higher concentration pure oil.

  2. Use on Pulse Points: Pay particular attention to the wrists, neck, and back of the ears, as these areas are closest to blood vessels. The natural warmth of the pulse spots aids in the fragrance's overall diffusion.

  3. Layering Technique: Pair complementary products like shower gel or body lotion to layer your aroma and be uniquely you. You can also use bakhoor to layer your scent. Learn more about The Art of Burning Bakhoor here.

  4. Avoid Rubbing: Refrain from rubbing your wrists together after applying perfume, as this can break down the molecules and reduce the scent's longevity.

  5. Reapply if Necessary: Reapply your perfume as needed throughout the day, especially before attending special occasions or evening gatherings. Attars are typically available in small bottles and therefore easy to carry around for touch ups.

Arabic perfumes offer a sensory journey through the rich tapestry of Middle Eastern culture. Whether you're drawn to the delicate sweetness of floral bouquets or the earthy allure of oud, there's a scent ready to transport you to distant places and timeless eras. Allow arabic perfumes to take you on a journey to the malls and airports of the Middle East or the wonderful souks and bazaars.
