Dubai Perfume Souk, Dubai

Dubai Perfume Souk, Dubai

Perfume Souk is a cluster of perfume shops on Sikkat Al Khail Road, to the east of the Gold Souk. Here you can find virtually any imaginable aroma, from the latest creations to the traditional Arabic attars, fragrant wood, incense burners, etc. The whole area is so intensely fragrant and spicy, just as a true oriental scent should be, so there's no chance you can miss it.

What to buy here: Perfume holders or stands – Dubai’s perfumers are of world renown. You can even create a brand new fine fragrance to match a loved one’s tastes. Classic perfume stands are designed from crystal and glass to hold some of the best fragrances that can be found in Dubai. Perfume holders come in varied shapes and sizes and your choice will depend on the tastes of the person you plan to gift it to. Most perfume stands come with a gold base with intricate carving on it. These are sometimes embellished with semi-precious stones. The body of the holder is usually of glass and in some models has some overlay work done in gold. These designs are generally Arabian in nature and reminiscent of ancient Muslim architecture. The caps of the holders are done up in myriad shapes further enhancing the beauty of these perfume holders. You can find a mind-boggling range of these at the Dubai Perfume Souk and at Al Nabeel Perfumes & Cosmetics Showroom. Perfumes and perfume stands can begin at 100 Dirhams and go up from there, depending on the ingredients used.
