Perfume Souk
Updated on 13 September 2017

One of the things Middle Eastern Arabs are known for is their strong, spicy fragrances and hard-hitting perfumes. The Perfume Souk is the ideal place to explore these alluring scents and a great opportunity to find your perfect one. Besides traditional perfumes (oud-based ones), shops in this market also sell branded fragrances from around the world, so it is well worth a fragrant tour of the many shops.
