A culture beautifully bottled…

After the Shisha shopping spree, we hit the local perfume shops because we knew we would not get these abroad again! I have been desperate to show off the beautiful, beautiful bottles they handcraft and sell here…

I tried to take pictures of as many as possible without getting into trouble; these are works of art and there are rival perfume companies all over the Middle East- big market! The locals consider perfume as an everyday important part of their appearance and presentation (men and women alike) but the Arabic perfume differs greatly to the western market scents; they are stronger, more spicy, herbal and somewhat simular to incense in the smell.

Apologies for simple iphone snaps but I think you can still see most of the details…enjoy!

Not only does the smell inside reflect in the design on the outside, to me these bottles sum up this region’s style, fashion and atmosphere… every word you could use to describe these bottles and their scent completely applies to the culture!

Have a creative evening!
