Immerse yourself in these oriental scents this Holy Month
Oud perfumes for the Arabian men and women at heart
Oud perfumes for the Arabian men and women at heart: Palomino:
\nUAE fragrance house Lootah Perfumes has been a favourite when it comes to traditional yet scents since the 1950s. Today, we like the signature Palomino scent for men; woody yet undeniably oriental. Lootah Perfumes offers a diverse collection of precious oud, fragrant oil, and perfumes. It is located in stores across the UAE.
L’Eau D’Issey Noir Ambre:
\nHow can a Japanese artist create breath-taking Arabian perfumes? Just ask Issey Miyake. The fashion designer’s latest men’s perfume mixes saffron, leather, dark woods and amber notes. It is priced at approximately AED485 at selling points across the UAE, including online at souq.com
\nThe bottle alone makes us want to try the notes of this fragrance by UAE-based Swiss Arabian Perfumes. The women’s scent boasts top notes of lily, middle notes or white must and base notes or musk and ambergris. It is priced at AED140 across branches in the UAE.
\nYou can count on Tom Ford to master a mean oriental mix. Not many can top up his White Suede, a favourite unisex perfume of ours, but another option we’d go for is Oud Fleur. Boasting rose and oud wood, it has just the right ratio of the two. Price? A high AED826.
Velvet Desert Oud:
\nDolce & Gabbana is another non-Arabian designer that gets it right every time when it comes to oriental perfumes. This time, our choice is the new Velvet Desert Oud; light, musky and spicy – a classic desert scent.
