A walk down a traditional Middle Eastern souk is a heady experience filled with the aromas of frankincense, amber, oud, jasmine and musk. Perfumes and fragrances play an integral role in the social and religious lives of Arab men and women. In fact, it is part and parcel of the rich culture and traditions of the Middle East. With a history that spans more than 5 millenia, the story of Arabian perfumery is intertwined with the traditions of the land. Fragrance Foundation, a non-profit organisation, has observed that the Gulf region is the largest consumer of perfumes in the world.
