I have always loved wearing perfumes from an early age and ever since I have lived in the UAE I have fallen for the Arabic inspired scents and now I am hooked, there is no real comparison to the heavily marketed international perfumes you can buy from any store. These Arabian perfumes are 100 times more long lasting and the scents are truly magical. My favourites are from Anfasic Dokhoon especially Shay Oud.

Anfasic Dokhoon is a UAE produced brand meaning “Breathing Incense” in Arabic  and is completely true to their perfumes scents. You would have definitely smelt their amazing Bukhoor walking past their store in the malls, and my love for the brand came after I had taken testers of the perfumes and placed them in my handbag. Every time opening my bag and thinking what is this delicious smell and then realising it was from the testers I had to go and buy the perfume 🙂

 My favourite perfume is Shay Oud meaning “Wow Oud” in Emirati dialect, and it has the most amazing scent of any perfume I have ever smelt and I fall in love with it every time I wear it. It is truly unforgettable and is a blend of Vanilla, Agarwood (Oud), Lavender, Luban (Frankincense) and Lemon. If you are adventurous and want a true Arabian scent I would highly recommend Shay Oud, but if your not and like a more sweeter scent I would recommend Shay Rose, January and Sukur (Meaning sugar).
