Perfume Souk

Savour The Perfume Souk

Breathe in the rich aromas of jasmine, rose and amber as you wander through this cluster of shops near the Gold Souk in Deira. Fragrance is an important part of Arabic culture and one of the most esteemed scents to look out for among the thousands of perfumes here is oud, from agarwood.

At some shops, you can create your own signature scent - traditional oil-based attar perfumes are favoured by Arabic locals. If you're not sure, ask the shopkeepers and they will advise you on what might suit your character. If you want to stock up on incense, frankincense is the most popular. And don't forget to barter - it's part of the fun.

    The spice souk is a fun experience where the venders are cheeky and funny and want you to but things you may never probably use. I always buy my vanilla from the souk but I insist they open a new pack of vanilla for me because they tell you it lasts 2 years but I've had it sealed at home and it has gone mouldy in 6 months so be a wise buyer!!! It's a great activity to do and of course you don't need to buy anything ..... you can just go for the experience. It is right next door to the gold souk so your could make it into a dual excursion and have 2 experiences.

  • Rich array of spices
    There are so many spices here that you can find. Great place for pictures and there are sellers who are willing to explain the spices to you and let you try a little of each.

    So we arrived at the spice souk and to be honest it was really funny when you walk thought the market you come across people (men) would come up to you trying to sell stuff and the come and let you taste some it very nice there you get the touch to it so or later I think I would. Recommend going there just so you can get the experience.
