Fragrance is a key hallmark of Arabian life, represented by the exotic array of scents you’ll pick up wherever you go. Some are mild, others more evident, while some are particularly potent. But each one will draw you in with a natural sense of inquisition as you figure out which ones suit you best.

Dubai’s Perfume Souk will beckon your attention in many directions, with every changing breeze likely to divert you to its piquant source.

Across hundreds of different stalls you will find thousands of traditional Arabian scents which can be tested via incense and can even be purchased as a stick, powder, crystal, rock or wood element. Learn all about oud and bakhoor and the many intricacies of these fragrant materials.

For a truly unique scent, you can even ask for a fully personalised aroma to be created based on your skin type and personality. You can return home armed with your very own fragrance to wow your friends.

  • Chocolate dates and dried flowers tea
    We took the water taxi for 1 dirham per person per journey to get to the souk. There is a corner shop called 'Happy Life'. The salesman was very friendly and he gave us some White chocolate and dark chocolate dates to try. He spent a lot of time trying to sell us the saffron and the menthol but we did not buy. He was cool with that. Not too pushy. We bought 3 jars of mixed flower tea and 1 kg of chocolate dates for 300 dirham ( White, dark and milk chocolate with whole almond inside the dates). These items are not available to buy in the Abu Dhabi airport so if you want them better to buy them in the souk. In addition, I forgot to buy camel milk chocolate in the souk and I couldn't find them anywhere in Abu Dhabi airport. So make sure to buy it in the souk or supermarket if you like them.

  • Spicy
    Step back in time. Spices, caftans, scarves, ceramics, perfumes, ver aggressive men trying to get you into their shops, all calling out and pushing their wares. Be strong!! Bartering is necessary inflated prices of up to 400%

  • A tourist trap
    Do not take the time out of your trip to go here. We were offered 'BBQ Spice' ! ! ! This souk is simply a tourist attraction and not a genuine spice souk at all. Such a huge disappointment, BBQ spice and tourist plastic rubbish on sale and pushed in your face at ever corner of the souk.
