Accentuated warmth. Imbued sensuality. Opulent bouquet. These are the three pillars that make for the exotica of Oriental fragrances – especially those from Arabia. These are the three reasons that fragrances from the Oriental family distinguish themselves from Western or European perfume profiles. 

Their multi-dimensionality of notes is what gives Oriental perfumes their 'x factor'. Intoxicating ingredients like vanilla, musk, woods, resins, flowers, perfume oils and spices – and hints of special ingredients like amber – make for the bouquet of Oriental fragrances resonate with a magical feel. 

Wearing them as a fragrance immediately transports one to the region and brings alive the scents, tastes and visuals of that region.
