SULTANATE OF OMAN:
With its deeply embedded love for perfumes, and its reputation throughout history as a land of fine fragrances, Oman is perfectly positioned to host an event of the Oman Perfume Show’s stature.
In Dhofar, in the southern region of Oman, some of the finest frankincense resin in the world is harvested annually from groves of Boswellia sacra trees. On the mountains of Al Jabal Al Akhdar and Al Jabal Al Shams, splendid and subtle aromas can be found infused into the villager’s locally distilled rose water – a luxury product that is highly sought-after throughout the Gulf region and Middle East. Through Oman’s souqs and marketplaces, visitors can embark on a fragrant adventure of a lifetime, as their sense of smell is treated to beautifully exotic aromas from the Arabian Peninsula and far-off lands.
And all around the Sultanate, the people of Oman continue their love-affair with fine fragrances and perfumes, as they make use of exquisite scents in and around their homes, and for personal adornment.
