A lot of nations in this world don’t place such a high demand on stuffs that transform the natural fragrance of the human body. Since I knew virtually nothing regarding Oman prior to touring here, I idealistically had the preconceived belief that it may be one of those destinations.
However, after arriving in Oman I learned from my group leader that my imagination was absolutely incorrect. Here in Oman, people pride themselves on smelling of lovely and rich perfumes. In fact, it is an important segment of their customs that, right from birth, the Omani folks are decorated in unique fragrances, like rose oil, sandalwood and frankincense. Well, it does not stop there. The utilization of perfumery became a form of artistic self expression. Omani folks learn the art of wearing diverse perfumes according to occasions, mood and seasons; perfumes are applied to the individual, hair, garment and smoked into the air.
Amouage – the king of fragrances:
Discovered more than a quarter of a century before, Amouage is a luxury perfumery that brings inspiration from its origin of the Sultanate of Oman, imparting reference points from a colorful and rich legacy that sparks the imagination of everyone who come into touch with its magnificent products.
This perfumery is placed in Oman, just outside of the town of Muscat. A bunch of small constructions, it’s overshadowed by a massive new construction that’ll lodge the entire operation when completed. I was fortunate enough to witness the Amouage perfumery in Muscat. I’ve come across many Amouage fragrance shop in shopping malls here in the Middle East, but did not understand what it actually is. Most fragrances in Muslim nations are composed of pure oil essence only. There’s some alcohol in Amouage, which lightens it up a little, but it still possesses the closeness and lasting authority of the oils. A lot of are truly heavy in myrrh and frankincense, and I was amiably amused at the number of lighter permutes available.
The fragrance brand has developed in Oman via Amouage’s existing property in Muscat. The 2-storey perfume house opened its gates to travelers to witness the different phases of perfume making from constituent maceration to bottling & packing and also clarifying the fragrance extraction procedure.
We also visited a room that lets us know regarding the complexities of Amouage perfumes, those of which were separated into individual fragrances. A station full of constituents enabled us to have a closer glance at both the individual notes concerned in the fragrance making procedure and how exceptional these Middle Eastern scents are in comparison to what I am familiar with smelling back home.
During my Amouage Oman tour, I had learned so many things. Though the Amouage fragrances are a bit expensive, but when you see the attention that goes into making it, you can comprehend why.
