Wax perfumes from Junaid

I love Arabic perfumes for their grandeur and authenticity. The scent, packaging, and weight convey the richness and generosity of Arab culture. But for someone who is constantly on the move, it's not practical to always carry a bottle. Which is why Junaid's flat wax perfumes are so ideal. Packaged in a swivel flat container that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand, these perfumes capture the grandeur of Arabic fragrance and can instantly transform your mood.
My favorite of the moment is Dhahlan (ذهلان) which is a blend of oud and rose. You need just to rub your wrists in it softly for a lasting scent. There are several different scents from very traditional (Gharam, which has Cambodian oud) to contemporary (like Qiyyem) so whatever your taste, you should find something you like.
If you haven't used these before, RUN, don't walk, to your nearest Junaid store.
Where to buy: Junaid has stores at Seef Mall on the ground floor and Bahrain City Center in the Arabic suq section.
Price: Dhahlan is BD 8; Gharam is BD 12.
