With International Fragrance Day, an entire day of appreciation dedicated to the beauty staple in all of its forms, fast approaching (March 21), there’s no better time to consider enhancing your wardrobe with new evocative scents. Rasasi’s line-up of perfumes deserve a top spot on your fragrance shelf. And what’s more? Mother’s Day is around the corner, so if you’re in need of a covetable gift, these exquisite beauty offerings will make an eye-catching present to give (and to get) too. Read on for four exquisite scents from the Middle Eastern perfume house to bump to the top of your fragrance list.
Somow Al Rasasi – Wajaha, Dakhoon
The newest addition to the fragrance house’s range, Somow Al Rasasi, is an enchanting oriental journey, symbolic of the warm Arabian hospitality. This incense opens with delightful notes of rose fused with rich, dark blends of oud, and sandalwood to create a luxurious, mysterious, and long-lasting scent.
Musk – Hareer
As part of a fragrance trilogy, Musk- Hareer boasts the precious, animalistic note that has been part of the perfume alchemy for centuries. This scent opens with the fresh, aromatic notes of artemisia and davana, before intricate layers of rose — from royal rose and Turkish rose essence to Egyptian rose absolute — cloak you. Raspberry zest, woody sandalwood, palisander, and sultry amber round off this intoxicating scent.
Nebras Al Ishq – Wahaj
Plucked from Rasasi’s unisex Nebras Al Ishq range of refined fragrance oils, Wahaj features an addictive bouquet of lotus flower, jasmine, orris, and damask rose accords. The intoxicating oil can be worn alone and massaged directly to the pulse points, or layered with another fragrance for a unique, one-of-a-kind scent that will trail behind you long after you’ve walked out of the door.
Nebras Al Ishq – Shorouk
Inspired by aroma of the Mediterranean, Shorouk is a unisex fragrance oil comprised of crisp top notes of bergamot, orange, and lemon. White musk, bourbon vanilla, and amber harmonize the notes, creating a modern, sophisticated finish.
Rasasi stores are located across the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman, including the following leading malls: City Center Mirdif, City Center Deira, and Mercato in Dubai; the Abu Dhabi Mall; City Center Bahrain; Gate Mall in Kuwait; Oman’s Avenues Mall.
