Top-selling perfumes by local perfumers.


Perfumery is becoming a flourishing business nowadays. Local perfumers import essential oils, mix and match till the recipe is created, then send it to Saudi factories for bottling and packaging. Once they’ve received the oils and recipe, factories facilitate approval from the Saudi Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ensuring the safety of use. From whiffs of nostalgia to lingering aromas in memory, perfumes are timeless and personal. Here is a list of top-selling local perfumes.
