Culture Flash - Amouage
Being meticulously groomed, freshly pressed and smelling delightful is the Omani way. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the luxury perfumery Amouage started in Oman. When I cross paths with locals I am often entranced by their exotic perfumes and am confident many of those seductive scents come from Amouage.
The internationally recognized brand opened its new factory and visitor center for their 30th anniversary. You can call ahead to schedule a tour or swing by any time. The tour is short, informative and interesting. Your first stop is a hands-on introduction to the individual ingredients and perfumes, next you'll learn about the perfume making process and last you sip tea or coffee while checking out their full product line. Every detail from the ingredient extraction to hand packaging is carefully attended to at Amouage.
