Furthering the business of fragrance

The usage of perfumery is an essential part of the Arab World’s culture. Influenced by a strong emphasis on personal hygiene, coupled with an ancient love of pleasant aroma has created a robust fragrance eco-system in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA).

Fragrance sales are estimated to generate $8.5 billion in MENA by 2021, an upswing from $5.7 billion in 2018. More brands, both global & homegrown are paying closer attention to the Middle East, given the region’s youth population, high purchasing power and retail development.
