Al Hamra by Arabian Oud


Al Hamra perfume oil is a fruity floral ultra light and smooth fragrance for women. It is one of the most famous arabian pefumes worldwide as it was in the nominees list at the FIFI Awards in 2006 for the best perfume in the world.

Top Notes: Apple Blossom
Heart Notes: Rose, Jasmine, Lilac
Base Notes: Himalayan Balsam Flower, Musk

It is a very smooth and fresh fragrance which I would recommend for a day use as it is light, gently sweet and close to skin.
In the beginning you smell the apple, green apples. Afterwards the apple scent is gonna minimized and mixed with all the flowers. The Himalayan Balsam Flower give it a cool touch and is damping the sweetness and the musk also,  very smoothly gives it the soft oriental touch in the background.

Wearing Al Hamra you have the feeling, walking bare-footed in the morning dew through an orchard  full of apple trees with the several flowers all arround.

The special about Al Hamra is not just the fragrance but its interesting package. The bud which is holding the precious flacon.
It's a very nice gift idea as well as a beautifull decoration for your home.

  2. Dear Sorlisa,
    I am glad you liked it. But you are a lucky one, if I have understood right you are living in London and there you can visit Arabian Oud as well as Al Qurashi perfume shops!

  3. What a pretty display! Unfortunately, my skin hates apple, so I won't persue this perfume, but I'm looking forward to hearing about the other new babies. :).

    Oh, and sorry to hear the show wasn't what you needed and that you're having a tough time with distributers. Hang in there! The right things will happen and it will all fall into place the way it should in time.

    xoxo,

  6. Dear rose,

    thank you my dear, am glad you like my reviews. It is just an intuition when I smell a perfume there automatically come pictures in my head ;-))
    As for the boxes and bottles there are many which are so beautifull that I would buy the perfume just because of the bottle :-P
