A good selection of essential oils

Had the opportunity to visit the place. We went as a group and ended up buying a set of 4 big bottles of the oils. The stuff seems good and leaves a lasting odour on the body.

Very interesting to hear the salesman explain about the different essences and perfumes. Prices are though, extremely high.

We purchased six of the 250 ml bottles of oil after a group sales pitch. The bottles were glass with a small plastic insert as a seal, which they then covered with lots and lots of 2 inch packaging tape. When we got home two weeks later, however, two of the six bottles had leaked, leaving half of one and... More

They have a large selection of fragrances. Prices are a little high but I found half a dozen excellent fragrances. They are not oil based so there is no fear of staining the clothes, neither are they alcohol based so no fear of allergic rashes. Lotus, Papyrus, Jasmine, Mint and Lily of the Valley are particularly good.

Please take this warning fellow travellers our travel guide was through MTS from herguada. What you get to smell in the shop, what they show you, is not what they pack for you. They wrapped the boxing with so much Sellotape that i decided it was best to keep it that way for the flight home they. When opened they... More

I was fortunate enough to visit Egypt in 2006, I've purchased oils from Luxor to Hurghada and the "BEST" were the oils I purchased at the Perfume Palace in Giza! My favorites are Lily of the Valley and Gardenia! Still have some and would love more. I make my own perfumes using these oils and vodka! :). Hope to return... More

When I got home I had an empty box from the Egyptian Perfume Palace. I did not receive the perfume. It is sad to be disappointed. My recommendation is to not have the box packaged and taped up but to see the actual perfume and purchase.

I was going to just stay on the bus, but at the last minute I decided to endure the "hard sell" - I'm the ultimate skeptic, but I got sold pretty early by the mint oil, and my girlfriend liked the Camphor oil - long story short, we spent about $115 (4 for the price of 3) and are totally... More

Small place, with lots of scents. There is an area where you can have a custom made scent made for yourself.

The first experience of this place is a kaleidoscope of aromas. They show live demonstrations of perfume preparation through plant extracts. The place is lined up with creative hand made perfume bottles. The perfumes sold are a bit expensive, however it is safe to buy from here as you know this is authentic stuff.
