If you plan to buy some perfumes while in Giza/Cairo, this is a very good option. It is a nice and decent shop where you can try out and buy perfumes without harassing or pressure. The essences smell wonderful and they are useful, since you can always put a few drops into creams and lotions and make some nice smelling... More

If you ever wondered about perfumes and wanted to know just how they are made , then this perfume palace is a must visit while in Egypt. Here you will be educated on the essence of perfume and of course mesmerized and confused about what to pick and what to leave.

Ended up here by mistake on the way back to our hotel one evening, the welcome was typical of the Egyptian hospitality and while we had not planned to purchase anything of this ended up as you often do in Egypt coming away with some gorgeous perfume oils.

We were not really interested in perfumes and so were not that keen on being taken here by our guide. However, if you were interested in scents, then this could be a good place for you.
