Bali Perfumes?

Are there unusual perfumes in Bali that you can't get anywhere else? I love finding fantastic scents in different parts of the world. Where might I find some great Balinese perfumes, if there are any? and if not any Balinese perfumes, are the prices of regular perfumes that are commonly sold around the world cheaper in Bali or about the same price as in Canada or the US?

You can buy really lovely body oils, lotions and body scrubs with the smells of spas, flowers and other things Bali.

I would not bother with perfume there. They don't manufacture and the prices are no cheaper. Also some places keep them too long and this combined with the heat makes the odour sickly. DON'T buy cheap it is probably fake and quite quite revolting.

Get some incense, candles and burning oils also.

On my last trip a friend bought several bottles of "name" perfumes, Tommy, CK etc. They all had the same horrible alcohol smell. Lesson learned there! But the oils, lotions etc can be lovely. I would stick to them.

My favourite perfume was just as expensive in the department stores as it was duty free at home in June. But I did manage to buy it duty free as we left Bali, in the airport, $30 cheaper than anywhere else.
