Strange to read some of the negative reviews of Siwa in Giza. We were taken there by our guide after we requested to go to a Perfumery and a Papyrus Shop. We were not taken there against our will. Once there, we got a very welcoming presentation of the glass blowing and a review of the products....probably the same routine as other people have received. We bought 6 bottles of essence and oils. Have now returned to the US almost 3 weeks after we visited Siwa and our products still smell as nice as they did there. No obvious separation as one would expect from a diluted product. The "tests" with rubbing into the skin and the tissue test for excess oil have all proved positive. The essentail oils have been use tested by a friend who is a licensed message therapist and she says the oils appear to be real to her. She also said that the bottle of Sandal Wood Oil we bought for approx. $50 US would sell wholesale to her for over $500 in the US. We have not invested in scientific product analysis, but we are using the products and happy.
So, really cannot understand the negatives on the Forum. Don't doubt what people are saying, but wonder if they (Siwa) only cheats some people? Are they under new management? Have they read the Forum posts and cleaned up a dirty act? Strange!
