2/ Our Approach

1 / Our Collections

Our perfumes are classified into several collections that each has a main olfactory theme.

- The "Oud (R)evolution" collection brings together our agarwood oils.
- The "Musk (R)evolution" collection brings together classic musk but also enhanced variations.
- The "Collection Privée Al Faransi" is the house ambassador. It is a luxurious collection of fragrances in the Arabian style. Its fragrances have a woody base and impress on the olfatory senses.
- The "Master Chef" collection brings together the finest and most exquisite woody fragrances.
- The "Freestyle 3.0" collection is composed of unexpected encounters of sweet or fruity scents with the classic bases of the Maison Al Faransi: oud, musk or amber.
- The "Prestige d'Orient" collection is a selection of fine and floral fragrances.

3 / Perfume for men or women

The concept of perfume for men or women appeared in the nineteenth century with the advent of modern perfumery and for purely commercial purposes. Many experts say: perfume has no gender! Take the example of the rose, perfume for women in the West, its scent is very popular with men in the Middle East.

Although today, big perfume houses admit the error and are turning little by little to the notion of mixed perfume, a long olfactory education was needed to get there. At Abdul Karim Al Faransi, we refuse to classify our perfumes by gender. Nevertheless, we have included descriptive nuances: "rather masculine" "rather feminine", "suitable for these ladies as for these gentlemen", because, whether we like it or not, the notion of gender for the choice of perfume is still very present in people's heads.

A "rather masculine" perfume generally has a strong, powerful, imposing scent. A "rather feminine" perfume will be rather gentle and delicate. And so it happens that some women appreciate the Oud, which is rather masculine, and that some men choose sweet and flowery perfumes, which is rather feminine. And in truth, there is no harm in this because the perfume is intended to delight you, to offer you a feeling of well-being, not to dictate codes of conduct created for marketing reasons.
