Dubai, UAE, November 29th 2020: When choosing the perfect gift for loved ones, there are a number of reasons why a fragrance is a classic choice- for both men and women. Fragrances are known to be versatile and can be used in a variety of ways, from being sprayed on to clothes or applied to skin, to enhancing the ambience within one’s home. They are also known for evoking emotions, can reflect an individual’s personality, mood and instill a feeling of confidence. As a gift, fragrances show loved ones that a lot of thought has been invested into buying the perfect scent. With beautiful packaging and lovely scents, perfumes signal that the recipient is worth the extra effort and expense. Additionally, fragrances as gifts often communicate your affections-love, romance or respect for the recipient.

For over four decades, home-grown perfume house Rasasi Perfumes has been regarded amongst the leading fragrance companies within the region. The brand founded in 1979, has gained a reputation for creating sophisticated and quality fragrances for the GCC and the world at large. Driven by elegance and class, Rasasi curates a varied range of rare quality agarwood, concentrated oils, sprays, bukhoors/moattars and ambience fragrances.

With the festive season around the corner, Rasasi’s experts have prepared the ultimate guide of tips and tricks to help in choosing the perfect perfume for loved ones, and also, yourself.

1: Think about who you’re buying for

It’s important to consider the personality and characteristics of who you are buying the fragrance for. If the gift is for someone outgoing, they are more likely to prefer something that will be noticed and stand out. However, if it’s for someone who is typically quiet and shy, they would prefer a lighter more subtle scent. The following scents are a great pick for both personality types.

Qasamat – Rasana is an elegant, modern, oriental fragrance crafted to offer an enriching sensorial experience and is a perfect match to a flamboyant personality. The scent opens with fresh fruity notes of lemon, apple and bergamot.

Qasamat – Bareeq is a beautiful and intriguing journey of self-exploration. Celebrating Europe’s modernism, the deep spiritual serenity of Asia, and raw natural beauty of Africa through alchemic nuances, Bareeq encompasses a diverse universe uniquely blended together.

 2: Do they already have a favorite

It’s time to do some digging. If you don’t already know their favorite scent, and can’t find it on their vanity, try offering them a compliment in order to understand their choice or preferences. Armed with this information you will save time and stress, simply tell the sales executive what they already wear and stick to the same category (floral/ fresh/ woody). This way you are bound to pick something they will love. Here’s Rasasi’s go-to pick for something fresh and floral to suit either him or her.

Sotoor – Raa is an exuberant fresh, floral perfume that reminds you of sunny skies.  This intensely heady concoction of romantic florals is lent a sparkling luminosity by the playful bergamot and citrusy opening notes. Nutmeg infuses a subtle spicy touch to the elegant fresh green note of lily-of-the-valley and the bright easy elegance of jasmine.

3: Day or Night

Think about their style and when they are likely to wear perfume. Will they be more likely to wear it to work during the day or for a night out with friends. For a daytime scent, select a lighter and more floral perfume. However, something warm and oudhy is much better suited for the evening. If you are looking for the perfect evening scent, we recommend trying this Rasasi favourite:

Junoon – Velvet, Pour Homme is a warm and sensuous fragrance that spells confidence and stature. Deep, powerful, leathery, and ambary note of labdanum is heightened by the clary sage.

Junoon- Leather – Pour Femme is a unique and elegant manifestation of the chic modern woman. The perfume opens on fresh spicy notes. The sensuous rose is lent a fresh bright profile by jasmine and muguet while cedar wood and patchouli lend the perfume a dark, intense, woody depth.

4: For when you are still in doubt

If you are still unsure about what to buy, your safest choice is the most popular choice. Speak to the sales consultant and find out which scent is a best-seller. Alternatively look for a gift pack with multiple different scents, that way you will have a variety of options. Try this Rasasi bestseller.

La Yuqawam – Tobacco Blaze revels in the unfolding opus of the signature leather accord of the LaYuqawam masculine series as it melts into audacious aldehydic notes, fashioning a perfume that pays ultimate homage to the warm, dark, intense, yet sophisticated sensuality of the contemporary man.

La Yuqawam-Jasmine Wisp is a distinctive white floral vanilla scent laced with generous ambry pear juice and hints of citrus along with appetizing notes of Bourbon vanilla, coumarin, and maltol giving the scent a gourmand touch.
