I'm having a one day/night stop-over in Dubai on my way to the UK.
I was wondering if anyone has been to the perfume souk (market)? Is it worth visiting? Are there better places in Dubai for fragrances?
I live in Dubai and have been a jillion times to the souks in both Deira and Bur Dubai.
Over there, you will find stuff pretty much what you have in your wardrobe.
If you're seeking niche perumes, then try to vist Saks 5th Avenue (Burjuman Shopping Mall) and Paris Gallery (almost all over town and in every shopping mall).
The souk to visit in Deira is called Souk Murshid (*u* sound as in put). You'll get the chance to visit Arabic perfumeries there too like Arabian Oud, Rasasi and Ajmal.
You'll get testers at very low prices but you should know how to haggle.
