    Default Egyptian perfume?

    A close friend will be traveling to Egypt in Sept. ( her husband is from Egypt) and would like to bring some perfume back for me. I have no idea what is available there so I was wondering if anyone here at BN could recommend something. They will primarily be in Cairo.

    I've read that kyphi is an ancient recipe of perfume that you can still find in the markets there. Might try Googling for it to see if it would interest you.

    I just came to this thread, apologies if this is too late.
    They might see perfumes by Swissarabia, which is produced in the United Arab Emirate.
    I have one called Hamsa which is powerful and complex. But they have several scents listed on their website.

    I wonder if the perfumes there are alcohol free. Someone recently brought me alcohol free perfume from Thailand. I found it unwearable, but it might be the scents that were chosen rather than the lack of alcohol itself.

    Thanks for the reply. My friend left for Egypt early Monday morning. She was able to get some info from a couple that recently moved here from Cairo so it will be interesting to see what she returns with
