    Default Muscat, Oman - shops other than Amouage?

    Can anyone recommend any perfume shops in Muscat?

    I know that Amouage is there and will visit them. I am curious to know if there are other shops which sell niche brands or older shops which may still have old stock of discontinued perfumes.

    Thanks!

    But if you do go to Amouage, please report on whether they've been reformulated and weakend down there too...

    Cacio, watered down to the max in Oman too. I had a friend do some scrounging around and it's the same as the uae/global market.

    Maybe Amouage's new Amouag'irade is h2o. [/sarcasm]

    Perhaps dry Muscat feels water is more precious than aromachemicals ....

    No hope even there, then. They evidently think that wealthy people will put up with anything, and that the local, knowldegeable customers have been imprinted by enough Western dilutions to be able to distinguish anymore.

    Oh well, money saved on Amouages ...

    Thanks, guys, but this doesn't sound very promising.

    Amouage watering down their products and no mention of other shops / brands. I was hoping to find a diversion from the technical workshop I'll be attending!

    Noggs, try to take a day trip to Jabal AlAkhdhar (green mountain).

    The rose terraces are in full bloom. At the base are the onion farms. Quirky I know but well worth a visit.

    Thanks! I'll have a couple of free days, so I'll get out of town for at least one of them.
