The scents of Dubai & Abu Dhabi
 
A company has launched a range of fragrances to remind you of the cities you have visted, including ones for both Dubai and Abu Dhabi. A mere 40 Euros bottles the scent of a city for you (see E-shop on page for all cities)

DXB - Rose, citrus & oud

AUH - Bergamot, jasmine & amber


So my question is - if you were to bottle the scent of one of these cities, what would you include? For me, Dubai - oud, schwarma & BO/taxis.

I thought BO was termed Dubai Perfume.

Abu Dhabi; scent of sheep/goats/goat slaughter , next to the Water & Electricity Club:D

Abu Dhabi; the scent or feeling of a scent that greets you when you catch a whiff of humidity and dust.

agree with yours - I always think of Dubai when I smell your typical lemon floor cleaner - when we first got here the hotel apartment corridors always had that fragrance - even our current building corridors have that smell... anyway...

That and Bank Street always had a hot / dusty / humid smell in Sept / Oct that was pleasant in a way and reminded you just how far from the UK you were! (in a good way)

The slightly putrefying smell of discarded trash in Dubai.

Speaking of which, has anyone else who has used the Dubai Marina Mall carpark (particularly the level you access from SZR) noticed that pungent smell of shit in the air?
