How To Use Concentrated, Arabic Attar Perfume Oil?

Most perfumes available in the shops and High Streets feature a high alcohol content, often even up to 95%. The pure perfume oil content in the alcoholic mixture is just a relatively small percentage of 5-20.

Our concentrated perfume oils don't contain any alcohol. They are therefore much stronger than the Eau de perfume or Eau de toilettes we are used to. Please perfume oil carefully to avoid an overwhelming, unpleasant result. Mostly just a few drops of the concentrated perfume oil are enough for a pleasant smelling effect.

The Classic Way To Apply Your Perfume Oil

The classic, traditional way to use a perfume oil is to apply the fragrance indirectly to the garment/clothing you are wearing. The perfume oil can be applied with the roller head of the perfume bottle or with the applicator stick. Put one or more drops of the perfume oil into the palm or rather the inner wrist and lightly rub the palms together. Now gently apply the perfume to the cloth by striking the palms over the fabric. In doing this, you prevent soiling clothes and ensure that the perfume oil spreads evenly over a large part of the clothes. 

However, always consider the sensitivity of the clothing or the colour of the garment. Lightly coloured or sensitive fabrics such as silk should be tested in a non-visible place beforehand. This security measure is especially recommended for darker oils.

Applying The Perfume Oil Directly On Skin Or Hair

Apply small perfume drop on your inner wrists, behind your earlobes, jawline, hair tips or into the tips of your beard (If you are wearing one.).

The sillage of the perfume often doesn't start instantly. Don't be tempted to apply more oil quickly, but instead, wait for a short time. Perfume oils get stronger when they get warmer by your skin temperature and your movements. A "Top-Up" is always an option later, but weakening the fragrance afterwards if you have used too much is quite tricky. 

A Little But Important Advice 

How long a perfume lasts on the skin also depends on the respective skin type. Dry skin, unfortunately, has a very negative effect on the durability of the fragrance. Under unfortunate circumstances, the perfume only lasts for one or two hours, which of course is not a nice and satisfying result. Here, small tricks such as using the perfume oil directly after the shower or moisturizing the skin with an odourless lotion or an oil-water mixture can help.

Note: As with all products, please take care when using perfume oils for the first time. Don't use them internally; keep them away from your eyes and mouth. In case of a skin rash or itching, discontinue immediately and wash thoroughly with soap and water. See your doctor if necessary. Keep fragrances away from children.
