About the perfumes

Scent Salim is one of very few shops in the UK to offer an array of niche fragrances, Arabian perfumes and Oud.

 This is the home of over 1,000 scents – Ilyas says they can recreate any perfume for a client. The products are made from natural and oils and sourced from all over Asia and the Middle East.

It is this concentration on genuine, quality products, from the original source that make the scents so special.

“We concentrate on the quality and that’s why we don’t want to grow too fast,” he explained 

Oud is the generic Arabic term for incense, or resinous wood taken from the agarwood tree. The agarwood trees in question are located in specific areas in the world – Malaysia, India, Cambodia, Indonesia and Brunei. The wood in these trees is of tremendous value, as the resin within them is distilled to create pure Oud scents.

Oud itself has gained popularity among celebrities, Royals and artisans worldwide. It offers a depth of fragrance, which is mulit-layered and, Ilyas explains, lasts longer than a regular “French” style perfume.

But modern methods and a bit of a French/Asian fusion makes these fragrances so accessible and flexible. They are produced in a range of options from room fragrances to fragrant woods for burning. 

There are many ready-made scents to choose from – as sprays or candles or room fragrances for example – and for the wholesale trade the car fresheners and beard oils are the most popular items.

Scent Salim is proud to boast a fabulous collection of Arabian, imperial and pure Oud sprays. These products are made from all different types of materials and natural oils and are sourced from all over Asia and the Middle East. To help us stand out from the competition and continue to create the best fragrances and perfumes we are constantly experimenting with our scents to find any new discoveries.

Scent Salim is always at the forefront of giving back to local causes. They have set up many foodbanks around the UK and also orphanages abroad. They never say know to any charitable cause, big or small.
