What Makes It Awesome

Old City’s Famous Perfumery Centre has been around since the 50’s. A pioneer in blending fragrances of any kind, this store across the counter is a giant but simple box with racks hoarding several bottles of perfumes sourced from different corners of the world like Dubai and France. Then there are those made at home, right here in Hyderabad. Authentic aromas are freshly blended by these perfume masters and sold in large numbers. These are a combination of natural blends and synthetic blends made using skin-friendly compounds.

Some of the scents that have been blended with an Arabic texture include names like Danish, Marwan, Crystal, Simra, Jannet Ul Firdous, Motia, Arsh, and Faraz. Out of these Marwan, Crystal, and Simra are the bestselling ones, we hear. They also have Kashish, an ittar made from a variety of flowers. This is one scent that keeps bringing people back to the Famous Perfumery Centre apparently.

Another reason why this perfumery is famous is because it can give your favourite scent a personal touch. If you think your favourite perfume would smell better with a dash of jasmine — no worries! Get it to Famous Perfumery and they will make a brand new scent for you exactly like that. If you want to re-create a favourite perfume too (from any part of the world) —  you can bring it to their store, and they can make a 90 per cent accurate replica of the same apparently. If that is not reason enough to hit their store ASAP, we don’t know what is!

The good news is that at Famous Perfumery Centre, prices start at a mere INR 40, but can go up to a whopping INR 12,000 (for 10 grams). They sell in sizes between 3ml to 500ml, or you can request a specific quantity and place a bulk order. 


Among other things sold here, you can find henna cones, fuller’s earth packs, hair oil, and the likes.
