Bukhoor

“Luxurious scent of agarwood with just two sprays of Bukhoor layered on top of your favored fragrance.” –Suhad Al Qenaei

An unexpected fire alarm from a hotel room went on when Suhad and her sister were burning agarwood on a lighted charcoal to use after spraying their perfumes. That incident led Suhad to create a fragrance that smells exactly like agarwood in which you can spray on after you apply your favourite perfume giving you the same result of burning real agarwood.

Sedfa

"The best things happen as a result of coincidence." -Suhad Al Qenaei

Having no perfume to spray, and in a hurry to meet with friends at an afternoon tea gathering, Suhad settled for what was left of the almost empty bottles of two existing perfumes. Upon arriving at the gathering, however, the wonderful fragrance she emitted swept everybody off their feet, and they were all curious as to what the name of the perfume was. When Suhad explained how she came about it, they all agreed to name it ‘Sedfa,’ which translates to how the fragrance came to life - by ‘coincidence.’
