National Museum Oman Displays Rare Perfume Bottles

Muscat: Embodying the historical value of the frankincense tree, the National Museum Oman displays at the Land of Frankincense Gallery a collection of perfume bottles dating back to 1983 made of crystal, gold (24 karat) and silver. The collection stands as the first aromatic innovation of Amouage Perfumes.

The perfumes were presented by late Sultan Qaboos bin Said to his guests. The three fragrant flasks depict Oman’s three greatest natural treasures namely frankincense, rose and amber along with other rare ingredients. Frankincense was and still a bridge of communication and highly regarded globally.

One of the perfumes’ shape was inspired by the Omani dagger. Another perfume has a cubic design plated with gold and engraved with delicate decorations, while the design of the bottle cap was inspired by the dome of the mosque.

The museum also displays a perfume bottle in the form of “Lily of the Valley” from 1931, made of crystal and designed by “Rene Lalique” in Paris, the French Republic. The perfume bottles will be on display at the museum for a duration of six months.
