It's hard not to notice Sifr Aromatics in Arab Street. Not only is the shop a beautiful space, customers – tourists from Japan travel here to visit the shop – flit in and out, often with purchases, and always happy with their buys. Perfumer Johari Kazura who runs the store has a way with scents, and perhaps it's really in his blood. His family has been in the business for years before he decided to branch out to do something more experimental.
One of the services he offers is the customisation and he is very open to your suggestions. No matter the requests – whether it is to bottle the scent of the Caribbean or to include ginger, he handles it as a new adventure. Go crazy with your ideas, although do put some thought into it of course.
