WHAT IS THE LIBRARY
The Library, is a semi-book library but instead of books, it is perfume. An idea that have evolved from perfume collectors and a business-oriented people whom in real life are brothers. Khaled Alnuaimi started by collecting fragrances at an early age which have led to the creation of what is now “The Scent Library” at his house. His brother, Saeed Alnuaimi, dived in the idea to creating an unprecedented way of helping customers find their scents. This is where “Marash” was founded in 2016. It included at the time “Libraries” as it referred at our boutique of Woody, Spicy, Musk, Oud, Citrus, and many more.
We simply organized the scents according to its main accord. Now, the Library is an expanded version of Marash and was established year 2018 which hosts more than 20+ Olfactive libraries and more than 40+ Niche and Indie-Niche brands. We are focused in creating an intellectual space of informative tools used to explain to customers the importance behind scents, their creations, and the noses behind each house. Much more, The Library includes segments that interactively allow a customer to experience perfumery in another way.
The idea and concept of The Library has begun year 2015 with a small display and section of niche perfumes. The brothers were inspired to expand more after receiving good feedbacks from customers. It all started with passion and inspiration.
