FAQs – Swiss Arabian India


1. Why is the brand called Swiss Arabian?
Carrying a legacy rooted in a blend of western & oriental craftsmanship, Swiss Arabian is a brand founded on duality that proudly celebrates the space in which two seemingly opposed worlds come together.
An agent for Givaudan entrusted us with the distribution of Givaudan perfumes in Yemen and soon requested us to do this for the whole GCC region.
An ode to the collaboration with the Swiss perfumery giant Givaudan, we decided to keep Swiss Arabian as the name of the new company to be set up in Dubai in 1974 as the first perfume manufacturing house.
