AJ Arabia – Black Collection – Black I
An olfactory ode to Arabian hospitality which suffuses an oriental-woody aroma that is both spicy and warm. Black I from AJ Arabia is like a welcome respite after a long journey where our olfactory host greets us with friendly notes of Cinnamon and cardamom. We are drawn to the inner sanctum where we are invited to relax amidst soothing notes of precious frankincense, cypress and sandalwood.
We revel in a wonderful cloud of sylvan-cinnamon notes: On the one hand aromatic, dark green notes that carry resinous balsams, and on the other hand the delicate, subtle and spicy sweetness of cinnamon, which never acts dull or one dimensional in this majestic sylvan landscape, but experiences an interesting sense of depth. Somewhere in the middle, notes of dark, soft-melting chocolate are wonderfully wrapped in a cooling veil of incense. Presumably, this chocolate impression is due to the sandalwood that exudes its wonderful presence.
Black I is more than just a fragrance, it opens its heart and soul to us and, like the perfect host, offers us an experience never to be forgotten.
Flacon and Packaging
The flacon and packaging design for the Black Collection was inspired by the grandiose architecture of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which was officially opened in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates in 2007. It is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest in the world.
The interwoven pattern on the flacon and packaging reflect the careful design of the arches and domes of the mosque and thus emphasize the uniqueness and quality of the olfactory treasure contained within.
Opening the packaging is like opening a door to another world, where the familiar and unknown combine to provide a magical experience.

His olfactory journey began in his homeland, the Arabian Desert, surrounded by the aromas of oud, amber, incense and rare Arabian flowers. From his extraordinary passion for perfumes, Ali Al Jaberi was inevitably drawn to Paris, the traditional center of the perfumer’s art. There he met the “nose”Jean-Claude Astier and fulfilled his dream of learning the fine art of perfumery.
Upon returning home, Ali Al Jaberi united the treasures of the Arabian Desert with the secrets of French perfumery and created veritable fragrances that tell of his journey through two worlds.
