Incense burners are very important in Emirati culture. They usually burn their bakhoor soaked in fragrant oils and oud in mabkhara and pass it on among their guests as a gesture of hospitality. Bakhoor is also used as home fragrance and some women are using it as clothes fragrance especially with their abaya.
I snapped this photo with permission at my favorite perfume store in Khalifa street. This is my second photo that undergone processing with color splash using an Adobe Photoshop CS3. Whew! It took me an hour to finished this one. Thanks to Youtube tutorials. :)) By the way, incense burners in this photo are not the mabkhara. I'll try post something about it sometime next month.
Word of the day: mabkhara is the Arabic word for a traditional incense burner. Salaam!
