1 star is for the behavior of the owner or the person who was selling at the store.
5 stars is for the amazing stuff inside.
Explanation: I spent around 15-20 minutes in there asking, in “French” language, about the ingredients of the products, how to use them, and what are the benefits of them- while doing that, I collected more than 10 items to buy!! AND when I was at the front desk (upstairs, at the second floor,) I heard the owner annoyingly saying in “Arabic” to his friend to help other customers who just came in “because this client (me) is been here for an hour asking many questions.”
I stopped and looked at him, and said in full French: “I am sorry if you are annoyed by my questions but I am not willing to spend my money and purchase stuff that I am not sure what they are for….”
The shock on his face!! It took him 30 seconds to respond and realize that I understood what he said. “Oh did you understand what I said in Arabic?, he asked. I said oh yeah. I do speak Arabic. “Why weren’t you speaking in Arabic with me, then,” he added. I said that’s not the point. And he should not have this attitude to clients especially that I didn’t asked questions and left but I bought so many products, and that I was on the edge of returning everything, not pay, and leave.

The sop is simply fun to walk through and smell the different soaps. It is beautifully decorated. The prices are good too.

This shop is the shopping highlight of Chefchaouen. It sells aromatic spices and incense. The owner is also a herbalist who has a cure for every illness on the face of the earth. He also sells more than 20 types of handmade soaps, oils, lotions and hard perfumes. You can smell Jasmine, Rose, Sandalwood, Vanilla and many other fragrances in this tiny little double storied shop. Truly a visual and olfactory delight.

So much shopping in Morocco is high pressure sales or, at least, a slightly awkward experience as the owner watches you intently, with high hopes of making a sale. This shop couldn't be more different: It is a two story shop simply filled with an enormous selection of nicely displayed soaps and oils. You can grab a small basket in which to collect your choices as you browse, inhaling the intoxicating, exotic scents as you go. Prices are clearly marked and very fair: about $3 for a good sized bar of soap. There are also cleverly bundled groups of 4 to 6 bars of soap, which make great gifts. The owner busies himself on the second floor, until you have a question or are ready to make your purchase. All & all, a lovely shop with great products and a nice shopping experience. Go!

We stumbled across this boutique while playing tourist in Chef and it became our favourite souvenir stop easily! There were sooo much natural products to pick and choose from, but the argan oil with fruit was hands down my fav. I rubbed some on and it stayed the entire day even after meals and countless hand washing. It felt really nice on the skin and seemed as authentic as it gets. Never buying the cheap drug store knock offs ever again. Also, the soaps are huge and worth the buy. I got the rose, argan and some other black one that's good for exfoliating. I also got the rub on perfume (lasts so long). Find you way here in Chef!! You won't regret it.

Also p.s. to the owner, I've tried to WhatsApp about placing an international order. Pleaseeeee find a way to make it happen. Your products are to die for!

One of the better places to eat in Chefchaouen. A variety of Moroccan fare, well presented and prepared. Bit pricey. No alcohol.

Authentic fragrance oils, pure and long-lasting. We got Black Oude (rich and woody) and Arabian Nights (smells like rose, sandlewood, amber with a top note of lily). Mesmerizing! Something for everyone: oils (available in easy-for-traveling small roll-on bottles), lotions, soaps, incense, bath salts, serums and more. Going back tomorrow for more. Highly recommend!

The store is really pretty and easily located from the main square. The good thing is the prices are fixed though I can’t say they are cheap by Moroccan standards. I bought some solid perfume (price based on weight, 10dirham per 10g?). Note: you can also purchase similar soap/perfume in the souls in Marrakech though chances are you won’t find such a huge range of choices and smells. The owner will wrap up the soap/perfume for you in pretty packages so they act as perfect souvenirs. The owner will leave you alone to choose whatever you want after explaining prices to you. I spent about 500+ dirham in the store.
