My friend and I just got back from Marrakech. We had really nice time and on our last day we decided to treat ourselves with a nice perfumes. So we went into the shop, everything was clean and nicely presented. The owner was very friendly. Prices were high but we didn't mind paying for a good quality products. It is how we thought they were good quality. Once I arrived home and opened the perfume I was shocked , it was absolutely different smell, nothing to do with the original perfume they have in their tester bottles!!!!!! I was very disappointed with my purchase. I believe it is very unfair to customers!!!!

Je suis désolé de constater que vous et votre amie soyez déçues de vos achats.
Je suis surpris de vos propos puisque les huiles de parfum choisies et donc testées le jour même par les clients viennent directement des jarres et transvasées dans le flacon de leur choix.
Aussi le parfum choisit ne peut en aucun cas être une contrefaçon.
Les ingrédients sont indiqués de façon transparente et tous les produits peuvent être testés sur place, sans testeur mais en ouvrant un produit neuf à la demande du client.
Mes nombreux clients qui apprécient mes produits sont satisfaits et sont par ailleurs des clients réguliers ce qui est un gage de leur confiance.

So I wanted to go on a trip in Morocco and as a woman I had to buy large quantities of argan oil and other beauty products, typical for the country. I read so many articles and reviews on the net and even on TripAdvisor, but still wasn't sure and convinced which is the best place to go. I checked some when there and wasn't sure in the quality offered. I learned that in Marrakech I will always be fucked up, because it's almost impossible to find the "true thing". I asked in my hotel, which I liked very much, so I trusted the staff as well. They told me about this place Aromatimri and I decided to give it a try. I entered and find a totally different place from all the others in Marrakech - only there the Argan was placed in glass bottles ( even though not dark ones) and in aluminium containers, as it is supposed to be. The smell was a bit strange to me, but it's the true one and the sediment was there as it should be ... the color also was the true one. The staff showed me how they produce it, it's not extracted by hand as it is supposed to be, they use a machine to do it, but I didn't care about this. I don't know how much this is essential for the final quality of the product, but it was the only option I had. In other places where they pretend to extract the oil by hand, the oil was definitely mixed with olive oil AND I DO KNOW THAT SENT VERY WELL. So it wasn't real anyways. So in Aromatimri the products seemed to be what they are supposed to be. I was of course impressed by the hospitality and professionalism of Youssef and he was very confident in his work. I bought large quantities of Argan, then some black soap (an amazing product), Argan butter (love it!), the glove to scrub the body (heavenly soft skin after use!), and of course some Saffron, which is the Morrocan or rouge as YSL says. Still haven't tested it, but should be extremely precious. Bottom line I wish Youssef was offering the option to buy online, but I hope is coming soon! We wait for the website to get ready too! Greetings from Milan, Youssef! I hope to see you soon again! :) and good luck!

They shop is amazing. It has a very big variety of oils including Argan oil and herbs oils-all of them smell so good!! I got a bottle of the bamboo oil, its quality is very high and it has a beautiful smell. Besides that I got the girofle cosmetic oil which is also great.
If you are in Marrakech and you want to get some beautiful cosmetics for you or your friends, this shop is highly recommended for visiting!

Well laid out shop with a friendly and informative owner who is happy to talk to you about the products he makes on site (he'll show you the argon oil press too). The ingredients are pure and the scents are lovely - not too strong like all the other shops in Marrakech that we found. We wanted several of one type of soap so he made it for us on the spot and made us tea while we waited. He is able to communicate his passion for the ingredients and the benefits of his products in many languages (but without the hard sell that you usually get in Marrakech!) and the prices are very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit and great for gifts for family or friends.

I had an amazing experience with the owner and alchemist, Youssef. He took the time to show me around the store, including his cold press in the back room for extracting Argan and barbary fig oil. It's clear how passionate he is about his work and producing quality natural & pure soaps, oils and herbal blends. Youssef mixed me a blend of herbal tea for sleep and another for weight loss. We drank mint tea and talked about everything from how to identify quality saffron to the benefits of using black soap. His prices are fair and the quality is exceptional. iI bought a bunch of delicious pure perfume oils, soaps, barbary fig oil, argon oil and teas and I will definitely see Youssef again!!! Thank you, Youssef!
