The old souq is filled with the traditional moroccan soap and argan oil but this was an exception. I found this shop accidentally when I was searching for an old shop recommended by a friend.

So, talking about the stuff sold in this shop, it is all natural and you can talk and discuss with the workers there who are really oriented and know what they sell there. The business owner is passionate about his work and he has been specialised in this business.

You'll find the oil extraction machine and the soap processor as well and they might offer to show you how they work with both to make you a fresh product.
They have a variety of products including soaps, oils, scrub, creams, lotions, perfume oil and much more.

The products that I've used and really liked include: sugar body scrub with orange scent (this is really recommended I used it even as lips exfoliant it is really excellent), the freshly made soap bars with perfume oils, the moisturising 7 plant face mask and the bamboo perfume oil (relaxing scent before sleep).

The prices are well shown so you dont need to bargain and you won't be pushed to buy. And as me and my friends ve used the products, I found the prices reasonably acceptable.
This shop is highly recommended especially if you want to buy the products as a gift.
I wish we can purchase these products online.
This shop definitely deserve a revisit.

Thanks Aromatimri team.

I am very disappointed with this shop.

Shop assistance Youssef claims that everything in his shop is handmade, and that all the stuff he makes himself. He showed me an Argan Oil pressing machine at the back of his shop. So I was convinced that despite big prices his whop will offer true quality. He is offering perfumes, soaps, herbal tea, argan oil, creams, spices etc.

After buying quite a few items Youssef did not give me any discount, not even 1 dirham! Normally, if you buy several items in Moroccan Medina, you will get a discount, but he made me pay full price, as was showing in a price tag. And remember, his prices are many times higher than elsewhere.

Having returned to my home country, not only the perfumes I bought have leaked (despite being sealed in a plastic cover), but they did not smell the same as in the shop. The smell reminded me of my toilet cleaning products. For the price I paid for them I could have better bought a Chanel perfume!

The quality of the products in this shop are just like that of rogue sellers on Jemaa Square (with a price tag of 10-20 times more).

I don’t mind paying 10 times more, if I am getting a quality product in return. Unfortunately, this was not the case here. Save your money and time!

Je suis navré de vous savoir déçue par vos achats malgré toute l'attention que j'accorde à mes clients en leur proposant des produits de qualité.

Je mets un point d'honneur à confectionner mes produits avec les meilleurs ingrédients afin de préserver la confiance de tous mes clients dont certains sont fidèles, qu'ils soient locaux ou touristes.
Les prix sont clairement affichés. Les ingrédients sont indiqués avec une grande transparence.
La confection de chaque produit est faite en faible quantité. Et comme vous avez pu le constater, le client choisit lui même la quantité désirée dans les différentes contenances des flacons vides proposés. Ainsi en transvasant les huiles dans les flacons choisis, le client est assuré d'avoir réellement ce qu'il a testé et senti le jour même de son passage.
Je regrette fortement que vous gardiez un jugement si dur à mon égard, aussi, si je vous ai froissé par une quelconque maladresse, vous m'en voyez désolé.

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!
