    Our local guide took our group to a local Cosmetic Pharmacy during the tour of the medina. The display of cosmetics manufactured from local herbs was amazing, creams, deodourants, potions to clear practically any skin complain or sun spot.

    The women loved it as sample pots continued to be passed around, the men soon became bored. It developed into a little high pressure and some of the men moved out into the street. This brought the the end of the visit as the guide could not afford to lose some of the group.

    No one purchased anything from the cosmetic shop, definetly not the place to visit with a group of men, but ideal for women.

    What to buy: Locally made cosmetics.

  • L'Orientaliste: lovely fixed price shop

    I've put off posting info about L'Orientaliste for a while as I'm mean and don't really want to share it.
    But then I figured I'm just being greedy. So here goes...
    I just love this place.
    It's run by a gaggle of francophone ladies who are very obliging.

    What to buy: Perfume, perfume and more perfume.
    They sell single scent perfumes (like Vanilla, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Gardinia) presented in handmade bottles with silver worked in Morocco. And dinky tassles on the top.
    They also sell Moroccan pop art upstairs and also high quality glassware, including the most tasteful tea glasses I've yet to find.

    What to pay: It's very easy to spent a lot of money in here. Especially as they take plastic.
