My mother often half-jokingly says that I eat toilet paper and drink perfume. That’s in reference to how fast I use up each of these items. Let’s leave the first item alone for now and focus on the second, perfume. Well, not really perfume itself, rather I’d like to talk about where to purchase perfume in Nairobi and tell you how I came to settle on my current preferred perfume shop.

Buying Perfume in Nairobi
One Last Perfume Shop
Not about to spend my entire day off performing work-related activities, I called the office and told them that I was unable to find the item at the required price. Although the item was widely available, I hadn’t been able to find it within the required budget. My colleagues thanked me for my efforts and continued looking for the item elsewhere. I, on the other hand, proceeded with my day as I had originally planned. One of my next stops was Nakumatt Ngong Road, where I needed to purchase some items. As I stood in the checkout line at Nakumatt, it occurred to me to check out Sensations, the perfume shop at Nakumatt. I wasn’t very hopeful, but I thought, since I was already there, I really had very little to loose.
Believe it or not, Sensations stocked Cool Water at exactly the price I was looking to pay! After conferring with the office, I quickly purchased the cologne and off I went on my merry way! I had never paid much attention to Sensations before then but with retail prices being 500-1000 Ksh below anywhere else I had looked that day, I made a mental note of it.
A couple of months later, when I noticed that I was running out of perfume without any air travel (or visitors) in sight, I decided to make a stop at the same perfume shop, Sensations, to restock. My heart settled on Rose Essentielle by Bvlgari. Again, I was not disappointed. I purchased this perfume at only a little more than I would expect to pay at a duty free counter.
So there you’ve got it. According to my informal survey, Sensations is one of the least expensive places to buy authentic fragrance in Nairobi. Do you, my reader, know of any other that you would like to recommend? (The perfume shop at Westgate Center seems to also stock a wide variety of perfumes for OK prices, though I’ve not paid that close attention to their pricing so please don’t quote me.)
