Did you know that over HALF of the global supply of perfume comes from jasmine flowers in a small village in Northern Egypt?
The village is called Shubra Blula, and I came here today before sunrise to learn all about the process, which is fascinating!
During the peak season (which is now), thousands of local residents spend their entire nights hand picking these beautiful white jasmine flowers directly from the plants. Then, they are sent to a nearby factory to extract the liquid which is then sold to Paris, New York, Hong Kong and all around the world to be bottled up into perfume.
Who knew that Egypt is the king of the perfume world? I surely didn’t before this trip!
