Oil based

There is a new category that is emerging, and that is an absolute oil, instead of mixing with alcohol, the perfume oil is mixed to a oil based solvent, like coconut oil (which is fragrant free!), this is becoming very fashionable in the Middle east, because some religions do not wish for alcohol to touch the skin. It allows to carry a very small bottle, as it lasts for a very long time. Some brands have brought out pens and serums in this format.
