We are delighted to share our new range of attar style ancestral scents with you, we’ve been looking forward to sharing some of our most precious aromatics in their pure form and in a format we love and now we can.
Pure unadulterated raw fragrance, zero synthetics, that capture the true essence and vibration of the plants, people and terroir.
This is rare and raw fragrance at its best. Simple wearable expressions of the plants, trees and flowers.
Blended and bottled in an ‘Attar style’ (traditionally Attars are co-distilled with sandalwood oil, more on that soon) these are blended by us in very small quantities and decanted in to traditional glass bottles.
An incredibly beautiful expression of pure Jasmine sambac (motia) flowers infused into a sensual sandalwood distillate.
Jasminum sambac: An undiluted pure distillation of the hand-picked jasmine flowers, distilled in minuscule quantities by Deg Bhapka hydro distillation in Kannauj, North India.It takes around 40 KG of flowers to produce just 6-8 gms of Motia oil, it’s avery precious oil indeed.
This distillate gets to the very heart of jasmine, with an energy and vibrancy like few others we have tried, it’s not just sweet florals, this is ethereal multi-dimensional raw fragrance at its finest.
Santalum album: A beauty of a sandalwood oil from Indonesia, extracted from the heartwood of25-30yr old trees from sustainable forests on Timor Island. So elegant and pure, a wonderful expression of sandalwood heartwood, with a sensual finesse on the skin.
Gulab or 'soul' of the rose in the Urdu language is a breathtakingly beautiful expression of Rosa damascena infused into a sensual sandalwood distillate.
Rosa damascena: One of our favourite rose distillates, a very precious freshly distilled Damascena rose (gulab) from our friends in Hasayan, North India. Again produced in very limited quantities, it requires 4000KG of picked flowers to produce just 800gms of this oil.
A form of time travel this expression of the Damascena takes us to places, past, present and future like few other rose oils have.
Santalum album: Beautiful sandalwood oil from Indonesia, extracted from the heartwood of 25-30yr old trees from sustainable forests on Timor Island. So elegant and pure, a wonderful expression of sandalwood heartwood, with a sensual finesse on the skin.
Pure wild-harvested vetiver roots beautifully distilled in copper, bright emerald green in colour, rich, earthy, deep, complex and dynamic, a wonderful expression of pure vetiver.
Ruh Khus (Vetiveria zizanoides), traditional hydro-distillation of wild-harvested vetiver rhizomes in copper stills. The vetiver rhizomes were harvested and distilled between February –March 2020 in Hasayan and Kannauj in Uttar Pradesh. The oil of Ruh Khus is a beautiful emerald green due to its conversation with the copper vessel.
We hope you enjoy these precious oils as much as we do.
