Jasmine Sandal

From £19.00
This sensual traditional attar is made by distilling Jasmine Sambac flowers into Indian sandalwood oil using the ancient methods of Kannauj's artisans, which have remained largely unchanged for hundreds of years. A simple yet outstanding soliflore which I find beautifully reminiscent of jasmine green tea: the scent is a heady mix of Jasmine's floral, sweet, green and indolic elements, all riding a wave of sandalwoody creaminess which slowly comes to the fore as the scent progresses. If you're a fan of all things jasmine, this is a wonderful attar that's not to be missed.

Tuberose Sandal

From £21.00
First domesticated in modern-day Mexico, the fragrant tuberose flower adorned the gardens of the Maya and Aztecs before finding its way across the old world. Cultivated now in India amongst other countries, this is a traditional Indian distillation of the sweet, fragrant, and waxy-white tuberose flowers in Indian sandalwood oil. The result is this unique and beautiful attar, which displays tuberose's intensely sweet, floral, waxy, and bitter-green scent that some may find unusual, especially if experiencing tuberose for the first time. It's a complex scent, however, and one that I find takes time and patience to understand and appreciate just how beautiful it really is. • Please note that this attar may contain some sediment at the bottom of the vial, likely left over from the distillation process.
