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.
Collection: Kannauj Chronicles
In the Kannauj Chronicles, I explore and share with you the wonderful natural oils and attars of India’s historic perfume capital, Kannauj. The oils in this collection are pure botanical extracts and attars distilled in sandalwood oil by some of Kannauj’s most renowned and trusted artisans, who share our passion for distilling the highest quality of aromatics and attars.
These attars are distilled using the ancient ‘deg and bhapka’ apparatus; a traditional distilling method largely unchanged for 400 years. I hope you enjoy these breathtaking scents of nature from a bygone era, an era fast being forgotten in today’s race towards modernity and industrialisation at all costs.
Simple but beautifully packaged and is ideal as a gift.
Very good jasmine/sandalwood attar and definitely a brand I want to explore.
Delivery time was reasonably quick and secure.

This review is for Pink Lotus, as the Jasmine had run out, and they kindly offered the more expensive Pink Lotus as a replacement, and I really appreciated that. I got this as a present for my mum as she likes the traditional style of Indian attars. She was really happy with it as such fragrance oils are hard to come by these days. I’m still keen to try the Jasmine when it gets back on stock.
