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 as they are the last two bottles remaining
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.
Nasra nasra –
MASHALLAH just wow the smell of this oil gorgeous 😍 love it Muhammad is such a nice person and very kind thanks u soo much for the samples anybody want to try this beautiful oil do try it!!!
My first purchase and I’m already considering my next. This is a beautiful attar. The tuberose is earthy and vegetal, similar to L’Artisan’s Nuit de Tuberose but much richer and deeper because of the sandalwood. A tiny smear lasts for hours and projects surprisingly well for an oil. Also thrilled with my free sample. Very highly recommended seller.
