Rose in sandalwood oil


“Pink rose petals water distilled in a copper pot into pure sandalwood oil is the most feminine and delicate attar from this collection.

Pure rose oil is one of the most gorgeous aromatics known to mankind. It smells of a million soft rose petals gently squeezed and brings a smile as well as positive emotions once inhaled. Sadly it is hard to use in its purest form. Pure rose oil can irritate the skin. Therefore, a rose and sandalwood combination is the best attar to enjoy the mesmerizing aroma of rose without any fear of burning your skin.

It opens up with the most delicate, soft, silky aroma of pink roses. Feminine, sensual and with a touch of pure honey like sweetness. Silky creaminess of the rose blends perfectly with sandalwood. It is a perfect couple that enhances each other’s beauty.

It is important to note that traditional Indian Attars are made solely through distillation by a master distiller. The process can take over a month. Every single day approximately 100kg of flowers are slowly distilled into the sandalwood oil base infusing it not only with extremely intense oil but also highly fragrant hydrosol of a given flower. This results in a far superior olfactory composition rather than a simple blend of sandalwood and jasmine oil/absolute.

Experience the lost yet beautiful tradition of perfumery made only by distillation. The journey that is labor heavy, extremely time consuming yet absolutely worth it.

We went the extra mile of not only selecting the large collection of highest quality attars but actually testing every single one of them for purity and quality using GCMS lab tests. It sets them apart from any other Indian attars one may find online.” –Areej Le Dore
