Motia Attar

Jasmine in sandalwood oil


Jasmine sambac water distilled in a copper pot into a pure sandalwood oil is the most masculine and uplifting attar from this collection.

Once it touches the skin it blooms with a blissful, piercing, intense green, sweet and indolic notes.

Projecting strongly once applied it covers a wearer in a truly exotic cloud of floral and fresh goodness. Sandalwood provides a perfect creaminess that compliments the floral note throughout the whole life of this olfactory composition.

The most enjoyable part however is the transition to long lived heart notes when the creaminess of sandalwood starts to overtake the floral aspect. This harmonious battle is indeed worth experiencing.

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
