ATTAR of ROSES natural perfume oil is a dance of Rose and Patchouli. It’s said, in Hindu perfume traditions, that patchouli is an ideal fragrance partner to rose. Patchouli tenderly embraces the delicate heart of the rose-bud, and gradually, lovingly unfolds her to reveal one thousand fragrant petals.
Quite surprisingly, Attar of Roses opens on a sharp, thorny story of dark woods and patchouli. As you enter the forest, the woods yield to reveal a secret rose garden of sublime romance. Grounded always by the backdrop of dark woods and patchouli, the roses are corralled by raw scents of the natural world, never becoming sickly or cloying.
Attar of Roses is a natural rose garland comprised of Rose Damascena, Fir Needle, Cypress, Mysore Sandalwood, Amyris and Patchouli. A transcendent perfume for devotees of the rose.
