Artisanal Attars made with Oud and Essential Oils. Agarwood and fine Incense blends for enjoyment and healing

I've been interested in fragrances from age 5 and I can vividly recall playing with my father's colognes as a child. I loved smelling great and I would spend a hours at a time smelling his colognes and organizing the bottles. By age 20 I became a spiritual seeker of sorts, developing a interest in meditation and mysticism. In my personal studies I realized that most of the wisdom traditions used a form of incense during ceremonies or worship. Around the same time I discovered aromatherapy through essential oils like sandalwood, patchouli, and vetiver. Studying massage therapy for several years I often incorporated aromatherapy in my healing sessions. Focusing on Thai Yoga bodywork and ayurveda lead me to using attar oils to enhance and facilitate meditation. At which point I was introduced to agarwood and oud. I’ve been working with oud for 11 years creating attars inspired by the Hindi tradition. I also offer bespoke fragrances which I have done for 8 years.

Frequently asked questions

Do you use any alcohol in your blends?

Our attar blends are completely free of alcohol but may contain traces of some solvents.

What if I have fragrance sensitivities? Can I still use these oils?

We understand many people are sensitive and have allergies. We always try to use the highest quality oils. Most oils should not bother those with allergies however we cannot be sure and recommend you try a 1ml trial size before purchasing.

Can I return an item if I don't like it?

We do not accept any returns due to the personal nature of our products. Please be aware that our fragrances are blended with sensitivities in mind but due to individual skin chemistry you may not react favorably to everything. It is always advisable to order 1ml trial sizes first if you're not sure that something will work for you. We also recommend that you dilute all essential oils before skin application.
