Attar Perfume Oil

Attar is an ancient Persian word which means “essence” or “sweet smell”. This describes what many people consider to be the finest alcohol-free perfume oils in the world. A genuine, well-made attar will consist of a highly concentrated aromatic oil, usually non-irritating to most skin types, that presents a scent unlike any traditional perfumery product. Attars are made so well that a tiny drop can provide lasting enjoyment for many hours. It is important to mention that our oils do not include any animal-derived ingredients and are cruelty-free. Attars are not essential oils, in the sense that they can be comprised of several to up to 20-30 different raw materials, flowers, essential oils and perfumes. Attars are usually blended with carrier oils such as jojoba. Although some attars may come in a pure essential oil form, they do not claim to have the same natural qualities, simply because the purpose of attar oils, rather than being a therapeutic product that benefits one on a molecular or herbal level, is to deliver its benefit in the form of a scent. In genuine attar oil, what is important is the quality of the scent, which most attar lovers consider to be mentally and spiritually transforming.
