- Motiya Jasmine Attar Perfume- Concocting Attar of Kannauj
It is created using an ancient technique, a highly labor-intensive and time-consuming hydro-distillation process, called ‘deg bhapka’. in Kannauj, Uttar Pradesh- the only attar-making hub left in India. Kannauj, known as “perfume city of India”, has been concocting attar (also known as ittr) since the time of Emperor Harshavardhan (r. 606–47 CE). The technique is unchanged for 1000+ years. The entire distillation process is eco-friendly, and there is minimal wastage.
Usage: It can be used directly on the skin by applying and rubbing a few drops on the wrist or on the back of the palm. It can also be used on clothing by applying and rubbing a few drops on both palms and then gently brushing the palms on the clothing.
Care: Store in a cool & dry place
