ABSTRACT

Kewda Attar has a rich, smooth, green-herbaceous, musky, ethereal floral odour with hints of hyacinth and honey. Its odour is remniscent of the wonderful essence of the advent of Monsoon season in India. The attar is produced from the traditional steam distillation of Pandanus odoratissiumus (Kewda flowers).

The process of harvesting Kewda flowers and distilling this attar is a very laborious and arduous process.The flowers are gathered from the wild trees, and carried in large baskets on the head, to the distillery. Then they are steam distilled very gradually over the course of many hours. The enticing and captivating aroma from the flower complements well with the Sandalwood base, creating a truly smooth and revitalising perfume.

The attar can be used as a single-ingredient perfume in itself and can be added to create exquisite floral perfumes, fruit based perfumes, earth essences, colognes, incense accords and sacred perfumes.

Difference between Ruh Kewra and Kewra Attars
In the attar, the Kewda flowers are distilled into sandalwood oil. Kewra Attar has about 4% to 6% Kewra oil, while the remainder is Sandalwood oil. On the other hand, the ruhs contain 100% pure oil extracted from the Kewda flowers. It takes around 1,000 flowers (375 pounds) to produce one ounce of Kewra Ruh. We offer both Ruh Kewda as well as Kewda Attar.
