What is Attar?

Ittar also known as attar is natural perfume oil derived from botanical sources. Most commonly these oils are taken from the botanical material through hydro or steam distillation. Oils can also be expressed by chemical means but generally natural perfumes which qualify as Attars are distilled naturally. The oils obtained from the herbs flowers and wood are generally distilled into a wood base such as sandalwood and then aged. The aging period can last from one to ten years depending on the botanicals used and the results desired.

 

How to use Attars
A major difference between synthetic perfumes and attar is that the oil-based Attar is worn directly on ‘pulse points’. The pulse points dispose the fragrance most effectively. At pulse points, the blood vessels are closest to the skin giving off more heat and acting like mini fragrance pumps. The warmth that emanates from body at the pulse points helps diffuse the smell of the fragrance into the air. Diffusion due to this warmth helps wearer to feel fragrance throughout the day.
 

The sensitive pulses are:

• Behind the ears
• On the neck
• Inside of the wrist
• At the bend of elbows, knees & ankles
• The chest

 

Given its natural derivation, Attar lasts a long time. Body heat only intensifies its smell.
