Chameli(J. grandiflorum) Supreme Attar/Jasmin flower essence in sandalwood/$275 oz. Exquisite!!!! Jasmin grandiflorum in Santalum album
flowers and heartwood of sandalwood wood
Blend of the ruh with pure sandalwood
Whither dost thou hide from the magic of my flute-call
In what moonlight-tangled meshes of perfume,
Where the clustering keovas guard the squirrel's slumber,
Where the deep woods glimmer with the jasmine's bloom?
The Golden Threshold by Naidu
Chameli(Jasminum grandiflorum) Attar Supreme is a wonderful blend of the pure distilled essence of jasmine flower essence in a rare and rich base of pure sandalwood distilled from aged heartwood from South India. Our colleagues in North India have devoted a tremendous amount of time and energy to perfecting the disitillaton of Ruh or pure essence of the flowers in traditional copper vessels.It is a very labor intensive process that can only be done in small batches and the yield is tiny but the ascent of such a concentrated pure oil is a true treasure in the world of aromatic essences. Sandalwood is the perfect medium for protecting and preserving the delicate aromatic molecules of the ruh and one of the unique aspects of the blending of these two elegant essences is that with the passage of time the attar becomes more and more beautiful such and attar will last for many years becoming more and more elegant with the passage of time. Sandalwood not only is a perfect fixative of the essence but contriubtes a rich, precioius, creamy, balsamic background for the essence of the flower which interweaves with it. Perfumers extoll the virtues of sandalwood saying that its fixative attributes our unrivaled but adding that it also has an exhalting effect on any other essence that comes in touch with it.
The special blend of the ruh of Jasmin flowers with sandalwood is a pale yellow liquid displaying a delicate, sweet, ethereal floral, fruity bouquet that is woven in, around, and through with the balsamic, precous woods notes of sandalwood. The precious supreme attar series which is composed of Gulab(Rosa damascena), Motia(Jasminum sambac), Chameli(Jasminum grandiflorum), Champa(Michelia champaca) are very elegant and refined essences that deserve careful, deep and prolonged study as the mystery of their complex bouquet gently reveals itself over time. Thye are truly stand alone perfumes in themselves but minute amounts of other essences can be added to them to created different subtle variations that delight the heart. But if one does add any other essence to them, they should do so very very carefully in percentages of 1% or less. After making any addition one should then allow the composition to mature for 1-3 months before assessing the impact of the addition.
