To make this incredible attar, saffron is first kneaded into a moist dough. The dough is place in a copper still in a cotton cloth sack and suspended above where warm steam passes through it. The steam transports the saffron oil from the dough into the condensing pipe, where it is carried down into a receiver full of sandalwood essential oil. The saffron blends with the sandalwood until they marry.
Using a specific ancient process of manufacturing, traditional sandalwood attars are not simple blends of different oils. They are the hydro-distillation of flowers, seeds, woods, mosses, and spices into sandalwood. This process last for days as several distillations wash through sandalwood essential oil. The process of making and aging an attar can last from two weeks, to up to six months. Sandalwood acts as an excellent fixative, and therefore the sandalwood attars last on the skin. Only a small amount is needed.
The Saffron Sandalwood Attar is pure essential oil crafted in the traditional manner of saffron distilled into sandalwood, taking many days to process, and many more for the attar to mature.
The Saffron Sandalwood Attar is a botanical perfume.
Wonderfully powerful and long lasting on the skin.
