The tuberose flower is picked immediately before the buds open. It's powerful fragrant flowers continue to exhale their perfume long after they’ve been picked. Tuberose is used for weddings in the South Pacific, as an aromatic offering for prayer and intension, and as a symbol of love and beauty. The narcotic tuberose flowers are hydro-distilled into vetiver essential oil for the Tuberose Vetiver Attar.
Using a specific ancient process of manufacturing, traditional vetiver attars are not simple blends of different oils. They are the hydro-distillation of flowers, seeds, woods, mosses, and spices into vetiver. This process last for days as several distillations wash through the vetiver essential oil. The process of making and aging an attar can last from two weeks, to up to six months. Vetiver acts as an excellent fixative, and therefore the vetiver Attars last on the skin. Only a small amount is needed.
The Tuberose Vetiver Attar is pure essential oil crafted in the traditional manner of tuberose flowers distilled into vetiver, taking many days to process, and many more for the attar to mature. The Tuberose Vetiver Attar is in a base of Organic South African marula oil and can be worn as a perfume.
