Best Attar To Keep You Warm in Winter Season

Attars have taken the fragrance industry by storm because of their Alcohol-free nature and longevity. Attars are gaining significance and entering the mainstream perfumery business. Because of the fact that attars are the products of old ancient Arab Culture, the key factors like source ingredient, methods of preparation for most of the attars do not exist in a documented form. The renditions from oral culture have propagated the use of attars and made it popular in the present day. Although original information is not there, the basic information of the blending and mixing technique is deployed to extract attar from various naturally scented herbs, flowers, and spices.

The aromatic blend of oils extracted from natural ingredients like flower petals, herbs, and spices has the power to refresh your soul and is believed to transport your senses to a higher plane. The product is of organic nature and has superior quality, which makes the surrounding fresh and renewable. That is the reason why it forms an integral part of the prayer culture in Arab and the middle east.

But little do people know that apart from the attar being specific to a particular occasion of use, they are also categorized on the basis of the suitable season! Shocked, are you?

 Well, definitely yes, attar are made up of absolutely natural ingredients, hence, each attar has a specific season attached to it. Today, we will talk about four attar that have a special blend to make you feel warm and fuzzy when there is a chilling winter outside. 

Oud Attar

Oud, known in English as agarwood consisting of about 15 different species in the genus of Aquilaria, originates from the barks of trees that only grow in parts of southeast Asia. The highest quality Agarwood trees can be found in the former countries of Indochina, such as Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. The species known as Aquilaria malaccensis, found in Indonesia, is considered by many to be the best producer of agarwood resin. “Oud” is the Arabic term for a fragrant resinous wood. For thousands of years, it has been used in the Middle East and Asia in the form of wooden incense chips, body oils, and fragrance. 

Since this attar is made up of the bark of Agarwood Tree, it naturally tops the list. When you apply this attar, it will not only mmit the wody, incense like aroma but will surely warm you from the inside. Oud Attar can be worn by both males as well as females and is proven to suit each.

How to apply? 

  • Take a small quantity of the attar and apply it on the inner side of wrists. Then rub both the wrists against each other.
  • Apply on the inner side of each earlobe, then gently rub it.
  • These are the exterior pressure points of our body which allow the fragrance of attar to linger for a long time.

Musk Attar

The musk fragrance derives its name from its origin. According to classical renditions, the special fragrance was only found in the glands of a particular species of male deer. And the species was found in the northern temperate regions of the Himalayas. Being very rare in nature and the requirement of investing in high end techniques for extracting the scent, people started looking for alternatives. Being successful, people found that a similar scent is emitted by resins of some species of trees, including amber. From then on, a complex and handcrafted ensemble of different species producing the similar characteristic scent are used to extract what we know as Musk Attar.

Musk Attar is one of the most demanded attars in the market. It produces the richest note and is likely worn by males than females. Musk attar emits an almost similar fragrance like oud but richer. This attar is proven to raise the temperature of the body when applied in the right quantity. Here’s how.

Amber Attar

Amber is actually the dried up resin of many leguminous trees growing in the different parts of the world. The amber is known for its beauty and unique nature since ancient times. It was also worn as jewellery by ancient people. The amber is somewhat the colour of liquid gold and shines under bright light. Some varieties of amber also produce a pleasing fragrance. The resin has herbal soothing properties. It can be consumed in tea as well as can be applied directly to the skin. Its special properties make it a likable herbal element in the market

The same amber is used to extract the attar. Being absolutely natural, this attar is derived from the barks of the trees. The property of the Amber Attar is therefore of warming. The attar produces a unique aroma with warm, woody undertones which will surely relax your entire body and soul.

Saffron Attar

Saffron or ‘Kesar’ as it is popularly known in India, not only has medicinal and flavouring value but also symbolic value. Kesar is the most expensive spice which is used in Indian households. Saffron is actually the filaments of the flowers of Iris family. The plant is a rare species in itself, let alone the filament! Besides being used in highly exotic dishes in India, our very own Tricolour Flag has the colour saffron at the top. The colour signifies sacrifice. Kesar also has a lot of health related benefits.

The attar extracted from the filaments offer the best aroma which one could imagine! The saffron attar is somewhat dark yellow in colour and is quite volatile. But it is one of those attars which despite being extracted from the filaments of the flower (and NOT the barks) is capable of providing the same warmth as Oud or Musk Attar. That is why one is always advised to have kesar milk in winter.
