TTTR | Photography & Inspiration
The images on our site are captured by photographer by Edel Verzijl. They show our muse Empress Nur Jahan (1577-1645) the 20th wife of Mogul Emperor Jahangir. She was the most powerful and influential woman at court during a period when the Mughal Empire was at the peak of its power and glory. One ancient story illustrates that in the aftermath of a conflict between her and Jahangir, Nur decided to please the king by giving him a large banquet. She filled all the reservoirs inside the palace and gardens with roses and restricted anyone from washing hands in them. During the day the sun broke down the roses essential oils, next day morning she noticed a layer of film on the surface. Nur thought that someone had thrown fat into the reservoirs, and had the oil tested. Finding that it smelled very sweet and that it must have come directly from the rose petals, she applied this substance on the palm of her hand and realized that it was far more effective than mere rosewater. Ever since Nur Jahan is associated with the discovery of ittr.

PACHOOLI | The name, scent and history.
Moist dark earthy basement, balsamic and herbaceous with a minty woody undertone
The original name patchouli comes from the old Tamil words / patchai / meaning ‘green’ and / ellai / meaning ‘leaf’. The highest quality oil is obtained from only 3-4 top pairs of mature tree leaves, where the highest concentration of the purest oil is found. An intricate process of drying and turning prevents rapid fermentation and after following a precise method the leaves release their intense aroma. Only a small number of distilleries are specialized in producing this highly refined extract, which finds its use in haute perfumery.
There are many / health and beauty benefits / from just a few drops of Pachooli perfume oil. It uplifts the mood, drives away disappointment, and relaxes tension. This is due to the impact that inhaling the aroma of patchouli has on the hormones and various chemical reactions in the body and mind. By stimulating the release of pleasure hormones like serotonin and dopamine, feelings of anger and sadness simply disappear.
Ingredients: Pachooli contains pulverized leaves from the patchouli plant distilled in sandalwood oil and mixed with sweet almond oil.
