Perfume Trail

“Perfume is the most intense form of memory.” ~ Jean Paul Gaultier

Our perfume tour promises to sweep you away in an intense wave of incense.

For a greater part of this journey you will be transported back to the grandeur of India’s ancestral heritage. Arrive in the capital city of Delhi to the dual façade of the charming old city, and the lively new city. Proceed to Jaipur, Rajasthan, to witness the imposing and opulent architecture of its Forts and Palaces.

The next leg of the journey is dedicated to the Mughal era. This era is where the history of perfume-making in India originates. Fall in love with the transcendent Taj Mahal and visit the ancient Mughal capital of Fatehpur Sikri. Proceed to follow the trail of scent, as you visit two important perfume centres, Kannauj and Hasayan. Learn about the extraction of ittar, perfume oil , from various botanical sources. The essential oils are sold in small quantities due to their high concentration.

From enveloping scents carry on to the warmth and hospitality of the ‘City of Nawabs’, Lucknow.

The city is rich in culture, arts and crafts, and it is touted as India’s best culinary destination. Complete your journey in India’s most spiritual city, Varanasi. The city is a heady experience, with an atmosphere rife with prayer and incense. An early morning boat ride on the Ganges and the Ganga aarti (prayer ritual) will move you to the depths of your soul.

This journey is an intoxicating and soul-stirring one.
