The evocative and transformative powers of fragrances bring back monumental memories and vivid imageries, taking us back in time and reminding us of myriad joyful moments. Capturing these reminiscences in every spritz are two extraordinarily crafted Forest Essentials intense perfume body mists – Sunehre Din, translating to Radiant Days, and Chandani Raatein or Moonlit Nights. In India, perfumes and scented articles have been in use from pre-Vedic and Vedic periods. A sign of wealth, prestige, and faith, scents have been used by ancient Indians for both rituals and medicinal purposes. Dhupan was an advanced method used to unearth the medicinal properties of a fragrance. Perfumes were also used to anoint various parts of the body, also known as Anulepan. Scented oils were used to massage the body and keep the skin smooth and healthy whilst also relaxing the mind. Certain pulse points for scenting are traditionally recommended to envelop the body in a veil of fragrance.
As fragrances linger, they take on various connotations, linking individuals to each other, to places, and to memories. Our fragrances are prepared using the finest ingredients, sourced from different parts of India at the height of their potency. These botanicals are then steam-distilled for their pure essential oils and floral waters, prepared with a base of Pure Grain Alcohol and hand-blended into two distinct artisanal fragrances: Sunehre Din, ideally during the day, and Chandani Raatien, an after dusk scent.
Recommended as a day perfume, Sunehre Din is an exquisite fragrance that begins with a top note of Rose Absolute that adds a sparkling dimension to the blend.
At the heart of this perfume lies Rose Absolute, which brings an inimitable character to the fragrance. Hand-plucked from the verdant gardens of Kannauj, the Desi Gulab is known to uplift the spirit and soul. The blend of Kashmiri Saffron and Marigold forms the layered notes for this fragrance, adding a magical sweet hint to awaken the senses. The Marigold flower is symbolic of vitality, while Saffron adds a rich earthy chord to the scent. At the base of this fragrance is a drift of sparkling Maulshree that is evocative of a refreshing experience.
Recommended as an after dusk perfume, this seductive scent begins with a top note of Ruh Motiya blended with hints of white Jasmine that lend a soft sensuality to the fragrance.
At the heart of this perfume lies the seductive floral overtones of Ruh Motiya and an enchanting note of White Jasmine or Nayamalika, which together bring a soft and evocative sensuality to the fragrance. Sourced from Madurai in South India, these coveted Jasmine flowers are plucked at dawn when the first rays set in and their intoxicating fragrance is at its zenith, with their petals freshly covered in a veil of dew. Infused with fragrant Golden Champa and enticing Raat ki Raani, Chandani Raatein finishes with a sensorial base note of a deeply opulent Sandalwood that has a harmonious and calming effect on the senses.
The Forest Essentials perfumes contain pure Aloe Vera juice to hydrate the skin as well as leave it perfumed with a long-lasting aroma of essential oils that leave it scented for hours.
