What is Kewra Attar?

Kewra Attar is a pure perfume oil distilled from kewda flowers using the traditional steam distillation method. It has a light yellow color.

The reason why we say our Kewra Attar is original is that we make it in the perfume city of India: Kannauj, where only natural ingredients are blended to make these exotic essences.

It is an Indian attar and contains no alcohol!

What does it smell like?

Attar Kewra has a sweet floral fragrance. You will find it a lot similar to honey’s aroma. It can keep you refreshed for a whole day. It is not that long-lasting but for small events, you must wear it at least to understand how amazing it is.

How is it made?

Kewra (Pandanus odoratissimus) is a big flower that looks like a corn cob. It belongs to the Pandanaceae family. In India, it is found on the coastal side of Odisha state. It has two varieties: male and female, but we use only the male plant because that is used in making attars for hundreds of years.

The plant bears flowers in all 3 seasons, which makes it an evergreen fragrance. However, our manufacturing process starts during the Monsoon season. Fresh flowers are plucked in the early morning to preserve their scent.

They are then sent to Kannauj, where we make all our attar. The flowers are heated in a big pot with water. Its steam is then captured in another vessel. This is then condensed to make our Kewra attar.

Kewra Attar Benefits & Uses

Now most consumers use Kewda attar for two main purposes: as their own perfume oil and for religious ceremonies.

There are also therapeutic benefits of meditation aromatherapy. Some studies have shown that it is very effective in controlling body temperature. It mixes well with jasmine attar, geranium essential oil, and lemongrass essential oil.
