What is Ruh Khus Attar?

Ruh Khus Attar is a natural perfume oil extracted from vetiver roots using stream distillation process. It has a dark greenish colour with a very thick viscosity. The vetiver used in making this attar is harvested in the northern parts of India.

We offer 100% Pure Vetiver Attar, originally made in Kannauj. It is one of the most unique attar oils in the market, very different from oud and floral based attars.

What does Ruh Khus smell like?

Ruh Khus has a sweet and woody fragrance. There is also some earthiness in it. The fragrance is similar to what we might get from a wet rainforest in the early morning. First time users might find it very sharp initially but will get comfortable to its aroma in a few minutes. 

This mix of earthy and smoky smell makes it a perfect perfume for men. It has now become a good gifting option for your husband, son or father. We recommend using it specially during the summers

What is the key ingredient in it?

The key ingredient of Ruh khus attar is Vetiver. It is a native Indian dry grass which can grow up to 5 feets. It is called ‘Khus’ in hindi. But the important part of this vetiver is its roots which can go up to 13 feets deep into the soil. These vetiver roots are used in making this attar.

Indians have been using khus for a long time. It is used in making soaps and creams. People also put it inside their earthen pots to cool the drinking water. Water coolers pads are made from dry vetiver as well. Curtains made from these roots are put above windows provide shades inside a room.

How is it manufactured?

Most of our attars are made in Kannauj which is also known as the ‘perfume capital of India’. The distillers in this town are still making these natural perfume oils using the same old method devised around 5,00 years ago.

The vetiver roots are put in a big copper container called ‘Deg’. This is heated and the steam is distilled into smaller vessel called ‘Bhapka’. The extracted oil is pale yellow in color but later changes into greenish due to oxidation.
