The majority of perfumes and fragrances are manufactured artificially using chemicals including alcohol and, in some cases, can turn out to be lethal when smelled whereas Attar is one hundred percent pure and made from nature’s natural resources.

Although Attar is immensely popular in Middle Eastern countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh it has become popular in the United States, Canada, Australia and some parts of the UK and Europe such as Turkey.

The reason for this is because Attar’s are eco-friendly, long lasting and free of alcohol.

In India there is a colossal market for the popular bottles of fragrances importing them from across the globe, so it is fair to say that the best Attar can easily be discovered in the Indian market.

Indian Mughals

The essence of luxury has been relished on Indian soil since the time of Mughals, who, along with their wives were extremely fond of fragrances and it is claimed that attar oils added a better quality of life for the Mughal Emperors of India.

According to studies men who wore a pleasant fragrance before going out or attending an official meeting appeared to be more and confident and admirable as compared to the ones who didn’t.  In order to fulfil this requirement for men it is recommended to use INDRA SUGANDH BHANDAR Attar Astgandh Perfume.

For Women

Indian woman

All women naturally want to dress up elegantly and bring out their charm especially when attending parties or some special family function.  The most significant role of a woman’s dress up is played by the perfume or scent she wears, which brings out her feminine charisma and refreshes even the mood of passers-by who get the chance to relish the aroma.

Most perfumes or fragrances only last for a few hours requiring a second or third application and by doing so the volume of perfume used will soon be exhausted leading to another purchase and further research into the best and most long-lasting perfumes which can sometimes prove to be expensive.


The best Attar for women is INDRA SUGANDHA and presents you with Extox Fragrance Pure Natural Original Alcohol-free Kesar Chandan Premium Attar which is regarded as the best Attar for women.

It is a unique blend of Chandan and Kesar which are two of the most precious and expensively fragrant spices and gifts of nature. It has a sweet aroma that evokes grandeur, intensively beautifying the wearer. 

Unlike most Attars this one can not only be applied to your clothes but to your arms, neck, wrists and behind the ears.  This enticing aroma is offered in a tiny fashionable bottle with a very reasonable price and is ideal for any occasion.

Oud is one of the most expensive and sought-after perfume ingredients in the world.  It has a highly intoxicating musky fragrance which has been widely used across India, South Asia and the Middle East for centuries.

In today’s age a large number of perfumers in the West have been using it as a vital ingredient for creating fragrances for both men and women.

Oud however is already being used as an ingredient in many of the Attars across Southeast Asia and the Middle East.  The best oud Attar in India is considered to be SUGANDH BHANDAR Agarwood Oud Perfume. 

This Oud Attar is a pure form of agarwood which is commonly used in incense sticks and bears a tantalising essence.  Its aroma stays for a prolonged period and in some cases does not wear off.  It is a natural luxury and is free from alcohol making it an ideal choice for Muslim men.


Sandalwood is also considered to be a blessed spice giving a rich, sweet, balsamic fragrance with fragile wood tones. 

The Attar made out of sandalwood has an exotically subtle woody aroma and the colour ranges from golden to pale yellow.

The title of the best sandalwood Attar in India is given to Parag Fragrances Sandalwood Attar and is made from a blend of natural oils of numerous extracts of sandalwoods and flowers which releases a long-lasting aroma which cannot be missed in any gathering.

During the summer period India can reach temperatures of up to 45 degrees centigrade and under a heat like this all Attar’s fragrances tend to fade, and we are left with the horrible stench of sweat combined with moisture which is highly unpleasant.
