I though I had lost this precious thing…
I bought it back in 1999 in a cultural and ethnographic fair.
This is an attar, a perfume made the traditional way, in India. It has no alcohol whatsoever and its oily texture makes it last for a looooooong time!
It still has the same musky, flowery aroma from when I bought it!
I’m so happy I found it!
