The makers of the Attar have returned perfume to its purest form, retrieving centuries-old skills from the legendary Arab perfumiers to create the most exquisite and sensuous of concentrated essences.

Following in the tradition of the first oil-based perfumes, the Attar is a natural oil, a precious golden fluid that melts into the skin leaving a clear, iridescent wake resonant with a supremely rich, warm and voluptuous fragrance.

The Attar is light but long-lasting, melting into the skin and reacting in a subtly different way with the chemistry of each individual to create an intimate and unique experience.

The ceramic applicator wand achieves complete harmony between bottle, fragrance and skin.

The fragrance opens with an explosion of wild, characterful elements: bitter orange, pine, black pepper and saffron. The heart of the composition is sensuous and warm, with mid notes of neroli, jasmine, black rose of Turkey, myrtle, cinnamon and cardamom resting upon a profound, woody and seductive base of cedar, sandalwood, vetiver, myrrh, frankincense, amber and musk.

The elements combine to create an initially radiant, sunny and exuberant perfume which evolves into a serene, hypnotic and all-enveloping fragrance and leaves a sense of timeless modernity in its wake. Lágrimas de la Alhambra is a contemporary fragrance which vividly recalls a magnificent history.

Lágrimas de la Alhambra concentrates and exudes the essence of the early natives of Granada - a people of poetry, arts and ornamental gardens - who transformed their home into a universal paradigm of beauty concealed behind steep, cubic towers. To set foot in the Alhambra is to enter a multifaceted realm of geometrical designs, verses, scents, and the ubiquitous play of light and shade. The experience is as sensuous as it is spiritual, as earthy as it is ethereal. “I am a garden adorned by beauty” is the message proclaimed at the entrance to the Sala de Dos Hermanas (Hall of the Two Sisters). Once inside, another inscription reads:

“Never was there seen a more pleasantly green garden, with more scented places or sweeter fruit.” The pleasures afforded by spending time in such an extraordinary place are recalled in the rhythmic verses, sinuous lines, lapis lazuli arabesques and gilded decorative motifs that adorn its walls and provide the inspiration for this gentle fragrance and its receptacle. The bottle is crafted from golden lustreware, the ceramic decorative technique which filled the Nasrid living areas with light and colour and was the greatest achievement of Moresque and old Andalusian ware. Both fragrance and bottle evoke a deeply-felt, intense sense of Granada and offer a memorably beautiful stimulus to the visual, tactile, olfactory and poetic senses.
